Meet Christina Hendricks, the actress making a name for herself on the new hit show “Mad Men”, which appears on AMC. See her biography, photos, and video here.
The second season of “Mad Men”, in which Christina Hendricks appears as the gorgeous Joan Holloway, came to an end. The season finale aired on AMC on October 26, 2008.
As a biography, Christina Hendricks was born on May 3, 1978 in Knoxville, Tennessee, so her age is 30. Her measurements are 5’8″. She moved to Twin Falls, Idaho with her family at the age of 3, and then to Fairfax, Virginia after 8th grade. In Twin Falls, her mother signed her up for community theater, and the acting bug was born. In high school, Christina says she was kind of an outcast, one of the Goth girls who was into theater.
Christina began her career as a model and landed her first acting gig in 1999. Since then she has made one-time appearances in a variety of television shows, including “Angel” and “ER”. She landed her big break when she won a role on “Beggars and Choosers”, and then again with the role of Joan Holloway in AMC’s “Mad Men”. Her character is the office manager at the advertising agency. The ensemble cast, including Christina, has been nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award.
Christina turned heads at the 2008 Emmys where “Mad Men” won Best Drama Series. She appeared in a stunning green dress with a plunging neckline and curve-hugging middle, and stole the attention from her castmates. Of her gorgeous figure, Christina says,
Some of us have curves. We have a little booty and we have breasts and why on Earth should we be trying to hide them?
