In some sad news, longtime television host and interviewer Larry King passed away this weekend, having being hospitalised with COVID-19 in late December.
He was 87.
As people across the globe remember him, a few of his old interviews have been doing the rounds, including one back in 2013 with Meghan Markle and her Suits costar Patrick J. Adams.
This was long before she met Harry, as I’m sure you’ve already figured out.
Per Marie Claire, in the interview, the pair discussed the show, where they thought the plot was going, their first sex scene together, and their characters.
During the interview, when Meghan was asked to describe her character in Suits, King jumped in with one word that threw her off her game – “seductive”.
Here’s the full interview, with that awkward moment at the 1:54 mark:
King had a number of really funny moments during his career.
Two that are worth mentioning right off the bat include the time he tried to get Danny Pudi to think bigger about what he considers a luxury item:

And the time he “hurt” Jerry Seinfeld:

Vanity Fair also rounded up 10 of his most memorable interviews.
These three really stand out.
Frank Sinatra’s last major interview before his death 10 years later:
Lady Gaga, who came dressed pretty much the same as Larry King:
Marlon Brando chose Larry King Live as the sole interview to hype his memoir, Songs My Mother Taught Me:
It’s worth noting a few of the weirder bits in the above interview:
When asked if he would rather have been a musician, Brando replies, “If the dog hadn’t stopped to pee, he might have caught the rabbit.”
Before Brando bids, “Goodbye,” he engages Larry in an off-key duet on “Got a Date with an Angel” and plants a kiss on King’s mouth.

Rest in peace, Larry.
