Willa Fitzgerald as Meg

Where you’ve seen her before: As Emma Duval on MTV’s Scream. Fitzgerald has also recurred on Royal Pains and Alpha House.

Her Little Women character: Meg is Jo’s closest friend and vice versa. She is the eldest March girl and the most sensible of the sisters, but also secretly longs for a more glamorous, comfortable life than the one her poor family can give her.

Predecessors: Trini Alvarado (1994), Janet Leigh (1949), and Frances Dee (1933).
