Girls star Allison Williams has come to the defense of her father, Brian Williams amid his lying scandal. NBC suspended Brian without pay for the next six months. Allison talked about her father’s sticky situation during a Q&A with Seth Meyers at New York’s 92Y.

“This has been a really hard time. We have also been very lucky, counting our blessings. We have our health. We have each other. It’s been incredible to experience the outreach from people you love, family, friends, and then people we don’t even know, strangers, just reaching out saying we want him back on TV. It’s been tough, though. Obviously, toughest on my dad, who bears the full burden of responsibility for it, but one thing the experience has not done is shake my trust and belief in him as a man. He’s a really good man. He’s an honest man. He’s a truthful man. He has so much integrity. He cares so much about journalism. And yes, he’s a really good dad. I know you can trust him because, as any good daughter does, I’ve tested him on that.”

Brian was accused of lying about an incident during his coverage of the Iraq war in 2003. Lester Holt has been filling in for Williams on the NBC Nightly News. Allison’s wedding plans have been put on pause during this difficult time for her and her family.
