Spacey’s House of Cards Co-Star ‘Disappointed,’ ‘Dismayed’ by Allegations
“I’m really grateful for this moment we’re having in Hollywood right now.”
One of Kevin Spacey’s co-stars on House of Cards has broken her silence on the sexual misconduct allegations against the star. Rachel Brosnahan, who played Rachel Posner, feels disappointment according to The Independent:
When asked about how she felt when she heard that the actor, who played the co-lead character of President Frank Underwood in the hit political drama alongside Robin Wright, Brosnahan told Metro: “Disappointed. Dismayed. I’m really grateful for this moment we’re having in Hollywood right now. I’m so grateful for the people coming forward and speaking out, as a young woman in the industry, speaking out and empowering others to speak out.”
In the series, Brosnahan – who stars in new Amazon Prime series The Marvelous Mrs Maisel from the creator of Gilmore Girls – shared the majority of her screen time with Michael Kelly who plays Underwood’s aide Doug Stamper. She didn’t share a scene with Spacey across her three seasons.
The allegations against Spacey date back to the 80s. Upon the news, Netflix cut ties with the actor reportedly sending House of Cards showrunners on a “race against the clock” to rework scripts for the sixth and final season to remove his character.
Not only has it pretty much led to the end of the show, but director Ridley Scott decided to scrub Spacey out of his movie All the Money in the World and use Christopher Plummer instead.
