Robin Wright is finally speaking out on her relationship with Kevin Spacey, as the award-winning show “House of Cards” soldiers on without him.
In her first televised interview about the sexual-assault scandal that resulted in the firing of “House of Cards” co-star Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright told the “Today” show’s Savannah Guthrie Monday that she didn’t know the version of her former co-star that was capable of committing his alleged crimes.
But Wright declined to say whether she thought he should’ve been fired from “House of Cards,” the Netflix show they starred in together for five seasons before Netflix cut ties with the actor over allegations that he sexually assaulted then-teenage actor Anthony Rapp.
“I think we were all surprised, of course, and ultimately saddened. We forged ahead and I think we were all thankful that we were able to complete the series as planned,” she told Guthrie. “We were coworkers, really. We never socialized outside of work. Respectful, professional relationship. He was so great with me, he was never disrespectful to me, so that’s my personal experience, that’s the only thing I feel I have the right to talk about.”
I haven’t heard from him and I don’t even know how to reach him,” she continued. “Kevin and I knew each other between action and cut, and in between setups where we would giggle. I didn’t really … I didn’t know the man. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is.”
