Amazon Studios states Transparent star Jeffrey Tambor won’t be on the series when it returns for its 5th season, triggering the Emmy winner to knock what he called incorrect allegations and the studio’s handling of the matter.
The choice, validated Thursday by an Amazon spokeswoman, followed the conclusion of an internal examination into sexual misconduct accusations.
” I am profoundly dissatisfied in Amazon’s handling of these incorrect accusations versus me,” Tambor said in a statement.
” I am a lot more disappointed in Jill Soloway’s unjust characterization of me as someone who would ever cause damage to any of my fellow cast mates. In our four-year history of collaborating on this unbelievable show, these allegations have actually NEVER been revealed or talked about directly with me or anyone at Amazon.”
Tambor stated he is delegated surmise that the investigation was flawed and prejudiced by a “toxic politicized atmosphere that afflicted our set.”
” As I have actually regularly specified, I deeply regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anybody and I will continue to vehemently protect myself,” he said.
The claims versus the star were made late in 2015 by Tambor’s former assistant and an actress on Transparent, which has to do with a transgender lady and her family.
Tambor rejected the accusations at that time however said that because of them he didn’t see how he might return to the show.
Series developer Jill Soloway said in a declaration that action was being required to guarantee the series’ office “respects the safety and self-respect of every person.”
Tambor, 73, won two Emmy Awards for his role as a retired teacher who is transgender and shifts late in life, and the effect that has on her grown children.
