‘Transparent’ Actress Accuses Jeffrey Tambor of Sexual Harassment

Actress Trace Lysette has accused Jeffrey Tambor of sexual harassment, marking the second accusation against the Emmy-winning Transparent star. Lysette said her costar made sexually charged comments to her during their time on the Amazon series and at one point “got physical.” In her statement, Lysette described that alleged incident: “I stood in a corner on the set as the crew reset for a wide shot. My back was against the wall in a corner as Jeffrey approached me.” She added, “He came in close, put his bare feet on top of mine so I could not move, leaned his body against me, and began quick, discreet thrusts back and forth against my body.” Amazon previously announced that it would investigate allegations of harassment by Tambor’s former assistant, Van Barnes. Amazon says Lysette’s allegations have been added to the investigation.
