Dunham is widely famous for being an author and star of the award-winning television drama “The Girls” — one of the most successful HBO projects. However, not everybody knows that she has also directed a number of episodes.
Date of Birth: May 13, 1986
Zodiac sign: Taurus
“The Girls” being by-far the most prominent of her works is not the only masterpiece we can enjoy. Being only a little over thirty, Lena has quite an extensive filmography consisting of 15+ films, where she has played a part, been a screenwriter or a director. What is more, she is a best-selling writer.
Lena’s talent is not surprising considering that she was born into a very talented and creative family.
