She played the role of Joey Potter from 1998 until the show ended in 2003.

After Dawson’s Creek, Holmes played Samantha Mackenzie in the 2004 film First Daughter. In 2011, she landed a recurring television role in the TV mini-series The Kennedys, in which she played the character Jackie Kennedy. This wouldn’t be the only time Holmes played Jackie Kennedy. The actress played the former first lady once again in the 2017 TV mini-series The Kennedys After Camelot.

Katie Holmes said she passed over Dawson’s Creek so she could star in a high school musical

Holmes is so dedicated to her craft that she initially passed up the opportunity to audition for Dawson’s Creek. She told Jimmy Fallon she felt obligated to honor the commitment she made to her school and her friends. Surprisingly, the show’s producer decided to giver Holmes a chance, and waited until she was done with the school play.

Another thing that could have hurt Holmes’ chances of moving forward with the audition process was the fact that half of her audition tape was gone. Someone had taped her sister’s volleyball game over her audition. We guess it was just meant for Holmes to play Joey Potter.
