Fate intervened when she was attending a national modeling and talent convention in New York and she met a talent manager who encouraged her to come to Los Angeles for television's pilot season.

For the ''Dawson's Creek''audition,she sent in a videotape from Toledo and when the call came back conflicted with her play's opening night she declined rather than let down her classmates.

Fortunately,the producers were able to reschedule her audition and she landed the series regular role of Joey Potter. The youngest of five,Holmes got into acting only two years ago.

While a junior,she landed a role in Ang Lee's ''The Ice Storm.''For now,she has put off admission to Columbia University.While on hiatus from the show she is filming a thriller ''disturbing Behavior''.
