Allison Williams talks ‘Girls,’ her dog Moxie and being ‘Team Ray’

Allison Williams is a New York girl through and through.

The “Girls” star is freshly back in town from Fairhope, Alabama, where she’s been shooting her first feature film, “Get Out.”

“I was waiting for the right one, and this was the right one,” Williams said of why the thriller, written and directed by “Key & Peele’s” Jordan Peele, is her first full-length movie.

The 27-year-old got a taste of playing the lead in a special episode of “Girls” airing Sunday, dedicated to her newlywed character, Marnie. “I was very excited about the idea of being able to spend such a sustained amount of time in Marnie’s world,” Williams said of the episode, written by Lena Dunham. “It was the most special experience of being able to paint what I hope is a very complete and complicated and interesting picture of Marnie’s life.”

We spoke with Williams on her day off from the “Get Out” set, and learned a few things about life in the country, what she misses about New York when she’s out of town and of course talked about her adorable pooch (and Instagram celebrity) Moxie.

Here’s what we learned about the “Girls” star.
