While Allison Williams’ film career is just getting started, her HBO show “Girls” is wrapping up this spring after six seasons. How will Marnie’s journey end?
“Desi [Harperin] has had a little bit of a secret that he’s been hiding from Marnie, and she’s going to have to deal with that going forward, so we can expect to see Marnie tackling all of that in the coming weeks,” the actress told TheWrap.
Desi, Marnie’s on-again, off-again lover, is played by Ebon Moss-Bachrach in the show. In the second episode of this season, Marnie finds Oxycontin in Desi’s briefcase, and realizes he’s been a addicted to the prescription painkiller for a year.
While the end of “Girls” means an end of an era to many fans, Williams says she’s happy with the way things are wrapping up.
“I feel so satisfied with all that the writers have gotten me to do as Marnie,” she said. “Case in point: The episode last season called ‘Panic in Central Park,’ where they gave Marnie an entire episode, and that was such an incredible vote of confidence. It was a gift and a beautifully written episode by Lena [Dunham].”
And Williams hopes that “Girls” will continue to inspire ladies around the world, even when it’s no longer on the air.
“I’m feeling good about the way ‘Girls’ will age but I’m hoping that girls continue to discover it and feel less alone in the world and isolated in their daily insecurities,” the actress said. “And I am very proud of what we’ve left behind in our time capsule.”
“Girls” stars Williams, Dunham, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet and Adam Driver. It premiered in 2012. The fourth episode of the final season aired on Sunday.
