Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham’s career took off at the 2010 South By Southwest Film Festival, where her debut film as a writer, director, and actress, ‘Tiny Furniture,’ won the Best Narrative Feature award and garnered the attention of Hollywood. Judd Apatow was a fan, and offered to partner with her on an HBO series. The results, ‘Girls,’ became one of the channel’s most popular comedy series. Four seasons of the Brooklyn-set show have already aired and a fifth is on its way. In 2014, Dunham published her first book, a collection of essays titled ‘Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s ‘Learned.’’
