Girls: Getting to Know the Cast
Christopher Abbott, who plays Marnie's puppy-dog boyfriend Charlie, got bit by the acting bug while working in a video store as a teen. "I watched movies constantly," he tells Broadway.com, "so the seed was planted." Like Driver, he first got noticed in live theater with a starring role on Broadway in John Guare's "The House of Blue Leaves," and co-starred with Elizabeth Olsen in last year's acclaimed drama "Martha Marcy May Marlene." Abbott also plays Jeremy in the buzzy Sundance hit "Hello I Must Be Going," due out later this year.
