Biografie von Allison Williams

Dass im Showbusiness landen würde, war irgendwie klar. Sie ist die Tochter des ehemaligen NBC-Moderators Brian Williams und der TV-Produzentin Jane Gillan – ihr Weg schien vorgezeichnet. Doch auch eine Tochter amerikanischer Fernsehgrößen sollte nicht auf eine gute Ausbildung verzichten. schaffte es sogar an die Elite-Uni Yale und schloss sich dort der Improvisations-Comedy-Gruppe "Just Add Water" an. Erste Schauspielerfahrungen hatte sie zu diesem Zeitpunkt schon gesammelt. Als 16-jährige spielte sie in zwei Episoden der TV-Serie "American Dreams". Danach wurde es aber erst einmal ruhiger um die junge Studentin.

Zufall mit glücklicher Fügung

Nach ihrem Yale-Abschluss im Jahr 2010 konnte sich Allison Williams dann voll und ganz auf ihren großen Traum konzentrieren. Sie spielte in der Miniserie "Will & Kate: Before Happily Ever After" und hatte einen kurzen Auftritt in der Sitcom "The League", ehe ein YouTube-Video ihr Leben für immer verändern sollte. Das besagte Video zeigt Allison Williams wie sie den Titelsong der Erfolgsserie "Mad Men" singt. Der Produzent , der mit gerade in den Vorbereitungen einer neuen HBO-Serie war, stieß auf genau dieses Video, war sofort begeistert von Allison Williams und lud sie kurzerhand zum Casting ein.

Allison Williams wird mit "Girls" zur Serienheldin

Der Rest ist Geschichte: Seit 2012 läuft die TV-Serie "Girls" auf der ganzen Welt Staffel um Staffel erfolgreich, Kritiker und Fans sind gleichermaßen begeistert. Mit ihren Kolleginnen Lena Dunham, und Jemima Kirke porträtiert Allison Williams das Leben junger Frauen in New York – deutlich realistischer und erfrischend witziger als "Gossip Girl" und "Sex and the City". "Girls" und die Geschichte von Hannah, , Jessa und Shoshanna war der Ausgangspunkt. Aber die Schauspielerin widmet sich nebenbei noch weiteren Projekten. 2017 kam beispielsweise der hochgelobte satirischen Mystery-Horror-Thriller "Get Out" in die Kinos. An der Seite von den Daniel Kaluuya, und Bradley Whitford brilliert Allison in dem skurrilen Streifen, der auf dem "Sundance Film Festival" seine Weltpremiere feierte.

Allison Williams privat

Beruflich ist Allison Williams unverkennbar auf Erfolgskurs und auch privat herrscht eitel Sonnenschein. Am 19. September 2015 gab die Darstellerin ihrem Liebsten, Ricky Van Veen, Co-Gründer von "CollegeHumor", auf einer Ranch in Wyoming das Ja-Wort. Wie wunderschön die Braut am Tag ihrer Hochzeit in einem bezaubernden Kleid von war, teilte sie mit ihren Fans auf Instagram. Doch es gibt noch einen anderen Mann im Leben von Allison Williams - einen Vierbeiner. Ihren Golden-Retriever-Mischling Moxie hat sie genau wie ihren Ehemann fest ins Herz geschlossen.

Yay Critics Choice Awards!! Get Out won Best Sci-Fi / Horror Movie, and @jordanpeele won Best Original Screenplay. 👏🏼 And in addition to presenting Best Actress in a TV Comedy, I wore a headband that was actually a necklace and you could kind of see my underwear! Big night for all of us. 💕 @getoutmovie @criticschoice @cristinaehrlich

The whirlwind continues! Was briefly back in NYC for the @nbrfilm awards - and now it’s back to LA for the @criticschoice awards! This has been so much fun. @getoutmovie

Also, shout-out to all the doggies who were 100% in favor of the snow-bomb-cold-storm-blizzard-cyclone-weather-Armageddon event - unaware of the havoc it wreaked in their humans’ lives. Speaking of humans, thanks to my parents for documenting Moxie’s frolicking while I frolicked in LA. 🐾

Last night was pretty amazing. It felt so powerful to be in full #TimesUp solidarity at the Globes, and it’s been wonderful to watch the donations to the legal defense fund (link in bio) climb as a result. Thank you, as always, to @cristinaehrlich for pulling together the look with help from @giorgioarmani @forevermark @rebekahforecast @kdeenihan 🖤🖤🖤🖤

08.01.2018

Today is a really exciting day. Golden Globes x #TimesUp here we come. Go to TimesUpNow.com to donate to the legal defense fund - or if you are in need of legal defense yourself - because we need to stand up for and with each other now and forever. 🖤🖤🖤 @timesupnow

