First, a little throwback to start this off:
Dawson and Grams are back together again!
James Van Der Beek and Mary Beth Peil, who both starred on the WB’s hit teen drama Dawson’s Creek, had themselves a little mini-reunion this past week in New York City. Van Der Beek went to support his previous co-star at her Broadway show Anastasia for which she was nominated for a Tony Award for her portrayal of Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna.
He, of course, took this reunion with Grams to the ‘gram.
Van Der Beek shared an adorable photo of the two with the caption: “The family you make along the way ❤️(btw – the amazing #MaryBethPeil is not on the gram, but you can see her on Bway in her Tony-nominated performance in @anastasiabway ).”
Dawson’s Creek ran from 1998-2003 on The WB and starred a lot of today’s big-name Hollywood celebs such as Joshua Jackson, Katie Holmes and Michelle Williams. Van Der Beek played the titular role of Dawson Leery and Peil played Jen Lindley’s (Michelle Williams) grandmother – Grams.
It is also nearly impossible to write an article about James Van Der Beek or Dawson’s Creek without including this iconic gif, so here you go:
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
