User Reviews. User Ratings. Season 4 has Roger less involved with the day-to-day activities at SCDP than he was at Sterling Cooper.
His primary function is to manage the Lucky Strike account, which is responsible for over half of SCDP's billings. However, in the episode "Chinese Wall", it's revealed that Lucky Strike is moving its account to a rival agency, forcing a dramatic downsizing of the firm.
During Season 5, however, Roger is given new accounts to handle. He refocuses his efforts and lands a big account with Chevrolet Motor Company.
He offers to financially support his son, but Joan does not believe he is reliable. By the end of the sixth season, however, Joan agrees to let him into Kevin's life but not hers.
At the close of the series, Roger indicates to Joan that half his estate will go to Kevin in his will. Roger eventually marries Megan Draper's mother, Marie, and their honeymoon in Paris is part of the final montage in the series.
Kenneth "Ken" Cosgrove Aaron Staton : A young account executive originally from Vermont. Outside the office, Ken is an aspiring author who had a short story published in The Atlantic , which is a source of some envy by his co-workers, particularly the competitive Paul Kinsey and jealous Pete Campbell.
According to his bio in The Atlantic , Ken attended Columbia University. He has one admirer, art director Salvatore "Sal" Romano, who secretly has a crush on him.
Later on, the more easy-going Ken is promoted over the more ambitious Campbell to Senior Vice President of Account Services. However, at the end of Season 3, Draper and Sterling choose Pete over Ken for their new agency.
When Pete learns of Ken's return, he is initially upset with Lane Pryce for not telling him, since Pryce had authorized Ken's previous promotion over Pete.
However, when Ken agrees to serve under Pete as accounts manager at SCDP, the two reconcile over lunch and Pete comes to realize that Ken is a practical choice to help bring new business to the firm.
In Season 5 it is discovered that Ken secretly writes science fiction short stories. In Season 6, he is wounded in the eye during a hunting accident with SCDP clients, Chevrolet.
However, he assumes his father-in-law's position at Dow Chemical and thus becomes a client for the remainder of the series run.
Harold "Harry" Crane Rich Sommer : A bespectacled media buyer and head of Sterling Cooper's television department, which is created at Harry's initiative.
Unlike his mostly Ivy League fellows, Harry went to the University of Wisconsin. Harry joins his colleagues in drinking and flirtations, though he is a dedicated husband and father.
However, he does have a drunken one-night stand with Pete's secretary in Season 1, which leads to a brief separation from his wife Jennifer.
Although he is well-meaning, Harry has a tendency to make poor decisions and avoid confrontations, which contributes to the dismissal of Sal Romano in Season 3.
He is ultimately coerced by Draper and Cooper into joining Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, although he comes to the realization that it is the right move on his own.
When Sterling Cooper was in the process of being sold, Harry mistakenly thinks they are considering opening a West Coast office and believes that he would be the person to move to California.
Harry later becomes a bit of a braggart , who is overly fond of discussing his Hollywood connections.
In Season 5 he has abandoned his faithfulness to his wife as he discusses having affairs while abroad on business and is easily seduced by Paul's Hare Krishna girlfriend Lakshmi in his office.
He also becomes increasingly image-conscious and petty, culminating in Season 6 when he explodes at Joan after she fires his secretary Scarlet for falsifying her time card , venting his frustration over her being made partner when he was not.
He also propositions Megan Draper in exchange for helping promote her acting career, but is rejected. Paul Kinsey Michael Gladis ; regular Seasons 1—3, guest star Season 5: A creative copywriter and Princeton University alumnus, the bearded, pipe-smoking Paul prides himself on his politically liberal views.
Some time before the series began he had a relationship with Joan Holloway which ended badly, largely because Paul talked about it too much. Paul tried, unsuccessfully, to date Peggy soon after she was hired by Sterling Cooper.
They break up while in Oxford, Mississippi , where they had gone as Freedom Riders to oppose segregation in the South. He is highly competitive, an attribute revealed to have soured a few friendships while he was in college, and which causes friction with Peggy, who quickly proves to be a superior copywriter to him.
He is furious upon discovering that Don chose Peggy for the new agency over him. Paul did not appear after the third season finale until he reappeared in the tenth episode of Season 5, revealing himself to Harry as a disciple of Krishna Consciousness.
Paul asks Harry to look at a Star Trek script he wrote, which Harry thinks is awful. Harry later realizes that Paul's girlfriend is manipulating him because of his recruiting skills within the Krishna movement, and encourages Paul to follow his dreams.
