'House Of Cards' Crew Member Alleges Spacey Made Unwanted Advance In Md

"We will continue to work with [Media Rights Capital, the production house behind the show] during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show", it said. More fallout came when Spacey's talent agency Creative Arts Agency said it was no longer representing Spacey, and his publicist also parted ways with the actor.

Netflix executives have also pulled the plug on Spacey's upcoming movie Gore, which had been in post-production.

One crew member, who has worked on the show - which has suspended production indefinitely in light of allegations against its lead star - claimed he was regularly touched inappropriately by Spacey but didn't "feel comfortable" asking him to stop.

It was a stunning fall for an actor, who chilled and thrilled audiences in equal measure in roles such as corrupt United States president Frank Underwood in House of Cards, a midlife-crisis-ridden father in American Beauty, and as a serial killer in Seven.

Among those who alleged sexual misconduct were a production assistant who claimed that he was once tasked with picking Spacey up from an offsite location to the House of Cards set.

Following the release of Rapp's interview, numerous others have come forward to accuse Spacey of sexual harassment including a former House of Cards production assistant.

Vulture published allegations from a 48-year-old artist living on the East Coast, who said he began a sexual relationship with Spacey when he was 14, which ended when the actor, then 24, allegedly tried to rape him when he was 15 years old.

A young production assistant who won't reveal his name told CNN Spacey exhibited unwanted sexual behavior toward him during those first years of filming.

As a response to the report, Spacey tweeted a statement saying he didn't remember Rapp's alleged incident and apologising "for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour".

The Old Vic theater, where Spacey served as artistic director between 2004 and 2015, distanced itself from the actor. "I witnessed him groping men many times in all sort of different situations". In the week following, others have come forward with similar allegations.
