For the first time since the downfall of her former House of Cards co-star Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright is coming forward to talk about the actor after he was let go from the Netflix series following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

“Kevin and I knew each other between action and cut, and in between setups where we would giggle,” Wrights says in an upcoming NBC’s Today when asked if there was any red flag regarding Spacey’s alleged behavior. “I didn’t really—I didn’t know the man. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is.”

The accusations against Kevin Spacey started in October 2017, when actor Anthony Rapp claimed Spacey made advances toward him when he was only 14 and the two-times Oscar winner was 26. Several other men have since come forward and accused Spacey of sexual misconduct.

Following the revelations, Spacey was written out of the Netflix drama, with Wright’s character Claire Underwood replacing him as president, as a recent House of Cards sixth season trailer shows.

Despite many people in the industry and even fans of the show applauding the streaming giant’s decision to distance themselves from the actor, the absence of Frank Underwood from the show—a performance that won him a Golden Globe in 2015 along with numerous nominations— will definitely be significant in the series’ final batch of episodes.

Will House of Cards live in the shadow of the real-world reasons for Kevin Spacey not being there? Or will the ruthless Claire Underwood come to save the day?
