With the final season of her hit AMC series "Mad Men" set to premiere on April 13th, Jessica Pare scored herself a feature in the April 2014 issue of Esquire magazine.

The 33-year-old Canadian actor donned sexy lingerie and swimsuits for the sultry Zoey Grossman-shot spread, while she shared details about her first experience on the "Mad Men" set and revealed green card issues that almost cost her the job.

"I really struggled," Miss Pare explained about her green card delay. "What was supposed to take three months took nine. I couldn't work or travel, and the momentum that I had gained from 'Jack & Bobby' just dissipated."

She continued, "I was ready to move back to my parents' place, ready to get a job at my friend's bar back home and just pack it in."

In regards to her "Mad Men" audition, Jessica stated, "I had nothing left to lose. I went into the audition thinking, 'This is it. If you don't like it, that's fine. Nobody else has.'"
