How I see it is that there's a filming period then a promotional period and then a viewing period. Many shows that "premiere" on a network were actually filmed many months before airing. When Suits starts up again with a new season, its a down time for the cast. Their work has been done and they pursue other things.

Ok I thought she had gone back to work filming the last season of suits and that's why she was back in Canada ....at least that's what I thought I read a couple weeks ago when the story was coming out about she and Harry dating etc.

For the past two seasons at least, Suits has filmed from April to November, with a break in the summer.

The season (with exception of the first season) runs from June/July to March/April with a break from September to mid-January.

They had their wrap party for Season 6 on November 20 so she's currently free. The season started with the first table read on April 2, so I'd anticipate a similar schedule. With that said, based on her instagram, she spent most of March flying around to do promotional work.

I was under the impression that they wrapped up filming Season 6 and won't start filming Season until March or early summer. So basically her time is her own. The split seasons always throw me off...most shows that start airing in Sept and end in May they usually start filming the summer and finish by early fall/winter.

Season 7 doesn't start filming until March. She lives in Toronto when not traveling.

Suits is very similar to a lot of different series I watch via satellite. One example for me is the Hallmark channel. Shows like "The Good Witch" and "When Calls the Heart" show for a time then you get months of previews and trailers for the upcoming season that may be almost a year before a new episode airs.

With being an avid sucker for the Hallmark season of continuous "feel good" holiday movies, I've also noticed that key characters that play in series I follow also seem to be on constant contract with the Hallmark channel to star in various roles for these movies over the years. Its like finding a list of characters and their actors/actresses that a producer named Norman Lear created and contracted.

We do not know what Meghan's contract involves. Part of it probably is making appearances to promote Suits and who knows what else.

Dang. And to think there was such a beast as gathering around the TV set because "Uncle Miltie" was coming on and it was a live broadcast.

And I can't wait until When Calls the Heart comes back..

I believe most contracts include promotional work for everything. Haven't you noticed that before a season/movie comes out...all of a sudden the actor is appearing on magazine covers or articles in magazines, on chat shows to talk about the season and what fans should expect. They even have premiere parties and actors tweet while the show is on...participate in podcasts, etc.

You don't just film a show and hope people watch it. You are out there promoting your show. A lot of television actors use their hiatus to either make television movies [the Hallmark Christmas movies typically film in the summer] or a studio movie.

I believe it's been reported that Suits has finished filming the remainder of Season 6, which isn't due to begin airing until the end of January.

I'm not sure when the promotional period will begin, although I doubt it'll be too much before it starts airing again. Looking at previous seasons, it seems like the back half of a season for the show tends to only be 6 episodes, so I'm inclined to believe that the shooting is completely done. Season 7 likely won't start airing until the summer (based on the precedent of previous seasons), so Meghan likely has at least a couple months before they start filming again.

To actually land a job as a repeating character in one of these kind of TV series is actually a big deal. Its not a job you go to every day with the attitude of putting yourself "into the face" of everyone else out there because of ego. Big egos actually get the reputation of being as such very quickly. William Shatner comes to mind for some reason or the other.

A lot of us recognize the type of work Meghan does and from watching and following similar shows, we see the draw these people as characters have. To make a point, I never, ever tune into daytime talk shows but I do have a hubby that is as goofy and sentimental about Hallmark shows that I am. He made a point to watch Home & Family just because Daniel Lissing who plays Jack Thornton on When Calls The Heart was on. He controls the TV remote. I control the computer. That works for us and I didn't complain at all.

Not everything Meghan does is work related. If we all adapted 100% to what our careers are and the way we make a living, we'd really not be much of a individual at all. With Meghan's career, a lot of it requires acting a part and backing the show she acts for as and most likely her paycheck depends on stipulations along those lines.

If.. and I say a really big if... she wanted to be in our face and glorify herself and advance her worth in her field and, like a lot of other people do including royal reporters, make their living off other people and "connections", we'd have had a lot more by now than spooning bananas when it comes to Harry.

Fame is a fickle mistress and most often referred to as fool's gold.

Meghan seems like a realstic person, knowing her career possibilities, limitations, and what might be on offer for her after Suits. She might not want to cntinue the grueling and tiresome auditions once Suits ends.

She's clearly passionate about food, traveling, the charities she's part of. She might have started branching outside of acting with her website, and if she gets paid by advertisers on her blog, what's wrong with that? She's working on making her own money, making a career for herself. That's a good thing.

Everything she's doing now careerwise, she had started a long time before she even met Harry. Is she supposed to stop all that just because daily fail is reporting on her blogs now, because of her relationship with Harry?

It's been reported(!), but given this couple's efforts, possibly true, that Harry will head to Canada in the day or two after Christmas to be with Meghan.

That is a horrible headline...

Meghan has "surprised" a friend's kid with a present (although as it's Christmas Eve, I suspect "surprise" is a bit of an exaggeration) and photos have "emerged" of her on Fringe... although as she was on Fringe 7 years ago it's not like the footage the DM has found is in any way new. I'd add to that as Fringe is a "what she's known for" on her Wikipedia page, I'm guessing that it's not really a secret that she was on the show.

Lets not discount the most amazing, breaking news that comes with this kind of a story!

Meghan actually has friends that have kids!

Daily Fail without fail published a picture of Meghan's mom at LAX. Like clockwork the dregs of daily fail society are a horrendous mixture of racist, classist and sexist. Awful people! I hope Meghan and her family have a fantastic Christmas and hopefully Harry will get to meet Meghan's family. Whether you like Meghan or not, you can dislike someone without being reprehensible. There is no excuse for treating people you don't know like this.

I can't see what there is to dislike about Meghan , and if she makes Harry (my favourite Royal) happy, I don't like her, I love her!

People please don't read the comment section in DM etc. these people have a social problem at best or are stark raving mad. Reading them is like hitting your head with a bat and then saying you have a headache.

Daily fail are truly grasping at straws to write articles about Meghan. That happened over a season ago.
