Anthony Rapp Breaks Silence Over Kevin Spacey Trial Loss

Over the past few years, there’s been a seismic change in the entertainment industry. The #MeToo movement started a larger conversation about powerful men in the film world, with a number of accusations being made regarding sexual misconduct. Actor Anthony Rapp was the first person to make an accusation against Kevin Spacey, leading more to come out and Spacey being fired from his job on House of Cards. The two faced off in court recently, and Rapp has broken his silence over losing the trial against the Seven actor. 

Back in October of 2017, Star Trek: Discovery star Anthony Rapp did an interview with Buzzfeed, alleging that Kevin Spacey had made advances toward him in 1986 when he was just 14. While Spacey is facing four counts of assault in the U.K., Rapp filed his own civic case against the 63 year-old actor, aiming for a whopping $40 million. Ultimately the courts ruled on the side of Spacey. Rapp spoke publicly about this for the first time at an event hosted by the media company The Meteor (Via Variety). The RENT icon was quoted, saying:

A courtroom is not a safe space for trauma, that is for sure. So I also deeply understand why some people don’t pursue that angle. What is proof? How do you prove things? Part of the movement is so much about honoring a story, listening, being a mirror, being holding, healing. You speak about these things. Those things aren’t necessarily anything that a courtroom is at all interested in. It is not the only avenue. It is an avenue. I did want to avail myself of the opportunity to see what might be possible.
