Dylan Farrow On Woody Allen Sexual Assault Allegations: ‘I Am Telling The Truth’

In the wake of renewed interest in sexual assault allegations against her estranged father, Dylan Farrow will appear on CBS to discuss the current situation.

Farrow is due this Thursday for her first on-air interview to discuss the long-held accusations against her estranged father Woody Allen.

The move comes following renewed interest in her claims in the wake of the #MeToo and Time's Up campaigns, which have seen top entertainment industry figures including Harvey Weinstein, James Franco, and Kevin Spacey come under intense scrutiny for allegedly inappropriate sexual behavior.

Farrow reiterated her claims in an LA Times op-ed toward the end of last year, which questioned why the likes of Weinstein had been criticized and demoted but Allen emerged unscathed. Now, she's set to tell all in front of the entire nation.

"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," Farrow will be heard saying during the interview.

The accusations dated back to 1992 when Farrow was just 7 years old. Allen stands accused of molesting her in the attic of the family home, claims the celebrated filmmaker has always strenuously denied. The claims were investigated by law enforcement officials at the time, but no charges were pressed.

As the #MeToo and Time's Up campaigns bring more and more transgressions to light, a number of stars have come under fire for continuing to associate themselves with Allen, among them Rebecca Hall, and Timothée Chalamet, both of whom star in the upcoming A Rainy Day In New York.

Both actors have publicly apologized and pledged to donate their salaries to the Time's Up campaign and relative charitable organizations.

In anticipation of this year's Golden Globes, where many stars appeared on the red carpet either in symbolic black, in solidarity with victims of sexual assault, or with Time's Up pins on their lapels, Farrow took to Twitter to again label Allen a "predator."

Although several stars have distanced themselves from the disgraced filmmaker, others have chosen to stand by him, including Alec Baldwin, who used the lack of any formal charges against Allen as proof that the current treatment of him is "unfair and sad."

Likewise, Moses Farrow, another child of Allen, claimed his sister's accusations are false and that she might be lying to keep her mother, the actress Mia Farrow, onside. Dylan's brother, Ronan Farrow, however, was one of the journalists whose reporting aided Weinstein's downfall.

The CBS interview with Dylan Farrow was filmed at her home in Bridgewater, Connecticut. Previews will be shown on CBS This Morning on Wednesday, with the full interview airing on Thursday.
