Ari Meyers was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico on April 6, 1969. She
began an acting career at age 12 with her role as Al Pacino's
step-daughter in Al Pacino's "Author! Author!" and hasn't looked
back since. Her mother, actress Tara Meyer, Ari dictated her first
play, "The Super Magic Show", for her nursery school class to her
mom when she was 5. She directed, came up with the scripts, and
choreographed the dancers! At age 5 Ari became a child model but
took a hiatus when she decided she would rather play than go to
auditions. Her most famous role to date is that of Emma McCardle,
which she portrayed on the 80's sitcom, "Kate & Allie" for six
years until 1990. In 1991 Ari Meyers graduated from Yale with
honors and a double major in philosophy and theatre arts, and she
was also an honor student throughout her high school years.
