In the hit HBO series “Girls,” actress Allison Williams plays Marnie Michaels, the high strung and often judgmental best friend of Hanna, played by Lena Dunham.

She’s had her ups and downs over the course of the show, but on the March 27 episode we got to see a different side of her often-polarizing character. The episode — titled “The Panic in Central Park” —  was entirely devoted to Marnie, her troubled marriage, and her reunion with former boyfriend, Charlie, who she hasn’t seen in years. The last time they met, Charlie told Marnie that he never loved her.

“Girls” is Allison Williams’ first substantial role as an actress. Her parents — her father is MSNBC news anchor Brian Williams — insisted she put off her acting career until after graduating college.

It was a rule she initially fought, but she told The Frame’s Oscar Garza that, as she got older, she began to see it as an advantage.

INTERVIEW HIGHLIGHTS

Your parents insisted that you wait to pursue acting until after college. What did you think of that rule?

[My parents] thought it was a good idea if I graduated from college before pursuing [acting] professionally because it gave me more time to become who I am. Some actors during summer jobs confirmed what [my parents] said.

So after finishing school, how long was it before the “Girls” opportunity came along, and how did you come to the attention of the producers? 

I slowly moved my things back into my childhood bedroom and was watching “Mad Men.” The theme song to “Mad Men” was getting so stuck in my head and … I talked to a friend of mine about putting lyrics to that song. I teamed up with a composer friend and we found out that “Nature Boy” by Nat King Cole fit snugly and, oddly, perfectly.

That video came out and it found its way onto many different websites, including Huffington Post, which I think is what Judd Apatow saw. He reached out to my agents and asked me to audition for the untitled Lena Dunham project at HBO. The audition was so different, and so fantastic. The room was filled with four women, which almost never happens. Lena was in there and we read scenes together.

First of all I would like to apologize for the lack of updates, I had been busy with school and my other websites. Anyway, here are the screencaptures of last Sunday’s episode (and all the other episodes I missed) Last episode of girls was all about Marnie and I must say I’m not saying this because I’m an Allison Williams fan, but the episode is amazing. It was like a short film and the performances were great as well as the script, directing and music. So glad Allison had an episode where she was able to show how great of an actress she is.

Unlike Marnie, the snarky, entitled millennial with a penchant for eye rolling, who she’s played for five seasons on the zeitgeist-capturing HBO series Girls, Allison Williams, 27, is personable and charming. “People assume they’re going to hate me when they meet me, and I’m delighted to report that they don’t all hate me,” she says with a self-deprecating smile and gentle laugh. “Marnie’s cold, so they assume I’m going to judge them or talk sh*t about them.”

On the contrary, the New Canaan, Conn.-bred, Yale-educated daughter of newscaster Brian Williams is quick-witted, thoughtful, easy-going, gracious and kind. She’s a fixture on the red carpet, where she radiates in head-turners from the likes of Ralph Lauren, Dior, Chanel, Oscar de la Renta and Joseph Altuzarra (whose sheer dress she rocked as his date to the 2013 Met Gala). But when we meet at Fika, a coffee spot a few blocks from Williams’ Manhattan apartment, she’s dressed down in Pilates-ready athleticwear from Outdoor Voices, Lululemon and online retailer Carbon38, and a sweater from technical cashmere company Kit and Ace. “I am the paragon of high fashion today,” she jokes between sips of a double espresso with almond milk. “I’m wearing cartoonishly large black UGG boots, which I was recently paparazzi’ed in while taking my dog, Moxie, out first thing in the morning. That should be illegal. I was wearing pajama pants and [was] just so tired.”
