Robin Wright Has Broken Her Silence Regarding Kevin Spacey.
In her first interview since allegations against Kevin Spacey were brought to public attention, Robin Wright—who plays Claire Underwood on House of Cards—is speaking about her former co-star.
“We were coworkers, really. We never socialized outside of work. [It was a] respectful, professional relationship,” she said Monday on NBC News’ Today show. She added that she and Spacey knew each other “between action and cut and in between setups,” where they would share laughs.
“I think we were all surprised, of course, and ultimately saddened,” she continued regarding finding out about the allegations. “We forged ahead and we were so thankful that we were able to complete the series as planned.”
The full interview with Wright and the rest of the cast will air around the final season’s fall premiere. Check out clips here.
