Rachael Leigh Cook began her career in the 1995 film The Baby-Sitters Club, based on the popular book series of the same name. She continued additional small young adult roles until she made her big debut as the romantic lead in the teen romantic comedy

The same year she found new fame on the big screen, she had also starred in three episodes of Dawson's Creek as the character Devon. During her brief time in Capeside, Dawson cast her to play Joey in his film Creek Daze. However, Joey disputed her casting and grew to dislike her. She even ended up posing nude in Joey’s art class, to her dismay.

Cook’s arc came to an end in the episode “A Perfect Wedding”, closing the chapter on the daring Devon.
