HOUSE OF CARDS STAFFERS BRAVELY SPEAK OUT ABOUT MORE ON-SET ABUSE AS THE ONCE-REVERED ACTOR LOSES HIS JOB
Kevin has been fired from Emmy Awardwinning drama House of Cards, with speculation rife over how his character Frank Underwood will be killed off. With the show ending after this season, the final episodes will likely focus on Frank’s wife Claire – played by Robin Wright.
Now, a number of show staffers have come forward with allegations, including a production assistant, who claims Kevin put his hands down his pants while they were driving to the set. ‘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,’ he says.
Another crew member reveals, ‘[Kevin] would come in and massage my shoulders from behind or put his hands around me or touch my stomach sometimes in weird ways that in normal everyday conversation would not be appropriate.’
The first complaint was made back in 2012. ‘All the crew members commented on his behaviour,’ a former camera assistant explains. ‘We have to sign sexual harassment paperwork before the start of the show and apparently [Kevin] doesn’t have to do anything and he gets away scott-free.’
Netflix has severed ties with the House of Cards actor, and revealed it won’t release his new film Gore