Just got this photo from 2 weekends ago, when I was backstage in London at the Evening Standard Awards - where they took this VERY candid picture when I was DEFINITELY not expecting it. @eveningstandardmagazine @alexbramall @alexandermcqueen

OMG the @sagawards?! This is unbelievable! Did a little happy dance in my PJs after hearing about this one. Thank you so much to SAG - our fellow actors - for nominating the cast of Get Out for Outstanding Performance by a Cast! And huge congrats, yet again, to @danielkaluuya for his Best Actor nom. One of the best actors on the planet - I can say that with confidence and from experience. I feel so lucky and giddy...obviously. Maybe one too many cups of coffee this morning? ☕️💃🏼 @getoutmovie

TFW @getoutmovie was just nominated for Best Picture at the Golden Globes 💥🎉 (and the biggest congrats to @danielkaluuya for being nominated as well - BEYOND well-deserved). This is UNREAL. THANK YOU. ❤️

Oh Mox. I just love you so much. And I’m so glad I rescued you from @animalleague almost 3 years ago. And thanks to @rachaelray who has again made a $10K donation to the NSAL shelter as part of her annual giving campaign. Thank you so much, Rachael. I am grateful for NSAL literally every single day, so I am very grateful for you today. ❤️ #SantaPaws2017

Feeling very upset to have missed this accessory in my upbringing...but also feeling grateful for the hidden 80s goodies in a very special hair and makeup trailer. #PatrickMelrose

I recently went to Zambia on my second trip with (RED) to see firsthand the impact you can have when you buy (RED). Nothing more inspiring - especially on World AIDS Day. Since, if you’re like me, you’re scrambling to get your holiday shopping done, think about give a gift that can help save lives at Amazon.com/RED. They have such great stuff — happy shopping and life saving!! #SHOPATHON

Yay Gotham Awards!! We were SO excited that @getoutmovie won the Independent Film Audience Award - and congrats to @jordanpeele for winning Best Screenplay and Breakthrough Director. What a ride this has been - and continues to be! ❤️

Our collective vibe last night, embodied by Moxie. Game on, stomach full, face smushed, tongue out, full of gratitude, snoring audibly. Sending lots of love to you all. ❤️🐾

24.11.2017

Lots of love to all of you guys and safe/happy travels if you’re traveling!! And here’s a hot travel tip from me to you - don’t let your dogs drive. No matter how much they may want to “help,” they’re terrible drivers. ❤️🐾

Getting Out and about for Get Out...my past week in photos. ❤️ @getoutmovie @cristinaehrlich

20.11.2017

I don’t know if they’ll ever fully trust me, but I love these two a lot. (Photo taken without flash - just for everyone’s safety) @danielkaluuya @lakeithstanfield3 @getoutmovie

15.11.2017

We’ve spent so much time together that we even coordinated outfits without planning it. I️ love me some Daniel Kaluuya ❤️ this was last night at a @bafta Q&A about Get Out.

14.11.2017

Thanks to @cristinaehrlich for pulling the look together - @kdeenihan for the face - @sunniebrook for the hair - and @brandonmaxwell for the hidden pockets (everything should have pockets, IMO).

13.11.2017

Back to the Get Out party - and the social media party (hi guys!) - for the Governor’s Awards in LA on Saturday night. And who better to kick things off than @brandonmaxwell @neillanejewelry and @paulandrew ❤️

Turns out, if your wedding cake is made with ingredients from a box per your demands (store-bought funfetti and frosting), it's still delicious even two years later -- after you forget to eat it on your first anniversary. Happy second anniversary, Ricky. I love you.

My brother @dougwilliamstv and I were very blasé about the eclipse until this morning when we both panicked and realized how excited we were about it. We made plans to head to a pier on the west side, and it felt like we were toddlers again. No joke here - it was just really nice. And thank you to the kind woman who gave us her extra pair of glasses. Luckily, the bossy older sister in me has learned how to share. ❤️ // 📷 @alexastern

I made my first meme for this cause it feels legitimately important enough. I am still not over both @bacheloretteabc and @gameofthrones #TwoSongsOfIceAndFire

08.08.2017

OMG WHO ELSE IS WATCHING THIS. Most captivating television since...well, I guess Game of Thrones last night. But STILL. @bacheloretteabc

Was just gonna post this cause this rain is making me miss being lakeside like I was last weekend...but now whenever I see @Keds in one of my photos I get the song that Charlie sings in GIRLS stuck in my head: "Girl where are you going - in those Keds?" So good. #NeverForget
