Over two decades after "The Parent Trap" made its debut, the villainous character Meredith Blake is getting a redemption arc, thanks to TikTok.

And actor Elaine Hendrix, who played the almost-stepmom to twins Annie and Hallie (played by Lindsay Lohan) in the 1998 film, is here for it.

“TikTok users love Meredith Blake, and I love them,” Hendrix said in a recent phone interview.

In the film, Meredith is the young, beautiful and gold-digging fiancé of Nick Parker (Dennis Quaid), who is father to Annie and Hallie. The twin sisters were separated at birth, but reunite years later at a summer camp. There, they come up with a plan to reconcile their parents' relationship ... by sabotaging Meredith's engagement with their father.

For those who grew up with the film, Meredith was not the character to root for. At one point, the twins go on a camping trip with her and their dad and play pranks on her the entire time. Most people laugh along with the twins' shenanigans, rather than sympathize with the seemingly evil stepmom-to-be.
