The Equalizer actor Chris Noth on the spot after facing numerous counts of women assaults. The actor has been chased from the CBS series The Equalizer, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
“Chris Noth will no longer film additional episodes of The Equalizer, effective immediately,” CBS and Universal Television reports. The platforms produces the series, said in a joint statement.
Noth will occur in one more episode of the show that has finalized creation.
Noth termination comes four days after THR published a story narrating testimonies from women assault counts against Noth.
The Equalizer actor Chris Noth charges
One woman said Noth s€xually assaulted her in 2004 in Los Angeles while the other claims he assaulted her in his New York apartment in 2015.
The pair of women revealed to THR “separately, months apart,” and do not know each other.
However, the press statements affected both of them, resulting in the recall of “painful memories of incidents” that transpired in Los Angeles in 2004 and New York in 2015. Noth denied the charges in a statement.
“The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false,” The Equalizer actor Chris Noth said.
“These stories could’ve been from 30 years ago or 30 days ago — no always means no — that is a line I did not cross. The encounters were consensual. It’s difficult not to question the timing of these stories coming out. I don’t know for certain why they are surfacing now, but I do know this: I did not assault these women,” he added.
The Equalizer production joined in a statement separating themselves from Noth.
In the series, Noth played William Bishop, lead character Robyn McCall’s (Queen Latifah) former CIA handler and long-time friend.
