Now, we can't say too much about this Tess person, as we're duty bound – on pain of actual death – to divulge no spoilers. But what we can say is that she's a woman from Mike's past, who seems to know him rather well, and a rather unfortunate plot development reunites them. But if you want to know the exact nature of her relationship with Mike, or what she might be after… well, you'll just have to watch the show, we're afraid.
Played by: Elisabeth Hower
Think of funny women and the likes of Tina Fey, Sarah Silverman and our own Catherine Tate may come to mind. But are any of them ACTUAL CLOWNS? No, no they are not. But Elisabeth Hower is. Despite having movie star looks, she's a proper, trained clown – indeed, she studied clowning with French "master clown" Philippe Gaulier – a scenario which could be the basis of a slightly frightening sitcom in its own right. Despite all this funny business, we can expect her to be on sombre form in Suits.
