Fans now have the chance to download on this smart, funny, and brilliantly original show ahead of its release on Blu-ray and DVD. With four seasons under their belt, Girls has brought some great guest stars in and this season was no exception to that standard…

Natasha Lyonne

Lyonne is an American stage, film, and television actress, best known for her roles in the American Pie films as the wisecracking Jessica, and the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black as Nicky. Recently nominated for a 2014 Primetime Emmy® Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series, Lyonne has appeared in over 30 films since being cast by Woody Allen in Everyone Says I Love You at the age of 16. In the fourth season of GIRLS, Lyonne guest stars as Rickey, Beadie’s daughter, coming to steal her mother back from Jessa.


Rita Wilson

This brilliantly talented American actress, singer and producer is known mainly for the films Sleepless in Seattle, Jingle All the Way, and Runaway Bride. Wilson was famously responsible for bringing My Big Fat Greek Wedding to the big screen as a producer. In the fourth season of GIRLS, Wilson continues to play the role of Marnie’s uninhibited ‘stage’ mother Evie Michaels. Hilariously, when she goes to see Marnie’s first public gig at the Jazz Brunch, Evie effortlessly mouths along to every single lyric that pours forth from her beloved offspring’s lips.

Zachary Quinto

Quinto is an American actor who has evolved into a very well-known, extremely successful actor. He is best known for his portrayal of Sylar in the sci-fi series Heroes, as well as his role as Spock in the hugely successful franchise re-boot of Star Trek. He also had roles in multiple seasons of horror television series, American Horror Story, which gained him tremendous popularity and a Primetime Emmy® nomination in 2013 for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie. Quinto guest stars as Ace, Mimi-Rose’s ex-boyfriend, in the fourth season of GIRLS alongside Lena Dunham. He portrays himself as a laid back but likable douche who plays the part of a crazy ex-boyfriend quite well.


Ana Gasteyer

This actress is best known for her outstanding and hilarious work on Saturday Night Live. She created some of the most famous SNL characters. Gasteyer has proved, however, that her acting can go far beyond a comedy skit. She has starred in numerous hit films and has earned rave reviews on Broadway as Elphaba in Wicked, as well as Columbia in The Rocky Horror Show. Gasteyer plays the role of Shoshanna’s mom, Melanie Shapiro, in Season Four of GIRLS, opposite Anthony Edwards who plays Shoshanna’s dad. She brings the right level of intensity and humour, giving audiences a glimpse of how Shoshanna’s childhood must have played out.

Gillian Jacobs

This American actress/director is extremely talented both on the screen and behind-the-
scenes. She has appeared in theatrical productions, TV series, and films, mainly known for her performances in Community, The Box, and Walk of Shame. Season Four of GIRLS sees Jacobs portraying a recurring character named Mimi-Rose Howard, as a whimsical multimedia artist who catches Adam’s interest and presents a problem for Hannah.

Girls: The Complete Fourth Season is now available to digitally download via Amazon Instant Video, blinkbox, Google PlayTM, iTunes, Wuaki and Xbox from HBO Home Entertainment.
