Personal life

Dina Meyer was born and raised in Forest Hills, Queens, New York, but moved to Dix Hills, Long Island, just before her last year of junior high school. Her first experience in the entertainment industry came when she did some modeling from ages nine to 16. She always wanted to become an actress but her parents did not think that was a wise career move; they wanted her to get a good education, so she went to college and graduated from Long Island University in 1990 with a bachelor's degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing (and a minor in French).[8]

She has two brothers, one older named Gregory and one younger named Evan.[8]

Career

Meyer's film debut was in the TV film Strapped in 1993, and her role in the cyberpunk thriller Johnny Mnemonic was perhaps her breakthrough performance. Before that, she had a role in the TV series Beverly Hills, 90210 as Lucinda Nicholson. In addition to Johnny Mnemonic, she has had other roles in science fiction productions, such as Starship Troopers, Birds of Prey and Star Trek Nemesis. She played Detective Allison Kerry in the horror/thriller film Saw and its sequels. She made several guest appearances on Friends and Miss Match, the latter alongside another former Batgirl actress, Alicia Silverstone. She also played one of the leads on Point Pleasant. In March 2006, Meyer was in the series premiere episode of Thief as Wanda, the wife of Andre Braugher's character Nick, although her character did not reappear. In 2009 she made an appearance on Burn Notice as Samantha, Michael Weston's ex-fiancee. Meyer has a recurring role on ABC's 2010 series Scoundrels as Mrs. Hong.
