Elisabeth Moss, best known for playing presidential daughter Zoey Bartlet on the "West Wing," portrays young and sexy secretary-turned-copywriter Peggy Olson on AMC's "Mad Men." Since the show's first season, Peggy has changed significantly, especially in relating to the opposite sex. As the only woman on the creative staff, Peggy struggles to get into the boys' club. Here, the star discusses her character's journey and on-screen style. Although love and romance are the last things her character is looking for, Moss dishes on her own off-show dating life.
On the surface, Joan Holloway is a secretarial stereotype: the super-sexy, head-turning queen bee of the office, the one who's having a hot affair with her married boss. But as played by Christina Hendricks, Joan is so much more, and one of the many delights of "Mad Men," in its second season on AMC. "She's so fun because she's so different from anything I've ever played before, and the furthest from me," says Hendricks, whose resumé includes regular roles on "Kevin Hill" and "Beggars and Choosers" and guest spots on "Las Vegas," "Without a Trace," "Cold Case," "ER" and "Firefly." Hendricks loves that her character is self-confident and not a victim, while playful, sexual and confident. The sexy actress herself tells about her real-life romance with her live-in boyfriend Geoffrey Arend, and dealing with crushes at work.
