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. I still laugh at that scene.
From stripping down to smoking up, Mad Men‘s Peggy Olson has proven herself capable of the unexpected. AMC asked actress Elisabeth Moss to share her insights on some of the character’s most memorable moments. Find out what makes these scenes special and watch clips of some of the moments themselves.
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.
Mad Men returned on Sunday night with a bang, as viewers caught up with Don, Megan and the rest of the gang. If you missed the excitement, amc.com is now streaming the full Season 7 Premiere, “Time Zones,” online. This is the ONLY episode being made available without a log-in requirement. Future episodes of Mad Men will be available on amc.com the day after broadcast and accessible via log-in for select cable providers.
Mad Men‘s Season 6 was filled with moments that made fans gasp, guffaw and take to tweeting. AMC asked Series Creator Matthew Weiner to share the inspiration that led to five of those buzzed-about moments. Herewith, the stories behind Betty’s dye job, Pete’s misstep, Ken’s footwork, Peggy’s breakup, and the line that said it all (along with clips of the moments themselves)…
Betty Dyeing Her Hair – Episode 1, “The Doorway”
“That’s a story from my childhood. My mother was actually a brunette who dyed her hair white blonde when I was a little boy and it was in style. She came in from the hairdresser and I was horrified. And I realized as an adult how painful it must have been for her that I reacted that way.”
