Now grown up, Shipka is bewitching audiences as the lead character of Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Before Mad Men ended, she played Cathy Dollanganger in the 2014 adaptation of the controversial novel Flowers in the Attic, where at the age of fourteen she played a character stuck in the attic of a large house for years, with plenty of other problems as well.
Shipka has also lent her voice to a number of animated projects, such as The Legend of Korra, Sofia the First, and Avengers Academy, where she portrayed Spider-Woman. Mad Men was a big break-out role for this young actress, who did mostly commercials and small, uncredited roles.
Rich Sommer Now
Since Mad Men went off the air, Sommer has been prolific in all sorts of ways. He's appeared in dozens of television series, including Love, Glow, and In the Dark. He's added his voice to plenty of shows, including Elena of Avalor, Close Enough, Adam Ruins Everything, and Regular Show.
He's even appeared in a few video games, such as Half-Life: Alyx, and anime such as Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;Surrection. Yes, the name is dumb, but I hear it's good. Overall, however, Sommer's favorite project is the podcast he hosts, CARDBOARD!, which is all about board games.
Kiernan Shipka as Sally Draper
Though little more than background dressing in the first two seasons, Sally becomes one of the main characters from then on. Little Sally has never had an easy life, being neglected by her father and hated by her mother because Betty can't rely on Don for help. She then becomes a miserable teenager who fights her mother at every turn. As she watches her parents’ marriage end, she starts to spin out of control.
Finally, she moves back in with her dying mother to take care of her and her younger siblings. She became known for her armor-piercing questions, as well as her armor-piercing eyes.
Vincent Kartheiser as Pete Campbell
Campbell came from a family who used to own half of Upper Manhattan, and he still thinks he's worth that much. He tries and tries to exude the cool and calm persona that Don Draper has, but can’t quite keep up. However, he ends the series on a high note, hired by Learjet and managing to keep his marriage from dissolving.
He goes from a good character one week to a bad guy the next, Campbell has plenty depth, especially for someone from the era – he hates racism, thinks the agencies should market to African-Americans, and correctly predicted Kennedy would beat Nixon in the presidential race.
Vincent Kartheiser Now
Mad Men garnered Golden Globes, Emmys, and SAG Awards, but it was just another job for this young veteran actor. Kartheiser has been acting since he was a teen, alongside Marisa Tomei in Untamed Heart. Since Mad Men ended, he's been in Saints & Strangers, Casual, Genius, The Path, Proven Innocent, and even cult hit The OA.
As far as movies go, he's shown up in Crypto, Most Likely to Murder, My Friend Dahmer, A Kind of Murder, and has recently added his talents to the popular documentary The Social Dilemma. He also has a lead role on the Das Boot TV series.
