Happy 32nd birthday, Elisabeth Moss! Before the critically acclaimed actress began wowing as the illustrious, career-driven Peggy Olsen on AMC’s Mad Men (a role that has earned her several Emmy nominations) the brunet beauty got her kicks on NBC’s political drama The West Wing and starred alongside Angelina Jolie in Girl, Interrupted.

As the world gears up for the 1960s period drama’s swan song (let’s not discuss our anticipated severity of Don Draper withdrawal), the laid-back actress is quickly moving beyond her famed Mad Men persona. Following her success in the New Zealand-based miniseries Top of the Lake, Moss recently starred in the quirky comedy The One I Love with Safety Not Guaranteed cutie Mark Duplass, and is currently filming the action flick High-Rise, with Sienna Miller and Tom Hiddleston, which set to hit theaters in 2015.

See the transformation of the beloved actress, from bright-eyed teen to red-carpet beauty.
