Jeffrey Tambor quits Amazon series "Transparent" amid sexual misconduct allegations

Jeffrey Tambor is exiting the show Transparent- which he stars in as the lead- after sexual harassment allegations were made against him

Several allegations against actor Jeffrey Tambor have brought his role on the hit series Transparent into question, with a new report claiming writers are trying to find a way to take his character out of the show.

"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".

"Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don't see how I can return to Transparent", Tambor concluded.

Tambor has been accused of sexual harassment by two transgender women on the show.

Even before the first claims, Tambor's option for a Season 5 had not actually been picked up, sources tell Deadline.

Two women have come forward over the past few weeks to accuse Tambor of sexual harassment, including "Transparent" actress Trace Lysette and his former assistant, who Tambor said was disgruntled. "I want to attack you sexually".

Transparent writers had already begun working on the forthcoming fifth season, set to premiere in late 2018, when Barnes' allegation surfaced on November 8, and Soloway is now said to be open to figuring out a way to plot out Tambor's main character, Maura Pfefferman. "I have never been a predator-ever".

Later that same day, she claims that Tambor approached her and "leaned his body against me, and began quick, discreet thrusts back and forth against my body. I felt his penis on my hip through his thin pajamas", Lysette told Hollywood Reporter.

"Any abuse of power is inexcusable, but hearing the stories of Van and Trace have particularly shattered me", the transgender writer wrote on Instagram. "We can not let trans content be taken down" by Tambor, wrote Our Lady J, a writer and producer of "Transparent". Tambor had previously argued that Hollywood should give more transgender actors a chance, and said he would "not be unhappy" if he were the last non-transgender actor to play a transgender character. "I am appalled and distressed by this baseless allegation".

Whether and how Transparent can proceed without Tambor remains to be seen, as Amazon hasn't officially announced a fifth season for the show yet, despite wide expectations that the awards season regular would return. She also said she went to a bar with him and then only remembered waking up in her bed with him lying nude next to her.
