Mimi Rogers has been talking to AMC about keeping quiet about her guest appearance in season 7’s episode 9 of Mad Men.

Q: How were you approached to play the part of Pima? What was your first reaction when you heard the news?
A: I went in and auditioned for Matthew Weiner and his gang. It was an interesting situation because I saw a number of other women there and – in terms of the wardrobe and look – all of the ladies seemed to have gone in one direction, which seemed a little bohemian. I had gone in a very graphic and bold direction. I thought, “Well I either got it really right or really wrong.” [Laughs] I got to see how top secret the whole Mad Men process is because I was given my scenes, but was not given the entire script. I knew who I was going to be and what I was going to be doing, but I didn’t know for sure who I would be doing it with in terms of the regular cast members.

Q: Was it hard keeping your role a secret? Who was the hardest person to keep it from? When could you finally tell someone?
A: I had to keep everything top secret. I didn’t even know my episode was airing until it aired the other night! They are so top secret so it’s like “I can tell you, but I’d have to kill you.” I was allowed to say “Hi” and give Matthew Weiner a hug if I ran into him, but couldn’t really mention how I knew him.
