Wendell Pierce, 55, originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, and Robert Zane played in the long-running series of lawyers, said Markle's mother would have prepared her for & # 39; the ugly side of human nature like any woman in color child would teach & # 39;
The actor added: & # 39; But remember that in those difficult times you have many people who care about you.
& # 39; And that you know, protocol, we probably won't have as much contact with each other as you think, but just know that you have a friend in me and that there are many people who care about you. & # 39;
His words came from the remarks of the Duchess of Sussex during the documentary after the royal couple's first official engagement in Africa this year.
Their interviews, which have since been viewed only tens of millions of times on Twitter, have triggered a huge public debate about their role in the royal family.

The couple talked about the struggle to cope with intensive control and Harry admitted that he and his brother, who were once inseparable, now have their & # 39; good days & # 39; and & # 39; bad days & # 39; to have.
In response to Mrs. Markle's comments in which she said she was surprised by the amount of press attention, Pierce said: In those darkest hours, I hope she knows how much she is loved. I hope she knows how many people, millions of people take care of her.
& # 39; I'm sure her mother raised her well, so she prepared her for the ugly side of human nature, as women in color would teach their child, just as my parents taught me.

& # 39; There will be people who are not in your best interest, but they are not the people you are targeting, you are concentrating away from them. & # 39;
He then said he was happy to offer his support and added: & # 39; I am her TV dad! & # 39;
The actor also talked about traveling around the world for his espionage drama Jack Ryan and in the lead role in the West End run of Death of a Salesman.
