Katherine Heigl shares her first look from Suits
Actor Katherine Heigl has shared her first look from Suits as she joins the legal drama as a series regular in season eight.
The 39-year-old will play Samantha Wheeler, and her character will make its debut by the end of the season.
“Day 2 on the set of Suits getting my hands wrapped for a kickboxing scene. My character is no shrinking violet! She’ll kick your a** in the ring and in the courtroom! Love playing a girl with gumption!” Heigl wrote on Instagram alongside a photo from the sets. The Grey’s Anatomy veteran is one of three new series regulars for the eighth season and will work alongside Dule Hill (Alex Williams) and Amanda Schull (Katrina Bennett) later.
The character is tipped to be an important addition to Pearson Specter Litt in season eight. Heigl is also expected to provide necessary star power after the exit of Meghan Markle and Patrick J Adams from the show.
