Well there aren’t many moments more precious than a Dad proud of his daughter, so grab the tissues, because this one is pretty major.
Brian Williams, anchor on the NBC Nightly News, made a cast announcement for the live telecast of Peter Pan (which aesthetically, will be along the same lines as that Sound of Music telecast last year). The lead, as he goes on to say, will be played by Allison Williams.
He doesn’t mention that she is his daughter per se, but the next part is pretty freaking adorable. “The family” is indeed excited.
Allison couldn’t resist celebrating too—apparently this role has been a long time coming.
