After six seasons, Lena Dunham’s Girls, the television touchstone for the millennial generation, will wrap up for good this spring. So will the characters all get the happy endings the viewers have been hoping for? Maybe … and maybe not.

“Every year I ask Lena if this is the one where Marnie will be fixed,” says Allison Williams, 28. “She’s always like, ‘Oh yeah because that’s what makes great TV — watching the girl who has it all figured out!’”

Jemima Kirke, 31, who plays Jessa, says that there won’t be any finality for her character. “But I don’t think I needed it,” she says. “It just needed to end for her somewhere.”

And although Dunham, 30, remains mum about what will happen to her character Hannah, the writer who’s perpetually at odds with where she’s going versus where she thinks she should be, she says at least one character will get the happy ending she always imagined.

“Zosia [Mamet], who plays Shoshanna, has the most traditionally happy ending because Shoshanna always dreamed of having that Sex and the City ending. So we wanted to give it to her. I cried during her last scene. It was like watching someone grow up.”

Says Mamet, 28: “The show is ending, but it’s not really wrapped up. It’s not supposed to feel final.”

The one thing Dunham can admit is that she will certainly be working with her costars again down the road, despite the show being over.

“Whenever I look at a project, I think of them and how they can be involved,” she says. “Because finding people you can be creative with? That’s harder than finding someone you can sleep with.”

Watch Jemima Kirke, Shiri Appleby in Trailer For Refinery29’s ‘Strangers’ (Exclusive)

The drama series stars Zoe Chao as a young woman who begins renting out her spare bedroom.

What happens when you open your home up to complete strangers? That’s what one young woman finds out in a new series coming to Refinery29.

Strangers, from R29, Beachside and Jesse Peretz (Girls), takes Isobel on a journey of self-discovery with her lesbian best friend as she begins renting out her spare bedroom in a final attempt to keep the home she loves.

The series, created and directed by Mia Lidofsky, stars The Comeback‘s Zoe Chao as Isobel and Search Party’s Meredith Hagner as best friend Cam. Shiri Appleby, Jemima Kirke, Jemaine Clement and Langston Kerman all appear as a rotating cast of house guests who help Isobel grapple with career dissatisfaction and her newly discovered bisexuality.

Announced during the Digital Content NewFronts last spring, the series is premiering at the Sundance Film Festival as part of the Short Form Episodic Showcase. It will debut on the Refinery29 website later this year.

Refinery29 also has two short films in the festival, Come Swim from director Kristen Stewart and Lucia, Before and After from director Anu Valia.

Strangers was written by Jim Strouse and Lidofsky. Sara Murphy, Jason Baum and Riel Roch-Decter serve as producers. Peretz, Michael B. Clark, Lidofsky and Alex Turtletaub executive produced alongside Refinery29’s Amy Emmerich, Shannon Gibson and Stone Roberts. Celia Rowlson-Hall guest directed and co-executive produces.

Inside ‘Inside the Actors Studio’: Backstage With James Lipton and the ‘Girls’ Cast

Inside ‘Inside the Actors Studio’: Backstage With James Lipton and the ‘Girls’ Cast

For the first time in 22 seasons, James Lipton let a journalist backstage at an ‘Inside the Actors Studio’ taping. With the Girls cast milling about, we talk about… everything.

There is a whirl of chaos that surrounds him on this frigid December night, roughly an hour before he’ll hit the stage to film the next Season 22 episode of Inside the Actors Studio. Lena Dunham, toting several bags and a respectable entourage, breezes by, chirping a giddy, “Hi! Hi! Hi!” to everyone as she passes.

People in headsets are shuttling Girls cast members into green rooms scattered in the hallway of Pace University—Dunham, along with co-stars Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, and Zosia Mamet, will be the episode’s guests—while production assistants direct audience traffic and bustle around backstage in final preparations for the taping.

But standing calm in the middle of the storm is James Lipton. This is the 266th time he’s done this since 1994, after all, and he has his rituals.

“Rule number one: Turn off the cellphone,” he whispers to me in that regal articulation that, turns out, isn’t just for TV but Lipton’s everyday speech.

In a makeshift dressing room teeming with publicists, assistants, and sound guys manipulating his suit jacket to mic him up, he manages to lock eye contact with me, as if we’re the only people in the room and not surrounded by utter pandemonium.

“Rule number two: Tape down the mic,” he continues, his serenity suddenly interrupted by panic. His eyes dart around until he sees them: the roughly 10-inch stack of large blue index cards. His Bible, marked up with post-it tabs and highlighters and five hours of research for questions he plans to ask the Girls cast.

Unretouched Photos Of Lena Dunham And Jemima Kirke Made The Lonely Lingerie Company Go Viral

Lonely is a lingerie and swim brand that went viral when they recently featured Lena Dunham and Jemima Kirke in a series of un-retouched portraits. Founded by Helene Morris and her partner Steve Morris, the New Zealand based brand has gained a cult following by embracing body positivity in their campaigns. Lonely refuses to do any retouching on their campaign images and features inspiring women instead of typical lingerie models.

“It was this shared viewpoint that drew Lena Dunham to the project,” Helene Morris said. “We were introduced through a mutual friend and she was so positive and enthusiastic about what we are trying to achieve with the project. She has been incredibly supportive of Lonely, and we really appreciate her contribution to our brand. We posted one image on Instagram and had over 1 billion page impressions and hundreds of stories worldwide. For a small New Zealand based team, it has been incredible for our international recognition and growth.”

Helene Morris was inspired to launch Lonely because she was tired of hearing complaints from women about how uncomfortable their underwear was, and she knew she could offer a solution through well-designed pieces that were showcased in a way that women could relate to.