Salvatore "Sal" Romano Bryan Batt ; regular Seasons 1—3: The Italian-American former art director at Sterling Cooper.
Sal is a closeted homosexual. Reluctant to act upon his homosexuality, he twice avoids sexual encounters with men.
By , Sal has married Kitty, who seems unaware of Sal's sexual orientation, yet begins to realize that something is amiss in their relationship.
Sal's secret crush on Ken Cosgrove comes uncomfortably and awkwardly close to being revealed during a dinner in Sal's apartment. Don, who was in the midst of a heterosexual encounter of his own at the same hotel, finesses this uncomfortable situation through a coded conversation about their current client, London Fog.
He suggests the tagline "Limit your exposure". Later in Season 3, Sal rebuffs the sexual advances of Lee Garner Jr. In a conversation right after the firing, Don explains the agency cannot risk losing Lucky Strike and implies Sal should have gone along with Garner Jr.
On the phone, Sal explains to Kitty he will be working late that night. Sal never appears again in the series. Bertram "Bert" Cooper Robert Morse ; recurring Seasons 1—2, regular Seasons 3—7: The somewhat eccentric senior partner at Sterling Cooper.
He leaves the day-to-day running of the firm to Sterling and Draper but is keenly aware of the firm's operations. Bertram is a Republican. He is fascinated by Japanese culture , requiring everybody, including clients, to remove their shoes before walking into his office, which is decorated with Japanese art.
He is also a fan of the writings of Ayn Rand. Among his eccentricities, Bert frequently walks through the offices in his socks and intensely dislikes gum-chewing and smoking, an oddity for the time, especially considering Lucky Strike cigarettes is a major client through Season 4.
He owns a ranch in Montana and is a widower with no children. Don approaches him about buying back the agency at the end of the third season, which evolves into their forming the new Sterling Cooper firm.
In Season 4, Roger Sterling, being a WWII veteran of the Pacific theater, is outraged at the possibility of taking on a Japanese client, Honda.
In a heated office meeting with some of the other executives including Peter Campbell, who had the lead, Roger says to Bert, "Why don't we just get Dr.
Lyle Levins in here? Lyle Levins? Later in Season 4, in the episode " Blowing Smoke ", when the agency is forced to radically downsize its staff following the loss of the Lucky Strike account, Bert tells the others that he is quitting the business.
He is not seen for the rest of the season but is back at work at the beginning of Season 5, although without an office.
In Episode 10, Pete refers to the men's room as "Cooper's office. By the sixth season, Bert is increasingly frustrated with Don's erratic behavior and joins the other partners in placing him on a leave of absence.
During the seventh season, he agrees to let Don return under an agreed set of stipulations. He dies while watching the Apollo 11 moon landing on television.
He appears to Don in two dream sequences following his death. Sally Beth Draper Kiernan Shipka ; recurring Seasons 1—3, regular Seasons 4—7: The eldest child of Don and Betty Draper; her relationship with her mother is often strained.
Sally is a minor character through the first two seasons but assumes a larger role during the third season as she approaches adolescence.
She forms a strong bond with her grandfather, Gene Hofstadt, when he comes to live with the Drapers and is devastated by his sudden death.
She also becomes distraught when Don and Betty break the news that they are getting a divorce, reproaching her father for breaking his promise to always be there and accusing her mother of making him leave.
She develops a friendship with Glen, a boy who lives down the street from her and of whom her mother does not approve. Betty is extremely jealous of this relationship and seeks to sabotage it, deciding to move the family to Rye, New York and firing Carla, the housekeeper, when she lets Glen in the house to say goodbye to Sally.
In Season 5, Sally is shown to continue her friendship with Glen through phone calls and secret meetings. When Don marries Megan Calvet, Sally establishes a mostly positive relationship with Megan.
During the sixth season, Sally is accepted to Miss Porter's School but gets suspended after being caught buying alcohol with a fake ID.
In the final season, Sally's disillusion with both of her parents is evident but changes upon the news of Betty's cancer diagnosis. She is initially cool towards Don Draper, who bristles at her assertive, independent image but they warm to each other and eventually begin an affair.
In the course of their affair, Don tells her things he has not shared with Midge Daniels his previous mistress or his wife.
When Don is blackmailed by Pete Campbell, he comes to Rachel with the suggestion that they run away together to Los Angeles.
She reminds him of his duty to his children and questions whether he would want to abandon his children after having grown up without a father.
