Should it come as any surprise, then, that the adorable tween could go off the deep end in the new season of AMC's "Mad Men," which premieres Sunday? "There will be some shocking moments with Sally," said 10-year-old Kiernan Shipka, who originated the character and nurtured her along to full-time cast status this season.

The critically acclaimed show, with Benedict Cumberbatch as the title detective, returns to PBS on Sunday. The new season picks up two years after the last one left off, with Holmes having faked his own death by supposedly leaping from St. Bartholomew's Hospital.
