'I had no idea': Suits star asks Coast woman for photo

WHEN a celebrity approaches you and asks for a photo together, it's a pretty big deal.

Unless you don't realise the person with their arm on your shoulder is a famous actor from the popular Netflix series, Suits.

Last week, Donna Egan was at her usual spot at the Eumundi markets making balloon animals when she was approached by Gabriel Macht, who plays lead character Harvey Specter alongside soon to be princess of Britain, Meghan Markle (Rachel Zane) in Suits.

He asked Ms Egan, who wears a shirt with 'Miss Donna' on it to represent her business, for a quick photo.

At the time, Ms Egan had no idea who he was.

"I get asked for photos a lot because of how I dress, and there was a crazy big line of children at my stall so I didn't think much of it," she said.

 

"But then he posted the photo to his own Instagram and people were sending it to me.

"His co-star in Suits is named Donna also (played by actress Sarah Rafferty), so I'm guessing this is why he wanted the picture."

She said it was definitely the first time a celebrity had asked her for a photo.

"All of my friends keep saying they can't believe I met him, I don't usually watch television so that's why I didn't recognise him."

And the excitement hasn't ended for the Tewantin resident who jet-setted to Las Vegas this week to compete in the international balloon twisting competition Twist and Shout.

"It's on every year and I usually compete but there are heaps of classes too," she said.

"I didn't place this year but it is always so much fun to meet new people and see the creations some people come up with .

One of Miss Egan's creations was a dress made entirely from balloons.

"It is definitely an experience," she said.