When Don persists, Rachel comes to the realization that he didn't want to run away with her, he simply wanted to run away. Ironically, her calling him a coward and urging him to think more clearly inspires him to persuade Pete to stand down.
The relationship seems to collapse from that point on, and Cooper complains to Don about how upset he has made her.
Don and Rachel end the affair at some point between the first and second seasons. He encounters her again in Season 2 while out to eat with Bobbie Barrett, finding out that Rachel has moved on and married a man named Tilden Katz.
Though it appears that Don is only momentarily shaken by the news of her marriage, several episodes later, after drinking heavily with Roger and Freddie Rumsen, he gives his name as "Tilden Katz" to the bouncer of an underground club Roger is trying to get them into.
In Season 7, Don sees Rachel in a vision while auditioning actresses for a fur commercial, but when he attempts to contact her, he learns that Rachel had two children and that she died from leukemia.
Lane Pryce Jared Harris ; recurring Season 3, regular Seasons 4—5: The English financial officer installed by Sterling Cooper's new British parent company.
He first appears in the first episode of Season 3. His role is that of a strict taskmaster who brings spending under control, in particular by cutting out frivolous expenses.
His efforts are so successful, he is to be sent to India to enact cost-cutting measures, a move which Pryce is not looking forward to after having settled in with his wife and child in New York.
An unfortunate accident at work handicaps his replacement, thus allowing Pryce to keep his current position.
He warms to American culture, and foresees some form of cultural and societal changes in American race relations. When the British parent company is sold at the end of Season 3, Pryce realizes he has become expendable and negotiates to become a founding partner in the new agency that Don Draper, Bert Cooper and Roger Sterling want to form.
At Draper's suggestion, Pryce frees Sterling, Cooper, and Draper from their contractual non-compete clauses by firing them, then is fired himself, enabling the four of them to start their own firm.
When hard times hit SCDP after Lucky Strike, their largest client, leaves them in Season 4, Pryce liquidates his portfolio in order to pay his share of the cash infusion required by the bank as collateral for a loan that keeps SCDP afloat.
His finances already tight, he faces a crisis when the British Inland Revenue demand immediate payment of back taxes on the gain from the sale of his portfolio in Season 5.
In anticipation of the bonus, Pryce forges Draper's signature on an early bonus check to himself, and views it as a day loan which will be made good once the bonuses are paid.
However, the partners decide to forgo their bonuses despite Pryce's pleading. In the penultimate episode of Season 5, Cooper discovers the cancelled check and confronts Draper, who in turn confronts Pryce, demanding his resignation.
That weekend, Pryce types out a resignation letter and hangs himself in his office. Initially Megan is a receptionist at SCDP, but following the death of Miss Blankenship, she takes over as Don Draper's secretary.
In the Season 4 finale, Don takes Megan on a trip to California to take care of his kids. In spite of being involved with Faye Miller, a marketing research consultant who works with SCDP, he proposes marriage to Megan and she accepts.
In the episode " Lady Lazarus ," she leaves the firm to pursue her dream of acting, and with the help of Don lands her first acting gig in one of SCDP's commercials by the Season 5 finale.
Don seems to be more honest with Megan than he was with Betty, apparently telling Megan about his true identity between Seasons 4 and 5.
At the same time, he retains some of those possessive qualities he displayed during his previous marriage, although Megan is more stubborn and combative than Betty.
Megan relocates permanently to California to pursue her acting career and she and Don divorce during Season 7.
Megan is originally from Montreal , and French is her first language. Stan Rizzo Jay R. Ferguson ; recurring Season 4, regular Seasons 5—7: The art director at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.
Before coming to the company, he worked for Lyndon B. Johnson 's Presidential campaign. He and Peggy are often at odds with each other due to his abrasive attitude, although the two later develop a strong working relationship after Peggy challenges Stan over working in the nude for a campaign, which Stan gruffly concedes to her.
Stan is one of the few members of the SCDP creative department who survives the staff cuts. He makes the transition to McCann Erickson in Season 7 and tells Peggy of his love for her at the conclusion of the series, which Peggy reciprocates.
Henry Francis Christopher Stanley ; recurring Seasons 3—4, regular Seasons 5—7: A political adviser with close connections to New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and the Republican Party, it is later revealed that he serves as the Director of Public Relations and Research in the Governor's Office.
He is instantly infatuated with the six-months-pregnant Betty Draper when he meets her at the Sterlings' Kentucky Derby party as she is waiting by the women's restroom.
