Katie Holmes has one of the most recognized faces on television, but her career could have stalled before it began when she turned down the offer of the title role in Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Instead, a second chance vaulted her to stardom as a cast member on TV’s wildly popular Dawson’s Creek.

Holmes, 17 an unknown in 1996, got her show business start when she traveled from her Toledo, Ohio, home to New York for a modeling convention. There she was approached by a Los Angeles talent scout and was soon on her way to California for six weeks of auditions. She was hired on her first try for a role in The Ice Storm (1997). After that it was back to school (a Catholic all-girls’ academy in Toledo) and into a local production of Damn Yankees. She successfully auditioned for Buffy The Vampire Slayer (TV - 1998) but turned it down to finish high school. Her interest in television roles, though, continued. Holmes’ mailed-in home-video-taped audition for Dawson’s Creek (TV - 1998) was accepted -- so fully accepted, in fact, that she received permission to postpone her in-person audition until the Damn Yankees run was over.

Her big break came when she had a role in the movie The Ice Storm (1997) she starred in a part opposite Tobey Maguire. Her first leading role came in Disturbing Behavior (1998), a Stepford Wives-goes-to-high school thriller where she was a loner from the wrong side of the tracks. Holmes won a MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance for the role, though Holmes said the film was "just horrible". Next she was a disaffected supermarket clerk in Doug Liman's stylish ensemble piece Go (1999). She had an uncredited cameo with Dawson's Creek co-star Joshua Jackson in Muppets From Space (1999), which was also filmed in Wilmington. Kevin Williamson's disaffection for his own high school days spawned Teaching Mrs. Tingle (1999), which he wrote and directed. Holmes played a straight-A student whose vindictive teacher (Helen Mirren) threatens to keep her from a desperately needed scholarship.

In The Gift (2000), a Southern Gothic story directed by Sam Raimi and starring Cate Blanchett, she played the antithesis of Joey Potter: a slutty rich girl carrying on with everyone in town, from a white trash wife-beater (Keanu Reeves) to the district attorney (Gary Cole), and who winds up dead for her trouble. Holmes did her first nude scene for the film, baring her breasts in a scene where her character was about to be murdered. Of the scene, she said, "I just hope there aren't a lot of pauses on DVD players."

In Abandon (2002), written by Oscar winner Stephen Gaghan, Holmes was a delusional and homicidal college student named "Katie." Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times commended Holmes' performance and the film's intelligence, but other critics and audiences savaged it[1]. Holmes was the mistress of the public relations flack played by Colin Farrell in Phone Booth (2002) and Robert Downey, Jr.'s nurse in The Singing Detective (2003). Her next starring role was in Pieces of April (2003), a gritty comedy about a dysfunctional family on Thanksgiving. Variety said it was "one of her best film performances."

In 2005, Holmes played Rachel Dawes, the love interest of the title character in Batman Begins.

In April 2005, about two months after her relationship with Klein ended, Holmes began dating actor Tom Cruise. On October 5, 2005, People magazine broke the news Holmes is pregnant with Tom Cruise's baby.
