Christina Hendricks

Originally hailing from Mississippi, Christina Hendricks launched her modeling career at 18, which spanned until she was 27. Concurrently, she ventured into television, landing notable roles in "ER" and "Firefly," the cult sci-fi series by Joss Whedon.

Director Nicolas Winding Refn cast her in the stylish thriller "Drive" as Blanche, a heist accomplice.
Switching gears, Hendricks returned briefly to comedy in "I Don't Know How She Does It," opposite Sarah Jessica Parker. She reunited with Ryan Gosling for his directorial debut, "Lost River," portraying a struggling mother navigating a surreal world to survive. That same year, she starred alongside Charlize Theron in the thriller "Dark Places."
