Dylan Farrow: 'I'm telling the truth'

Allen stands accused of molesting her in the attic of the family home, claims the celebrated filmmaker has always strenuously denied.

"I see not only how complicated this matter is, but that my actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed", she said.

Others to distance themselves from Allen in recent weeks include To Rome With Love's Greta Gerwig, Wonder Wheel's David Krumholtz and Mira Sorvino, who vowed to never work with him again having won an Oscar for her role in 1995's Mighty Aphrodite.

The interview, which airs on CBS on Thursday and is Farrow's first on television according to the USA broadcaster, comes after she used a newspaper article to question why Allen has been spared by the "revolution" that ended Harvey Weinstein.

Asked why people should believe her now, she replied: "I suppose that's on them, but all I can do is speak my truth and hope, hope that somebody will believe me instead of just hearing".

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

Allen has consistently denied the abuse allegation, maintaining his ex-partner and Farrow's mother, actress Mia Farrow, coached their daughter into making the claims.

"I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the courageous artists who are fighting for all the people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve".

Matters came to a head on Tuesday when Timothee Chalamet, 22, star of Allen's latest venture, A Rainy Day in NY, announced he was donating his fee to organisations fighting sexual abuse: "I don't want to profit from my work on the film".

The breakout star of Call Me By Your Name announced yesterday on Instagram that he didn't want to profit from his work on Allen's A Rainy Day in NY, which wrapped shooting in the fall.

Actor Alec Baldwin voiced his support for Allen on Tuesday, taking to Twitter to defend the director.

She even went on to put the claims in various articles, including a New York Times op-ed in 2014.

Last December, Dylan Farrow wrote another op-ed in the Los Angeles Times under the headline "Why has the #MeToo revolution spared Woody Allen?".
