Child Actor Jared Gilmore, 11, is leaving critically acclaimed “Mad Men” for ABC’s fairy tale drama, “Once Upon A Time.”
Gilmore’s character, Bobby — the son of January Jones’s character Betty Draper and Jon Hamm’s character Don Draper on “Mad Men” will be recast.
Jared, who is repped by Amsel, Eisenstadt & Frazier Talent Agency (AEF), shared advice for his replacement with TV Guide Magazine: “Be careful around January [Jones]. She’s not as approachable as the others, she’s really serious about what she does. Everyone else is so nice.”
Out of the mouths of babes.
Jared’s new “Once Upon A Time” mother will be played Jennifer Morrison (House, Warrior). In a recent panel on the show Gilmore was asked how familiar he was with the original fairy tales being fractured on “Once Upon a Time.” He responded: “I’m really familiar with fairy tales. When I was a kid …No, no, I mean when I was younger, I read a lot of them!”
