The Dominion Post - - World -

Sopranos ac­tress Annabella Sciorra is al­leg­ing she was raped by Har­vey We­in­stein af­ter he barged his way into her apart­ment in the 1990s. Daryl Han­nah, best known for her star­ring roles in films Blade Run­ner and Splash is also speak­ing out, say­ing the movie mogul once tried to force his way into her ho­tel room. The ac­tresses were quoted this week in The New Yorker. Sciorra told the mag­a­zine that We­in­stein had vi­o­lently raped her in the early 1990s and, over the next sev­eral years, sex­u­ally ha­rassed her re­peat­edly. She said he ‘‘shoved’’ her onto her bed and they had non­con­sen­sual sex­ual in­ter­course. Han­nah re­called flee­ing her ho­tel room as We­in­stein de­manded to be let in.
