Kate Mara Says Kevin Spacey Sexual Misconduct Accusations Are ‘Very Shocking and Devastating’

Actress who starred on 13 episodes of “House of Cards” also says she had an “amazing experience” working with him

Kate Mara says the sexual misconduct accusations against fellow “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey to her are “very shocking and devastating” and says she had an “amazing experience” working on the show with him.

In an interview with The New York Times, Mara said, “I had a really amazing experience on that show for the 13 episodes I was on it.”

Spacey has not been served with criminal charges for any of the accusations made against him since actor Anthony Rapp accused him of assaulting him as a teenager, but it has cost the actor his career, losing his lead role on the Netflix series “House of Cards” while reshoots were ordered to replace his role in Ridley Scott’s “All The Money In The World” with Christopher Plummer. He has denied many of the accusations.

Robin Wright, who plays Claire Underwood (wife of Spacey’s Frank Underwood) in the series, has been at the forefront of the trailers and other campaigns for the final season of “House of Cards,” given that she is now the sole lead of the show. The season premieres this fall.

“Oh my God, I will tell you that from day 1, I’ve been waiting for Robin to take over!” Mara said. “There’s nobody like her.”

Mara also talked about Ryan Murphy’s upcoming new show, “Pose,” on which she stars alongside Evan Peters, Indya Moore, Jeremy McClain and Angelica Ross.

“It’s inspired by ‘Paris Is Burning,'” Mara said. “I’m excited to see all those women dancing [on the series], because if you go online or on Instagram and follow any of the ‘houses,’ it’s so incredible. Their actual vogueing, posing — whatever you want to call it — it’s an art form.”

She added, “It’s pretty mental how many characters we have, and it keeps growing with each episode. It’s so fantastic when you open a script and see all the characters’ names, and most of them are trans.”
