Katie’s first love came when she met Joshua Jackson on the set of “Dawson’s Creek” in 1998. The love was incredible and indescribable, but sadly burned too quickly.
The pair called it quits in 1999, soon after the premiere of the first season. The two still remain close friends to this day, and she even considers him one of her best friends.
She Is Committed and Loyal
“Dawson’s Creek” almost didn’t happen for Katie because she refused to audition in person. The audition overlapped with her opening night for “Damn, Yankees,” and she didn’t want to miss that opportunity.
Lucky for her, the producers allowed her to audition via videotape, and the rest is history. Apparently, the executive producer took one view of the tape and knew he had found his Joey Potter.
Babe of the Year in Sweden
If anyone wants to vote for us as the babe of the year, we will take it, no matter the country. We hope Katie feels the same way because she was voted “Babe of the Year” in 1998 by the Swedish newspaper Expressen Fredag.
It’s kinda cool knowing that you have a reach all across the world. So if any country or person, for that matter, wants to name us that, we will gladly take the honor.
While “The Ice Storm” was her first performance, she was awarded a breakthrough performance award by MTV for her role as Rachel Wagner in “Disturbing Behavior.”
She did star alongside James Marsden in this film, but we don’t know why MTV thought so highly of this teen-horror movie. Not even two amazing actors in Katie and James could have saved this movie from itself.
Stop and “Go”
Katie did redeem herself after “Disturbing Behavior” flopped when she excelled in “Go.” This movie was met with a much better reception from audiences and movie critics alike.
It grossed over 28.5 million at the box office and has a 91% on Rotten Tomatoes. If you haven’t seen this movie yet, you should. It’s well worth the time spent watching and will keep you entertained the whole way through.
