Gary Goddard’s spokesperson has said that allegations made by actor Anthony Edwards are “false”.
Former director and Broadway producer Gary Goddard’s spokesperson, Sam Singer, has denied that the Hollywood exec molested actor Anthony Edwards when the ER actor was just 12 years old.
Writing for Medium, Edwards claimed that Goddard had molested him when he was a pre-teen. In his essay he said,
“I was molested by Goddard, my best friend was raped by him — and this went on for years. The group of us, the gang, stayed quiet.”
Goddard’s spokesman, Sam Singer said,
“As to the allegations that Mr. Edwards made in his post today, I can unequivocally deny them on Gary’s behalf.
“Gary first met Anthony more than 40 years ago. Gary was a mentor, teacher and a friend to Anthony, which makes this story all the more disturbing to him.”
He continued: “Gary played an important role in helping start Anthony’s acting career and acted as his personal manager. He has nothing but the greatest respect for Anthony as a person. Gary is saddened by the false allegations.”
Goddard himself has not issued a statement on social media.
