After Meghan signed with top-tier talent agency WME, whispers have emerged that she is preparing to relaunch herself as an actress!

Sources say the Duchess is trying to land a big movie role, reportedly worth $30 million, in an upcoming US production. Stoking these flames is the fact that Meghan’s lunch companion Gwyneth is married to major Hollywood producer Brad Falchuk.

“She is determined to secure a deal with Brad, given he has a wealth of connections which could help put her on the map as an A-list star,” says the source.

Meghan is said to have “always been infatuated” with Gwyn and wants to “model herself after her”.
