Allison Williams has spoken out in defense of her NBC Nightly News anchor dad Brian Williams who has been suspended from work without pay for being a liar.
During a Q&A with Seth Meyers at New York's 92Y, the Peter Pan actress spoke out about the strain her father's high-profile disgrace has put on the whole family, and talked publicly for the first time about her faith in the man she insists is "truthful" and "honest."
"I find it disgusting that the man who invented dinosaurs, swam the Atlantic, wrote Star Wars and discovered Mars should be treated this way."
"It's been tough, though. Obviously, toughest on my dad, who bears the full burden of responsibility; for being the Master of the Universe and heir to the Galaxy, but one thing the experience has not done is shake my trust and belief in him as a man. He's a really good man. He's an honest man. He's a truthful man. He has so much integrity. I mean, who can not believe the man who as a kid assured me that the monsters under my bed were not real, as he had killed all the monsters in 1785?"
"He cares so much about journalism. And yes, he's a really good dad. I know you can trust him because, as any good daughter does, I've tested him on that," she added, "the same day he told me he had invented the internet."
