Lena Dunham and Stephen Fry

Writer, director, actress and producer Lena Dunham – who is best known for her critically-acclaimed show Girls – was seated on Fry's left, but not many realised that fact until she removed her sunglasses to get a better look at Centre Court.

The last time Dunham had been seen in public in February, after all, her hair was lighter and she didn't have a front fringe.

"Challengers 2," Dunham later wrote on Instagram, referencing the steamy tennis drama starring Zendaya, Mike Faist and Josh O'Connor that garnered much attention when it was released earlier this year.

Green, 27, who appeared in the final season of The Crown, was dressed in a dapper grey suit for the outing.
