Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A gifted actress and veteran of series television, Elisabeth Moss wasted no time getting her career off the ground. Starting as a child actor, Moss graduated high school two years early and stayed out of trouble during her teens by choosing to focus solely on her work. As a result of her unusually mature work ethic, Moss was rarely without a job. After working steadily in film and television for years, Moss landed her big break in 1999 when she was cast as Martin Sheen's daughter on "The West Wing" (NBC, 1999-2006). Moving from her supporting berth at the White House, Moss took on a more challenging adult role as 1960s-era secretary-turned-copywriter Peggy Olson on "Mad Men" (AMC, 2007-15), the critically acclaimed drama from "The Sopranos" (HBO, 1999-2007) writer-producer, Matthew Weiner, as well as a comedy role in the Judd Apatow-produced "Get Him to the Greek" (2010). Precocious and talented, Moss seemed ready for any acting challenge on the big or small screen.
