Lena Dunham is the writer, director, and lead character (she plays Hannah) in the hit HBO series, Girls. For the most part, the story-lines in her scripts are often parallel to her real life--a girl in her twenties who grew up in New York, went to school in the Midwest, and has returned to New York with little or no direction in life. Luckily for us, unlike her sad, yet comedic characters, Lena has gone on to be an award winning writer/director/actress and has even become a New York City socialite along the way.