Later, he is called upon by Betty Draper and some of her friends to use his influence to save a local reservoir, and he and Betty develop a personal connection.
Betty reciprocates Henry's attention because she increasingly feels no connection with Don due to his non-stop infidelities, lies over his true identity, and his dismissive and sometimes verbally abusive attitude towards her.
After the death of Betty's beloved father, the much older Henry also serves as a replacement father-figure for her. Henry and Betty have only a few brief and furtive meetings before Henry proposes marriage in the wake of the Kennedy assassination.
Season 3 ends with the two of them on a plane with baby Gene, presumably flying to Reno so Betty can obtain a quick divorce from Don. At the start of Season 4, we see that Henry and Betty have married and Henry has rather uncomfortably taken up residence in the Drapers' house, living with Betty and her three children and paying rent to Don.
He tries to soothe Betty as she continues to react angrily to Don and his irresponsibility towards the children, but gets more fed up over time.
Betty, on her part, feels unaccepted by Henry's family, especially when she is unable to control Sally during a family visit to Henry's mother's house.
At the end of Season 4, they decide to move to Rye, NY. Their relationship during Season 5 seems to be more affectionate, though Henry still periodically loses his temper with Betty.
The news of Betty's cancer in Season 7 devastates him and despite her desire to keep the illness from the children, Henry informs Sally of her mother's condition.
Ted Chaough Kevin Rahm ; recurring Seasons 4—5, regular Seasons 6—7: A self-proclaimed rival of Don Draper in the advertising world, his agency—Cutler Gleason and Chaough CGC —was in competition with SCDP for an account with Honda.
Don tricked Ted into making an expensive presentation to Honda executives, which backfired on Ted as he violated Honda's presentation rules no finished work or commercials allowed at the presentation.
Though the two agencies are comparable in size, he seems obsessed with competing against Don. Ted also tried to woo Pete Campbell over to his agency.
After Don writes his New York Times ad about dropping business with cigarette companies, Ted makes a prank call to Don pretending to be Robert F.
When he returns in Season 5 to recruit Peggy to leave SCDP and join his advertising firm, he remains very confident but is much less obnoxious than in his previous appearances; he does not indulge his typical dislike and jealousy of Don to Peggy, and that helps her decide to accept his offer, which in the season finale has him assigning her a huge amount of material involving an account for cigarettes aimed at female consumers.
During Season 6, Ted and Don impulsively decide to merge their smaller firms so as to compete with the larger ones; however, this leads to numerous small struggles for power between them.
He returns in Season 7 after the McCann purchase and settles into the culture of the firm. Michael Ginsberg Ben Feldman ; recurring Season 5, regular Seasons 6—7: First appearing in the episode "Tea Leaves" Season 5, Episode 3 , Michael is hired as a part-time copywriter by Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.
He is initially hired to service the Mohawk account, and proves himself to be both prolific and innovative.
He quickly becomes an essential part of the creative team and surpasses Peggy Olson midway through the season as the firm's most productive writer, while Peggy becomes mired in the Heinz story arc.
Ginsberg is an idiosyncratic, socially awkward character who tends to speak his mind, which can be both a help and hindrance to him.
Indeed, his position at the firm is threatened at times, including at his interview, when Peggy decides not to employ him for fear of his being too extroverted for Don's tastes.
However, this decision is reversed by Roger, who has already told Mohawk that they have taken him on. As the firm's only Jewish copywriter, Roger uses this to his advantage to help Jewish clients, like Manischewitz.
His role at SCDP becomes more integral after Peggy leaves the agency, though he commands almost none of the respect and support from Don that she did.
His paranoia about the newly installed computer in the office drives him insane , eventually cutting off his own nipple as a gift to Peggy; he is then taken to a psychiatric hospital.
Robert "Bobby" Draper Mason Vale Cotton; previously Maxwell Huckabee, Aaron Hart, and Jared Gilmore recurring Seasons 1—5; regular Seasons 6—7: The middle child of Don and Betty Draper.
He was referred to by his mother Betty as a "little liar. Despite not having many story lines during the series, Bobby is shown to be affected by his parents' divorce but grows fond of Don's and Betty's new spouses, Megan and Henry, respectively.
In Season 6, he expresses sympathy towards Black people just after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. By Season 7, Bobby grows troubled over the increased arguments between Betty and Henry.

This theme is explored most candidly through Don Draper's identity fraud during the Korean War , in which he takes on an officer's name to desert the army.
