Allison Williams opens up about the impact of 'Get Out' over a year later

Allison Williams joined BUILD to promote her new role on the Netflix series, “The Series of Unfortunate Event,” but she ended up opening up about working on the beloved thriller "Get Out."

“I hadn’t done a movie before, I was getting scripts I just hadn’t found the one,” Williams explained. “Then this script came along and I told my friends and family, this is it, this is what I’ve been waiting for.”

Williams, who is best known for her role as Marnie on the hit HBO series "Girls," shocked audiences with her unbelievable performance as Rose in the critically acclaimed horror film. The film, which is a critique for racism that is hidden in the US, received great acclaim. “I even said to my publicist that this film is gonna be nominated for an Oscar,” she gushed.

She also couldn’t help but praise Jordan Peele, the director and writer of “Get Out.” 

The greatest gift is for people to be so loving of it… and think about it so seriously because you never know if that’s gonna happen.”
