“I filmed a movie with Meghan about three years ago,” he told the Langley Advance.

He recalled how a spot downtown was, through movie magic, turned into small town USA.

“We dressed it up as a small town, a Martha’s Vineyard sort of feel,” Munro said.

The 2014 Hallmark Channel movie had Munro playing her boyfriend, a businessman. Markle’s character returned to her hometown where her first love lived and they fell in love.

Markle’s currently in the cast of Suits but has also been in TV and movies, including Fringe, Without a Trace, CSI: NY, CSI: Miami, The League, Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me, A Lot Like Love, and Horrible Bosses.
