Q) I love the new series Raven. Please provide some information on Jeffrey Meek, who stars. How tall is he? Is he married? What movies/other TV shows can we see him in?

A) Meek is a 6-foot-2-inch, 185-pound California native who earned his bachelor of arts degree in drama from the University of California in Irvine. He began his acting career with stage work, including Death of a Salesman and Romeo and Juliet. He's "put in a lot of miles" in TV and film, as he puts it - but with disappointment until Raven came along. "I had four feature films and four series pilots before this. I thought each one would do something, but they didn't," he says. His credits include the ill-fated star vehicles Heart Condition with Bob Hoskins and Denzel Washington, Winter People with Kurt Russell, and Johnny Handsome with Mickey Rourke. He also guested on such series as Miami Vice. The actor, who is an avid martial arts student, is single and lives in Los Angeles.
