Meghan Markle may have shifted away from acting, but she still keeps one foot in the industry. Particularly if it comes to supporting projects by her close friends like David Oyelowo and Misan Harriman, Markle will always be at the forefront. Misan Harriman recently made his directorial debut with the Netflix short film The After, with David Oyelowo taking the lead. The film tells a gripping story of grief that revolves around a rideshare driver who encounters a passenger helping him confront his past.

In the screening of this gut-wrenching short film, Meghan Markle lent her support to her friends- David Oyelowo and Misan Harriman.

Meghan Markle attended the special screening of Netflix’s short film, The After. It took place in a private residence in Montecito, California. The Duchess of Sussex wore an elegant brown ensemble featuring a blazer layered over a darker brown high-neck top and paired it up with trousers in the same shade as the blazer. To acknowledge Markle’s support, Harriman shared a post on X, formerly Twitter, and expressed how special it was for him to have guests like Markle to witness the movie. 

Harriman thanked all the guests and the OTT giant for hosting the event. Filmmaking was not Harriman’s primary profession, as he was mostly popular as a photographer. Even Meghan Markle’s connection with Harriman also stems from his profession as a photographer. However, in an interview with Krish Majumdar, Harriman shared that cinema was always his “first love” where he found “love, safety, solace”.
