Memorise Desiree Akhavan's name now because it's about to blow up. Her first feature film, Appropriate Behaviour (which she directed, wrote and stars in), is out in cinemas in the UK and US and the buzz is big. She describes the flick, the story of a bisexual Persian-American woman named Shirin living in Brooklyn, as a 'dark romantic comedy'. That's not where Desiree's cred stops, either: she's in the current season of Girls as one of Hannah's classmates in Iowa. Yep, we told you: she's gonna be huge. We caught up with Desiree in the middle of a crazy, promo-filled week and she told us everything from what Lena Dunham is like on set, to her advice for laydeez getting started in the industry.
