'Mad Men' John Slattery: 'Roger and Joan are soulmates'

By
Mad Men star John Slattery has said that he believes Roger and Joan are "soulmates".

However, the actor said that despite their feelings for each other, he does not anticipate a reunion between his character and Christina Hendricks's alter ego.

"They love each other," he said during an appearance on Watch What Happens: Live. "I don't know whether they'll ever be together, but they're sort of soulmates, I think."

Slattery said earlier this week that Roger is "not enjoying himself" in the latest season, particularly because of his "impulsive" marriage to Jane (Peyton List).

"I think all the characters suffer the consequences of their choices," he said. "Roger's marriage to Jane was impulsive, and it isn't necessarily a match made in heaven.

"He may be in love with Joan, but he wasn't able to make the choice to marry her."

Addressing the romance between Roger and Joan in 2010, Hendricks said: "I think the audience wants that, so [creator] Matt [Weiner]'s like, 'Well if the audience wants it, of course I won't do it'... He just cares that what is going to naturally happen, naturally happens."

Mad Men airs on Sundays at 10pm on AMC in the US and on Tuesdays at 9pm on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
