MEGHAN MARKLE is set to return to acting with a bang as she has clinched the starring role in an upcoming remake of an Irish classic.
Ms Markle, who was best-known for her role in US show Suits, put her acting career on the back-burner when she met and married British royal Prince Harry, but the couple’s recent move to America indicated the actress may be making a return to Hollywood.
