Judith Light is still reeling from Jeffrey Tambor’s departure from Transparent following the claims of sexual harassment. The 60-year-old actress claimed she has “not spoken to him,” since the charges first came out.
When speaking with Entertainment Tonight on the 4th of March, Judith said everyone is still a “little shell-shocked,” by what had happened.
The Transparent star, who portrays the matriarch, Shelly Pfefferman, stated they are hopeful the show will go on. She added, “we’re looking at the fifth season, and we’ll see when we’re gonna shoot that. So, we’ll see.”
Back in February, Amazon Studios announced that they would part ways with the 73-year-old Emmy Award winner who had been accused of misconduct by Trace Lysette.
Trace was a reoccurring guest on the popular series. Following the wake of the charges, Jeffrey vehemently denied all wrongdoing, and while he may have been challenging to work with at times, the actor stated he never was a “predator.”
Sources said to Deadline that an internal investigation took place on the set of Transparent, but the results were never revealed. However, the insider shared that Tambor’s behavior “could not be justified or excused under scrutiny.”
Back on the 15th of February, Jeffrey, who won an award for his portrayal of the character, Maura Pfefferman, said he was “profoundly disappointed” in Amazon’s handling of the situation.
He added it was a result of an unfair mischaracterization of him as someone who would harm his fellow castmates intentionally.
Furthermore, in Jeffrey’s defense, he conceded that he profoundly apologizes if his behavior was ever misconstrued maliciously. The real heartbreak for Jeffrey is the show’s future was in jeopardy, considering its harmonizing effect on the culture at large.
