Patrick J. Adams, actor of Suits, has apologised after posting a series of flashback images of his former co-star Meghan Markle on social media.
Earlier this week, the 42-year-old actor shared some behind-the-scenes photos from his stint on the courtroom drama, which aired from 2011 to 2019.
The Canadian actor portrayed ambitious lawyer Mike Ross, who later began a romance with Meghan’s character, Rachel Zane.
This week, he uploaded photos of Markle on set with co-stars Sarah Rafferty, Gabriel Macht, Rick Hoffman, Max Topplin, and Gina Torres.
‘I miss my friends. Each and every one of them,’ he captioned the post.
However, he’s now deleted them and issued an apology.
Posting a short statement on Instagram, he wrote: ‘The last couple of days I foolishly and thoughtlessly let a trip down Suits memory lane distract me from the very real and ongoing fight everyone in @sagaftra continues to wage in our membership realistic 21st century compensation and protections,’ he wrote.
‘It was an embarrassing oversight for which I’m incredibly sorry.
‘So grateful to those who gently and swiftly course corrected me here and I look forward to continuing the fight in the days and weeks ahead #sagaftrastrong.’
The Writers Guild of America announced earlier this week that it had struck a deal with major studios and streaming services following a 146-day strike that stopped Hollywood activities.
On Sunday, industry players were believed to have struck a tentative agreement on a new three-year contract, but members were informed that the strike was still underway.
‘To be clear, no one is to return to work until specifically authorised to by the Guild. We are still on strike until then,’ Variety reported the guild told its members.
SAG-AFTRA, which has been on strike since July 14, welcomed their efforts in a statement.
They wrote: ‘SAG-AFTRA congratulates the WGA on reaching a tentative agreement with the AMPTP after 146 days of incredible strength, resiliency, and solidarity on the picket lines.
‘While we look forward to reviewing the WGA and AMPTP’s tentative agreement, we remain committed to achieving the necessary terms for our members.’
Suits is streaming on Netflix.
