Biografie von Allison Williams

Dass im Showbusiness landen würde, war irgendwie klar. Sie ist die Tochter des ehemaligen NBC-Moderators 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.

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 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. ❤️🐾


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 past week in photos. ❤️ @getoutmovie @cristinaehrlich


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


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.


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).


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


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


PBJ and Goldfish. My soul on a plate. Anybody else eat like a six year old? 👧🏼


During this year's 10 Days of Giving, we raised $112,288.00!! ❤️🎉🎊🎉❤️ Thank you all SO much - and don't take it from me, take it from these guys. I spent yesterday with my friends at our Horizons program in Newark, and they wanted to say a heartfelt thank you to all of you who are helping them to meet their own goals and live out their dreams. Fewer things stand in their way because of your generosity. We still have a lot of work to do, but this is a huge start. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU. And we have begun shipping product and are working on getting you your things as quickly as possible! Today is a happy day. ☺️ Until next year...#10DaysofGiving OUT! 🎤 ⤵️


🔊🔊 Swish Swish 🔊🔊 Our winners for the tickets to the WITNESS: The Tour starring the incredible @KatyPerry are JOREY BRAUGHTON from Bakersfield, CA, and KATE NARON from Montclair, VA - Congratulations!! 🎊🎉🎊🎉 We will be in touch with all are going to have the greatest time! And a huge thank you to all of you that donated to enter to win these -- I promise it's $40 well-spent even if the randomizer didn't come up with your names. And don't worry - Moxie's side-eye wasn't for any of you. That's all me. I'm sure I was embarrassing her somehow. 🤓 Announcing the total amount we raised soon!!


LAST ITEM!!! Thank you so so much for all your donations so far. Let's close this thing out with a bang!! For those who participated last year, I predict today's item will be particularly exciting. Outdoor Voices is back - and this time, with the pants I wear every day. We have Men's and Women's sizes, but I own some of both styles and love them all. For a donation of $50, one of them could be yours. And they also threw in 40 women's workout tanks just for good measure, and those are equally awesome. And - last thing - don't forget to enter to win some Katy Perry tickets too!! You have until 11 pm EST tonight - I'm announcing the winner tomorrow. ❤️💕❤️🎉 Horizons National #10DaysofGiving


Yet another reason I love Katy Perry...from now through 11 pm EST tomorrow, make a $40 donation to enter into a drawing for 2 tickets to see Katy Perry's Witness: The Tour!! Anywhere in North America! You will have the chance to go see Katy’s tour for a $40 donation to a charity for low-income kids. What is better than that??! So much love for Katy and her whole tour for making this happen -- get in there so you can be one of the lucky recipients! More details in the link in my bio. 💕💕 Horizons National #10DaysofGiving


The third-to-last item!! Okay, so I may have trouble saying this word, but I do not have trouble saying how much I love and wear lemlem. Any time I'm in a bathing suit, lemlem is somewhere on my person. This tunic/caftan is the cutest, and we have 25 of them to give the first donors of $100. Hurry cause I think these will go fast!! THANK YOU ❤️❤️ Horizons National #10DaysofGiving


Day 9! POLO SHIRTS FOR ALL! For this morning's item, everybody (including kids) can be the proud recipients of one of these in exchange for a donation to Horizons. I still wear this particular polo (yes, "effort evidence" and all), and I've had it for 14 years. I worked as a salesperson at a Ralph Lauren store in high school, and I still wear everything I bought while I worked there. As if I didn't love Ralph Lauren enough already, they've generously donated 250 polos, so get in on the action via the link in my bio before they're gone. So much love for all of you - thank you, on behalf of the kids 💕 Horizons National #10DaysofGiving #ThisIsAlmostOver


For our second item today, a gorgeous bracelet by Monica Vinader. This is a perfect gift for someone, and I love that they're adjustable. I picked rose gold because I figured it worked best with the most skin tones - and I haven't taken mine off since I got it. We have 50 of them, and for a donation of $230 one will be coming your way. Thank you all so much for your generosity so far - tomorrow will be another great day!! :) And, of course, special thanks to Dwayne The Rock Johnson who has no idea this is happening but is randomly part of this now! Horizons National #10DaysofGiving


Day 8! Getting close to the end! This morning's product is from Wolford - back from last year with TWO different styles of bodysuits. They are the nicest in the world, and you will wear yours all the time. We have 150 of them - one for $75 and one for $140. I know they're pricey but they typically retail for much more. Enjoy them!! I promise you'll love them. As always, the link is in my bio! ❤️ Horizons National #10DaysofGiving
