A Little Bit About The Actors, and Actresses ThemSelves
Dawson Leery on DAWSON'S CREEK

Much like the character he portrays, James Van Der Beek's dedication and talent surfaced at an early age. A mild concussion sidelined his school football career, and instead Van Der Beek found himself playing the lead role in a local children's theater production of "Grease." He fell in love with the theater and continued to perform locally.
Jennifer Lindley on DAWSON'S CREEK

Michelle Williams, like her character Jennifer Lindley on DAWSON'S CREEK, is making the transition from big city to small town life. The 18-year-old actress moved from Los Angeles to Wilmington, North Carolina, the production location for the series. As Williams recounts, "It's quite a change from Los Angeles. It's beautiful and a nice pace for awhile, but at first it was a strange switch from the city and traffic. Having the experience of moving from a big city to a small town does make it easier to relate to Jen, however."
Pacey Witter on DAWSON'S CREEK

Born in Vancouver, 20-year-old Joshua Jackson spent his formative years in California, moving with his family back to Vancouver at the age of eight. It was there that he launched his professional career, appearing in a series of television commercials promoting tourism in British Columbia. While his family shuttled between Vancouver and California, Jackson also sang with the San Francisco Boy's Chorus.

Joey Potter on DAWSON'S CREEK

Nineteen-year-old Katie Holmes possesses an exceptional maturity much like Joey Potter, the character she portrays on DAWSON'S CREEK.

Born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, Holmes began acting in high school theater productions in spite of a personal belief that acting careers couldn't be sustained living in the Midwest. "Toledo is a bit bigger than Capeside [the fictional location of DAWSON'S CREEK], but there are similarities," she says. "I'm a small town girl just like Joey. I wasn't the one that had the boys in high school. I was a little bit of a tomboy and also the youngest in my family, so I thought I knew everything. Like Joey, I made a lot of mistakes, but fortunately, I haven't had the tragedy that she's experienced in her life."
Andie McPhee on DAWSON'S CREEK

Meredith Monroe joins the cast of last year's rookie hit as Andie McPhee, the newest resident on DAWSON'S CREEK. This fall, Andie and her brother Jack move to Capeside and struggle to adapt to their new surroundings. A child of privilege with a quick wit and a cockeyed optimism about her life, Andie will find romance with one of Capeside's eligible young bachelors.
