Amazon's 'Transparent' hasn't cut ties with Jeffrey Tambor yet

Transparent Trace Lysette Jeffrey Tambor

In response, Amazon launched an investigation, speaking to both members of the "Transparent" production and Tambor personally, per the studio's policy.

Tambor was accused of sexual harassment by his former personal assistant, a trans woman named Van Barnes, in a private Facebook post on November 8.

In a statement to Deadline, Tambor citied a "politicized atmosphere" as the reason for his autonomous departure.

On Wednesday, a rep for Jeffrey Tambor revealed that the actor may not be leaving Transparent after all.

Jeffrey Tambor has announced he will be leaving his role as matriarch Maura Pfefferman on Amazon's critically acclaimed drama Transparent following at least two separate claims of sexual harassment have been made against him. "What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago". After that, guest star Trace Lysette said that Tambor had behaved inappropriately around her. He later apologized to his co-star on that show, saying "I am deeply sorry if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being sexually aggressive or if I ever offended or hurt anyone".

She claimed that the actor cornered her and thrust himself "back and forth against my body" before she pushed him off.

"We have our own complications on Transparent", she said.

After the allegations emerged, Tambor seemed to be stepping down from the show.

But apparently, that statement was premature because now The New York Times reports that Tambor has not quit the series.

Amazon did not immediately respond to EW's request for comment for clarification on Tambor's status; Tambor's representatives said the actor had nothing more to add beyond his statement to the Times.

But in her statement, Ms. Lysette urged Amazon not to cancel "Transparent", but instead to "remove the problem and let the show go on". Amazon is now investigating misconduct allegations against the actor, and results of that effort are not yet known.
