“NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams had some fun announcing the casting of his daughter, Allison Williams, in the title role of NBC’s upcoming live telecast of “Peter Pan,” reports TheWrap.com.
Williams, while never announcing that Allison Williams is his daughter, reported the story as a straight news item. But he added at the end, “Family members confirm she’s been rehearsing for this role since the age of 3, and they look forward to seeing her fly.”
The comment was accompanied by a photo of Allison Williams dressed as Peter Pan when she was a little girl. “Peter Pan Live!” will air Dec. 4.
