Robin Wright Opens Up About Kevin Spacey Sexual Harassment Allegations

"That's the only thing I feel I have the right to talk about".

House of Cards executive producers are Melissa James Gibson, Frank Pugliese, Robin Wright, David Fincher, Joshua Donen, Dana Brunetti, Eric Roth, Michael Dobbs and Andrew Davies. I didn't really - I didn't know the man. Soon after, several others accused the actor of sexual assault or harassment including Harry Dreyfuss.

Wright told Today's Savannah Guthrie that the show's cast and crew were "surprised, of course, and ultimately saddened" after learning of the sexual misconduct allegations, but noted she was "so thankful" they were able to forge ahead and finish filming the series without Spacey.

It is due to air its final eight episodes later this year on Netflix. Since then, he has all but left public life but after stalling production on the show for a number of weeks, Netflix announced the would continue, with Wright taking over the storyline. It will feature a different look, one without former star Kevin Spacey. She was not as powerful as Spacey, but she had enough power to say something if any part of what CNN alleged about that set was true.
