Biography

After making a splash with her breakthrough role in "American Wedding" (2003), actress January Jones quickly rose up the ranks to become a prominent screen presence in film and on television. Prior to her emergence, Jones started her career as a model, which naturally segued into acting. She made the rounds of independent film and guest spots on television, landing a small role in "All the Rage" (1999) while appearing in the pilot episode of "Get Real" (Fox, 1999-2000). After supporting roles in the features "Anger Management" (2001) and "Love Actually," she continued her rise with more notable features and bigger parts in such fare as "Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights" (2004) and "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada" (2005). But it was her regular series role as the long-suffering housewife Betty Draper on the critically acclaimed "Mad Men" (AMC, 2007-2015) that earned Jones serious consideration as an actress. Even as big screen efforts like "X-Men: First Class" (2011) increased her Hollywood stock, rumors about her personal life increasingly vied for page space whenever Jones was mentioned in the press, indicating, perhaps, that she had indeed finally achieved the level of stardom she had for so long pursued.
