When I started acting in the «Mad Men» I was 7. My parents forbade me to watch the series which I starred in! So when the shooting of the last season was over, I made myself the «Mad Men» marathon.The media was actively discussing the little star, focusing on the rare luck and lucky occasion, as if trying not to notice that the child’s hard work, amazing endurance, and, of course, the talent were standing behind the so-called luck. Kiernan rehearsed a lot, and is fully laid out on the set, she didn’t ignore her studies, training and ballet classes.

The roles in the «Carriers», «House Broken», «Smooch», the «Flowers in the Attic» were among her most significant roles of that period, where Danny de Vito, Heather Graham, Chris Payne, and Ellen Burstyn became the partners of the young actress on the set at various times.
The dark, atmospheric story of loneliness and human despair, «The Blackcoat’s Daughter« was the first written attempt as a screenwriter and director by Oz Perkins, the son of the great Anthony Perkins. The picture turned out to be imaginative, original, and stellar and Emma Roberts, Lucy Boynton, and Lauren Holly took part in the picture alongside Kiernan. Many critics noted that among the young actresses who took part in the film, Kiernan was the most convincing and showed the great potential for a dramatic actress.
The creators of the popular youth series «Riverdale» (the action of the new «Sabrina» takes place in the city neighboring Riverdale) were involved in the rerun. In comparison to the original, the «Sabrina the Teenage Witch« TV series with Melissa Joan Hart, the remake departs from the comedy genre and is intended not for children.
