`Girls` actress Allison Williams to star in `Peter Pan Live`
Los Angeles: `Girls` star Allison Williams is set to play the titular role in the musical `Peter Pan Live!`.
The 26-year-old star said it is a dream come true for her to play the role of Peter Pan, suggest reports.
"I have wanted to play Peter Pan since I was about three years old, so this is a dream come true," Williams said in a statement.
"It`s such an honor to be a part of this adventure, and I`m very excited to get to work with this extraordinarily talented team.
And besides, what could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, sword fighting and singing?" she added.
Based on the 1954 Broadway musical, `Peter Pan Live!` will be executive produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. Both producers have called the daughter of `NBC Nightly News` anchor Brian Williams "a major find".
"She will reinvent the iconic role of Peter Pan with her wit, her warmth, her dynamic flying and her wonderful musical abilities," the producers said in a statement.
Starring alongside Williams will be Christopher Walken, who has been cast as Captain Hook. `Peter Pan Live!` airs on December 4.
