Actress Jessica Pare is mad about Mad Men


French Canadian actress Jessica Pare is "never" taking her role on hit TV drama Mad Men for granted.

On the series about a 1960s advertising firm, Pare plays Megan Draper, otherwise known as the wife of sexy leading character Don Draper (played by Jon Hamm).

Despite having sealed a TV marriage to such a high-profile character, the 31-year-old actress is not about to assume that her character is going to be around forever.

Speaking over the telephone from her home in Montreal, Canada, she tells Life!: "Even at the end of Season 4, when my character got proposed to, everyone around me were sure that I would be coming back as Don's wife in Season 5. But I was like, 'You don't know that. The writers can go in a totally different direction. So I have two words for you - closed casket.'
