Cameron Boyce & 'Stranger Things' Star Fire Agent Over Sexual Assault Allegations

Twitter

Grasham was sacked by APA, but not before 14-year-old Wolfhard, who plays Mike Wheeler on the Netflix show, fired him, along with Descendants actor Cameron Boyce.

Tyler Grasham had been put on leave on Wednesday while APA talent agency investigated allegations of sexual assault, which first came to light after filmmaker and ex-child star, Blaise Godbe Lipman, shared a letter to Facebook and Instagram on Monday as part of the #MeToo campaign.

"Tyler Grasham has been terminated, effective immediately", a spokesperson for the agency APA said. "Descendants" Disney star, 18-year-old Cameron Boyce, soon followed and fired Grasham after the accusations were made. According to TheWrap, Wolfhard was Tyler Grasham's biggest client, but the actor is no longer signed with him or the Agency for the Performing Arts. It's not clear if he cut ties with APA.


Earlier in the week, Blaise Godbe Lipman (The Office, Weeds), accused Grasham of sexual assault that allegedly happened 10 years ago on Facebook. Lipman alleged the agent harassed him and spread rumors in an effort to tarnish his career. "But I didn't want to discourage him because of the [career] ramifications".

This week has seen the entertainment industry become very vocal bout the historical reputation of men in Hollywood abusing their power, namely the allegations surrounding Harvey Weinstein, the film producer sacked from his company following a series of sexual harassment accusations, some of which date back decades.

"We denounce this conduct in any form, and our sadness and support for the victims who have courageously come forward can not be understated".
