Meredith Leigh Monroe (born December 30, 1968) appears as the estranged wife of Bluebell, Alabama's Dr. Brick Breeland and estranged mother of Lemon and Magnolia Breeland in The CW's new series "Hart of Dixie," a fish-out-of-water story about a New York City doctor (Rachel Bilson) adjusting to life in a small Southern town after she inherits a local medical practice.
Monroe was born in Houston, Texas and raised in Hinsdale, Illinois. Before acting, Meredith appeared on packaging for such products like a Conair hair crimper and was on five book covers in the Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys series. She made her TV debut in 1996 with a commercial for Tylenol Sinus and later had her first role on ABC's now-canceled TV show "Dangerous Minds." Meredith Monroe plays Andie McPhee on the WB's phenomenally popular show "Dawson's Creek" and appears in the movie "Fallen Arches."
