Christina Hendricks Bio

Christina Rene Hendricks was born on May 3, 1975 in Knoxville, Tennessee. Her father, who worked for the United States Forest Service, was from Birmingham, England. Her family moved around the United States because of her father’s profession. Hendricks spent a few years living in Fairfax, Virginia; Portland, Oregon; and Twin Falls, Idaho.

Hendricks began acting in school and started modelling at 18. After appearing in lesser known television shows like ‘The Big Time’ and ‘The Court,’ Hendricks had recurring roles in ‘ER’ and the cult sci-fi show ‘Firefly.’ She also guest-starred in episodes of ‘Angel,’ ‘Miss Match,’ ‘Tru Calling,’ ‘Presidio Med,’ ‘Without a Trace,’ and ‘Las Vegas.’ Hendricks’ breakthrough came when she became a regular cast member on AMC’s critically acclaimed drama ‘Mad Men.’ Hendricks’ character, Joan Holloway, is the office manager of advertising agency Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (SCDP). She mentors female co-workers on how to deal with the sexism and callousness of the mostly male advertising executives. Hendricks has been nominated twice for an Emmy award in the Supporting Actress category. Hendricks appeared in the 2011 thriller ‘Drive,’ starring opposite Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan.

Hendricks receives much attention for her full-figured body and has been praised by both men and women alike for her ‘hourglass’ figure. In a 2010 poll of female readers, Hendricks was voted “Sexiest Woman in the World” by Esquire magazine. Hendricks is married to actor Geoffrey Arend.
