Rachel Zane

Every good lawyer needs a paralegal – even if we non-lawyers aren't exactly sure what one is. Rachel Zane is a paralegal par excellence, and has been an invaluable guide for the horribly naive and inexperienced Mike Ross. She's part mentor, part researcher, part person who rolls her eyes a lot. Of course, the fact she's ravishingly beautiful put an added slant on their dynamic, and there's a tantalising romantic vibe flowing between them. Will they finally get things together in season two, or pull a Mulder and Scully and keep a lid on all those simmering emotions?

Played by: Meghan Markle

It won't surprise you to learn that Meghan Markle used to be a model. In fact, she used to be a model on Deal Or No Deal. (In case you don't know, over in the States, what Deal Or No Deal lacks in Noel Edmonds, it makes up for with lots of leggy girls holding the boxes. They do know how to glam things up, round those parts.) Meghan also starred in the uber-cool, mind-muddling sci-fi series Fringe, playing the sort of unfeasibly good-looking FBI agent you only see on the telly. Oh, and if you're clicking your fingers and wondering where else you've seen her, she was also in Horrible Bosses.
