Jessica Paré imports French-Canadian flair on Mad Men

JessicaParé.jpgFans of the American TV series Mad Men are eagerly awaiting the show's sixth season which begins next month. 

One of the biggest questions is what will happen in the marriage between main character Don Draper and his much younger French-Canadian wife, Megan. 

Jessica Paré, the real-life actress who plays Megan, grew up Montreal's NDG neighbourhood.

Cinq à Six guest host Raji Sohal speaks to Jessica about the pressures of being an "it" girl and how her background inspired the writer of the show.
