In The Bustle Booth With Kiernan Shipka


When celebrities come into Bustle HQ in New York, whether it's for a photoshoot, videoshoot, or a Facebook Live, we want to give them the chance to leave their mark. Literally. So we hand them a pen, a piece of paper, a few questions, and ask them to get creative. The rest is up to them. This time, actor Kiernan Shipka is leaving her mark in the Bustle Booth.

Whether you watched her grow up on Mad Men as Sally Draper or are enjoying her current turn as Bette Davis' daughter B.D. Merrill on Feud, chances are you're in awe of Kiernan Shipka's talent. The 17-year-old actor never fails to command the screen, even when she's working alongside a living legend like Susan Sarandon. Now, Shipka is starring in The Blackcoat's Daughter, a horror film where she is taking a lead role alongside Emma Roberts and Lucy Boynton.

Filmed in 2015, The Blackcoat's Daughter will be in select theaters and available on demand starting Friday, March 31. The film follows Shipka's Kat and Boynton's Rose, who are mysteriously left behind by their parents at boarding school during winter break.

Shipka recently dropped by the Bustle office to promote The Blackcoat's Daughter and to share a few of her favorite things — including her celebrity crush. Which, once you see who she picked, you will be even more impressed by just how cool and sophisticated she is, in addition to being one of Hollywood's brightest young stars.
