Kiernan Shipka (aka the adorably complicated Sally Draper) may be MIA from AMC’s “Mad Men,” not having appeared in the past few episodes (much to the chagrin of some people) but she’ll turn up Wednesday (April 25) evening on ABC’s “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23.”
The 12-year-old actress plays herself in the episode opposite show co-star James Van Der Beek, who also plays himself.
“That was a really great experience for me,” Shipka tells Huffington Post of her “Apt. 23” stint. “I mean, it was such a different environment. First of all, I’m used to ‘Mad Men,’ where you have to get every word exactly correct for everything, and it has to be very true to the script. In this, they were all, ‘Try saying this this time,’ and ‘Improv a little bit.’ It was awesome. It was such a different experience, but it was so cool.”
Well done, Kiernan — but do us all a favor and come back to “Mad Men” soon. And, while you’re at it — bring your mom, stepdad and brothers.
