Christina Hendricks had been dropped y an agency. The star is popular for her role in the television series Mad Men(Joan Harris) and she was when she landed herself this part. The thirty nine year old part on the show is set in an advertising agency and she says that going thorough her personal experiences with the agency is almost similar to those with her on-screen character. She told The Guardian newspaper:
“[My agency] said, ‘It’s a period piece, it’s never going to go anywhere. We need you to make money and this isn’t going to make money.’ They ended up dropping me.”
As Hendricks talks about how she and her manager like the role of Joan, knowing that she indeed had the potential to develop the character. She added:
“I had been on several shows that were meant to be the big ones, that would go on forever, and they didn’t. So there was no sure bet and I’d already taken a chance on them, and I felt, why not do the one you’re in love with and take a chance on that?”
At this time she is starring in ‘God’s Pocket’.
