"Mad Men" star Christina Hendricks indulged her passion for flowers by working as a florist during a past break from shooting the hit U.S. TV show.
Hendricks, who shot to fame playing office manager Joan in the drama, has always harbored an ambition to show off her green-thumbed skills, so she took a job in a flower shop during her time off. The actress admits her co-stars were stunned when they spotted her working in the store, but she was happy to arrange bouquets for them.
"I always wanted to be a florist," she told Flare magazine. "Unless you're buying flowers for a funeral, you're only going in there for a pretty happy reason. In fact after the first season of Mad Men, I worked at a florist. We had shot the pilot and it hadn't aired yet. We had to wait a year to shoot because (creator) Matthew Weiner was finishing 'The Sopranos.' And all these actors that I'd worked with would come in and say, 'Oh... Everything OK?' "And I said 'No! I've just always wanted to work at a florist.' And they would say, 'OK, can you help me pick out a bouquet?' And I'd be like, 'I'll make you one!' I've always been pretty good at it."
