After the Season 4 finale of MAD MEN this past Sunday (I liked the utter randomness of it), web search results skyrocketed for information about the actress who plays Don Draper's secretary Megan on the show. The actress is Jessica Pare and by the looks of things, expect to see a lot of her in the future. Jessica was definitely one of the foxier women on the show (which is littered with sexy high heel clad women), so I'm glad her character will be getting a larger role next season. I'd grown weary of January Jones as Betty (wanting to throw an actress off a bridge whenever her character walks on screen is not a good feeling), and even Christina Hendricks
as Joan wasn't lighting my fire as she normally does (the wardrobe people did not provide enough low-cut tops for her). I think the show needed a breath of fresh air on the female front, so I'm glad they chose this tall drink of brunette to help things moving along for Mr. Don Draper (literally the coolest train-wreck of a man on TV, period).
As of the moment, pictures for Jessica are kind of scarce on the net. I'm sure this will be remedied soon, as she will no doubt be attending numerous premiere events and gracing magazine pages before the lead up to MAD MEN season 5. I've included the best pictures of Jessica I could find below, as well as a censored version of her appearance in HOT TUB TIME MACHINE. From working topless in a hot tub to dressing up in business formal attire, Jessica definitely worked her way up that career ladder!
