Patrick J. Adams may have criticized his Suits co-star Meghan Markle when he was asked at the Golden Globes if he would work with Duchess again.
In an interview with E! The actor stopped short of giving a resounding yes and apparently avoided a direct answer by saying that the industry would be “lucky to have her back.”
The actor, who played Mike, the husband of Meghan’s character Rachel, on the legal drama, made the comments during an interview with E! at the 42nd Golden Globe Awards.
After host Keltie Knight joked that there was a rumor that “Meghan would act again,” she asked, “Would they team up again?”
Meghan herself ruled out acting again, but despite it being a light-hearted question, Patrick wasn’t willing to commit.

“I think Megan is a fantastic actress, so we would be lucky to have her back in the industry. Sure,” he said.
Only when he was pushed, about a piece of equipment, did he say: ‘Yes. I’m ready, let’s go… Mike and Rachel in Seattle.’
The show has recently seen a boost and has become extremely popular on Netflix since Meghan married Prince Harry, 39.
When asked if the show was as popular again, Patrick said he felt “honored.”
He said: “I am totally amazed that it has found a second life.” I feel honored.
‘You know, when you leave a show, you think that’s it and then you’re going to move on to something else.
“And just knowing that a whole new generation of people are finding it and loving it, loving it almost more than they loved it the first time, is incredible.”
During the interview, Patrick was accompanied by his wife Troian Bellisario.
The couple married in 2016 after meeting on the set of Equivocation and share two daughters.
When asked if they would work together again, they said they loved doing it and despite needing a break after collaborating a lot, they did a good job together.

Meanwhile, Gina Torres, who played Jessica Pearson in the US legal drama, revealed on Sunday that the former co-stars simply “don’t have her number” when asked if anyone had contacted the former actress.
Patrick J. Adams and Gabriel Macht, who played lawyers Mike Ross and Harvey Specter on the show, presented the award for best television drama before being joined by fellow stars Gina and Sarah Rafferty.
But Meghan, 42, did not attend the star-studded 81st annual ceremony in Los Angeles along with her former colleagues.
The cast members of the TV show Suits reunited on the Golden Globes stage Sunday night, but one notable star was missing.
Speaking to Variety at the Golden Globes, Gina seemingly revealed the reason for the Duchess’ absence.
One interviewer asked: “Who texted Meghan and said, ‘You have to come to the Golden Globes, Meghan Markle’?”
‘We don’t have his number. We just don’t do it. She will see it. She will look. She will be happy that we are here,” said the 54-year-old American actress, who attended the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan in 2018.
Also at last night’s awards ceremony, presenter Jo Koy sparked outrage with a savage barb aimed at the couple during his opening monologue.
He began by calling the Royal Family ‘rich, white and dysfunctional’ in a joke comparing HBO’s Succession to Netflix’s The Crown.
Then, moving on to the Sussexes, Jo commented that the couple are being paid “millions for doing absolutely nothing, and that’s just from Netflix,” prompting big laughs from the audience, including one from Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos. .
The streaming service reportedly paid £88 million ($100 million) for the couple’s 2022 docuseries as part of a multi-year deal with the streaming giant.
Jo’s joke was seen as a ‘brutal’ dig at the couple following a tumultuous year that also saw their lucrative podcast deal with Spotify canceled after just one season of Archetypes, hosted by Meghan. Spotify executive and podcast guru Bill Simmons later labeled them “scammers.”
And charitable donations to his Archewell foundation also dropped by around $12 million in 2023.

Adams played con man-turned-lawyer Mike Ross, who became Harvey Specter’s (Macht) protégé on the show. Rafferty played legal secretary Donna Paulsen, while Torres played managing partner Jessica Pearson.
Last night, Variety asked Gina about Sunday’s Suits reunion and the interviewer asked, “Did you plan this? Is everyone texting each other?
She explained: ‘When everything happened, we were all texting each other. Yeah, our text thread is crazy right now. So it’s very exciting.”
Speaking about Meghan’s absence, a Globes source told Page Six: “We asked the Duchess, but were told that, unfortunately, she had a prior engagement.”
The Suits cast members gathered on stage at the Golden Globes, poking fun at the series’ new hit on Netflix.
Joking about how the show has gained recent prominence since its launch on the streaming giant, Gabriel said, “There’s nothing more dramatic or anxiety-inducing than waiting all night to hear that our category has finally arrived.”
Patrick, who left the show at the end of season seven alongside his on-screen wife Meghan following her real-life engagement to Prince Harry, joked: “It’s hard to imagine having to wait so long to see your show get that type of recognition.” .’
