20 More Kevin Spacey Allegations Surface After Old Vic Theater Investigation
"The Old Vic says that the "cult of personality" around the actor and his stardom and status may have prevented people from feeling they could "speak up or raise a hand for help."
London's The Old Vic theater has concluded an investigation into its former artistic director Kevin Spacey, following a series of sexual harassment allegations against the actor. In a report it said that it found "allegations of a range of inappropriate behavior relating to Kevin Spacey" during his tenure, with "20 personal testimonies" being part of the probe.
"This investigation concluded that there have been 20 personal allegations of incidents relating to The Old Vic ranging from 1995 to 2013, with the majority [all but two] falling before 2009," the theater said. It added that its trustees had been unaware of the allegations and none were made by people who had been minors at the time.
Spacey was artistic director of the Old Vic from 2004 until 2015. The investigation, overseen by law firm Lewis Silkin, found that 16 staff members and four other people came forward with a number of allegations against Spacey.”*
