Caught again buying healthy food!

The paps have once again caught Kiernan out and about shopping for fruits and veggies in Santa Monica! Not sure why they are so obsessed with where she buys her carrots but check out that adorable red floral dress! Not sure where she got it but its cute as hell and I’m curious as to whether or not they sell it in blue!

 

Kiernan out and about at the farmers market (plus website news)

It seems like the paps really can’t get enough of Kiernan going grocery shopping. Once again they found her buying produce at a local farmers market. Wearing some cute starred Madewell jeans, Chloe boots and an Indiana Jones-esque hat, she picked up fruits and veggies.

Onward to website news. As you can now see we got us a new official domain! Yay! With that there are many links from our newsfeed that no longer link you to the gallery. Don’t freak! I will be working on fixing this ASAP!

Have a safe weekend everyone!

Kiernan to have a part in ‘Lapham Rising’

Just as we were worrying about seeing our little fashinista in more than just The Silence which is slated to start filming this fall, deadline dropped this amazing bomb on us all!

Kiernan Shipka, Candice Bergen, Kathryn Erbe & Jared Gilman Join Frank Langella In ‘Lapham Rising’

Deadline

EXCLUSIVEKiernan ShipkaCandice BergenKathryn Erbe and Jared Gilmanhave joined Frank Langella in Lapham Rising, the Charlie Kessler-directed film adaptation of Roger Rosenblatt’s bestselling novel. Langella signed on after he completed his role as the Russian spy handler on the FX drama The Americans, and after winning his fourth Tony Award for Broadway’s The Father. Rosenblatt adapted his book and the pic will shoot in the Hamptons. BCDF Pictures (Bachelorette) and the Kerry Orent Company (Money Monster) are producing.

Lapham Rising tells the story of Harry March, a retired writer whose life starts to unravel when a multimillionaire begins building a mansion across from his quiet island home in the Hamptons. Up until now, he has lived peacefully with his talking dog, Hector, a born-again Evangelical and unapologetic capitalist. To Harry, the gargantuan mansion represents the fetid and corrupt excess that has ruined modern civilization. Which means, quite simply, that this is war. Kessler makes his directing debut on the film.

Shipka went from playing Don Draper’s daughter in Mad Men to Bette Davis’s daughter B.D. Hyman in FX’s Feud; Erbe starred in Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Oz, while Gilman’s breakout came in the Wes Anderson-directed Moonrise Kingdom. Langella is repped by ICM and Circle of Confusion, Shipka by CAA and Anonymous Content, Bergen by ICM Partners, Erbe by Innovative Artists and Industry Entertainment, and Gilman by ICM and Dmand Talent. Rosenblatt is repped by the Watkins/Loomis agency.

Wonderland Interview from the Summer 17′ Issue

KIERNAN SHIPKA

She’s learning from the greats.

“I don’t do that much karaoke and it’s really frustrating to me,” I can feel Kiernan Shipka’s pain from the other side of the Atlantic. At just 17, the actor is four years shy of being allowed into bars. If I was her, well, frustrated wouldn’t begin to cover it. “‘Last Dance’ by Donna Summers would probably be the most fun to do,” she imagines, “but I also feel like ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, I’d tell myself to do, then halfway through I’d be like, ‘This is the most difficult thing I’ve ever done in my life!’” She settles on Taylor Swift, one of “the modern classics”.

It’s hard to even believe the Mad Men star is 17. Joining the American period drama at just seven years old, picturing her in any other way than as the troubled pre-teen Sally Draper is near impossible. Shipka’s own childhood was the antithesis to her character’s, calling her coming-of-age on the show “loving and fun and casual” and her adolescence spent on set “an amazing environment… a special thing”.

Prior to the series, she grew up watching and practising musical theatre, evident in the way she enunciates every word over the phone, peppering our conversation with endearingly dramatic pauses and sudden exclamations of “Oh gosh!” She’s just seen Dear Evan Hansen when we speak—”just amazing”—and obsesses over a long list of more shows. “I mean, Wicked has a very special place in my heart,” she enthuses, ‘I’ve seen it six or seven times… The Lion King… All of them! I adore singing and I like dancing, so if I could do more of that combined with acting, that would be amazing.” Andrew Lloyd Webber, if you’re reading this, Shipka is waiting for the call.

Her latest hit show, Feud, is more similar to Mad Men than her beloved musicals; another period piece set in the 60s, this time based on the infamous rift between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. “I’ve seen What Ever Happened to Baby Jane a million years ago, and I knew briefly about the feud,” Shipka says of the notorious rivalry between the two screen sirens, who fought both personally and professionally over everything, from roles and awards to love interests. “Digging in and finding all of those amazing juicy details… It wasn’t just them feuding against each other, there were a lot of people pitting them against each other,” she explains. “That was eye opening.”

Shipka appears as B.D., the daughter of Bette Davis (played by the inimitable Susan Sarandon) who went on to publish a scathing, and largely unverified, exposé on her mother in later life. “I think that B.D. lived her life as Bette Davis’ daughter,” muses Shipka, “and was struggling to find her way as B.D.”

Shipka and her fictional mother had none of the aggressions of their real life counterparts, calling working with Sarandon “a dream come true”. “She was a partner in crime,” she continues, “a sparring partner in those more intense scenes.” The show’s other lead, living legend Jessica Lange, sent her into fan girl fits, “Just making eye contact, I was like, ‘My life is made. I’m done. I’m good!’”

Brainchild of Ryan Murphy—the cult show creator who Shipka calls “the crème de la crème, the most amazing director/human/person/brilliant mind ever”— Feud goes further than highlighting the destructive horrors of Hollywood’s cut-throat competition. With Murphy’s Half foundation, an initiative sparked to secure gender equality in off-screen film roles, 60 percent of the show – runner’s directing slots go to women, in contrast to the industry average of 17 percent. “[Murphy] shows that it’s possible,” enthuses Shipka. “He doesn’t just talk the talk, he walks the walk. That set was incredibly diverse with so many voices, and it made for a warm, well rounded, amazing vibe.”

Luckily, unlike Davis and Crawford the young actor hasn’t made any enemies of her own and she’s steered clear of scandal in any form. “Everything becomes everyone’s business,” she reasons of online media. “I literally post photos of my dog and food,” she snorts, “I’m not dating anyone… Owning myself and my feelings is the most empowering thing I can do… I keep it pretty low key but who knows what’s gonna happen? I’ll try to sneak into a karaoke bar and then get kicked out, that’s what’s going to destroy me!”

Since wrapping Feud (a second series is due, this time detailing the tumultuous relationship between Prince Charles and Diana), Shipka’s been stationed at home in Los Angeles, taking classes and hanging out with her dog. “I have a few things that might be lined up for later in the year, so we’ll see,” she says coyly. “The Blackcoat’s Daughter, a movie I did with Emma Roberts is out right now. That’s really exciting and fun, but besides that, I’m just waiting for the right thing.”

Having graduated high school (home school) at just 15 and already earning herself college credits alongside her astounding career, the teenager makes me feel like an underachiever. She’ll be 18 in September and meets my preemptive congratulations with, “Ugh! Don’t remind me!” College isn’t on the cards right now, but she’s educating herself through both literature and life in Los Angeles. “I love this city so much,” she effuses. “I’m really into food and art and culture. LA provides this giant landscape to explore all of that and the city and understand everyone living in it, it’s boundless. A beautiful experience.”

On her current path, by the time September and adulthood roll around, the leading-lady-in-waiting might just be ruling the land she loves so much.
