Dylan Farrow, Daughter Of Woody Allen, To Discuss Sexual Abuse Allegations In 'First TV Interview'

"Why shouldn't I want to bring him down? Why shouldn't I be angry?"

An interview with Dylan Farrow, the adopted daughter of the notorious film director Woody Allen, conducted by CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King will air Thursday. Farrow plans on discussing the ongoing accusations she and others have made against her parent and her thoughts on the growing #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.

According to Jezebel, the interview was filmed on Monday at Farrow's Bridgewood, Connecticut residence. 

“I am credible and I am telling the truth and I think it’s important that people realize that one victim, one accuser, matters. And that they are enough to change things," she says in the teaser released in anticpation of the dialogue.

The conversation is being called Dylan's "first TV interview."

"Why shouldn't I want to bring [Woody Allen] down? Why shouldn't I be angry? Why shouldn't I be hurt? Why shouldn't I feel some sort of -- outrage that after all these years being ignored and disbelieved and tossed aside?" Farrow asks in the interview.

"And after all these years why should people believe you now?" King asked.

"I suppose that's on them, but all I can do is speak my truth and hope that someone will believe me instead of just hearing," Farrow responded.

BBC notes that Allen had been investigated after Farrow made claims about the filmmaker's alleged sexually abusive behavior in 1994. Prosecutors ultimately did not press charges in the wake of those accusations. Farrow continued speaking out against Allen in 2014, writing an open letter described by Allen as "untrue and disgraceful."

"Sexual abuse claims against the powerful stall more easily. There were experts willing to attack my credibility," Dylan claimed in the letter.

"The experts concluded there was no credible evidence of molestation; that Dylan Farrow had an inability to distinguish between fantasy and reality; and that Dylan Farrow had likely been coached by her mother Mia Farrow," said Allen's publicist, Leslee Dart, at the time. Dart said that "a thorough investigation was conducted by court-appointed independent experts" and that proclaimed the matter had essentially been handled.

Dylan has continued to describe Allen as a "predator" in a series of tweets issued during this year's Golden Globes award ceremony.
