Meghan Markle has always carry around an aura that makes her special one of her movie directors Tim Matheson has confirmed, and little wonder why British Prince Harry insisted it was going to be her “Love” or no one else’s.
Hollywood actor Tim Matheson, 72, in 2011, directed an episode of “Suits,” in which the Duchess of Sussex starred, the director revealed to Page Six that even at that time he knew there was something about her that makes her special, saying “she was charming and she had an aura about her that was special.
Mr Matheson continued, “I could see that she had a very unique quality and the camera loved her. For me as a director, she was easy to shoot. Just point it in that direction, it’ll be fine.”
The director also admitted according to report that he doesn’t have any vivid recollections from their time together, but, he, however, does remember that she was “great, very down to earth and there were no airs put on.”
According to Mr Matheson, the series is about a nurse practitioner (“This Is Us” actress Alexandra Breckinridge) who leaves Los Angeles for a remote North California town.
“It’s sort of an old-fashioned look at a small town, small-town values, people taking care of one another and the values of living close to each other and having to get alone,” he hinted.
Mr Matheson, who has kept more than 60-years acting career and best known for playing Eric “Otter” Stratton in “Animal House,” said he almost didn’t get the part, confessing, “I was desperate to be in it. I had to overcome many hurdles. They didn’t want to see me, they said I was a surfer or a cowboy, I wasn’t a preppie, I didn’t do comedy.”
Matheson opened up on the fact that co-star John Belushi, who battled drug addiction before dying of an overdose in 1982, was “on very good behaviour. I do know that [director] John Landis said to him, ‘No drugs on set! You be on good behaviour.’ And there was on time, it was such a rush and whirlwind.”
Matheson explained that Belushi’s drug abuse went out of track when he was touring as half of The Blues Brothers, and said while recalling their friendship, “I was one of the more straight ones, I wasn’t in that drug culture, so we shared more sober moments. I went to a Blues Brothers concert at Universal and he had a bodyguard to keep people away from offering him drugs because everyone wanted to party with John.”
