‘Stranger Things’ actor leaves agency after former rep is accused of sexual assault
Deadline reports that two men—one actor and one editor—stepped forward this week with allegations that APA agent Tyler Grasham sexually assaulted them while working together. In light of the chorus of Harvey Weinstein stories that have been dominating the news for weeks, the agency took those allegations seriously and conducted an internal investigation that resulted in Grasham being fired. In a statement to E! News on Friday evening, APA said he had been “terminated, effective immediately.”
The swift reaction, though, wasn’t enough for Wolfhard, who had been repped by Grasham. He left the agency, and according to an E! source, the allegations are the reason for his departure.
Adults on Twitter were heartened by Wolfhard’s show of solidarity.
