Who is Dina Meyer?

Born on the 22nd of December 1968, in Queens, New York City USA, Dina Meyer is a 49-year-old Jewish-American film and television actress, perhaps best known for her roles as Barbara Gordon in “Birds of Prey”, Dizzy Flores in “Starship Troopers” and Allison Kerry in the “Saw” series, plus a number of recurring roles in other films and TV shows. She has been active in the often lucrative acting business since 1993.

Early Life and Education

Her family moved to Dix Hills in Long Island, New York when she was very young, and where she grew-up with an older brother, Gregory, and a younger one called Evan. She started out as a very young model at the age of nine, which she continued throughout her schooling, up to age 16. During this time, she also earned the nickname ‘Melon Seed’, which one of her friends gave her. As a child, she was keen on pursuing an acting career and willing to attend various auditions, however, her parents insisted that she first obtain a degree, thus after matriculating she enrolled at Long Island University, from where in 1990 she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, and a minor in French.

Career Beginnings

Right after finishing her formal education, Dina went on to study acting at The Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City, following such as Sandra Bullock, Michael Douglas, Jeff Goldblum, Diane Keaton and Leslie Nielsen, where she was taught the techniques of Sanford Meisner alongside Ron Stetson for approximately three years. She debuted in a TV romantic drama entitled “Beverly Hills, 90210”, which required her to move to Los Angeles, California USA. In the same year of 1993, she had a small part as a delivery person in “Strapped”, but her TV presence on the show from 1993 to 1994 helped her land her first significant role, as Jane in “Johnny Mnemonic” in 1995, with Keanu Reeves, Dolph Lundgren and Ice-T, important for her career for numerous reasons, one of which is the fact that she did almost all her stunts by herself, thus establishing the reputation of a versatile actress. In 1996 she moved to Europe for six months to shoot her second big film entitled “DragonHeart”, where she got first-hand experience with computer-generated imagery (CGI) and other special effects.

Further Career

After proving herself in two significant roles, she was ready for the big game. Since she and Matt LeBlanc shared the same agent, Dina was cast in a recurring role in the hit sitcom “Friends”, which certainly jump-started her career. She then landed the first of her more famous roles, as Dizzy Flores in “Starship Troopers” in 1997. Following a small role in the TV series “Ally McBeal”, and in the film “Poodle Springs”, she went on to star in “Bats”, “Stranger Than Fiction”, “Secret Agent Man”, “Eye See You”, and “Six Feet Under”, to name a few. In 2002, she landed the roles of Barbara Gordon, Oracle and Batgirl in “Birds of Prey”, however, the greatest contribution to her fame arrived in 2004, when she was cast as Kerry in the original “Saw”, which she reprised in the three later versions of the franchise, thus cementing her name in Hollywood stardom. However, Dina isn’t only an actress, as she funneled some of her resources into three films as the associate producer – “The Unwilling”, “Turbulence” and “Fatal Secrets”.

Relationship Status

According to Dina herself, she is currently single. However, there were certain rumors back in 2001 that she may have been dating actor Shane West, but even though they appeared together at movie premieres multiple times, and interacted on social networks, Dina never confirmed that she was dating Shane. Additionally, there was some gossip regarding her relationship with the musician Billy Joel, although Dina actually denied that rumor.

What is Dina Meyer’s Net Worth?

Have you ever wondered how rich Dina Meyer is, as of early 2018? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Dina’s accumulated wealth is around $5 million. Undoubtedly the successes she has achieved as an actress and associate producer thus far have immensely contributed to the increase of this digit, and she is likely to continue gaining wealth as her career is still in full bloom.
