The 28-year-old actress created and stars as Hannah Horvath on the HBO series, and discussed her risqué scenes in an interview with Yahoo this week. Dunham previously appeared in sex scenes for indie films, but said the experience was different on a television set.
"[I learned] I'm a little braver than I thought," she related. "It was one thing when I was doing them on indie film sets, but when you step on to a set that's 50 or 100 professional crew members I went, 'Wow, I really did it today. I took my robe off.'"
