“We support the women who have contacted us and shared their painful experiences. We know this has to be a very difficult thing, and we express our appreciation for it. ”All three series stars put their names under the statement.

Noth had rejected the allegations as “categorically wrong”. “No always means no – that is a limit that I have not exceeded. The encounters were amicable, “the 67-year-old was quoted by the industry newspaper” The Hollywood Reporter “.

As the magazine reported on Monday, the actor was released from the cast of the CBS series “The Equalizer” due to the allegations against him. “Chis Noth will not shoot any more episodes with immediate effect,” the broadcaster CBS and the production company Universl Television told “The Hollywood Reporter”.

According to the magazine, Noth had accused two women of sexual assault. In the course of the remake of the HBO cult series “Sex and the City”, women between the ages of 40 and 31 turned to “The Hollywood Reporter”. Accordingly, the recent coverage of the series awakened the “painful memories” of the incidents in 2004 in Los Angeles and 2015 in New York.

Noth played Mr. Big, the husband of main character Carrie, on the HBO series. In the new edition “And Just Like That …”, which started a week ago, Noth is also there. dpa
