British actor Noel Clarke, best known for his role in the TV series Doctor Who, is accused of harassment, indecent behavior and intimidation.
According to the Guardian newspaper, 20 women who worked with Clark at different times – in the stage from 2004 to 2019, accused him of sexual harassment, inappropriate behavior and comments on the set, violation of professional ethics and intimidation.
The 45-year-old actor denied all accusations and noted that he had never come across jeremiads in his own address in 20 years of working in the cinema, and also asked for forgiveness.
“If anyone who worked with me ever felt clumsy and humiliated, I apologize for that,” Noel said. He testified that he would defend himself against false accusations.
After the publication of the materials of the publication, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) decided to suspend Clark’s membership in the academy. The newspaper added that on the eve of the BAFTA award ceremony for the Doctor Who star, the academy received several anonymous notices and reports of accusations against the artist, but these did not include evidence.
In addition, the British Film Academy has temporarily revoked the Clarke Award for Peeking Contribution to United Kingdom Cinema until further notice.
