Christina Hendricks is going back to the present.

The redhead bombshell plays sultry office manager Joan Holloway on AMC’s 1960s drama Mad Men, but she’ll be returning as Olivia on the NBC series Life for its upcoming season.

 “I’m actually working there next Thursday,” she tells the TV Fanatic exclusively. “I’m doing two episodes.”

Life was eager to get Christina to reprise the role.


"The’ve been going back and forth with Mad Men to make sure I was available," she says. "I had to squeeze it in."


Christina’s not sure if Olivia, who was engaged to Charlie’s estranged father, will make it to the altar when she returns. “I have not received the script yet, so I don’t know what’s going to happen,” she admits.  

Hmmm, pretty sure whatever Christina’s involved in, there will be dangerous curves ahead.


Catch Christina in Mad Men Sundays at 10 p.m on AMC.
