7 Actresses who should play Meghan Markle instead of Selena Gomez

It looks like the white-washing of Meghan Markle has already begun, and we’re not having any of it.

While the world waits for Meg to marry Prince Harry, plenty of people are already speculating about who should portray her on screen.

The cast of Netflix’s hit show The Crown is already thinking about who could play Markle on the show, and their suggestions were laughable at best.

One of the show’s stars, Matt Smith, served up a big bag of “hell to the naw” when he suggested Selena Gomez would be the best choice for the gig during a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

Since it’s so hard for folks to recognize the endless amount of talented actresses better-suited for this particular part, we’re offering some ideas of our own.

Here’s a list of 7 stars we think would make Meghan Markle sparkle on-screen.

Zoe Kravitz

Our No. 1 pick has the look and the talent to take on this role, and there’s no doubt she would deliver, given her strong performances this year in projects like ‘Big Little Lies’.

Tessa Thompson

We can’t get enough of Tessa ever since she stole Thor’s thunder in ‘Ragnarok’. It would be great to see her carry a role like this, and she would certainly add her own flavor to the mix.

Paula Patton

Another possible doppledanger for the future Duchess of Sussex, Paula could be perfect. Her natural poise and grace would certainly come in handy and we can’t help but imagine how gorgeous she would be in a ball gown.

Nathalie Emmanuel

This biracial beauty is already famous for her role in ‘Game of Thrones’, but it would be pretty awesome to see her pull off some princess swag.

Alexandra Shipp

I think we’re all ready to put the whole Aaliyah debacle behind us, and a turn as Meghan Markle might be just the thing to help us forget it. Alexandra’s pretty face and reserved approach to her roles could work well for a future portrayal of the princess-to-be.

Bianca Lawson

The ‘Queen Sugar’ star could be a great choice for the role, and her beauty is only rivaled by her acting chops. She also knows a thing or two about living like royalty, considering her real-life stepsister is Beyonce.

Alicia Keys

The Grammy-winning singer has tried her hand at the big screen a few times, and we think she could be a cool contender. Like Meghan, she’s a brainy beauty with something to say about the world.
