'Dawson's Creek' Co-Stars Michelle Williams and James Van Der Beek Reunite for First Time Since Series Ended
By Jackie Willis
This reunion has been a long time coming!
Over the weekend, Michelle Williams reunited with her Dawson's Creek co-star, James Van Der Beek, at Jeff Bezos and Matt Damon's Manchester By The Sea holiday party in Los Angeles, California. The two played friends and on-screen love interests, Dawson Leery and Jen Lindley, on the wildly popular series, and were all smiles as they posed together for a rare photo op on Saturday night.
"People always forget that Michelle Williams' Jen character was killed off, so they really need to figure out a way around that," Jackson, 38, explained. "I guess she could come back as a ghost, or they could do it like Dallas did and have someone wake up and find her alive in the shower 20 years later. That could work!"
Katie Holmes -- who played Joey Potter on Dawson's Creek -- also wasn't too keen on reviving the series. "I don't want them to grow up," the 37-year-old actress told Yahoo! Style. "You know, it's kind of like your parents -- they never get out of their 50s, that's where they are."
