Allison Williams Takes First ‘Peter Pan’ Flying Lesson, Pays Tribute to Robin Williams

Proud Dad
Watch Brian Williams report on his daughter's big news.
Here’s your first look at Allison Williams flying high in the sky some warehouse as she prepares for her role as Peter Pan.

The 26-year-old actress shared a video of her first day, along with a heartwarming message:

“First day of flying lessons for Pan,” Williams wrote. “Thinking about and missing a hero of mine who once did this and left big shoes to fill.”

The Girls star is of course referring to the 1991 film Hook, starring Robin Williams as Peter Pan. Williams was found dead in his California home on Monday. The Marin County Sheriff’s Department later ruled that the 63-year-old actor passed away from asphyxiation due to hanging.

Last month, NBC announced that Allison Williams will star as the boy who can fly in a live version of Peter Pan, set to air on Dec. 4 from a soundstage on Long Island.
