25 surprising facts you won’t believe about Meghan Markle

Familiar with Hollywood since childhood

Meghan was born and raised in Los Angeles under the name Rachel Meghan Markle. Although she was not a child actress, she was familiar with film sets as her father, an accomplished lighting designer, took her on his sets after school. She used to run around the sets and enjoyed her time being there with her father. It is said that it was then that she realized she would like for herself to become an actress one day, and she did go on to become a very successful one.

For 10 years, her father, Thomas Markle, worked on the set of “Married … with Children”. Thus, little Meghan spent her time between a private Catholic school with a strict atmosphere and the sets of the most daring shows of the 90s. However, she was not allowed to watch the shows at home. “A lot of times my dad would say to me, ‘Meg, why don’t you go help out in the make-up room over there? It’s a little inappropriate for your 11-year-old eyes,” Meghan told Esquire. That was something that helped preserved her innocence growing up.
