House Of Cards is moving ahead with its sixth and final season without Kevin Spacey, after he was accused of multiple instances of sexual harassment.
Robin Wright, who plays Claire Underwood, Spacey’s character’s wife and co-conspirator, has finally broken her silence on the scandal that saw him fired.
“I think we were all surprised, of course, and ultimately saddened,” Wright said in a new interview with NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie.

“We forged ahead, and we were so thankful that we were able to complete the series as planned.”
Wright distanced herself from her long-time scene partner, adding:
“I haven’t heard from him and I don’t even know how to reach him.”
“Kevin and I knew each other between ‘action’ and ‘cut,’ and in between set-ups where we would giggle. I didn’t know the man. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is.”
In season five, filmed before Spacey was accused of sexual misconduct, it looked like Claire Underwood was shaping up to become even more powerful than her husband. Now, with Spacey out of the picture, that future seems certain.
House Of Cards season six is expected to air on Netflix before the end of 2018.
