Christina Hendricks is a renowned American actress who has been featured in several top-grossing films and TV shows. Her acting dexterity is what makes her stand out. She’s also most known for casting as Joan Holloway in TV series entitled, “Mad Men,” of AMC.
Christina was born to Robert Hendricks and Jackie Sue in Knoxville, Tennessee, on May 3, 1975. Robert was a government worker, while Jackie was a psychologist. His father, Robert, was originally from Great Britain, specifically in Birmingham, England.
However, he moved to the U.S. and worked as a forester for the U.S. Forest Service Department. Christina is currently a duel citizen of the U.S. and U.K. Furthermore, she and her family have to move to different places in her early years because of his father’s job.
The first part of her childhood was spent in Portland, Oregon, and then they later moved to Twin Falls, Idaho. Her family again relocated to Fairfax, Virginia when she was 14-years-old. It was where she spent her high school days in Fairfax High School.
Unfortunately, she struggled in that school because she was bullied by her classmates.
Christina knew her passion in life at an early age. And so, despite all the challenges she had to go through, especially her being bullied at school, she still managed to achieve her dreams. It didn’t took look for her to be discovered by a talent agent.
This eventually landed her a number of gigs in the film industry. Her biggest and most popular role was as Joan Holloway in the TV show, “Mad Men.” This even gave her six Primetime Emmy Award nominations for her critically acclaimed role.
It was a huge boost to her confidence as she was recognized globally. All these started when she appeared in a cover competition of Seventeen Magazine. This served as her entry point to show business. This led to her signing a contract with a modeling agency.
At 18-years-old, she then moved to New York City to achieve her dreams of becoming a model. However, she realized that it wasn’t her calling as she decided to focus on her acting career instead. Her acting debut was in a children’s musical for “Twin Falls.”
Her first time to appear on TV was in “Undressed,” an anthology series for MTV. The show boosted her popularity further which eventually made her recognized in Hollywood.
Her next big role was as Kelly Kramer in comedy-drama series, “Beggars and Choosers,” which was for Showtime. Many believe that it was this show that cemented her as one of the most notable actresses in the industry.
She then starred in a number of other films and TV series which includes “Kevin Hill,” “The Big Time,” and “Firefly,” to name a few. Christina also appeared in medical drama series “ER,” as well as making a guest appearance in “Miss Match.”
Some of her other notable appearances are in “Without a Trace” and “Presidio Med.” Christina Hendricks’ breakthrough role was in “Mad Men,” a hit AMC drama show in 2007.
It was during this time that she managed to break away from her being seen as an amateur, into becoming one of the best actresses of today. This also enabled her to get more and bigger roles in the years to come.
It was also the show which landed her an Emmy Award, a huge win as it was the first time a cable series won an award. Later, Christina again aced another role in her film with Ryan Gosling, Nicolas Winding Refn, and Carey Milligan, in “Drive.”
It was a hugely successful movie, thus prompting another team up with her and Gosling for another film, “Lost River.”
Christina playing the role of Johanna Roberts in “The Strangers: Prey at Night,” a horror movie, also landed her lots of great criticisms despite the movie having negative reviews.
It was a good thing for her as this gave movie makers a chance to get her into playing better roles for better films.
Marriage to Geoffrey Arend
Christina Hendricks married Geoffrey Arrend, a TV and theater actor, just like herself. It was Vincent Kartheiser, her “Mad Men” co-star, who introduced her first to Geoffrey. It was a startling first meet up for them as they had an affectionate glance for each other.
They dated for two years until deciding to get married. Since then, they have never parted ways and have always been at each other’s side. Furthermore, Geoffrey has been in the show business for nearly a decade now.
However, he and Christina still don’t have any kids as of now. And we still don’t know the reason. Many believe that they are still busy with their respective work and that they still don’t have time to attend to their children’s needs if ever they have some.
Meanwhile, there are also those that think that Christina is unable to bear a child because she is already 43 years old. Nonetheless, it’s safe to assume that it’s on their decision whether they’d like to or not.
