In 1929, she became a member of Eva Le Gallienne’s civic repertoire theater company in New York City. Although he is best known worldwide for his work in film and television, Meredith was an influential actor for the stage. He made his Broadway debut in Romeo and Juliet as Peter (1930). Finally he became a star in Maxwell Anderson Winterset (1935).

He received praise in 1935 after making The Virgins of Wimpole Street, starring Katharine Cornell.

Meredith was the narrator of The unknown dimension: The film, however does not appear in the credits.

Meredith appeared in several series as Rawhide (four times), The Virginian (twice), The Wild Wild West, The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters, Laredo, Bonanza and Daniel Boone.

In 1963, he appeared as Vincent Marion in a five episode episode of the last season of the 77 series Sunset Strip. Performed three times in The Burke Law (1963-1964), starring Gene Barry.

Meredith also played the Penguin in the Batman television series (1966-1968).
