A new promo photo of Allison Williams in NBC’s Peter Pan proves all you need is a little faith, trust, and a pixie cut! The Girls actress channels her inner Lost Boy for the picture, and she’s a dead ringer for the famous flying fellow.
It was just a few short weeks ago that news broke Allison would be taking the title role in NBC’s latest live musical production. She’ll star alongside a Captain Hook played by Christopher Walken and Mr. Smee/George Darling as portrayed by The Sound of Music Live! alum Christian Borle.
The casting choice is a dream came true for Allison, who says she has wanted to play Pan since she was a tiny tot. “Besides,” she added in the NBC press release announcing the news, “what could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, sword fighting, and singing?”
Plenty, of course, but so far we’d say NBC is hitting this one out of the park. Dressed in Peter’s iconic green and sporting that shorter hairdo we mentioned earlier (which, by the way, is a wig), Allison looks ready for liftoff as she sits atop the mast of what we imagine is Hook’s ship.
Plan to set sail when Peter Pan Live! premieres on December 4.
