Biography

Even at a young age, Kiernan Shipka displayed such an undeniable ease and charm in front of the camera that when she decided to become an actress, it only seemed a natural fit. After receiving her start as a print model, Shipka landed guest parts on popular shows like the action-comedy "Monk" (USA Network, 2002-09), the sketch comedy "MADtv" (Fox, 1995-2009), and the sci-fi drama "Heroes" (NBC, 2006-10). But it was her role on the provocative AMC drama series "Mad Men" (2007- ) that made Shipka a household name. As the oldest daughter of the series' lead character, Don Draper, Shipka's character often went through the wringer as a result of her parents' troubled marriage and her father's shady past. The role clearly gave Shipka the opportunity to display an emotional range that was well beyond her years, making Hollywood sit up and take notice of her rising star potential.
