Mad Men features an ensemble cast representing several segments of society in 1960s New York, although it focuses most on Don Draper. Mad Men places emphasis on showing each character's past and their development over time. The following character summaries were based on information gathered from the page 'About the show' at amctv.com.
* Donald Francis "Don" Draper (Jon Hamm): Creative director and eventual junior partner of Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency; Draper is the series' main character. His past is shadowy, but he has achieved success at the agency. He is married to Elizabeth "Betty" Draper and has three children, but has a history of infidelity. Draper's real name is Dick Whitman; he assumed the real Don Draper's identity during the Korean War.
* Margaret "Peggy" Olson (Elisabeth Moss): Olson rises from Draper's secretary to a copywriter with her own office. She unknowingly becomes pregnant with Pete Campbell's child, is told she suffered a mental breakdown after the unexpected birth given that she did not know of her pregnancy, and gives the baby up for adoption.
* Peter Dyckman "Pete" Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser): A young, ambitious account executive from a privileged background. Campbell tries to blackmail Don Draper with information from Draper's past. He and his wife are unable to conceive a child, and he remains unaware of his child with Olson until the second season finale.
* Elizabeth "Betty" Draper (née Hofstadt) (January Jones): A former model and Don Draper's wife and mother of their three children, Sally, Bobby and Eugene Scott. She gradually becomes aware of her husband's womanizing over the first two seasons. Following a brief separation, Betty allows Don to return home after discovering she is pregnant with their third child, but not before having a tryst of her own.
* Joan Harris (née Holloway) (Christina Hendricks): Office manager and head of the secretarial pool at Sterling Cooper. She has a long-term affair with Roger Sterling until his two heart attacks cause him to end the relationship.
* Roger Sterling Jr. (John Slattery): One of the two senior partners of Sterling Cooper, and formerly a good friend of Don Draper. His father founded the firm with Bertram Cooper, which explains why his name is before Cooper's. A picture in Cooper's office shows Roger as a child alongside Cooper depicted as a young adult. In the same scene[episode needed], Cooper refers to the picture and calls Roger "Peanut", indicating that theirs is a friendship (perhaps even family relationship) that spans many decades. In Season 2, Bertram Cooper mentions that "the late Mrs. Cooper" introduced Sterling to his wife, Mona, who Sterling is in the process of divorcing in favor of Don's former secretary, the 22-year-old Jane. Bertram Cooper's sister, Alice Cooper, babysat for Sterling when he was a child. Sterling served in the Navy and was a notorious womanizer (living like he was "on shore leave") until two heart attacks changed his perspective, at least for a while. The heart attacks did not affect his drinking or smoking habits, which remained excessive. He retains considerable affection from both Sterling Cooper employees (with whom he has far more contact than Bert Cooper) and his family. By 1962, Sterling has returned to work and is seen to indulge in his old habits.
