The entire premise of the show operates around whether or not both of them will get caught. In the most recent seasons, the show has gotten pretty dark with a lot of cliff hangers featuring new twists and turns. It just keeps getting better and better! Gabriel Macht is a big part of why the show is so popular, which is why we have dug up these 10 things that most fans don’t know about him:

9. Good Friends with Sarah Rafferty

It’s undeniable that Gabriel Macht and Sarah Rafferty, who plays the beloved character of Donna, have on-screen chemistry. The reason these two work so well together is because they’ve been close friends for many years! They met in 1993 at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. In an interview with Blast magazine back in 2012, Macht said, “We go back 20 years and our daughters are best friends, so we lived in the same house [while shooting ‘Suits’ in Toronto]. We are really, really, really close friends. We’ve been to each other’s weddings.” Working with a best friend would be awesome! But Macht has confessed that it makes things a little difficult when it comes to being serious on set. “It is very hard to act with one of your best pals. But with that said, it’s a lot of fun. We constantly say to each other, ‘don’t make me laugh, don’t make me laugh, stop, stop, don’t, stop.’ It’s very hard.”
