A second actor has accused Kevin Spacey of sexual harassment. Mexican actor, Robert Cavazos claims he encountered Spacey at the bar of London’s Old Vic Theatre, where he alleges Spacey tried to fondle him against his will. In a post on Facebook, Cavazos explained that he recalled a “couple of unpleasant encounters” with Spacey including being “squeezed” by him.
Written in Spanish, the detailed allegation further states that Spacey’s inappropriate behaviour was common knowledge among actors.
“It seems that it only took a male under 30 so that Mr Spacey would feel free to touch us. It was so common that it even became a local joke (in very bad taste).” Cavazos wrote, further explaining in the post the manner in which Spacey would approach young men. “Spacey invited them to meet him to ‘talk about their careers’. When they came to the theatre, the Lord had prepared a picnic with champagne on the stage, beautifully lit. Every story varied in how far the picnic came but the technique was the same.”
Spacey held the position of Artistic Director at the London theatre over an 11 year period. It is being claimed that staff turned a blind eye to the inappropriate sexual behaviour of the House Of Cards star.
