Actress Jemima Kirke, Heights resident and daughter of Bad Company (and, before that, Free) drummer Simon Kirke and fashion and interior designer Lorraine Kirke, is in Lena Dunham’s movie Tiny Furniture as well as Dunham’s forthcoming comedy series for HBO. Interviewed by Noemi Zeichner, she had this to say:
Hot Trends USA: How did you meet Lena, who wrote, directed and cast you in Tiny Furniture and the upcoming HBO show?
Lena I met in high school. She states we met in middle school at a diversion where they got all the different private schools together, in the bathroom and I was wearing some really cool outfit like a tube top or something, and she was like “cool tube top”. I don’t remember that, but we became close at St. Ann’s in Brooklyn Heights, which is fucking boring. There’s nothing in Brooklyn Heights, it’s just a beautiful neighborhood. Actually that’s where I live now. It hasn’t changed or anything, its just that I’ve changed and this is where I want to be now.
