“Suits” Actor Gabriel Macht On Harvey Specter And The “Silent Suspender”

Change is inevitable, and the fourth season of Suits has the seemingly indestructible duo of Mike (Patrick J. Adams) and Harvey (Gabriel) on different sides of the proverbial coin. While Harvey’s still the same high powered lawyer we’ve come to know and love, it’s Rachel (Meghan Markle) who serves as his associate. As for Mike, he’s using his photographic memory these days as an investment banker, and on the season premiere of Suits (June 11, 9/8c), he and Harvey try their best to adjust to their new relationship.

Harvey Specter is one of television’s most memorable characters, and although his motivations aren’t always clear, his razor sharp thinking and charm usually leads to a Specter victory.

During our interview with Macht earlier this year, he talked about playing the subtle facets of Harvey Specter’s persona. Check out the video below, as Macht explains how a director’s “silent suspender” helps reign in his performance as Mr. Specter:

So who’s your favorite character on Suits? Are you team Mike or team Harvey? Personally, I’m kinda pulling for whatever scheme Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) is cooking up. But maybe that’s why my friends are few and far between! Comment below and share your thoughts about Suits – would love to check out a few opinions about the show!
