Sally Draper, Yale Class of '22?

It's Sally Draper! Eleven-year-old Kiernan Shipka, who plays the troubled daughter of Jon Hamm's Don Draper in AMC's "Mad Men," is here to talk about "Smooch," a Hallmark Channel where she'll be starring opposite former child actress Kellie Martin. "The first thing I said to her is that she has to go to Yale, and she agreed," Martin said when asked what advice she'd given her young co-star. Not that Shipka seems in need of advice. Asked if "Smooch" had been a more relaxing experience than "Mad Men," she replied, "Nothing in acting is actually that stressful for me, because I love it. It's my passion!" As for "Mad Men," "I'm not allowed to watch the show. I just more focus on the Sally parts."
