A daughter will always come to the defense of the man who raised her.
As we reported earlier this month, NBC Nightly News' managing editor and anchor Brian Williams was suspended for six-months without pay for falsely claiming that he had been in a helicopter that had come under RPG fire while in Iraq in 2003.
Well now, his daughter Allison Williams is finally speaking up.
The Girls actress recently had a Q&A with Seth Meyers at New York's 92Y where she opened up about the controversy and how it has devastated her family.
"This has been a really hard time. We have also been very lucky, counting our blessings. We have our health, we have each other. It's been incredible to experience the outreach from people you love, family, friends, and then people we don't even know, strangers, just reaching out saying we want him back on TV."
However, the Peter Pan star asserts that her father is not a liar, and proceeds to protect his true character.
"It's been tough, though. Obviously, toughest on my dad, who bears the full burden of responsibility for it, 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. 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."
The 26-year-old even reveals that these recent events have delayed her wedding plans with fiancé Ricky Van Veen.
"It's been a very full year… You sort of think, 'What could possibly come along that would make me not think about this?' And then I get Peter Pan and I think, 'Okay, I will think only about Neverland and then we'll go back to planning our wedding'… And then current events started happening and so that derailed it a little bit, but it has been this really beautiful throughline in our lives. It's just something we haven't focused on, but, spoiler alert, we are excited!"'
Whether Brian Williams is at fault for his actions, we're glad Allison is vocal about her views.
