The man, who went by John in the BBC interview, says he met Spacey at a program in 1984 and came to visit him in NY a year later.

Netflix and Media Rights Capital confirmed the news to Deadline, explaining that they have "decided to suspend production on House of Cards season six, until further notice, to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew".

Montana is the second Hollywood star to make such allegations against Spacey.

And they had also originally denied that the sordid allegations made against Kevin Spacey are the reason, claiming that it was a decision made "months ago". The man said he spent the night at Spacey's apartment, but refused to share the actor's bed, and awoke on the sofa to find the actor's arms around him.

The allegation against Spacey comes as the entertainment industry is reeling from a series of sexual misconduct accusations made against powerful players in the business.

Rapp cited the dozens of Weinstein accusers as the reason he recounted his encounter with Spacey. I do not doubt there were more like him, but none so public and blatant.

New allegations of sexual misconduct have surfaced against actor Kevin Spacey, as questions mount over the fate of projects tied to the two-time Oscar victor.

Production on the sixth and final season of "House of Cards" has been halted after star Kevin Spacey was accused of sexual assault by an actor who claims he was a minor at the time of the alleged incident. "I feel for Mr. Rapp and I support his courage". "I paid for my drink and got away from him".

When asked about how the encounter made him feel, John responded: 'I was uncomfortable at best, traumatised at worst'. "As those closes to me know, in my life, I have had relationships with both men and women".

Spacey also announced that he was now living "as a gay man" but the Oscar winning actor has been widely criticised for choosing this moment to come out.

Spacey is also being heavily criticised for his freakish attempt to blame the fact that he was drunk for the sordid "sexual advance" on such a young boy. Spacey was not scheduled to work that day.

Rapp had originally told about the scary episode with Spacey (without revealing his name) all the way back in 2001.

However, a report published Wednesday in the Guardian claims that "a number of people" have contacted the publication with stories about misbehavior by Spacey during his time as artistic director at the Old Vic. There was no immediate reply to a request for comment from representatives for Spacey, who was artistic director from 2004-15.
