Katie Holmes comes from an old-fashioned midwestern family. So, when she was asked to fly to Los Angeles to audition for a role in Dawson's Creek, one can understand why she had to say no. She was opening that day as the star in her high school play, Damn Yankees. Katie went ahead and made an audition tape with her mother and sent it to the producers of the new show. She never really thought she'd hear from them again. But then, life really is like the movies sometimes.
Katie now plays the part of Joey on Dawson's Creek. Although she is well-known for this role, she hasn't let her sudden fame change her. She has tried to keep her popularity and success in perspective. Young person's biography
