Patrick Adams is an actor on the TV show Suits, which—besides being a popular legal drama that’s been on air for six seasons—also features Meghan Markle, who has skyrocketed to fame recently thanks to her official romantic association with Prince Harry. Adams and Markle also happen to play love interests on the show.
