John Young Shipka is a real estate entrepreneur and businessman. And while he may have contributed quite a bit to the real estate and entrepreneurial sectors, John Young Shipka is only known because of his daughter, Kiernan Shipka. 
John Young Shipka Daughter, Kiernan Shipka 
Kiernan Shipka was born Kiernan Brennan Shipka on November 10, 1999, in Chicago, Illinois, in the United States of America, and is 23 years old. She started her career in the American film industry, Hollywood, in 2001 at five months of age. She started as an infant actor, making her debut television appearance with the widely regarded hospital drama series, “ER.” Around that age, she started doing commercial-print modeling, undertaking numerous minor television roles.
In 2007, she played her first major role in the AMC drama series, “Beginnings and Mad Men,” at the age of seven going eight. She played the role of the character, Sally Draper — the daughter of the main character Don Draper — from 2006 to 2015, for which she would later receive the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series in 2008 and 2009. She auditioned for this role twice before she was considered to take part in the series. She was a recurring guest star for the show’s first three seasons but became a series regular in season four. 
With such an outstanding display of the character of the personae, Sally Draper, John Young Shipka’s daughter, Kiernan Shipka, received much praise from movie critics and lovers. And well, famous Austin American-Statesman critic, Dale Roe, named her as his dream nominee for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series. In his submission, the movie critic wrote in part, thus;

“This 10-year-old actress was so affecting as troubled Sally Draper last season that it seems odd that she’s only just been upgraded to series regular. If Shipka’s upcoming Mad Men work — struggling with the broken marriage of her parents and entering preteendom in the tumultuous 1960s — remains as amazing as it was in season three, this is a ballot wish that could come true next year.”

Before she was introduced into the movie industry, Kiernan, at the age of five, started attending ballroom dancing classes, where she was said to have attended dancing classes until March 2012. And because she developed an interest in movies at an early age, her parents relocated from Chicago, Illinois, to Los Angeles, California, when she was about six years old to help with her acting career. 
Away from that, John Young Shipka’s daughter, Kiernan Brennan Shipka, was named one of “The 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014” by Time magazine in 2014. She was also included in IndieWire’s 2014 list of “20 Actors To Watch That Are Under 20.” A highly-regarded film actress, Kiernan co-starred with Emma Roberts in the 2015 Oz Perkins horror film series, “The Blackcoat’s Daughter.” She also starred in the 2014 Lifetime movie, “Flowers in the Attic.”
