Iconic series ''Mad Men'' celebrates kick off to the show's final seven episodes with an elegant black tie event in Los Angeles. Holly Rubenstein reports.
January Jones, Christina Hendricks and John Hamm were part of a star-studded line up to walk the red carpet in Los Angeles on Wedneday for the black tie premiere of Mad Men's final episodes. Though he refused to comment on it, Hamm - who plays the dapper Ad man Don Draper - looked well and rested after reportedly completing a treatment program for alcohol abuse. For many the evening was bittersweet, offering the stars a chance to look back with nostalgia at a show that helped define a golden age of television. SOUNDBITE Actor, John Hamm, saying (English): "Kind of an interesting show to appear on the landscape in 2007 on a network that people were not sure was AMC or A&E. So, it was an original bit of programming and exciting. There was social relevance and some fashion stuff and some political stuff, some cultural stuff. It was fun, fun to watch." SOUNDBITE Actor, Christina Hendricks, saying (English): "She was an extraordinary character to play and I loved that she changed so much. As an actress it gave you so much to do with discoveries and nothing ever got boring. It was always exciting." SOUNDBITE Actor, John Slattery, saying (English): "We finally finished it was exhausting, the final last final day everyone was kind of wrung out. It hit everyone heavily." The start of Mad Men's final episodes will premiere in the US on AMC from April 15.
