Elisabeth Moss is best known for her role as Peggy Olson on AMC's critically acclaimed series Mad Men, where she stars alongside January Jones, Christina Hendricks and Jon Hamm. But when Moss was cast for the part in 2007, she wasn't a Hollywood newcomer. Moss had already appeared in the film Girl, Interrupted (1999) and played first daughter Zoey Bartlet on The West Wing from 1999-2004.

While she's a star now, Moss definitely had to pay her dues. She had more than 40 notable film and TV roles prior to landing Mad Men. One of the jobs she took was a commerical for Excedrin pain medicine. Moss filmed the commercial in 2005, two years before she hit the bigtime with Mad Men, but the ad continues to pop up on the air. "I'm sure [Mad Men's] Peggy would get lots of headaches...both physical and emotional--but I think that Peggy also would have thought that was a great ad," said the actress in an interview with The New York Times.

After she conquered the small screen, Elisabeth found love with Saturday Night Live's Fred Armisen. Moss and Armisen married in 2009 and were together for 11 months before filing for divorce. Although Moss said she found the split hard to talk about, she did discuss it in a 2012 interview with the New York Post. Of her ex-husband, Moss said, "One of the greatest things I heard someone say about him is, 'He's so great at doing impersonations. But the greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person.' To me, that sums it up."

Aside from her Mad Men role, the actress turned in a stellar performance (including a New Zealand accent) in the Jane Campion mystery miniseries, Top of the Lake.
