"Mad Men" will take its final bow on Sunday (May 17), and nothing can prepare us for the Sally Draper-sized hole in our heart we're going to feel when it's all over. (Were you actually expecting a happy ending? That's cute.)
For nearly eight years, we've watched as Don and Betty's oldest child navigated life's hardships -- struggling with her parents' divorce, the death of her grandfather, growing up in the tumultuous '60s -- without the guidance of her aloof parents. In fact, Sally Draper is proof that the struggles of a teen, especially a teen girl, can be just as dark and complex as those of an adult.
Actress Kiernan Shipka, now 15, booked the role of Sally Draper on AMC's "Mad Men" at the tender age of six. So in honor of our favorite Draper, we're looking back at Shipka's incredible evolution from a TV child star to a perpetually poised young woman who's about to take Hollywood by storm.
First things first, she was born to be a star.
Here's baby Shipka with her onscreen pops Jon Hamm.
Sally and Betty haven't had the closest mother-daughter relationship, but baby Shipka looks pretty happy with January Jones in this BTS photo.
She's been a show-stopper since day one.
So gosh darn CUTE.
She found her signature pose by age 11.
And WORKED it.
At 12, her transformation into Emma Watson began.
Still so cute.
Her style game is so on point.
Emma Watson... is that you? Be honest.
Looking ***flawless on the red carpet.
Eyebrows on fleek.
Everything on fleek.
Thirteen and still working that signature pose.
How can one human be so perfect?
The ultimate #squadgoals.
Fifteen and fabulous.
Her style is a little bolder.
But she's still our favorite Draper.
We're going to miss you, Sally. Thanks for being the most awesome teen on TV.
And Shipka, we can't wait to see what you do next.
