Tambor denied both women's claims, insisting that while "I haven't always been the easiest person to work with..."
In the aftermath of the new claims, Tambor said, "This is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago". "Transparent" creator Jill Soloway refuses to comment on Tambor's status while Amazon investigates the charges. But no final decision for next year has been made, either by Jeffrey or by Amazon, ' Allan Mayer, his publicist said to the New York Times.
Barnes, who is transgender, was the first to accuse Tambor of behaving inappropriately toward her in a private Facebook post.
Transparent Season 4 is now available on Amazon Prime. He is now being investigated by Amazon and the circumstances surrounded the claims that he sexually assaulted an actress on the show and a former personal assistant.
She claimed that the actor cornered her and thrust himself "back and forth against my body" before she pushed him off.
There's been a great deal of discomfort from some of the show's fans that a show that has been otherwise progressive in hiring trans actors is still ultimately led by a cisgender man, and the sexual misconduct allegations obviously amplify that inherent problem.
He was hit with a second accusation a week later, when Trace Lysette, who plays a transgender yoga instructor on "Transparent", said Tambor "got physical" with her on set, and pressed his body against hers while thrusting. I want to attack you sexually'.
She urged Amazon to 'remove the problem and let the show go on'.
Tambor said he did not recall the encounter, but that if he did kiss her, it was simply a good-natured goodbye to wrap up filming.
Tambor's nightmare began at the beginning of November (17), when his former assistant accused him of sexual harassment.
