As Janice, Hannah's boss on this season of Girls, J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons got to fire Lena Dunham from her snack-laden advertorial-writing gig at fake GQ. So when we saw her at last night's Cinema Society and Links of London screening for Jude Law’s latest comedy, Dom Hemingway, we had to ask her about the honor.
“It was not an honor,” Lyons told the Cut. “I killed myself off. I keep texting [Lena], and I’m like ‘You can freelance! I don’t want you to be gone, because I don’t want to be gone. Really I didn’t mean it, you can come back!’”
But following Hannah’s acceptance into the Iowa Writers' Workshop in the season finale, Lyons isn’t sure if there'll be room for her in season four. “It looks like she’s going on to much bigger things — it looks like she will be in Iowa, so I don’t know if there will be any role for me. But it was the best, best experience, and I loved every second of it. I know it is not my day job, but it would be great one.”
Girls starts shooting again April 15 — but the cast shouldn’t be surprised if they see a tall woman in printed pastel pants lurking around the set. “I know they are getting ready to start filming soon,” Lyons said. “I will just go out and stand outside like a stalker across from the trailer, and say, I’m here!”
