WE all know that Meghan Markle was an actress before her new role as Duchess of Sussex.
But she wasn’t just Rachel in Suits, Meghan also starred as a bed-hopping, drug-snorting party girl in The Boys and Girls Guide to Gettting Down. Here’s how you can you watch it…

The Boys and Girls Guide to Gettting Down: Why is Meghan Markle set for a surprise return to the big screen?
We’re more used to seeing her smiling and waving at the cameras than snorting cocaine, but now get ready to see the Duchess of Sussex as you’ve never seen her before.
The former actress may have given up acting to marry Prince Harry, but her 2011 TV show – The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down – has now been picked up for film distribution in America.
The tongue-in-cheek show follows 20-something singles clubbing and partying in LA over the course of a single night.
In a far cry from her prim and proper Suits character Rachel Zane, Meghan plays single Dana, who is shown shimmying into a skintight dress before a night out.
When her friend, Heather, says she didn’t think Dana was on the hunt for a new man, Dana insists: “I dress this way for me. I’m not looking for a guy tonight. Trust me.”
A voiceover explains that Meghan’s character is also jealous of Heather’s ample bust.
MEGHAN CUPS HER BREASTS

As Meghan cups her own breasts, the narrator adds: “She’s considering buying a pair for herself.”
The two girls then head to a nightclub where Meghan’s character can be seen snorting a suspicious substance that looks like drugs.
When the show was released in 2011 it only lasted one episode because telly executives decided they did not want a whole series.
But Artist Rights Distribution is planning to re-release it as a film later this year, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Shortly after appearing in the racy comedy, Meghan landed the role of Rachel Zane on Suits.

Is Meghan returning to Suits?
TV bosses want Meghan Markle to reprise her role as Rachel Zane in Suits for one final brief appearance, reports claim.
If the Duchess of Sussex, 37, says yes, sources claim NBC Universal will pay a multi-million dollar donation to the charity of her choice.
The Mirror reports that NBC Universal is planning a cameo role of less than two minutes, which could be shot in the UK.
Meghan’s baby bump could be written into the script as her character Rachel got married in her final appearance last April.
One senior production source told the newspaper: “We could be done in half a day or less.”
He added: “No final figure has yet been arrived at but negotiations are likely to be opened in the very near future. I’ve heard sums ranging from two to six million being kicked around and that sounds a lot – but it would be one of the biggest marketing coups in TV history.”
Since the Royal Wedding, syndication deals for all seven seasons of the series in which she starred have been struck with TV stations in dozens of countries.
In that last episode of Suits, viewers saw Rachel marry law firm partner Mike Ross, played by Patrick J. Adams, who left the show at the same time.
The source added: “We could create a storyline where Rachel and Mike have created new lives for themselves and are starting a family, with Rachel showing an obvious baby bump.
“I believe we could get away with only one or two lines from Rachel, perhaps saying how she would never have believed she would have such a wonderful life. This particular route would beautifully mirror real life.
“It would give one or several charities a big boost, portray Meghan as a thoroughly modern royal… and give us one of the biggest ratings blockbusters of our existence.”
