Mexican actor makes fresh allegation against Kevin Spacey

Kevin Spacey has been accused of harassment

Wednesday, November 1, 2017

A Mexican actor has accused Kevin Spacey of sexual harassment, following his apology to Anthony Rapp who accused him of making a sexual advance when he was a child.

Roberto Cavazos made the allegation against the House Of Cards actor on Facebook, according to The Times of India.

He said: "I myself had a couple of unpleasant encounters with Spacey that were on the edge of being called harassment.

"Moreover, had I been a woman, I probably would not have hesitated to identify it as such, but I suppose that the lack of a more specifically direct or aggressive action led me to justify the incident as 'one of those things'."

Cavazos claimed the harassment took place whilst Spacey was working as the artistic director at the Old Vic Theatre in London.

The actor also said he had heard of others who had "encounters" with Spacey in meetings which turned out to be "a picnic with champagne on the stage."

He claimed he wouldn't be surprised if allegations against Spacey reach "numbers similar" to those against film producer Harvey Weinstein.

But Cavazos admitted inappropriate behaviour is widespread within theatre and people "ask their actresses how their sex life is going or openly play [with] their students in front of the rest of the class" or ask them to undress in auditions.

Following the Anthony Rapp allegation filming for House Of Cards has been postponed and Spacey won't be given the International Emmy Founders Award in November.
