"We will continue to work with MRC [Media Rights Capital studio] during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show". Spacey has also been dropped by his publicist and talent agency, CAA as allegations continue emerge. Netflix said it will also not be involved in an upcoming movie featuring Spacey.

In an interview with BuzzFeed, actor Anthony Rapp said he attended a party at Spacey's NY apartment in 1986, when he was 14.

British police are investigating Spacey over an alleged assault which took place in 2008.

News that the production of the show's sixth season was put on a halt on Tuesday.

It was a stunning fall for an actor, who chilled and thrilled audiences in equal measure in roles such as corrupt USA president Frank Underwood in House of Cards, a midlife-crisis-ridden father in American Beauty, and as a serial killer in Seven.

The actor wrote a lengthy post Sunday in response to Rapp's revealing Buzzfeed interview, which was published earlier that evening.

The employees who worked with Spacey on the set of House of Cards told CNN that the star created a toxic work environment.

Since early October close to 100 women have accused the disgraced Hollywood producer of misconduct ranging from harassment to rape, unleashing a torrent of accusations against a growing list of rich and powerful men from politics to the art world. He said, in part, that he did not remember trying to seduce 14-year-old Rapp, but that he apologized sincerely for "what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior".

The Old Vic theater, where Spacey served as artistic director between 2004 and 2015, distanced itself from the actor. The man said: "I told him, 'I don't think I'm ok with this, I don't think I'm comfortable with this".
