Linda Cardellini says she's living out a sweet and an old-fashioned story: She's marrying her childhood sweetheart.
Speaking to PEOPLE at a Clinique event in New York Tuesday, the Mad Men star, 37, said she first met fiancé Steven Rodriguez when she was just 10 years old and in grade school.
"He was 11. He was the new kid at my school," she said. "He could do amazing bike tricks and I was impressed. Not afraid to say it."
