Zoe Lawford

A lot of people get sucked in by Harvey's schemes like clumps of hair in a vacuum nozzle. But not Zoe Lawford, his one-time colleague at Pearson Hardman. Savvy, nobody's fool and darn clever at lawyerin', she was an ally of Harvey's who turned against him when she realised just how ruthless he could be. Having presumably exhausted her forehead muscles from constantly raising an eyebrow at Harvey's shenanigans, she now works elsewhere – but is destined to become a key player in the frosty battle of wills between Hardman, Harvey and Jessica.

Played by: Jacinda Barrett

It's kind of ironic that Jacinda Barrett is one of the few people (apart from Louis Litt) to turn completely against Harvey, as she's married to the man in real life. Yes, Jacinda is Gabriel Macht's actual spouse, so it'll be fun to see the sparks fly between them when she turns up on screen. It's all a far cry from her breakthrough appearance as a contestant on The Real World: London, a reality show from the mid-90s – when reality shows were kind of strange, exotic social experiments, rather than crashingly predictable moron-a-thons. Suits is still quite a step up, though.
