Anthony Edwards Accuses Producer Gary Goddard of Pedophilia, Molestation

Anthony Edwards Accuses Producer Gary Goddard of Pedophilia, Molestation

It says: 'I am responding on behalf of producer and writer Gary Goddard to allegations posted and made today by actor Anthony Edwards on the website Medium'.

Former director and Broadway producer Gary Goddard's spokesperson, Sam Singer, has denied that the Hollywood exec molested actor Anthony Edwards when the ER actor was just 12 years old. Anthony Edwards went on to say that pedophiles, "prey on the weak" and explained that his own father was emotionally unavailable due to undiagnosed PTSD from World War II. "I will not be bullied and I will continue to fight for victims of sexual abuse even when it happens in Hollywood".

Edwards was likely referring to a pair of 2014 lawsuits accusing Goddard of sexually abusing teenage males. Edwards had this to say.

"My vulnerability was exploited", Edwards wrote. "I was molested by Goddard, my best friend was raped by him - and this went on for years".

Edwards went on to explain why he did not come forward earlier and that he blamed himself for the incidents.

Edwards urged society to break the stigma of childhood sexual abuse and hopes the abused with stand up and tell their stories. With their sick form of control, abusers exploit a child's natural desire to bond.

The actor also reveals that he confronted Goddard at an airport 22 years ago, and that he "swore to his remorse and said that he had gotten help". I felt a temporary sense of relief. I say temporary because when Goddard appeared in the press four years ago for alleged sexual abuse, my rage resurfaced, ' Edwards said.

Egan had sued Ancier, Goddard, TV exec David Neuman and "X-Men: Days of Future Past" director Singer in April.

The motion was filed in federal court in Hawaii, where Egan had alleged that Goddard committed the abuse between in 1999 when Egan was 16. It seems highly unlikely we've seen the end of these allegations, and as uncomfortable and depressing as the seemingly endless supply of these horror stories may be, they're vitally important to changing a culture that both encourages and dismisses abuse. He alleges a friend was raped by the older man but he and his friends remained silent about the abuse. "By processing my anger in a safe place with a professional, I was finally able to have the conversation that I wish I could have had with my mom when I was 14".

Edwards said that a trait of child molestation was the feeling of being "deeply responsible" for the perpetrator's actions, although he was "fortunate" to have "access to therapy and fellow survivors" following the incidents.
