Australian model Lisa Gleave said about Meghan, 38, the actress was "calm but very cute".

"I remember that she focused very much on her acting career and her role as a briefcase beauty, as we were called, was only a stepping stone in her career," she said Gold Coast Bulletin.

& # 39; She only played a few seasons and then got her role in suits that took her away. I was so happy for her when I heard about the marriage. & # 39;

"I'm particularly a fan of Meghan," said Chrissy Teigen Mail on Sunday last year. "I was in a deal or no deal with her and she was lovely. Now everyone is asking me what she was like and I say, "Excuse me, no mess. She is beautiful."
