Ratings weren’t the only thing that had a fiery take off for NBC’s adaptation of ‘Peter Pan Live.’ Allison nearly took down a wall during her opening scene performance!
It was a magical night for Allison Williams, when she stared in Peter Pan Live on NBC Dec.4. But with all live performances, you have your fair share of mishaps. The Girls star started the show out a bit shaky while trying to fly on high-wires.
Allison Williams: Crashes Into Wall?
Peter Pan Live has received nothing but praise since it aired on Dec. 4, but we can’t say it was flawless.
In an opening scene, Allison’s character (Peter Pan), tries to prove he has magical powers to Wendy and demonstrates this by flying around the room.
Just as Allison was about to take flight, she nearly crashed into the wall! But all was ok, because she had cat-like reflexes and steadied herself on the wall. She quickly shook off the minor high-wire mishap and continued to wow the audience.
She did admit prior to the live TV event, that she was in fact nervous!
“I’m not gonna lie,” Allison told NBC in a behind-the-scenes interview, “The bigness of it felt scary for a hot second. This, it’s the absolute dream job, and I think it’s because I picked a career where you don’t actually have to grow up.”
Well, Allison, not all live performances go off without a single hitch, but you proved to shine regardless of almost smashing into a wall!
Christopher Walken Stole The Show
Aside from Allison’s unique performance of Peter Pan, her co-star Christopher Walken was amazing as he dazzled us during his role as Captain Hook.
Just his dance moves alone were spectacular — tap dancing like a pro!
