House Of Cards Producers May Kill Off Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood

Here, a look back at everything we know so far about Spacey's growing scandal and the aftermath of his poorly received apology. The Star Trek: Discovery actor alleged the Oscar victor had pinned him to a bed in his apartment when Rapp was just 14. Spacey's response was to publicly come out as a gay man via Twitter.

The streaming company did not clarify whether it would be halting production on the sixth season of "House of Cards" or if it would find a way to get rid of Spacey's character. Since then, more men have come forward with similar stories, and eight House of Cards employees have accused Spacey of sexual harassment. Montana said the incident caused him to suffer from PTSD.

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos also claimed he fended off two "unpleasant" advances that "bordered on harassment" while at The Old Vic - the London theatre where Spacey was an artistic director from 2003-15. "It seems the only requirement was to be a male under the age of 30 for Mr".

The Old Vic was "not now in a position to comment on specifics", it said. It's alleged the actor told the victim to "keep quiet" about what had allegedly transpired. When the staffer told Spacey he wasn't comfortable with the situation, he said Spacey became "visibly flustered" and left the set for the rest of the day.

A rep for Spacey announced the actor would be seeking treatment in a statement Wednesday.

British media said Spacey was the object of the inquiry.

Interest rates up for first time since 2007
Danske Bank economist Conor Lambe said: "On its own, the increase is likely to have only a modest impact". However, they appear more willing to pass the rate rise on to borrowers.

Anonymous co-workers have since come forward with more allegations of sexual misconduct against Spacey.

The Verge is reporting that Netflix has fired Spacey from House of Cards, effective immediately.

The production assistant alleges he was driving Spacey to the set inside an Abingdon warehouse when Spacey put his hand between his legs.

I was in a state of shock. "He was a man in a very powerful position on the show and I was someone very low on the totem pole and on the food chain there".

His publicist and talent agency confirmed they had dropped him, and Spacey has made no public comment other than declaring that he was "beyond horrified" by the first allegation from actor Anthony Rapp, which he claimed not to remember.
