If Lena Dunham had to kill anyone on her HBO show, “Girls,” it’d have to be Shoshanna.
“I think about it all the time,” Dunham told Garage magazine. “I don’t want to kill Jessa off because it’s too obvious. She seems like the person who’s going to drive off a cliff or contract a horrible, life-threatening disease through bad behavior — or she’s going to eat something weird and get something strange. The implications of Marnie dying would be too insane for Hannah. Which only leaves the option of Shoshanna.”
Shoshanna is definitely our favorite character on the show, and not just because she’s the cast’s token Jew, although it definitely helps.
Played by Zosia Mamet, she has a hilarious innocence to her: her “baggage” for season one was keeping her virginity, she spends a lot of time talking about how much she loves Camp Ramah, and it takes her several weeks to realize her boyfriend is living with her.
Please don’t kill her, Lena!
