'Mad Men' stars discuss kissing Don Draper, 'Game of Thrones' rumors

Two of the leading ladies of "Mad Men" stayed up late Monday to discuss food in Montreal, driving in Los Angeles, hair color and "Game of Thrones."

"Mad Men" returns this Sunday, and Jessica Paré was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and Christina Hendricks visited "Conan" to offer — in tight-lipped "Mad Men" fashion — zero insight about what to expect in the seventh and final season of the AMC series.

Paré, who stars as Megan Draper, talked about how good the bagels and hot dogs are in her native Montreal, and she sadly explained how a wheat allergy makes her break out in hives if she eats bread.

By the two-minute mark of the next video, Kimmel was ready to get at the secretive nature of "Mad Men." Paré said cast members get their scripts a few days before shooting and they are discovering what's coming just like the audience is. When she started on the show she thought she was in line for three or four episodes, not that she would end up married to Don Draper (Jon Hamm).

She said kissing Don in her first episode seemed like a sure sign that she'd quickly be gone, and that she didn't know they'd be engaged by the end of season four. A props master visited her to measure her ring finger and Paré said it was like she was being proposed to right there.

Over on "Conan," Hendricks (Joan Holloway) and O'Brien chatted about whether her beauty makes men act "silly and dopey" around her. The strawberry blond O'Brien also told the longtime redhead that he feels abandoned when actors leave the ginger tribe and change their hair color.

Hendricks also addressed the rumor that she wants to join HBO's "Game of Thrones." The actress admitted that she's never seen the show, and that she simply told someone along the way that she thought it would be fun because of all the "pelts and horns and wolves and horses or whatever they have."

"Mad Men" returns to AMC Sunday at 10 p.m.
