NEW YORK - February 1, 2017 -Bravo Media's Emmy Award-winning "Inside the Actors Studio," hosted by James Lipton, presents a laugh-out-loud, yet intimate episode with the cast of HBO's critically-acclaimed comedy "Girls" on Thursday, February 9 at 8pm ET/PT. Creator, co-executive producer and star, Lena Dunham is joined by fellow cast members Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet and Allison Williams to appear on Lipton's stage and discuss their most cherished experiences just days before the start of the final season premiering on HBO this Sunday, February 12th at 10pm ET/PT. Loosely drawn from Dunham's personal life, the Emmy Award-winning series is a comedic look at the raw humiliations and intermittent triumphs of a group of girls in their mid-20's living in New York City.
From their individual backgrounds to the journey they've shared together both on and off screen, Lipton leaves no stone unturned with this fervent female cast. The episode promises major revelations as a special message from Judd Apatow surprises Dunham and Williams shows off her singing chops; Kirke divulges her difficult decision to become a full-time actress and Mamet reveals an ancestral anecdote that not even her co-stars were privy to. Viewers will learn each performer's favorite scene over the course of the series, as well as their greatest takeaways and an in-depth look at what it was like to say goodbye.
