Once the star of the 90s series “Daswon’s Creek,” Katie Holmes is now luggage-free and ready to take over the acting world. Her last film prior to marrying Tom Cruise was “Pieces of April,” in which she played a struggling New Yorker trying to impress her visiting suburban family.
She later returned to the big screen when she starred in “Batman Begins” in 2005. Holmes then backed out of “Dark Knight,” which became one of the biggest movies of the decade. Katie took on some smaller roles while dating Tom in “Mad Money,” “Jack and Jill,” and “The Romantics.”
There is hope for Holmes’ future, as she just completed shooting a modern adaption of Chekhov’s “The Segull,” and will begin shooting a film she co-wrote and produces called “Molly.”
It is evident that her marriage to Tom Cruise put Katie’s acting career on the back burner. Her now six-year-old daughter, Suri, is ready for school, allowing Holmes more time to focus on her roles. Hollywood is confident that Holme’s career will take off again, as she was always a true natural in front of the camera.
