Who was in Peter Pan Live!‘s croc suit? It wasn’t Brian Williams, father of Peter Pan him/herself Allison. It also wasn’t The Sound of Music Live! star Laura Benanti, despite what she may have claimed on Twitter. No, it was someone else; someone who quite literally kept a lower profile: Assistant choreographer Charlie Williams. (No relation).
Much of the Twitter activity during the event was directed toward the crocodile, who was named the “true breakout star” of the production by Mashable. EW got Williams on the phone to dish on what it was like playing Captain Hook’s reptilian foe—and dealing with Christopher Walken’s croc-enthusiasm.
