Quotable: Sally Draper Not Allowed To Watch “Mad Men”

“I’m not allowed to watch the show. My mom will tape it and then show me the scenes she feels are appropriate. […] I’m very method when I’m on set. It’s just kind of thinking the thoughts of Sally, and I pretty much just become her. It’s a character that I’ve known for a really long time, so it’s pretty easy. […] I don’t think she’s a bad kid at all. She’s going through a rough time. Don is absent and Betty has never once catered to Sally’s emotional needs, so I feel that they’re not the best parents.”

— Kiernan Shipka, the precocious young actress who plays Sally Draper, Betty and Don’s oldest child, on “Mad Men,” explains how she channels and connects to her character despite not being allowed to watch much of the show. Of Sally’s recent acting out, Kiernan also teases: “Believe it or not, there’s a lot more coming. You’re just gonna have to wait and see what it is.” Can’t wait! [via Huffington Post]
