MAD MEN CREATOR DISMISSES SHARON TATE MURDER LINK IN SEASON FINALE
Friday, June 14, 2013 - Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner has dismissed reports suggesting Jessica ParE's Megan Draper character will be murdered in the upcoming season finale, insisting fans are reading too much into the T-shirts she wears on the show..
Pare, who plays Don Draper's aspiring actress wife in the 1960s-themed drama, sent viewers into a frenzy when she wore a red star T-shirt similar to
the one moviemaker Roman Polanski's wife Sharon Tate wore for an iconic 1967 Esquire magazine shoot during an episode that aired in the U.S. on 26 May .
Tate became a victim of the Manson Family, and was murdered during a killing spree in 1969.
But Weiner tells Tv Guide magazine the fact that his leading lady wore Tate's shirt is "just a coincidence", adding, "I've wanted Megan in a real T-shirt (from the era) for a couple of seasons.
"There's a lot of death on this show, and sometimes the audience mistakes
symbolism. I hope the audience finds our finale intriguing and emotional."
And Pare isn't revealing anything - she says, "I think we're all gonna die one day... I don't know what's gonna happen. You'll have to wait and see."
The season finale will air in America on 23 June .
