Meredith Monroe was born in Houston, Texas, on December 30th, 1969. She is a 5’ 6” (1.68 m) actress who has worked since 1997 and is best known for her role as Andie McPhee in Dawson’s Creek.
Meredith Monroe’s parents divorced when she was two, and she went with her mother to be raised in Hinsdale, Illinois. Her mother worked for Lucent Technologies, and Monroe would also spend summers with her father in Florida and Texas, where his computer work took him.
After graduating high school, she entered the modeling world. In 1995 she appeared in numerous television commercials and magazine ads.
In 1996 she would transition to a career in acting for television and, eventually, film.
Meredith Monroe’s acting debut was in 1996 when she was cast as Tracy Dalken in the ABC series Dangerous Minds in the episode “Everybody Wants It.” From there, she would appear in multiple television shows for a one-episode appearance, such as Jenny, Hang Time, and Promised Land, all of which were filmed in 1996.
However, shortly after, she would debut as a series regular in the teen drama Dawson’s Creek as Andie McFee.
Dawson’s Creek was a drama series set in Massachusetts that ran on The WB. The show ran for 128 episodes from 1998 to 2003, and Meredith Monroe appeared in 69 of them from 1998 to 2001.
The show was a big hit as it aired and launched the careers of actors such as James Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes, and Michelle Williams.
Meredith Monroe’s character, Andie McFee, was not considered part of the “core four” but a hugely important character in the show’s early run. She would be introduced in season 2 but exit by season 4.
At first, Andie was a well-regarded character, but fans grew to dislike her for some of her actions on the show.
By the time the fourth season was being written, the writers were unsure of where to take the character and wrote her off the show. She got a chance to reprise the character for the series finale, but those scenes were ultimately cut, but can be seen as DVD extras.
Beyond Dawson’s Creek, she is well-known for her role in the crime procedural Criminal Minds. The show would run on CBS from 2005 to 2020 for over 320 episodes.
Meredith Monroe would appear in 16 of them over a few years, playing Haley Hotchner, the wife of lead character Aaron Hotchner, played by Thomas Gibson. Her character would eventually end up murdered by a recurring serial killer.
Regarding her film career, she would be best remembered as a public service announcer in 2002’s Minority Report. She also appeared in the films Wake (2009), Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011), and The Edge of Seventeen (2016).
