Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard has drawn attention to a sexual assault scandal that may otherwise have gone unnoticed after leaving his agency. The 14-year-old actor, who had been repped by Los Angeles agency AFA, allegedly broke ties after his former agent Tyler Grasham was fired Friday for allegedly sexually assaulting and harassing several young men.
On Monday, filmmaker and former child star Blaise Godbe Lipman shared a Facebook post accusing Grasham of misconduct and assault as part of the #MeToo campaign.
'Tyler Grasham, under the pretense of a business meeting regarding potential agency representation at APA Agency, fed me alcohol while I was underage and sexually assaulted me," he writes. "APA Agency has kept this man employed, working with kid actors. I find it incredibly difficult to believe they do not know of his predatory behavior, using his position within the company to prey on naive kids."
Other industry men have since come forward to share their own experiences with Lipman, prompting It star Wolfhard to leave AFA after the agent's firing on Friday.
In the days following his original post, Lipman has added more thoughts on his assault.
