BBC Pulls Ed Westwick Drama amid allegations of sexual assault

Share on Reddit



The BBC said Friday that it will not air upcoming Agatha Christie special “Ordeal by Innocence” while an investigation into actor Ed Westwick on allegations of sexual assault proceeds. Filming has been disrupted as well on another BBC series starring Westwick, “White Gold,” which is available on Netflix outside of the U.K.

“Ordeal by Innocence” was set to be one of the centerpieces of the BBC’s Christmas schedule. Meanwhile, filming started last month on Season 2 of BBC Two’s edgy 1980s-set comedy “White Gold.”

But the fate of the two projects is in question in light of the allegations made against Westwick. Former actress AurĂ©lie Wynn has accused him of raping her in July 2014. Kristina Cohen, who was the first to make a public allegation against the “Gossip Girl” star, has also said he assaulted her, and filed a police report against him with the Los Angeles Police Department.
