SEVENTEEN – Kiernan Shipka has been working as an actress for pretty much her entire life, but for years, the former Mad Men star was probably more on your parents’ radar than on yours. “I may as well have been a fly on the wall at the Kids’ Choice Awards,” she tells Seventeen in an interview. Now, with the 19-year-old playing iconic teen witch Sabrina Spellman in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, she’s finally ready to welcome a new fan base: people her own age. “Having my friends be genuinely excited to watch the show is really cool,” Kiernan says.

The creepy series has all the facets of a grown-up role (A love triangle! Challenging authority! Blood!) and a pro-female message she’s happy to get behind. “I’m unreasonably excited that young girls are going to get to have this character be an inspiration to them. I think she is so strong-willed, has such a good heart, speaks her mind, stands up for herself, and questions things that she feels aren’t right.”

Get to know Kiernan and you’ll feel the same way about her too.

ON DOING GOOD
An upside to having phones and social media has been so much more awareness of all the injustices and things going on in the world, and having a voice and platform that just didn’t exist before. It’s just really incredible to me—I feel like I can continually learn new things every single day. Recently on Instagram, I did the 10 Featured Teachers [campaign], and it was so amazing and such a beautiful experience to see all these teachers and kids getting books that they needed. It was very gratifying to see it actually have an impact in individual people’s lives and to [watch] thank-you videos from [people] who are just so, so happy to have a book that they’ve wanted…it’s just amazing. So more of that to come, for sure. I’m interested to see how we can take that hashtag and put it on a greater scale.

ON HER BIG ROLE
She’s drawn to Sabrina’s girl power.

I gravitate toward feminist content because that’s just who I am. But there was something so cool about this show being so feminist while still having this very separate fantastical element. It’s sort of set in this “timeless” period where there aren’t many references to pop culture, or what’s happening now or what happened in the past. But at the same [time], it’s related to what’s happening in many different ways and resonates on so many levels. (Read more of the interview at the source)

Looks like there will be a special christmas episode of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina titled Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale airing on December 14th on Netflix.

TEEN VOGUE – Kiernan Shipka is a professional. At 18, her résumé reads longer than those of a lot of other actors. But even working steadily for over a decade — 12 years and counting — can’t prepare you for being tagged on Instagram as someone’s Halloween costume.

It’s a really weird, kind of surreal experience,” the actor admits of having seen fans dress as the teen witch. “But it’s so cool and I’m loving what I’m seeing.” Fittingly, the day also happens to be Sabrina’s birthday. In the new Netflix series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, it’s also a lunar eclipse and the day Sabrina is set to sign her name away to Satan himself, join the unholy Church of Night, and renounce her life as a mortal forever. (Spoiler alert: she has second thoughts, and wants to read the fine print before literally making a deal with the devil.)

Kiernan, meanwhile, is multitasking in her own way: already filming scenes for season 2 of the show, and watching the DIY costumes roll in on Instagram. (“People are getting their cats involved!” she adds.) It’s a relatively new sensation, too; while she concedes that people may have dressed up as Sally Draper, one of the few voices of reason on Mad Men, there’s something singular about seeing Sabrina be born anew in tribute. “She’s such a fun, badass character, and she’s so right and current for this sort of time that we’re in,” Kiernan says. “I think that will resonate with a lot of people.”

Iterations of Sabrina have been in the works for years; at one point, creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has said, the character could have shown up as the villain on Riverdale. But it is now a TV show, and it is dark and twisted and deals in horror, the occult, and teenage love triangles in equal measure. That it debuted in 2018, when almost everything feels horrible, might be nothing short of magic.

The character of Sabrina was born in 1962, and brought a supernatural element to the squeaky-clean hijinks of the Archie comics. It wasn’t until 2014 that her story took a turn for the gruesome, when The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina debuted as a comic book (Aguirre-Sacasa wrote that book as well.) As a result, the Sabrina Spellman of 2018 isn’t the Sabrina the Teenage Witch from the days of the TGIF sitcom lineup; they’re each an adaptation of different source material. That Sabrina crimped her hair and had a talking cat, and when she pointed her finger, a tinkling little sound would indicate that magic was at play. This Sabrina loves horror movies, must choose between a mortal education at Baxter High or a magical immersion at the Academy of Unseen Arts, and slits a frenemy’s throat. (Don’t worry: she buries her in a bewitched garden that brings people back from the dead.)

Yet underneath the show’s supernatural forces and macabre storylines lies what Kiernan believes is a kernel of truth. Sabrina, she explains, is “sort of torn between two worlds, and instead of choosing a path, she forges her own. That’s what I love about this show and that part of the story: it’s so relatable. Even though it’s about witches and has that added layer of fantasy to it, there’s a very grounded-in-reality aspect to it as well.”

Kiernan knows a thing or two about feeling torn between two things, “on smaller scales, on bigger scales,” she muses. “Whatever you choose, whatever path you take, you’re gonna learn something, you’re gonna take things away from it as long as you make them most of that experience. I don’t think that having a hard time is inherently negative. I think that it can make you a stronger person; it can be tough and painful but it can make you grow. I think that’s definitely easier said than done but I think approaching everything with a level of curiosity instead of judgment would be my main advice.”
