Although I am disappointed with your decision to continue, I will volunteer in the UK as soon as it is settled and defend myself against these allegations, which I believe will prove my innocence.“, Added the actor.

Announcing the allegations in Britain, Rosemary Ainsley, head of the CPS’s special crime unit, said they were raised after reviewing evidence gathered by a Sofia police investigation.

Spacey, one of the world’s most famous actors, won an Oscar for his roles in “The Usual Suspects” and “American Beauty” and a Golden Globe for his role in the political thriller House Of Cards, whose last season was filmed without him.

The wave of accusations that ended his career came after the rise of the #MeToo movement, which was born out of the case of almighty American film producer Harvey Weinstein, who was sentenced to 23 years in prison in 2020.

Actor Anthony Rapp, whose credits include the Broadway musical “Rent” and its film adaptation, as well as the television “Star Trek: Discovery”, said Spacey harassed him when he was 14 at a party in the 1980s. .
