“I’m thrilled that people still remember Dawson’s Creek because we really enjoyed making it”
But her first commitment is to Mchappy Day, and Mcdonald’s couldn’t be more delighted to have her as its ambassador. “Katie hasn’t been in Australia in over 10 years,” says director of marketing Jo Feeney. “We’re absolutely thrilled to have someone of her calibre who is known for supporting children’s charities.”
When it’s pointed out to Holmes she’ll doubtless have to contend with lots of blokes turning up with their kids ostensibly to donate, but also to see their Dawson’s Creek crush, she laughs. She’s still as fond of her character Joey Potter as they are. “I’m thrilled that people are fans of Dawson’s Creek,” she says, giggling. “I’m just so grateful that people still remember and that they enjoyed watching because we really enjoyed making it. I’ll be happy to see them.”
Katie Holmes will attend Mchappy Day on Saturday, November 16.
