Christina Hendricks is an American actress of film, stage, television and video games, whose accolades include six Primetime Emmy Award nominations, and two Screen Actors Guild Awards. Hendricks began her career as a model in the early 1990s before transitioning into acting in commercials. Her first substantial role was on the MTV series Undressed (1999), after which she was cast in the series Beggars and Choosers (1999–2001). After appearances on Firefly (2002–2003) and several other series, she was cast as Joan Holloway on the AMC series Mad Men (2007–2015), which earned her a total of six Emmy Award nominations over its seven-season run, as well as two Screen Actors Guild Awards for Best Ensemble.
