Spacey, who played U.S. President Frank Underwood on the show, was eventually fired, and the future of House of Cards was in jeopardy. "He's a handsy guy", the Australian actor told Denton.

While speaking with Andrew Denton on Seven's Interview, Guy Pearce hinted at an uncomfortable working environment on the film LA Confidential with disgraced actor Kevin Spacey. "I addressed and handled the situation when it took place, hence my regret at making it public now".

A trailer for the sixth and final season of House Of Cards, featuring Wright as USA president, has been released.

"Of course, it all goes wrong when she starts to blank him and - in the final scene of the last series - sees her turn to the camera and address the audience, saying ".my turn".

Kevin Spacey is the subject of multiple allegations of sexual assault and sexual misconduct.

Currently, Kevin is still in trouble with the police as a result of the allegations, and the LAPD and the police of London kicked off an investigation. As it was previously reported, Anthony Rapp was the very first person to accuse Kevin of misconduct.

"I didn't really - I didn't know the man".

"And at the same time, the older I get, the more I can't believe it. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is".

Spacey was dropped from his role in House Of Cards and had his part cut out of the Ridley Scott film All The Money In The World after more than a dozen other men came forward with similar claims.

Spacey, now 58, said he did not remember the encounter but apologised for any "inappropriate drunken behaviour". Spacey apologized to Rapp but said he had no memory of the incident. "I know that there are other stories out there about me and that some have been fueled by the fact that I have been so protective of my privacy".
