After being accused of sexual misconduct, Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard says he has fired his agency

The Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard said that he fired the agent who was accused in sexual misconduct. Tyler Grasham was Finn Wolfhard’s agent in 2017, and was later accused by other young actors of sexual assault.

Wolfhard was just 14 when he learned about the charges and fired Grasham, his agent.

Wolfhard stated to WaPo that he replied as follows: “Oh, please fire him.” This is completely absurd.

According to Finn Wolfhard, he fired Tyler Grasham in 2017 after he was accused of sexual misconduct.

In a recent interview, the now-18-year old actor talked about how he made the decision to act when he was just 14 years old. He was in the middle of the spotlight with “It” season two and “Stranger Things,” and he spoke candidly about his experience.

Wolfhard stated that it was impossible to get personal with something like this. “Yes, but I have met him and he is a wonderful sweetheart.” There’s no turning back when something so terrible and horrible happens. When I discovered the truth, I thought, “Oh, please fire him.” It’s totally ridiculous. I felt terrible for those who were wronged.

The Hollywood Reporter ranked Grasham as a “prominent agent” at the APA talent agency in 2017. As the #MeToo movement brought allegations of sexual misconduct to the forefront, three men recognized (and one anonymous complainant), spoke out about their experiences with Grasham.

After publishing his tale on social media, the first complainant, actor-turned-filmmaker Blaise God be Lipman, spoke with The Hollywood Reporter, alleging that Grasham had gotten him drunk and sexually abused him when he was around 17 or 18 years old.

Insider reached to Grasham for comment but he didn’t respond immediately.

Grasham was immediately placed on administrative leave after the second accuser was made public. He was fired from the APA within hours of Wolfhard having dropped him as his agent. The APA conducted an internal review and told The Wrap that “corrective actions” were taken. However, it did not have any further comment.

Los Angeles District Attorney had, however, decided not to press charges.

According to The Wrap, two of the four claims against him were found to be beyond the statute of limitations. One was dismissed because of lack of evidence and one was sent by The Wrap to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office for possible filing as misdemeanor.

Wolfhard signed with the CAA talent agent since then.
