Following the sexual assault and harassment allegations against Kevin Spacey, the producers of House of Cards are rushing to figure out a way for the show to live on without Frank Underwood (Spacey), the show's lead.

House of Cards's production is now suspended to allow writers to rework the show's final season and write out Spacey's character, according to what sources have told The Hollywood Reporter. He asked that CNN refrain from describing what happened next in the vehicle, so as protect his identity. 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.

After arriving on set, the assistant says he helped Spacey's belongings to the trailer on set and while they were in the trailer, the actor had cornered him, blocking his exit and making inappropriate contact.

The production assistant - who didn't report the alleged incident but confided in a colleague - claimed he had previously complained to a supervisor about being sexually harassed and so it was arranged he would never be alone with the actor, but the alleged harassment stopped for long enough for him to feel comfortable with him again. "He would come in and massage my shoulders from behind or put his hands around me or touch my stomach sometimes in weird ways that in normal everyday conversation would not be appropriate".

British police are investigating Spacey over an alleged assault which took place in 2008. They said: "All the crew members commented on his behavior".

Rapp made those allegations public earlier this week, leading Netflix to shut down production of "House of Cards" in Maryland to review the situation and address concerns of the cast and crew. "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". In a statement, the Old Vic expressed "deep dismay" at the sexual assault allegations and said "inappropriate behavior by anyone working at The Old Vic is completely unacceptable". In it, he also came out publicly for the first time, acknowledging, "I choose now to live as a gay man".

Anonymous co-workers have since come forward with more allegations of sexual misconduct against Spacey.
