Meghan Markle’s quest for superhero movie role met with derision by Joan Collins

Meghan Markle has been causing a stir with her proposed plan to land a role in a massive Hollywood movie – but Joan Collins doesn't think much of it.

The Duchess of Sussex, who alongside husband Prince Harry will be making her last public appearance as a senior member of the royal family tomorrow, is said to have instructed her agent to get her a part in a superhero film.

But when Dame Joan was asked to offer some advice to the former Suits star, it was met with derision.

"Ha! You've gotta be joking!" the Dynasty actress laughed as she was asked by paparazzi about Meghan's chance of making it big in Hollywood.

The 86-year-old actress, who first broke into the entertainment industry at the age of nine, had been leaving a restaurant in Los Angeles with husband Percy Gibson when she was asked about the Markle debacle.

It comes after Meghan reportedly asked Hollywood agent Nick Collins to find her a part in a big blockbuster to break her back into acting after she quit Suits on her engagement to Harry.

But a source close to Nick said he's warned her she "can't carry a film" .

"She knows she can't carry a film as an actress."

Meghan's already done the recording – finishing it before she, Harry and baby Archie, seven months, jetted off to Canada for the festive season.
