“Girls” star Allison Williams visited Bond at the Langham on Thursday night to celebrate her Boston Common cover. In the March issue of the magazine, the daughter of NBC’s Brian Williams talks about Matt Damon, Boston accents, and explains that she’s a local girl. “I feel I’m the product of the outdoors of New England,” she tells Boston Common. “I was born and raised in Connecticut. I went to preschool at the New Canaan Nature Center, and a large portion of my childhood was spent outdoors. When I was in elementary school, also in New Canaan, we used to tap our maple trees and make maple syrup. We would go on little trips to Rhode Island or Maine. I am chock-full of New Englandy — and have a deep, deep affection for it.”
