mm-s7-kiernan-moments-325 Throughout Mad Men‘s seven seasons, Sally Draper has grown from a little girl playing space invaders into a rebellious, rule-breaking teenager. AMC asked actress Kiernan Shipka to share her thoughts on some of her character’s most memorable moments. Find out what makes these scenes special to Kiernan and watch clips of some of the moments themselves.

Sally Playing in the Dry Cleaning Bag - Season 1, Episode 2, “Ladies Room

That was my first day on set, so that’s my first ever memory of Mad Men, of being on set and working with people on that set. So that’s personally what sticks out to me the most, and also it’s hysterical that Betty is more worried about her clothing being on the floor than her daughter having a plastic bag over her head.

Basket of Kisses - Season 1, Episode 6, “Babylon

That was the first inkling that I had that my character was going to be something more than a secretary. It really was. It was the first time I was like, “Oh, I have a story. This is cool.” I’ve loved working with Freddie Rumsen, who is played by Joel Murray, and I’ve always had a special relationship with him. It felt like the beginning of something and I was very aware of it.
