Whether it’s the smooth-talking Don Draper, the confident Roger Sterling, or the hardworking Peggy Olson, Mad Men brought countless fantastic characters to the television world. Everyone had their clear personalities, and the beauty of the show was in the fact that each character was flawed in their own way, yet they continued to push through in work and romance to make things work.
The big reason that the show ended up being so popular was the high-quality acting that took place. From passionate dialogues to hilarious dances, the actors drove the show forwards and connected with the audience on a deep level. While Jon Hamm might not be around for fans to follow on Instagram, many of his other co-stars are, but which one of them is the most popular?

10 Kevin Rahm (Ted Chaough) – 15.5k Followers
Ted Chaough came into the show later on in the series, working as a rival and eventual partner of Don Draper. He was the complete opposite of Don, and that is what made him such a fun character, with Ted being more of a family man.
It appears that’s something that Kevin Rahm could relate with too, as his Instagram feed is firmly focused on his family life, sharing images of what he and his family are up to on a regular basis.
9 Jared Harris (Lane Pryce) – 49k Followers
Whether you know him from Mad Men, The Crown, or Chernobyl, the one thing that is clear about Jared Harris is that he’s a terrific actor. The story of Lane Pryce is quite a tragic one in truth, but the character certainly brings a lot of spirit, attitude, and humor to the series.
His Instagram is a terrific place as it’s filled with photos of Jared with his co-stars and friends from the projects he’s been involved with during his career. It’s a great feed to check out, and his passion and love for the work he does is clear to see from it.
8 Ben Feldman (Michael Ginsberg) – 227k Followers
The character of Michael Ginsberg is one of the funniest to appear in Mad Men, bringing some terrific moments of joy to the series. However, his backstory is also a tragic one, with Ginsberg also having a lot of emotion to make him such a well-rounded character.
His Instagram account is a hilarious one to follow. Ben Feldman often shares images and captions that will cheer anybody up on a down day, while he does also take the time to address serious topics as well, which is always good to see.
7 Abigail Spencer (Suzanne Farrell) -635k Followers
Abigail Spencer might be better known for other projects, such as her role in Suits, but she did get to pop-in to Mad Men as a supporting character. Initially, she was just in the show as Sally and Bobby’s teacher, but that ended up spiraling into being one of Don’s love interests.
The two characters got close on the show, with Don almost going away with her, but it wasn’t to be. But when it comes to Instagram, Abigail is one of the most popular members of the cast, and her feed is filled with terrific images and videos that showcase her life.
6 Christina Hendricks (Joan Holloway) – 915k Followers
Christina Hendricks is one of the lead characters in Mad Men, portraying the incredible Joan Holloway. She’s quite a different character from many of the other women on the show, as she is powerful and confident immediately, whereas many of the other characters take a while to grow into that.
Her Instagram is a fun feed filled with heartwarming stories and great images of her life, both personally and at work. Christina keeps it updated frequently too, which means fans never miss out.
5 Cara Buono (Faye Miller) – 1 Million Followers
Cara Buono took on the role of Dr. Faye Miller, who was one of Don Draper’s love interests throughout Mad Men, and someone who was very intelligent. While she didn’t get to stick around as long as some other characters, she certainly made her mark on the show, helping Don begin to open up about his past.
However, Cara is actually better known for her involvement in another major television series, Stranger Things. Her Instagram has plenty of posts regarding the popular Netflix show, while also dedicating a lot to her family too.
4 January Jones (Betty Draper) – 1.1 Million Followers
January Jones was a huge part of Mad Men, portraying Betty Draper, who was one of the most intriguing characters on the show. Betty was a complex soul who suffered from a lack of patience and a temper, yet she was also loving and smart at times as well.
January played the role brilliantly and has continued to have success ever since. Her Instagram is a brilliant account, showcasing her life, often interacting with other co-stars from the cast, especially when she posts fun behind-the-scenes footage like this video.
3 Elisabeth Moss (Peggy Olson)- 1.1 Million Followers
While the show pushes Don Draper as the lead character, there is a real case to be made that Mad Men is actually Peggy Olson’s story. The series follows Peggy from her first day as a shy woman in the working world to someone who ends up thriving in the advertising industry.
Elisabeth Moss plays the role expertly, bringing comedy, intelligence and heart to her performances. She’s since gone on to do great things, particularly in the world of horror and her Instagram is only continuing to grow, just as her career does.
2 Alison Brie (Trudy Campbell) – 1.4 Million Followers
Alison Brie is a hilarious actress who has thrived in movies such as The Five-Year Engagement, The LEGO Movie, and Scream 4. However, she is best known for her lead role in GLOW, which really allowed her to showcase a whole range of emotions and acting qualities.
In Mad Men, Alison was a supporting character, playing the wife of Pete, Trudy Campbell. She went through a rollercoaster of emotions on the show experiencing real highs and lows as a character. Her Instagram has proven to be a big hit, and rightfully so, as her feed is just as entertaining as her acting work.
1 Kiernan Shipka (Sally Draper) – 8.2 Million Followers
Fans got the chance to literally see Kiernan Shipka grow up on Mad Men, starting on the show as a young child and leaving it a young adult. Her acting evolved as well and that led to Sally Draper gaining more screentime and focus as the show went on, becoming one of the most important characters of the series.
Kiernan has gone on to have great success in the field, particularly with her lead role on the show Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina. However, she doesn’t forget her roots, often posting on Instagram about Mad Men, still calling Jon Hamm and January Jones her Mom and Dad.
