Jessica Pare Covers ELLE Canada March 2013
Before chatting with the mag about portraying Don Draper's wife, the 30-year-old actress posed for a glamorous front page shoot with John Van Der Schilden.
During the interview, Jessica chatted about her audition for the AMC series, and said, "I didn't know what I was auditioning for, but the character description was 'brunette female.' I was like, 'Check and check!' I had no idea what the part would turn into."
"The first time Megan and Don [Jon Hamm] kissed, the costumer turned to me and was like 'Well, it was great working with you, buddy.' And then it turned into being Mrs. Draper, which I still can't f****** believe. I'm so grateful," Miss Pare added.
Though most people generally dislike her character, the brunette beauty argued, "How can you not love Megan? I do. People will react to me as an actor, though. Everybody has their opinions - I'm the worst about, like, 'Oh, I don't like that actress' for no reason. So I understand that, but I think the character is fantastic. She's so spontaneous and genuine."
When comparing herself to Megan, she quipped, "I think I have a bit of a darker edge than she does, although it may not be the first thing people think about me because I am outgoing and I like to joke. That used to be how I judged the quality of my auditions."
