Sally Draper (Kiernan Shipka), Mad Men
Once just the cute ballerina doing pliés in the Draper living room, Sally has grown up before our eyes to become one of Mad Men's most important characters. Whether losing her grandfather or adjusting to her parents' divorce, Sally balances her sadness with maturity and poise, despite being parented by the television. Though she's not immune to acting out (running away to the city, "touching herself" at a sleepover), Sally no longer belongs at the kids' table. And, hey, she makes a mean cocktail!
