SINGING THE ‘MAD MEN’ THEME SONG: HOW ALLISON WILLIAMS BECAME MARNIE OF ‘GIRLS’

It’s a rather unusual story. Fresh off the Yale college, actress Allison Williams had just started her career as an actress. That was in October 2012. Around the same time the daughter of NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams made a video and posted it on youtube.

The video that showed her performing the theme song of the TV show “Mad Men”. In a single take, with a band and set to the lyrics from “Nature Boy”. Judd Apatow was among the many people who saw the video. Good for Williams that he was an executive producer of another TV series. And so “Girls” found its Marnie.

Watch the video below.

Here’s a recent instagram post of Williams showing her practicing some Peter Pan moves – for an upcoming project.
