Katie Holmes spoke with Elle Canada recently, and shared how she never moved past playing Joey Potter on the hit show Dawson's Creek.

"I don't know if I have moved past it, but I don't really care," she says candidly. "I had a ball doing it, and it's really nice to be a part of something that did affect people."

In addition to launching Katie Holmes' career, Dawson's Creek launched the careers of some of her co-stars as well. James Van Der Beek, Michelle Williams, and Joshua Jackson all got their big breaks on the WB show.

"It created a lot of opportunities for all of us," Holmes said.

These days Katie Holmes is enjoying a new opportunity--one of directing a film. Her directorial debut, All We Had, is based on a novel by Annie Weatherwax. She will also star in the film, which is said to be a mother-daughter drama.

"There aren't as many movies being made, period, so the challenge is to create projects for yourself," she said during her Elle interview. "Sometimes offers are flying in, and sometimes they're not."

Would Katie Holmes consider a Dawson's Creek reunion show if the rest of the cast members were game? Michelle Williams would love it--even though her character died.

"I would very happily do a reunion show, I don't know what it would be," Williams said at a Comic-Con press conference for Oz: The Great and Powerful a couple of years back. "My character died in the end, so there are certain limitations for me. It's either I come back as a ghost or I'm shot through a lot of gauzy, hazy light as my 19-year-old self."

CBS News reports that Katie Holmes did in fact express interest in doing a Dawson's Creek special. How would she ever fit it in between working on All We Had and being a mom to daughter Suri Cruise?

Do you think fans would be excited if the former Mrs. Tom Cruise were to return to the small screen in a reunion episode of Dawson's Creek? How would a grown up Joey Potter go over these days?
