Jon Hamm imagines a "Mad Men" spinoff with Sally Draper

"Mad Men" came to an end on Sunday night, but Jon Hamm sees a way the show's world could continue through his on-screen daughter.

The man who played Don Draper was asked at the Television Academy's "Farewell to 'Mad Men'" event which character's story he'd like to see continue -- and he didn't pick Don, or Peggy, or Joan.

"I think a big part of what I really appreciate about this show is that, when people are crying when they watched [Sunday's] episode, is that the story is complete," Hamm said, according to Entertainment Weekly. "So I think the idea of a spinoff, or a prequel, or an origin story, or whatever longer time to spend with these characters, I think it would be less fulfilling somehow."

But, that said, his vote goes to Sally Draper. "We would want to watch Sally grow up. Move through the '70s and turn into a rock star and turn into Joan Jett or something," he added. "Ride a motorcycle and kill a guy. Make a bunch of money and then become Oliver Stone in the '80s. Date Kurt Cobain in the '90s. She's just a touchstone for every generation. Yeah, I'd watch that show. 'Sally Through the Decades.'"

Hamm also had high praise for Kiernan Shipka, who played Sally throughout the show's seven-season run.

"I've looked at pictures of Kiernan when she was in season one, when she was 6, and I don't have children, but I don't understand how that works," Hamm said. "They just grow into completely different people. That's so weird. But that's been part of Don's journey, is watching this child, who he's responsible for, grow into this woman, who he's also responsible for."
