When Beverly Hills 90210 was running, it was one of the most-watched and most followed shows on television. This fact made it a great platform for any actor or actress to appear on it. A few actors and actresses did, including Dina Meyer, who made her acting debut on the show. Although she did not spend very long on it, Dina was able to gain plaudits as she went on to move to bigger things like starring alongside Keanu Reeves in Johnny Mnemonic.
Since that glorious transition, Dina Meyer has gone on to appear in numerous other notable films and television shows like Starship Troopers and Star Trek: Nemesis.
Dina Meyer was Born and Raised in New York
Dina Meyer was born just before Christmas, on the 22nd of December, 1968 in Queens, New York. Although her name does not suggest it, she was born into a Jewish family with grandparents who were from Austria and Germany. She grew up in Queens and attended Long Island University after graduating from high school. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration in 1990 from the university.
Dina’s switch to acting despite studying Business Administration must have been a residue of the passion and love she developed for the entertainment industry while she did some modeling during her childhood days. She subsequently enrolled at The Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theatre in New York where she trained to become an actor for three years.
She Has Over 90 Acting Credits To Her Name
With the acting industry becoming increasingly competitive with each passing decade, Dina Meyer remains one of the actresses with the longest filmography that cuts across film and television. Since her debut in 1993, she has become a notable name in the industry across several genres, from Sci-Fi to Drama and Comedy.
Following her training at The Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre, Dina made her debut in Beverly Hills, 90210, playing the character Lucina Nicholson. Also in her debut year, she appeared in her first feature-length movie, a television movie titled Strapped where she played an unnamed character. After she left Beverly Hills, 90210, Dina was cast in Johnny Mnemonic in 1995, appearing alongside Keanu Reeves as a cybernetically enhanced bodyguard named Jane. It was the first of several sci-fi projects Dina Meyer would later be a part of in her career.
Back in television, Dina appeared in the classic sitcom Friends where she played the recurring character of Kate Miller. She starred in the show in 1997 as one of three appearances she made in that year. She then appeared in Michael Hayes as Rebecca Klein before starring in her second sci-fi film, Starship Troopers. Between 1998 and 2001, she appeared in projects like Bats, Stranger Than Fiction, Poodle Springs, Ally McBeal, Secret Agent Man, and Time Elapse.
In 2002, the actress was cast in two of her most notable roles to date; Romulan Commander Donatra in Star Trek: Nemesis and Barabara Gordon/Oracle/Batgirl in Birds of Prey. After portraying Elizabeth Orlando/The Love Interest in The Movie Hero in 2003, Dina Meyer gained more plaudits for playing the role of Detective Allison Kerry in Saw the next year. She has gone on to reprise that role in Saw II (2005), Saw III (2006), and Saw IV (2007). Another notable appearance of hers in the 2000s was in Fox Network’s Point Pleasant from 2005 to 2006.
In recent years, Dina Meyer has still managed to maintain relevance as she continues to land various roles. In 2016, she featured in four movies; Fortune Cookie, AmeriGeddon, The Unwilling, and Flight 192. She also appeared in two TV series titled Fishes ‘n Loaves: Heaven Sent and Turbulence. Later in 2018, the Starship Troopers star had multiple TV roles in shows like Code Black, The Magicians, The Affair, American Horror Story Apocalypse, and NCIS: Los Angeles; a role she still has to date. Additionally, she currently plays the recurring role of Gwen Adams in the sports drama TV series, All American.
How Much is She Worth?
You don’t work for over 25 years in Hollywood, appearing in over 90 films and television series and lending your voice to a video game without earning some serious bucks. Dina Meyer has so far in her career been able to accrue a total net worth of $5 million. While it may not appear to be quite a lot, the actress has been able to afford herself a lavish life thanks to it. With her not slowing down anytime soon, her financial value may as well soon be experiencing exponential growth as she continues to leave a mark in the industry.
Dina Meyer is Possibly Married
Dina Meyer is among those celebrities who prefer to keep their personal life private. Even though she is very active on social media, she has successfully kept the name of her partner a secret. As a result, no tangible information can be found about him in the media. In 2019, Meyer uploaded a loved up picture of themselves on her Instagram and said that they have been together for ten years. She often floods her account with cute pictures of herself and her man and they look so much in love.
Prior to establishing her recent long term relationship, the versatile actress had her fair share of failed love affairs. She reportedly hooked up with actor Shane West in 2001. The duo were sighted together at the premiere of A Walk To Remember at the Chinese Theatre, Hollywood in January 2002, before they called it quits a year later. Dina Meyer has also been linked with musician Billy Joel after she was spotted having lunch with him in 2003. The movie star has, however, refuted the rumor and has stated that she never dated Billy.
Meet The Siblings of The Hollywood Star
Dina Meyer grew up together with her two brothers; Gregory and Evan Meyer. Interestingly, she still shares a strong bond with her siblings to date. While details of her elder brother Gregory are unknown to the public, her younger brother Evans is a famed personality in his own right. He is a public speaker who organizes seminars on building corporate cultures, as well as the importance of community and civic engagement.
Evans serves as the chief executive officer of Beauty Earth; the co-founder and chief operating officer of RideAmigos; and has previously served as the president of Ocean Park Neighborhood Association, Santa Monica, where he currently holds a position on the board of directors. Through Beauty Earth, Dina’s brother has been able to work with several artists who beautify street walls, as well as other walls offered by businesses and property owners.
The Actress is Impressively Tall
Dina Meyer’s longevity in Hollywood has something in common with the longevity of her beauty. The actress has remained as beautiful as she was when she made her debut in 1993. She stands at a height of 5 feet 7 inches and has a body weight of 52 kg. Other body measurements of hers are 34-24-34 inches for her bust, waist, and hips. She also has red hair.
