A French-Canadian starlet, Jessica Paré achieved "Stardom" (2000) in Canada with her turn as an unlikely hockey-playing supermodel. She delivered a strong performance as a boarding school student conflicted about her sexuality in the coming-of-age drama "Lost and Delirious" (2001) opposite Piper Perabo, and crossed over to American fame as Josh Hartnett's fiancée in "Wicker Park" (2004). Dividing her time between American and Canadian projects, Paré was a series regular on "Jack & Bobby" (The WB, 2004-05) and booked a flashy supporting role as a groupie in "Hot Tub Time Machine" (2010). She had her biggest break, however, as the scene-stealing Megan Calvert, the second wife of Don Draper on "Mad Men" (AMC, 2007- ). A secretary-turned- stepmother and junior copywriter, Paré's Megan dazzled audiences with a slinky performance of the song "Zou Bisou Bisou," igniting a furor that promised to propel the glamor girl to even greater heights. A hardworking actress, Jessica Paré enjoyed a quiet but steady professional ascent that promised to increase her profile beyond North America.
