Dina Meyer (born December 22, 1968) is an American film and television actress who played Barbara Gordon in Birds of Prey, Dizzy Flores in Starship Troopers, and Detective Allison Kerry in the Saw films. She portrayed Mrs. Hong as a recurring guest star on ABC's Scoundrels.
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 Long Island University, graduating in 1990 with a B.A. in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing and a minor in French.
She has two brothers, one older named Gregory and one younger named Evan.
Meyer started acting in 1993, with her first major role playing Lucinda Nicholson in the TV series Beverly Hills, 90210 (though before this, she had starred in several promos for HBO in 1989 and 1990 promoting their summer lineups). In the same year she made her film debut in the TV film Strapped. She broke out two years later, playing the cybernetically enhanced bodyguard Jane in the cyberpunk thriller Johnny Mnemonic. In addition to Johnny Mnemonic, she has played roles in other science fiction productions including Starship Troopers, Birds of Prey (as Batgirl) 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 (in Batman & Robin), 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.
