Katie Holmes shot to fame in 1998 playing Joey Potter in hit TV drama Dawson's Creek, and on Friday, the actress got nostalgic thinking about her time on the show. Taking a trip down memory lane, Katie took to her Instagram account to share a photograph from her days on the prgramme. The star was pictured wrapping her arms around Dawson's Creek writer Kevin Williamson in front of a Christmas tree at home. Katie can be seen wearing a bright orange top and jeans, while Kevin looked smart in a blue shirt and chinos. The 39-year-old captioned the photo: "#tbt to my friend Kevin Williamson and me during #dawsonscreek days :). So thankful for this time in my life and these beautiful friendships."

The photo went down a treat with Dawson's Creek fans, who were quick to comment on the post. One wrote: "I love Dawson's Creek it takes me back to when I was a teenager," while another asked: "Reunion please! Bring it back!" A third added: "I really liked that series." Katie played Dawson Leery's (James Van Der Beek) best friend and love interest for the full running of the show until 2003. Katie starred alongside actors including Joshua Jackson – who played Pacey Witter - and Michelle Williams, who starred as Jen Lindley. While writing the show, Kevin modelled the character of Dawson on himself, while Katie's character was based on his best friend.

Katie previously stated her doubts over a Dawson's Creek reunion while talking on radio station SiriusXM. She said: "I don't think we're going to do a reunion. We see each other every now and then." She later praised Kevin's writing for giving young people a platform to be heard. "I think that the charm of the show was Kevin Williamson's writing and it was of that time and it gave teenagers this voice. It was a very, very special time – a special show and I loved every minute of it."
