AMC have been giving us some brilliant shows in recent years, with one of the best of them having to be Mad Men. Mad Men has recently completed its sixth season and we have been given plenty of interesting stories of the years. Elisabeth Moss plays Peggy in Mad Men and she has opened up about Peggy's relationship with Don Draper.
Moss told Vulture, "I think she loves him. He's family. And she already knows some pretty harsh things. He's thrown money at her! He's done things to her that are far worse than what she would find out about his past. Throwing money at her face, giving accounts away, threatening to tell the client that she's having an affair with her married boss, and then giving away credit for her creative idea - that's far worse than anything he could ever [reveal]. You know how important that is to Peggy."
She added, "There's nothing more important than ownership over her creative ideas because that's all she has as a woman in that workplace. All she has are her ideas, and he takes that away from her. That's why she calls him a monster. But that doesn't mean that there isn't still love there. I will say this about their relationship: It's very special and it's very common in the sense that it's very familial between the two of them."
Elisabeth continued, "It's like brother/sister, father/daughter, best friends, boss/employee. It's everything but romantic. You love your father even if you hate him sometimes. You'll call your brother a monster, but there's love there that will never change. Frankly, finding out about his past, I don't know if that's something that would break the bank."
As well as starring Elisabeth Moss as Peggy and Jon Hamm as Don Draper, Mad Men also stars Vincent Kartheiser as Pete Campbell, January Jones as Betty Draper and Christina Hendricks as Joan Harris. Mad Men will no doubt air a seventh season early next year, which will show on AMC in the US and Sky Atlantic in the UK.
