As Sally Draper, the daughter of Jon Hamm’s charismatic and ever more unhinged ad man on Mad Men, Kiernan Shipka spent almost a decade growing up on-screen. Now 17, she’s become known for her characteristically exciting red carpet looks – think Dior Haute Couture, Miu Miu and Valentino. Her next act is appearing in TV series Feud: helmed by American Horror Story director Ryan Murphy, it chronicles the rivalry between Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, and sees Shipka acting alongside the brilliant Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon.

New interview with Kiernan!

 

“That vibe that she might be possessed intrigued me,” Shipka says. It was also fun to “try to find little nuances that are creepy and a little off, but you don’t want them to be too crazy, because it’s a very (grounded) movie.”

“In Mad Men, I have a ton of favorite costumes,” Shipka tells USA TODAY. Looking back on Season 5, “I think that go-go boot moment with Sally was such a shocker and so fun.” (Don certainly didn’t think so — he made her change out of them immediately.)

New interview with Kiernan!

It was great to see your name included when Feud’s cast was announced. How did you and Ryan Murphy become acquainted?


I auditioned for the show and then I got a call that said they wanted me. I was kind of flabbergasted. Oh, I haven’t used that word in a long time. Flabbergasted. [Laughs.] To be quite honest, when I got the script and saw the people who were involved with the show, I didn’t want to hype myself up because I didn’t want to get too excited. I wanted to just talk myself out of it, like, Oh, this isn’t going to happen. Just go out there and do your best job in your audition. But then a few days later, I get a call with the offer and was pretty shocked and so excited. It wasn’t some long process that I got myself super nervous over, so in a way it was even more of a shock.

Feud’s premise has piqued a lot of interest. Despite the series being set a half-century ago, it tells the very relevant story of the hardships women face in the entertainment industry.



Completely. I think Ryan and everyone involved in the making of the show shines such a light on how Hollywood has always pitted women against each other. Like you said, it’s extraordinarily and very unfortunately relevant. To be a part of a show that I felt was making a statement, and a really important one at that, was really cool because I’m such a fan of it from the outside too.
