Robin Wright said she never saw any red flags surrounding her “House of Cards” costar Kevin Spacey, whose accused predation on their series contributed to several men coming forward with similar accounts against the actor.
On Monday’s “Today” show, Wright told Savannah Guthrie that she and others working on the Netflix show were “all surprised, of course, and ultimately saddened” upon hearing the allegations against Spacey.
“Was there any kind of red flag, or anything that would have made you think this was possible?” Guthrie asked the actress.
“Kevin and I knew each other between action and cut, and in between setups where we would giggle,” Wright said. “I didn’t really — I didn’t know the man. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is.”
Wright added that her on-set relationship with Spacey was “respectful, professional,” and that the actor was “so great” with her.
“That’s the only thing I feel that I have the right to talk about,” Wright said.
There has been no contact between the “House of Cards” husband and wife since accusations against Spacey surfaced.
“I don’t even know how to reach him,” Wright told Guthrie.

The accusations against Spacey came in the thick of the unprecedented outspokenness from Harvey Weinstein’s victims. Spacey was fired from the flagship Netflix Original, and his character was written out of the plot.
Production began on the show’s fifth and final season this spring, placing Wright and her fan-favorite character President Claire Underwood at the center.
Eight employees filed sexual harassment claims to Netflix and “House of Cards” production company MRC last November, CNN reported at the time. One unnamed production assistant said he was assaulted after being assigned to drive Spacey to and from set, and later told the outlet he was “cornered” by the actor in his trailer.
In addition to misconduct on the show, Spacey was accused of making advances on Anthony Rapp, a Broadway and film actor, when the latter was under 18.
Spacey received five primetime Emmy nominations for his role as the scheming Frank Underwood on “House of Cards,” and one Golden Globe for best actor in a TV drama series. While he’s largely been exiled from Hollywood, his indie “Billionaire Boys Club” is set to his theaters in August.
Wright will star as the sole series lead for the last run of “Cards,” alongside Greg Kinnear, Diane Lane, Cody Fern and regulars Michael Kelly and Constance Zimmer.
