In a statement posted to Twitter on Thursday, Lysette described a disturbing encounter she says she had with Tambor while filming Season 2 of the Amazon dramedy in which Tambor cornered her and thrusted his penis against her body.

In a 2015 interview with GLAAD, Lysette said at first she tried to keep her trans identity a secret in the acting world, but chose to come out after landing her Transparent role, thanks to support from her "on set trans family".

He continued: "I am deeply sorry if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being sexually aggressive or if I ever offended or hurt anyone". She has not given an additional statement in light of the new allegations, but with Transparent now not in production, there are talks of writing Maura out of the upcoming fifth season. She would come home wrecked and stressed.

"He came in close, put his bare feet on top of mine so I could not move, leaned his body against me, and began quick, discreet thrusts back and forth against my body", she wrote. "But the fact is, for all my flaws, I am not a predator and the idea that someone might see me in that way is more distressing than I can express", the actor, also known for "Arrested Development" and "The Hangover", said.

Doctors Announce First Ever Child Death by Marijuana
Similarly, the National Institute of Health reports that there is now "insufficient evidence" to link marijuana use and death. The boy's heart rate at the hospital hit 156 beats per minute, then plunged to 40 beats per minute and then fell silent.

In response to Lysette's claim, Tambor admitted that he can be "volatile and ill-tempered" to work with, but denied being a "predator".

Tambor is the latest high profile Hollywood figure to be accused of misconduct in a wave that began when dozens of sexual harassment allegations were reported last month against film mogul Harvey Weinstein, who is being investigated for rape by police departments in London, New York and Los Angeles. The actress, according to The Hollywood Reporter, alleges that the star made lewd remarks toward her and tried to touch her inappropriately on the set of their hit Amazon series.

"It's vital that the show's creator, show runner and its studio re-center the narrative of "Transparent" on the experiences of the other trans characters and family members audiences have grown to love on the series", Lysette wrote.

"I am aware that a former disgruntled assistant of mine has made a private post implying that I had acted in an improper manner toward her", he said in a statement. Lysette said that she and Billings laughed off Tambor's remark "because it was so absurd". "We are cooperating with the investigation into this matter". She moved from OH to NY, and began pursuing in acting in 2008, after trying first to be a model and hairstylist. "Now I find myself accused of behavior that any civilized person would condemn unreservedly", he told USA Today. Lysette also recalled an exchange later into production on season two. The star acknowledged he has not "always been the easiest person to work with" in a statement to Variety on Thursday. But I have never been a predator - ever.
