Jeffrey Tambor says he apologised to ‘Arrested Development’ co-stars for his sexual misconduct scandal

Tambor has denied the accusations

Arrested Development actor Jeffrey Tambor has revealed that he apologized to his co-stars during the height of his sexual misconduct scandal.

Tambor was officially dismissed from Amazon series Transparent earlier this year, after facing a series of sexual harassment allegations relating to his time on the show.

He was accused by personal assistant Van Barnes, with co-star Trace Lysette also coming forward to level accusations against Tambor.

It was confirmed earlier this month that Tambor will appear in the new season of Arrested Development despite the allegations, although the extent of his role is not known.

Speaking on Entertainment Weekly Radio, Tambor spoke of how he apologised to his Arrested Development co-stars when the scandal erupted.

“I sent an email around and said an apology to these people I love so much for the distraction, and you’ll be asked questions, and things like that,” he explained.

“I’m no longer playing Maura, I’m going to miss her very much, I’m going to miss that cast that I love so much, and I wish them all the best.

“But I’m here now as a fan of this wonderful, wonderful group. I’m a little nervous, but I am so excited about this — and such a fan of these people — it is our best season, and these actors just knock it out of the park.”

Earlier this year, Arrested Development’s David Cross said that he and ‘a number of’ his co-stars ‘stand behind’ Jeffrey Tambor.

“I can’t speak for everybody, but I know there are a number of us who stand behind him—from the limited amount we know, we stand behind Jeffrey—and I am one of them,” he said.
