Sexual harassment allegations against Gary Goddard
In November 2017, Anthony Edwards wrote an essay on the website Medium, alleging that Hollywood director, Broadway producer and theme park designer Gary Goddard sexually assaulted him when he was 12 years old. He claimed that Goddard was a “mentor, teacher and friend” but alleges that he “molested by Goddard”.
These allegations have been strongly denied by Gary Goddard’s spokesperson who said,
“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. As to the allegations that Mr Edwards made in his post today, I can unequivocally deny them on Gary’s behalf.
“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.
“The post by Anthony, as well as many of the news stories today reference a legal claim made against Gary approximately four years ago regarding sexual harassment. The complaint was demonstrated to be fraudulent as it was completely fabricated, and ultimately withdrawn by the complainant and his attorneys”.
