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 on 6 March 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.
