For the first time, Dylan Farrow is going to discuss her sexual abuse allegations against adopted father Woody Allen in a television interview. She has previously written extensively about the allegations, which Allen has denied. “She said her father abused her as a child,” interviewer and CBS This Morning anchor Gayle King says in the trailer’s voiceover, “but her father, Woody Allen, denies it.”

Dylan’s allegations against Allen came to light when she was just seven years old, following a 1992 Vanity Fair report. In 2003, when Dylan was 28, a second extensive piece on the subject was published in the magazine. But it seems to have taken until now for people to really take notice and stop working with him, following the avalanche of sexual abuse allegations in Hollywood and beyond. Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page have recently expressed regret for working with Allen. Timothée Chalamet and Rebecca Hall will donate their salaries from their work in the upcoming Allen film, A Rainy Day in New York, to the Time’s Up movement (among other charities).

In a quote from CBS, Dylan says, "I am credible and I am telling the truth and I think it's important that people realise that one victim, one accuser, matters. And that they are enough to change things." The full interview airs on Thursday and will no doubt see many people, finally, tuning in.
