Jeffrey Tambor is officially sacked


Jeffrey Tambor, star of Amazon hit series Transparent, has officially been axed from the show after being accused of sexual assault by a fellow actress. The decision comes after Trace Lysette accused the show’s frontman of sexually abusing her last year. Lysette’s claim was among other allegations made against Tambor, who played transgender woman Maura in the show and the bosses confirmed he won’t be back. Amazon said it had launched an investigation after the first allegation was made, and said it had added the second allegation to the “conversation”. Tambor’s alleged victim said to get rid of the problem and to continue the show. Creator Jill Solway thanked the actress for being courageous enough to speak out about the incident and added: “We are grateful to the many trans people who have supported our vision for Transparent since its inception and remain heartbroken about the pain and mistrust their experience has generated in our community.We are taking definitive action to ensure our workplace respects the safety and dignity of every individual, and are taking steps to heal as a family.”
