It took less than a week for two-time Oscar victor Kevin Spacey to go from admired stage, TV and film star to a pariah, under investigation by the police and fired from his Emmy-winning role in "House of Cards".

A young production assistant who won't reveal his name told CNN Spacey exhibited unwanted sexual behavior toward him during those first years of filming.

In an interview with BuzzFeed, actor Anthony Rapp said he attended a party at Spacey's NY apartment in 1986, when he was 14.

The 58-year-old actor - who is seeking treatment after being accused of sexual misconduct by a number of men - is said to have made the set of the Netflix show a "toxic" environment because of his "predatory" behavior, which allegedly incused crude comments and nonconsensual touching.

I was in a state of shock. The unnamed staff member alleged Spacey, who was driving, put his hands down his trousers when they were just a few minutes away from the base.

"A former camera assistant said that while he was never harassed by Spacey, the actor's inappropriate behaviour often took place in public".

"We will continue to work with (producers) MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the production, and have nothing further to share at this time", the subscription channel said on Thursday. Now production of season 6 has been halted and the season six is in jeopardy.

"We have also decided we will not be moving forward with the release of the film "Gore", which was in post-production, starring and produced by Kevin Spacey." the statement concludes.

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos also claimed he fended off two "unpleasant" advances that "bordered on harassment" while at The Old Vic - the London theatre where Spacey was an artistic director from 2003-15. "I witnessed him groping men many times in all sort of different situations".

As a response to the report, Spacey tweeted a statement saying he didn't remember Rapp's alleged incident and apologising "for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour".

So far, eight people who worked on the House of Cards political drama have came forward about the actor assaulting them while on set.
