Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks paid a recent visit to Twin Falls,
She says her childhood in Twin Falls was one of the best years of her life. Christina Hendricks’ family has moved several times. Her father worked for the United States Forest Service. He was transferred often and that included several years based here. Christina began performing in the local theater before the family left Idaho for Northern Virginia, where she graduated from high school.
Hendricks registered under a pseudonym but spent quite a bit of time chatting with the locals.
The oft-nominated Emmy-nominated actress was “home again” not too long ago. She stayed in a hotel one block from my house. Hendricks registered under a pseudonym but spent quite a bit of time conversing with the locals.
Including a friend of mine. My friend has a rare breed of dog and the actress was won over. She had a lot of questions about the animal, known as Papillon. However, the red-haired star would have been better off calling the dog by its alternate name, the Continental Toy Spaniel. See, Hendricks had a hard time pronouncing Papillon. In French, the word sounds like Pap-ee-yawn. It is the French word for butterfly. Dogs have butterfly-shaped ears.
My friend did not recognize the woman who was asking questions. She doesn’t watch TV and has never seen Mad Men. Hendricks played an office manager. A character with serious diplomatic and problem-solving skills.
My friend would have thought it was just another chance encounter with another dog lover until her kids explained that the redhead was not only a well-known actress, but part of our culture. Mad Men was a cultural phenomenon during his long time on AMC. It’s nice to hear that the actress is very down to earth. The time spent at Twin Falls may be a reason why it is so entrenched.
