Best Known For: THE JOURNEY OF NATTY GANN, DREAM A LITTLE DREAM
Meredith was quite striking with those piercing eyes and raven colored hair even as a tiny tyke in THE JOURNEY OF NATTY GANN but my fondest memory of her as an actress was how much heavy lifting she did playing opposite Corey Feldman in DREAM A LITTLE DREAM when the guy was at the height of his Michael Jackson fanaticism. I think Meredith deserved an Oscar nom just for keeping her composure during Feldman’s hilariously bad MJ-inspired dance scene.
Meredith stopped acting at the tail end of the 80s to go to Harvard where she graduated with honors and a degree in Psychology. She then returned to acting with appearances in movies like LAKE PLACID and constant guest spots on TV shows including a memorable turn in the “I Only Have Eyes for You“ episode of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. She also has done a lot of voice work most notably in the animated STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS series. She is also really active on Twitter, tweeting out awesomely geeky pics like this one for the Star Wars/May 4th anniversary.
