How Did Allison Williams and Fiancé Alexander Dreymon Meet?

Allison Williams rose to fame as Marnie in HBO’s quirky hit series Girls, but in the years since, she’s proven herself to be a queen of modern horror flicks. A celebrity who knows how to keep her personal life under the radar, Williams rarely speaks out about her love life and private plans.

Still, fans are interested in the star’s life and career, and after Williams became a new mother in 2021, a swell of curiosity rose. As it turns out, the M3GAN star has been in a committed relationship since late 2019 with a man who is also an actor.

In 2012, according to IMDb, Williams was cast as Marnie Michaels in HBO’s Girls, a role that would introduce her to many fans all around the world. She acted on the controversial show until it went off the air in 2017. In the years that followed Girls, Williams chose several interesting roles, including the 2017 horror film Get Out.
