Suits cast favourite Patrick J. Adams, 39, has opened up about his friendship with his former co-star Meghan Markle, 39. The actor admitted that although the pair have “spoken and texted a couple of times” since she embarked on her new life in the Royal Family, he feels “a little scared” to call her now.
The Mike Ross star, who was among guests at Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry, 36, in 2018, divulged when quizzed on what holds him back from calling his former on-screen love interest: “Quite frankly, I think I’m intimidated.
“I have no doubt I could pick up the phone and call her at any moment, but I don’t know what I would say.”
Patrick explained he and the Duchess of Sussex did exchange messages after she gave birth to her son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and he and wife Troian Bellisario welcomed their daughter Aurora Adams.
The Canadian star continued: “After our children were born, there were some texts sent and gifts sent, but I guess I’m a little scared.

“I think it’s pure fear. I guess I’m scared about the idea of breaking through whatever walls exist to have that conversation.”
Patrick also revealed he doesn’t spend time with Meghan anymore because of how “enormous her life has become”.
He admitted to Radio Times: “We’ve spoken and texted a couple of times, but Meghan’s life is incredibly full and she’s been navigating a lot.
“We don’t spend any time together, but that’s not because of anything other than how completely enormous her life has become in so many ways.

He added: “Meghan is an incredibly strong and powerful woman.
