It’s going to be an amazing television event, and when “Peter Pan” goes live on NBC on December 4th, Allison Williams will be ready to take to the sky.

The “Girls” actress, who scored the lead role in the production, told People that she’s already learning to fly with the help of acrobatic coaching.

"First day of flying lessons for Peter Pan. Thinking about and missing a hero of mine who once did this and left big shoes to fill."

Of course, Allison was referring to the late Robin Williams, who played Peter in “Hook” back in 1991. Williams was found dead on Monday (August 11) at his California home.
