Born and raised in Queens, N.Y., Meyer studied dance throughout her childhood and loved performing on the stage in dance recitals. Her first experience in the entertainment industry came when she did some modeling from ages nine to 16. She knew she wanted to act from an early age and was even accepted into New York’s High School of Performing Arts, but her parents convinced her to follow a more traditional academic path. She majored in Business Administration and minored in French at Long Island University, and attended the Sorbonne in Paris. After graduation, however, she decided to pursue her acting again and studied under Ron Stetson.

Meyer made her film debut opposite Keanu Reeves in the action-thriller Johnny Mnemonic (1995), in which she did almost all of her own stunts, establishing herself as an athletic actress. She went on to star with Dennis Quaid in the feature film Dragonheart (1996), a very physical role but also required her to deal with CGI special effects. In her very next movie, Starship Troopers (1997), she was able to utilize all those skills. Additional film credits inclde a starring role Bats, and a recurring role in the Saw franchise.

Television fans will recognize Meyer from her role on Beverly Hills, 90210, where she played the adulteous professor Lucinda Nicholson, who had a torrid affair with Jason Priestley’s character. She also had a three-episode arc on Friends as Joey’s love interest. Already a favorite among science fiction fans, she starred as Barbara Gordon and her alter-ego, Oracle, in the short-lived series Birds of Prey, which sparked an impressive campaign from its loyal fans to keep the show on the air. She also had a leading role on the late night drama Point Pleasant. Other television credits include Ally McBeal, Six Feet Under, and appearances on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, and most recently Charlie’s Angels.

Meyer currently resides in Los Angeles and enjoys snowboarding, rollerblading, and other outdoor activities.
