'Girls On Men' Podcast Season 7, Episode 4 with 'Mad Men's' Stephanie Drake
The actress who plays Meredith, SC&P's quirkiest receptionist, joined #pretapodcasts to unpack the latest episode and explain just how much work goes into that big hair of hers.
Stephanie Drake, who has played crack-up receptionist Meredith since season five of Mad Men, received a promotion on this season's fourth episode, as she landed on her heartthrob Don Draper's desk. And while no airplanes were thrown at her this time (thank you, Joan), she did almost take a couch to the face (Ginsberg, we're looking at you.)
While Meredith's bright outfits and voluminous hair filled the episode with welcome cheer, Roger set off on a murky quest to retrieve his daughter from a hippie commune and Peggy was tasked with giving Don orders for the first time. With the firm leaping into a new era with its first IBM computer, Don found an eery reminder of the past that sent him back to the bottle, only to be saved by good ol' Freddy Rumsen – for now, at least.
