Christina Hendricks Mad Men
In the American historical drama television series Mad Men, Hendricks plays Joan Harris, the witty 60s office manager and supervisor of the secretarial pool at Sterling Cooper. In Season 2, she marries Dr. Greg Harri. By the third season, both are married, and Joan accepts Greg’s invitation to leave her position at Sterling Cooper.
Greg’s lack of skill as a physician, and the resulting difficulty in securing a permit for Joan to return to work at a department shop, causes her to call Roger Sterling for assistance in finding a job.
Because of her important organisational and managerial talents, she is later hired by the news agency formed by Don, Roger, Bert, and Lane. Meanwhile, Greg’s determination to pursue his career as a surgeon leads him to join the Army, where he is sent to basic training and then to Vietnam early in Season 4. Joan and Roger have one sexual experience while her husband is gone, which culminates in her becoming pregnant. Joan considers terminating the pregnancy at first, but changes her mind and gives birth shortly before the start of Season 5, oblivious to the fact that her husband is not the father.
Greg returns from Vietnam during Season 5, but he and Joan are divorced before the end of the season after Greg informs Joan that he would be going to Vietnam for another service tour, regardless of their thoughts on the matter. Joan has become a full partner at SCDP by the conclusion of Season 5, in exchange for consenting to sleep with a Jaguar executive to help get the contract. Don ends his friendship with Jaguar just before SCDP makes a public bid for the sixth season.
Joan is enraged at the possible lost income as well as the fact that her efforts were in vain. At the end of the series, she is threatened by McCann executives and decides to buy out her portion of the relationship.
