Kiernan Shipka on What Mad Men Season 6 Might Hold, Playing Sally Draper — Exclusive
What’s in store for everyone’s favorite ‘60s tween when Mad Men Season 6 starts up again? Wetpaint Entertainment spoke to actress Kiernan Shipka at the Young Hollywood Awards in Los Angeles, CA on Thursday, June 14, to talk about Sally’s big story arc in Season 5 and what she thinks Sally might be up to next season.
Wetpaint Entertainment: Congrats on your arc this season. How did you feel about Sally’s storylines? I was super excited. I was so happy and I think it was a really cool season for Sally – she go to do some fun things. She had a great arc. It’s just surreal to be on such a good show and to work for Matt Weiner and the fact that he gave me some good storylines.
Do you relate to her journey of becoming an adult? Yeah. I mean, she lives in the 60s and I live here, and her parents are divorced and she has siblings, and my parents are together and I’m an only child, so I think those are things that play a big part in your life. And those things we don’t have in common. But I think just the normal growing up issues of Sally and, like, the, “What I am going to wear?” type of things. Those I relate to.
Do you hope for more romance in Sally’s life? Sure! I don’t know what she’s going to do in further seasons, but I know it’s going to be something crazy.
