Cast Of Dawson’s Creek: How Much Are They Worth Now?

Who do you think is worth more? Katie Holmes? Michelle Williams? Joshua Jackson? While these and the other stars on this list were on Dawson’s Creek, they played teenagers and young adults, but nowadays they’re each millionaires. Every single one of them. From their gigs playing alongside Dawson Leery to movie roles, television hits, and wealth altering relationships, check out what the stars of Dawson’s Creek are worth now.

8. Busy Phillips – Audrey Liddell

Estimated Net Worth: $12 million. Elizabeth Jean “Busy” Philipps joined the Dawson’s Creek crew as Audrey Liddell during seasons 5 and 6 of the wildly popular show. She was nominated for a Teen Choice Award for “TV – Choice Sidekick” and landed on Maxim’s Hot 100 Women of 2001. But beyond that, it set her on her way to making her current $12 million fortune. ‘Busy’? Try ‘Richie’!

7. Oliver Hudson – Eddie Doling

Estimated Net Worth: $10 million. Oliver Hudson played Joey Potter’s love interest Eddie Doling for 16 episodes of the popular show, but in real life he comes from a formidable Hollywood family with hefty bank accounts of their own. Super-star sister Kate Hudson, super-star mom Goldie Hawn, and super-star step-dad Kurt Russell all demand serious paychecks in the biz and Oliver is no different (if not quite at their stratospheric level) with a current fortune of $10 million.

6. Meredith Monroe – Andie McPhee

Estimated Net Worth: $3 million. Meredith Monroe faced her fair share of issues when she played Andie McPhee on Dawson’s Creek, but it certainly didn’t hurt her bank account. Through it and other roles, like her stint as FBI spouse and serial killer victim Haley Hotchner on Criminal Minds, Meredith has banked an estimated $3 million. Not bad at all.

5. Kerr Smith – Jack McPhee

Estimated Net Worth: $2 million. Kerr Smith played Meredith Monroe’s brother on Dawson’s Creek and Jack McPhee faced as many issues as his on-screen sibling. But just like Meredith, Kerr not only found himself fairly paid for the breakout role, but he also went on to earn in parts on Charmed, CSI, and even appeared in an episode of Criminal Minds, which Meredith Monroe appeared on as a recurring character. Through these and other roles he’s managed to bank an estimated $2 million.

4. Michelle Williams – a.k.a. Jen Lindley

Estimated Net Worth: $16 million. Michelle Williams may take well-deserved breaks between her current roles and no one can blame her when she gets to spend her off-time with her adorable little girl. But when she is working hard, the roles that Michelle takes on just add to her already healthy bank account, which is estimated to be at around $16 million. This definitely makes her one of the highest earners on this list. But not the highest!

3. Joshua Jackson – a.k.a. Pacey Witter

Estimated Net Worth: $8 million. Joshua Jackson immediately became a fan-favorite when he took on the role of Dawson’s Creek’s Pacey Witter. He continued his role throughout the show’s run, but television success didn’t end for him there. After taking on bit characters and movie parts, he landed one of the lead roles on the incredibly popular show, Fringe, which continued his streak of decent paychecks. He’s currently estimated to be worth around $8 million. Well done, Pacey!

2. James Van Der Beek – a.k.a. Dawson Leery

Estimated Net Worth: $5 million. James Van Der Beek may have been the namesake character of Dawson’s Creek, but in the long-run, he hasn’t been quite as successful as some of his castmates. Don’t think that means that Van Der Beek is hurting for cash, though. His bank account is currently filled with a cool $5 million.

1. Katie Holmes – a.k.a. Joey Potter

Estimated Net Worth: $25 million. Katie Holmes was the only character on Dawson’s Creek to appear in every single episode of the wildly popular teen-dream show. She also went on to star in various movie roles and is still taking parts as they come her way while raising her own little adorable daughter. Whether her wealth comes from her own acting endeavors or from her wildly public relationship with super-star Tom Cruise (or a little bit of column A, a little bit of column B), she’s currently sitting on somewhere in the range of $25 million.
