Megan’s trajectory as a young actress in New York was quite different from mine, probably because I did not live in a Park Avenue apartment with a handsome, wealthy ad exec while launching an acting career. Any actor who’s lived in a spooky fifth-floor walkup with five deadbolts knows what I’m talking about. That’s probably why I more readily identify with Julia, who pointedly told Megan, “Some of us act for a living and we wait tables when we don’t.”

That was my life, too.
Megan Draper's sour words about DARK SHADOWS isn't the only connection between the two soaps. Actor DAVID SELBY, who played immortal rogue Quentin Collins on the '60s soap, has appeared on MAD MEN, as has JOANNA GOING (Victoria Winters in the 1991 DARK SHADOWS "revival") and MARLEY SHELTON (Victoria Winters in the unaired 2004 DARK SHADOWS television pilot.)
