The accused actor commented on the allegation of sexual neglect against him while he was characterized as his "House of Cards" alter-ego Frank Underwood.
Kevin Spacey broke his silence on Monday with a bizarre video address that sees the actor defending himself against the many accusations against him while he was character as his entertaining shameless character of Cards character, Frank Underwood.
The ill-timed video titled "Let Me Be Frank" was shared from Spacey's official Twitter account as the news broke that the rogue actor would be banned from sexual abuse and would be arrested in Massachusetts January 7th. The alleged attack on a teenage victim took place at a Nantucket bar in July 201
In the video, Spacey assumes the southern accent, silence, and fourth engraving style of Frank, the character he played in five seasons on House of Cards to talk directly to the camera. The Netflix political thriller, star player Robin Wright, wrote Spacey out of his sixth and last season after he was fired over mounting sexual assault claims. The series, which he previously produced produced, killed his character of the screen; The streaming giant also officially buried Francis J. "Frank" Underwood at a burial ground in South Carolina, where fans can pay their respect.
The video marks Spacey's first public comment since his first and widely criticized response to the claims of actor Anthony Rapp in October 2017 at the height of the #MeToo movement. The actor used the declaration of excuse to also come out as gay.
Spacey is still under investigation in Los Angeles and in England for other alleged sexual assaults.
"I know what you want. You want me back," Spacey, wearing a santa apron, says in the three-minute monologue posted on Monday. In addition to defending himself against a "charge without trial", the actor also refers to his fate: "All this presumption created such an unsatisfactory ending and to believe it could have been such a memorable sendoff." I can promise you this. If I didn't pay the price for the things we both know I did, I'd definitely not pay the price for the things I didn't do. " He ends the video by saying," Conclusions can deceive. Miss me? "
