Jessica Pare first turned heads in Stardom (2000), broke our hearts in Lost and Delirious (2001), played the catalyst for karmic intervention in Bollywood/Hollywood (2002) and, somehow, pulled off being a secret villain in Posers (2003). She then went onto made-for-TV movies, starting with a small role in Bonanno: A Godfather's Story (1999) (TV). She eventually was part of the twice Gemini-nominated mini-series, "Random Passage" (2002). Now, she can be seen on CTV, most recently as "Nancy Eaton" in The Death and Life of Nancy Eaton (2003) (TV), and Lives of the Saints (2004) (TV). She made her Hollywood debut as Josh Hartnett's fiancée in Wicker Park (2004), which premiered in 2004.
She would continue to work steadily lading a part in the short-lived TV series Jack & Bobby, the same year she enjoyed leading roles in Wicker Park and The Secret Lives of the Saints. After a few years off-screen, she returned in 2009 in the movies Suck and The Trotsky. However, she landed her most high-profile gig to date in 2010 when she was cast in Mad Men as character who would become Don Draper's third wife.
Jessica Paré was only 18 when she landed the lead role in Denys Arcand’s Stardom, a film whose title many believed foreshadowed Paré’s future in show business. But after a string of forgettable performances in a catalog of mediocre films, Paré’s star seemed to be fading almost as quickly as it had risen. After nearly a decade of searching for her breakout role, Pare came back with a vengeance in 2009, starring in the vampire comedy Suck, followed by a small but memorable role in the sleeper hit Hot Tub Time Machine.
