On today's show I talk to actor Lola Kirke. Lola comes from a family of artists and musicians - her father is Simon Kirke of the bands Bad Company and Free, her mother is Lorraine Kirke, a fashion designer and interior decorator, and her sister is Jemima, who plays Jessa on Girls. But at the age 24, Lola is no slouch herself. She's acted in films like Gone Girl and shows like The Leftovers, she plays the lead in the Amazon series Mozart in the Jungle, and she's one of the stars of Noah Baumbach's latest film Mistress America.
