  • Zosia on Shoshanna: "I'm not a method actor. I don't have a specific process and I've never talked about a character as if they were a real person. But, immediately, with her, we all talk about her like she's a real human. I'm just like, "Oh, Shosh. I wonder how her weekend was?" I just feel for her so deeply. I think I would just want to give her a huge hug and tell her that it's gonna be OK .. just like, "Shoshanna. It's gonna be fine." You can see how pained she is that she just wants to do everything right and she so desperately wants to be cool and I would just want to be like, "Breathe. It's OK."

  • Zosia on Shoshanna: "For Shoshanna it's definitely a pretty big growing season. It sounds kind of cheesy but I feel like she's really sort of finding her voice and herself and figuring life out a bit. And it's more insanity and some heart-wrenching moments -- and girls growing up in the city."

    Episode 1: Shoshanna's Fascinator: "It was such a Shoshanna thing to do to wear this tiny cocktail hat to a party, and it says a lot about where she is emotionall and Zosia Mamet brought it to life in a way I could never have imagined."

    Episode 9: Ray in Shoshanna's Snuggie: "He's taking a page from the relationship book where he borrows from the girlfriend's look, but he borrowed the most ridiculous thing ever and somehow when he wears it, it's sad and kind of weird. It makes him look very settled in the relationship in a way we know Shoshanna is unhappy with."

    Episode 10: Shoshanna's Butterfly Dress: "It's the first time we're seeing her wear something grounded in black. It has a great print, and it's still worn with the Shoshanna bow, but you see right away when you see her appear that she's made a decision, so we're trying to reflect that in her wardrobe."
