One of the young stars of the Netflix hit “Stranger Things” has dumped talent agency APA over allegations of sexual abuse. According to The Hollywood Reporter, 14-year-old Finn Wolfhard, who also appears in the recent blockbuster “It,” parted ways with agent Tyler Grasham.
“The move comes as Grasham is facing a string of claims that he sexually assaulted or acted inappropriately with young aspiring male actors, including actor-turned-filmmaker Blaise Godbe Lipman,” THR reports. “Grasham, a prominent agent at APA who also reps Hayley Orrantia, is currently on leave from the agency, sources confirm, while the company investigates the allegations.”
APA wouldn’t say much about the situation. THR quotes an agency spokesperson saying: “APA takes these allegations extremely seriously and is investigating this matter.”
THR notes: “It is understood that the agency has enlisted an independent, neutral investigator to research the claims. In light of the accusations, Grasham has set his Instagram to private and deleted his Facebook account.”
