Actor Anthony Rapp alleged Sunday that Spacey had made sexual advances when they were 14 years old and 26 years old, respectively. "As previously scheduled, Kevin Spacey is not working on set at this time", the statement read.

In an interview published on Monday, Rapp told BuzzFeed News that Spacey had invited him to his apartment for a party in 1986.

"But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years", Spacey tweeted. Netflix is reportedly weighing different concepts for a spinoff of the hit show.

The Old Vic theatre in London is expressing "deep dismay" at the sexual assault allegations made against Kevin Spacey, who led the company for 11 years.

"House of Cards" was an early binge-watching favorite and proved that streaming services could contend with more traditional networks when it came to accolades, racking up nine Emmy nominations in its first season.

Less than a day after announcing that House of Cards would end after the upcoming sixth season, Netflix has suspended production on the new season indefinitely.

On Monday, the companies announced that the next season of "House of Cards" would be its last. I'm beyond horrified to hear his story.

Rapp, now 46, said he came forward after allegations against Harvey Weinstein sparked conversations about sexual abuse and harassment in the entertainment industry.

He went on to state: 'That said, I take reports of such behavior seriously and this is no exception.

There is also a chance that Spacey's character was never meant to be in the sixth season, with his character's health an issue throughout the five previous seasons of the show and the actor now in the middle of shooting a Gore Vidal biopic. He had never disclosed his sexuality before but said Rapp's story encouraged him to speak.
