Megan DraperPlayed by Jessica Paré
Megan scintillated in the bedroom and the office, showing off with a sexy burlesque song at Don’s surprise birthday party then selling a Heinz baked beans pitch, impromptu, at a dinner with curmudgeon client Raymond Geiger. Although talented and successful as a fledgling copywriter, Megan found herself feeling unfulfilled. She eventually gathered the courage to tell Don she was quitting advertising to pursue her original dream of being an actress. Megan struggled getting an acting job, then ultimately asked Don to give her a role in a commercial. He obliged.
