Vulture caught up with Brian Williams at the TIME 100 Gala the other night. The mag asked the NBC News man what it’s like to watch his daughter Allison during steamy scenes of her HBO show “Girls.”

What is it like watching Girls for you? Are you covering your eyes?
No, no. It’s kvelling, pride. It’s incredibly great. Her co-creator and I have known always that she was going to be an actress. So it’s fantastic.

You’re fine with the awkward sex scenes?
Unmitigated joy.

Not sure if Allison also inherited the sarcasm gene …. but now that you know about her first big break, have you seen how her dad got his? Here’s the video.
