Jessica Paré appeared only at the end of Mad Men's fourth season as Megan, but her character certainly kept busy in the hiatus, marrying Jon Hamm's Don Draper.
By the end of the season 5 premiere, the Canadian actress had created a sensation – on TV and on the Internet.
Clad in a black mini-dress, the sexy Paré, 29, belted out a killer performance of "Zou Bisou Bisou" for Don's birthday in an episode of AMC's hit show. Suddenly, Google lit up with searches for the French song.
Here are five things to know about Mad Men's newest lady on the block:

When Mad Men's season 4 wrapped up nearly a year and a half ago, Don Draper (Jon Hamm) was on the precipice of a major life change. He had proposed to his young secretary, Megan (Jessica Paré) after taking her on a trip to Disneyland with his children.
As in seasons past, Sunday night's premiere episode has been shrouded in secrecy – with nary a plot point revealed. (Not even the year in which the season is set!)
So, if you haven't seen the season 5 premiere yet, stop reading! There are spoilers ahead …

About seven weeks after the birth of her son, Xander, January Jones was back to work in the role that made her both admired and pitied, the former Betty Draper, now the re-married Betty Francis, on AMC's Mad Men.
With her baby still "really little," says the actress, 34, returning to the set "was tough with the long days. But work made it really comfortable for me."
As it was, "Every season I have a little kind of first day of school nerves. The first episode I'm always finding my way back into my character's shoes. … But then after a few days, I'm able to fall pretty easily back into her, and find her voice and her body language and everything that I do for her," says Jones.

You wouldn't mess with Don Draper around the office at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. And you shouldn't mess with Jon Hamm, the man behind those suits and ties, on the Mad Men set.
But his costars thought about it.
John Slattery, who plays troubled executive Roger Sterling, and Elisabeth Moss, who plays secretary-turned-ad copywriter Peggy Olson on the AMC series – whose season 5 premiere is Sunday – attempted to play a prank on Hamm when he was making his directorial debut for the show's April 1 episode.

AMC's Mad Men is back Sunday after an absence of more than a year, and its maniacally intense fans are anticipating what new developments are in the pipeline at the chilled offices of 1960s ad agency Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. Mad Men is too subtle to resort to cliffhangers – people here live or die according to what account gets signed over a business lunch lubricated with drinks – but season 4 ended with everyone poised on the brink of ... something.
Something maybe good, possibly bad. Maybe neither. It's that kind of show. Ominous, but incrementally so.
Before Sunday's premiere, here's a refresher as to where the show's main characters were when we left them:

People swoon over Jon Hamm. And that leaves him … a little perplexed.
"I don't necessarily think of myself like the handsome guy. That's reserved for Brad Pitt and Ryan Reynolds and those guys," the Mad Men star, 41, tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Not that he's complaining.
"It's certainly nice when people say nice things about you, don't get me wrong," he says. "I guess I never really thought of myself that way. I just wanted to be a regular person and try to portray parts as varied as I could."

This week's war of words between Jon Hamm and Kim Kardashian has reached a ceasefire, at least for the time being.
"It's surprising to me that it has become remotely a story," the Mad Man star, 41, told E! News about his unflattering quotes to ELLE UK about the reality star, whom he labeled "stupid."
"I don't know Ms. Kardashian," Hamm continued. "I know her public persona. What I said was meant to be more on pervasiveness of something in our culture, not personal, but she took offense to it, and that is her right."
As E! notes, this sounds more like an amplification rather than an apology.

Elisabeth Moss has something to say about her ex-husband Fred Armisen, and the funnyman might not be smiling at her remarks.
"One of the greatest things I heard someone say about him is, 'He's so great doing impersonations. But the greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person.' To me, that sums it up," the Mad Men actress, 29, tells Page Six Magazine.
She adds: "I've never told anyone that. And I don't want to waste any more of my life talking about it."
Biting comments indeed, and Moss knows it.
