Biography

American actress Peyton List -- not to be confused with younger child actress Peyton R. List -- first came to prominance as Lucy Montgomery on the popular soap As the World Turns (2001-2005). After her run on that series, she portrayed Sarah Wallis, the paramour of golfer Francis Ouimet (Shia LaBeouf), in Bill Paxon's rousing 2005 biopic The Greatest Game Ever Played. List also continued to work in television, taking many a guest role in such programs as Smallville, Without a Trace, and One Tree Hill, as well as multiple-episode parts on the short-lived series Windfall and Day Break. In 2007, List landed regular billing on the drama Big Shots, a kind of male Sex and the City about the friendships among a group of businessmen; the actress played Cameron, the daughter of CEO Duncan Collinsworth (Dylan McDermott). However, it was another small-screen project that led to her biggest exposure to that point. In 2009 she was cast as Jane Siegel, one of the new secretaries at the advertising firm in Mad Men who would go on to marry one of the senior partners. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
