Robin Wright has broken her silence on her former House of Cards co-star Kevin Spacey after he was fired from the series following allegations of sexual harassment and assault.
In a clip from an interview with Savannah Guthrie on NBC's Today that will be aired on Monday, Guthrie asked the actress if there was any "red flag" that could have alerted her about Spacey's alleged behaviour.
The 52-year-old Hollywood star implied that she did not socialize with Spacey outside of work and that she didn't really know him.
"Kevin and I knew each other between action and cut, and in between setups where we would giggle," she replied.
"I didn’t really – I didn’t know the man. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is."

Wright starred as Spacey’s on-screen wife, Claire Underwood, for five series of the political drama House Of Cards, and in the upcoming sixth and final run, it’s her character who will take centre stage as the President of the United States.

Production on the sixth season was suspended in October last year after Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of making a sexual advance towards him when he was 14.
Several House of Cards employees also accused Spacey of inappropriate behaviour, leading to Netflix officially cutting ties with the actor.
Police in London are currently investigating allegations of sexual assault which are made by men against Spacey. Spacey has denied the allegations.
