Watch Allison Williams Defend Her Father

the ‘girls’ star finally addresses the controversy

It was bound to happen: Allison Williams, currently starring on season four of HBO's Girls, had yet to publicly comment on the shocking fall of her father, NBC news anchor Brian Williams. We figured she'd have to at some point, whether she was pestered on the red carpet or approached by a pesky reporter at some party. But remarkably, Williams found herself one-on-one with Seth Meyers for an interview at New York City's 92Y, so instead of addressing the scandal that has engulfed her father to some dude with a recorder, Williams broke her silence in front of a huge audience.

“One thing this experience has not done is shake my trust and belief in him as a man," a remarkably poised Williams said. "He’s a truthful man. He has so much integrity. He cares so much about journalism. And yes, he’s a really good dad, but I know you can trust him because, as any good daughter does, I have tested him on that.” Watch the exchange in its entirety below.
