Thumbs up= Thumbs down= Thumbs sideways=

Linda Cardellini grew up in the San Francisco Bay area, the youngest of four children. She became interested in acting at age 10, when she performed a singing role in a school Christmas play, then continued to do school productions and community theater. After graduating high school, Cardellini had to decide whether to go to New York to pursue theater or Los Angeles to pursue film and television. She chose LA. She landed her first role in Bone Chillers (1996). Her breakthrough role came when she was cast in "Freaks and Geeks" (1999). Cardellini attended Loyola Marymount University's College of Communication and Fine Arts, graduating in 2001 with a degree in theater.
"Mad Men" revolves around the conflicted world of Don Draper (Jon Hamm), the biggest ad man (and ladies man) in the business, and his colleagues at the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Advertising Agency. As Don makes the plays in the boardroom and the bedroom, he struggles to stay a step ahead of the rapidly changing times and the young executives nipping at his heels. The series also depicts authentically the roles of men and women in this era while exploring the true human nature beneath the guise of 1960s traditional family values.
