Anthony Rapp, another actor, has filed sexual assault charges against Kevin Spacey, and now Kevin Spacey facing sexual assault charges, he is scheduled to appear in a US court. The 63-year-old actor “categorically refuted” the allegations, claiming he “did not possess any sexual interest or desire in Mr. Rapp at the time or since.” The claimed encounter took place in 1986.
