—Henry to Jen

Henry Parker is a recurring character on Dawson's Creek. He appeared in Season 3 and is portrayed by Michael Pitt.


Henry is a freshman football player who has a crush on Jen Lindley. He makes many attempts to persuade her to go on a date with him, and ultimately is successful.

"and I'm grateful for that." – Henry to Jen when she opens up to him.

He is kind, sweet, gentle and has, as Jen describes him, this big, bleeding heart from which he pours out his emotions and she finds it incredibly intense at first, but also enormously impressive.

Arc Edit

Henry starts Capeside High School as a freshman and a second stringer on the football team, but gets promoted when he brings Jack McPhee to the team and the two quickly become friends. Jack is also Henry's advisee on Jen, who Henry is completely lost in.

Trivia Edit

  • Henry is the first freshman quarterback in the school's history[1].
