Rule 5 Saturday - Mad Spy - Jessica Paré

This week for Rule 5 Sunday I'm featuring Jessica Paré:
Jessica Paré (born December 5, 1980) is a Canadian actress and singer. She is best known for her co-starring role as Megan Draper on the AMC series Mad Men. She has also appeared in the films Stardom (2000), Lost and Delirious (2001), Wicker Park (2004), Suck (2009), Hot Tub Time Machine (2010), and Brooklyn (2015).
Not having watched Mad Men, I first noticed her in Seal Team, the current CBS drama in which she plays the CIA officer Amanda "Mandy" Ellis, associated the Navy Seal team headed by  Master Chief Special Warfare OperatorA Jason Hayes, played by Angel Booth David Boreanaz.

Random factoids:
Paré was born in Montréal, Québec, the daughter of Anthony Paré, former chair of the Education department at McGill University, and Louise Mercier, a conference interpreter. She grew up in the Montréal neighbourhood of Notre-Dame-de-Grâce with three brothers. She speaks both English and French.

Through her great-great-uncle Noah Timmins, Paré is the third cousin, once removed, of Peter, Michael and Margo Timmins of Cowboy Junkies, and of their sister, actress Cali Timmins. Celebrated 18th-century Irish dramatist, fiction writer, essayist and actress, Elizabeth Griffith, through her son, politician Richard Griffith, was Paré's great-great-great-great-great-grandmother.
She paid the usual dues along the way (NSFW links).

Linked at Pirate's Cove in the weekly "Sorta Blogless Sunday Pinup" and links. Wombat-socho has "Rule 5 Sunday: Bikini Barrel Racing?" and "FMJRA 2.0: Exactly What You Wanted" up and running at The Other McCain.

I gotta watch that one!
