Is Peggy off ‘Mad Men’ for good?
‘Mad Men’ star Elisabeth Moss may be off the show for good.
Jared Harris, the British actor who plays Lane Pryce — a partner in the ad agency who killed himself on last Sunday’s stunner episode — let it slip yesterday that the actress who plays Peggy “left.”
In an interview with the digital paper The Daily, Harris said he didn’t get a going-away party from the cast and crew because so many actors were leaving the show.
“Actors are always ending jobs.” he told the paper. “It isn’t a big deal in that sense. . . . Elisabeth [Moss] left the episode before, and she’d been there since the beginning.”
“Oh, is Peggy dead from the show?” the interviewer asked.
A stammering Harris replied: “Um . . . I have no idea what [show creator] Matthew Weiner intends to do and even then I couldn’t tell you.”
Peggy abruptly left the agency for a new job two weeks ago.
Weiner, who used to write for “The Sopranos,” has carried on the ruthless practice of getting rid of major characters.
Losing Peggy would be a big change. The series began with her first day at work.
