Jeffrey Tambor actor who plays the lead role on Amazon’s “Transparent,” say’s he will not be returning for the series fifth season. This information comes right after Tambor was accused of sexual misconduct against transgender actress Trace Lysette.
“Playing Maura Pfefferman on Transparent has been one of the greatest privileges and creative experiences of my life,” Tambor said to Deadline.
“What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago.”
“I’ve already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue,”
“Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don’t see how I can return to Transparent.”
