“The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Star Kiernan Shipka for ES Magazine

Posted on October 22, 2018

“The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” star Kiernan Shipka covers the latest issue of ES Magazine photographed by Arianna Lago and styled by Sophie van der Welle.


On her admiration and learning from Mad Men’s Jon Hamm: “He set such a good tone on set [she recalls]. He was always so nice, so grounded, so fun. He managed to command the ship and make the energy light and funny, but also completely serious and respectful when the scene called for it. I really admire him for that”

On Netflix’s support of her new teen horror show, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: “Netflix has been really frickin’ supportive and awesome,’ [Shipka beams]. And it’s global — this show hasn’t even come out yet and I’m seeing Instagram fan pages from all different countries. There is the odd, ‘Oh my God, this is so crazy’ moment, but everything has been so incredibly positive and the energy on set is so good, the pressure really just adds to the excitement.”

On the #MeToo movement and the future of Hollywood: “I feel so hopeful about the future of Hollywood right now. There are some incredible voices out there standing up for what’s right and I am incredibly grateful to them and that it is happening now, because it makes me feel so much better about going forward in my career.”

On the importance of preserving her privacy in the spotlight: “Privacy is a big deal to me,’ [she responds seriously] [her romantic life is not up for discussion]. It’s easy to feel like you have to share everything, but you don’t. If you’re not really careful it can become toxic. I am a big believer in protecting yourself from the comparison trap. I like to keep my private life private, and that’s not to say I don’t enjoy Instagram, I do.”
