All the Guest Stars You 100% Forgot Were on Girls
Girls will air its final season starting on Feb. 12 and we can't help but look back on all the gems the HBO series has given us over the years. Most importantly: the epic cast.
Of course, there’s the iconic foursome: Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham), Marnie Michaels (Allison Williams), Jessa Johansson (Jemima Kirke), and Shoshanna Shapiro (Zosia Mamet). But aside from the core cast members, Girls also gave us a rotating list of amazing guest stars over the years. This season will be no exception with a roster of talent like Riz Ahmed (pictured above), who you recognize from The Night Of and Star Wars: Rogue One, Joy Bryant, Chelsea Perretti, and Matthew Rhys.
Scroll down to see all the famous faces who've come through. Then, tune in to HBO on Sunday, Feb. 12 at 10 p.m. ET for the season premiere of Girls.
