I don’t know what Suits TV Show Creator and Writer Aaron Kush had in mind when the American legal drama series premiered on June 23 2011.
(i)That Harvey Reginald Specter (Gabriel Macht) ,a name partner at Pearson Specter Litt is actually married to Zoe Lawford (Jacinta Berrett) surprised me.
She appears first in the episode “Sucker Punch” playing pool with Harvey, whom she has had a history with. She is revealed to be a former lawyer who worked for Pearson Hardman and was not on friendly terms with Jessica Pearson. She is brought on as a jury consultant to help Harvey and the firm with battling out their lawsuit.
Later on, she appears in “Blind-Sided” where she has a date with Harvey, who wanted to celebrate his victory. Unfortunately, she had her niece Olivia over, the two spend an evening together and reconcile. They share a surprising kiss, and it is disclosed that Harvey has serious intentions towards her, unlike other women. At the end of the episode, when Harvey comes to Zoe for the second time, it is revealed that her brother has cancer, and she’s going to raise Olivia outside of New York, devastating Harvey.
Zoe is later mentioned in “Blood in the Water”, as Harvey and Donna share conversation about Zoe leaving him. He seems shattered and takes out his frustrations on Mike.
The last mention comes from “War”. Donna claims that Harvey let Zoe go and did not fight enough for her. He responded that she left him, and he did not want to replace Olivia’s dad.
Jacinda Barrett, the actress that plays Zoe, is Gabriel Macht’s real-life wife.. They have been married since 2004
(ii) That Zoe’s niece Olivia is their daughter Satine Anais Geraldine Macht surprised me too.
(iii)That Professor Henry Gerard (Stephen Robert Macht),Havard Ethics Professor is Harvey Specter’s real-life Dad shocked me.
The show hosts a real-life family reunion between Gabriel Macht and his father, Stephen Macht. The elder Macht plays a notoriously strict Harvard professor who has a key role in Louis’ investigation into Mike’s collegiate credits. Father and son have big scenes together in a few episodes, but Harvey and Professor Gerard do not get along.
“We’ve discussed casting his dad for a long time, but we just needed the right part,” Korsh says. “When I came up with this part, I thought of Gabriel’s father and told him and he said, ‘Let’s do it.’ He killed it. They wanted to do an amazing job and you could just see it, and I was so happy with the scene. There’s a definite chance he can come back in the future.”
Stephen Macht has been married to archivist/museum curator Suzanne Victoria Pulier since 1964.He has four children: Julie, Ari Serbin, actor Gabriel Macht and musician Jesse Macht. Stephen Macht is also an ordained chaplain.
(iv)That Mike Ross (Patrick Johannes Adams) started dating Troian Bellisario (Claire Bowden ) after they met in 2009 when they were cast opposite each other in the play Equivocation.
Prior to his appearance on Pretty Little Liars, Adams and Bellisario had broken up; but, after Adams’ guest appearance on Pretty Little Liars in 2010, the two have since gotten back together.
On February 24, 2014, it was confirmed that Bellisario and Adams had become engaged.
The couple have also worked together on the 2012 short film The Come Up, Suits and We Are Here.
In Suits Troain Bellisario is Claire Bowden.She is a girl who had a romantic interest in Mike Ross prior to him meeting Jenny and becoming a lawyer at Pearson Hardman.
She is first introduced in season 4’s flashback episode, “Fork in the Road”. A few years before Mike Ross became a lawyer, Mike was working as a bike messenger. During a courier trip to a Social Services legal clinic in the city, he met Claire, an intern and receptionist who was struggling to understand visa’s and immigration law. Mike offered to help her, and the pair later went out for dinner.
At dinner, she asked Mike what else he did beside bike messaging, telling him that if she were to be in a relationship with a man, he’d have to be more than just a bike messenger. Mike lies to her and tells her that he is a lawyer, and claims to study at Columbia, after she tells him she studies at New York University.
After successfully filing a legal form for Claire that would allow her client to remain in the country, his work is thrown in the trash by Claire’s boss, who was attracted to Claire and threatened by Mike’s involvement with her. He tells Mike to leave, as he did a background check on Mike; however, he also tells Claire. Although Mike tells her that he likes her and is changing his life around just for her, she shoots him down, saying she doesn’t believe him and that she never wants to see him again.
After Mike Ross is officially made Junior Partner by Jessica Pearson, she hands him his first case as partner. Mike asks Rachel Zane to be the associate on the case, but backs off when he realizes the opposing attorney is none other than Claire. He leaves the case in Rachel’s hands, but as Rachel is just a law student and a part-time associate (as she is a paralegal by profession), Rachel is unable to authorize any deals on the case. Claire, however, notices that the partner assigned to the case is a Michael Ross, and wonders if it’s the same Mike Ross she once went out with years ago.
Rachel attempts to close the deal afterwards, but blows it once Claire points out that she is a newbie, which gets under her skin. As the deal involves Google, the firm is set to lose a lot of money, which not only makes the firm look bad, but Mike, as it is his first case as partner. Not only does Rachel have to prevent anyone from figuring out Mike himself is not working on his very first case as partner, but also to prevent Claire from finding out about Mike. Rachel later finds out that one of Claire’s very own clients could benefit from the deal, and offers it as a win-win solution to Claire. However, upon returning to the office, Mike tells her that the company she made a deal with, GigaDyne, had just entered the defense contracting business the day before, and as a government supplier, will make a background check into the acquisition, as well as everyone involved.
As Mike’s name is on the case files, Mike has Rachel erase his name from all the files. Claire, however, is aware that the files have been altered and asks Rachel why Mike’s name is removed, and realizes that the name was removed due to the impeding background check. Putting two and two together, along with her initial suspicion, she realizes that the Mike Ross on the case is none other than the same Mike Ross she once knew, thereby knowing that Mike is a fraud. She plans to report him to the District Attorney, but relents after Rachel reveals to her that she and Mike are engaged and she begs Claire not to.
Mike, however, realizes that Claire knows the truth and approaches her outside her law firm. He thanks her for not blowing his secret, but she tells him she doesn’t believe that he turned his life around or that he loves Rachel. Mike begins to question how she could ever say such a thing, but Claire tells him that if he really loved her, he wouldn’t marry her, because one day his secret will come out and she would be implicated.
(v) That Donna Roberta Paulsen (Sarah Rafferty) who is Harvey Specter’s legal secretary, close friend, and confidant even in real life
In Suits,she has worked with him since his first year as an Assistant District Attorney, and she left the DA’s office with him to work with him at Pearson Hardman. She listens in on all the conversations in his office, partially because he never turns the intercom off. She knows the private details of his personal life and relationships. She is also an integral part of Harvey’s pre-trial ritual.
She and her Suits co-star Gabriel Macht have been best friends for over 20 years.They met in 1993 at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.
