Stranger Things star leaves talent agency after sexual assault allegations against agent
Allegations were made against former agent Tyler Grasham.
Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard has left talent agency APA after sexual assault allegations against his former agent Tyler Grasham came to light.
14-year-old Wolfhard plays Mike Wheeler on the hit Netflix show.
As reported by E Online, earlier this week former child actor Blaise Godbe Lipman posted the allegations against the agent on Facebook. In the post Lipman alleged that ten years ago Grasham gave him alcohol while underage, and sexually assaulted him. A second man, editor Lucas Ozarowski, has also made allegations against the agent.
This comes a fortnight after The New York Times published multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against Harvey Weinstein.
Deadline reports that according to a source, the allegations are “the reason” for Wolfhard’s departure.
Wolfhard has been widely praised for the move.

When a fourteen year old knows what's the right thing to do.
