Kiernan Shipka from Mad Men interviewed at Mad Men Season 4 Premiere in Hollywood

Lil' Cutie, huh?

I interviewed delightful cherub and child actor Kiernan Shipka on the red carpet at the Mad Men Season Four premiere event in Hollywood, California on July 20, 2010.

Let’s be clear. Kiernan is not only a fantastic actor but this video proves she is more mature and well-spoken than most adults I know. I couldn’t help but recall that Dakota Fanning sketch that Amy Poehler used to do on SNL (“I’m not familiar.”).

And I can’t look at her picture and not feel sad that she has to take so much abuse from her awful mother Betty Draper. But then after a couple seconds I remember that Mad Men is, in fact, not real and I feel much, much better.

Let’s move on. Take it away, Kiernan…

Don’t you feel sorry for her that she has to put up with jerks like me who try to get story details out of a defenseless child? She totally held her ground and rocked that rebuttal speech that the Network Gestapo (as they’re known here in the ‘Wood) coached her on. I wonder if they threatened to take away her Barbies if she told.

Just kidding. They threatened to take away her SAG award.
