Actor Chris Noth has been dropped as a client by talent agency A3 Artists Agency, a day after sexual assault allegations were leveled at the former “Law & Order” and “Sex and the City” star.
Noth had only recently signed with A3 earlier this year. The actor was accused of rape by two women in separate incidents in a report published Thursday by the Hollywood Reporter. Noth has denied the allegations as “categorically false” and has said the incidents from 2004 and 2015 were consensual.
News of A3 parting ways with Noth was first reported by Deadline. A representative for Noth declined to comment other than to reiterate that the actor stands by his statement and his denial.
In a detailed report by The Hollywood Reporter, Noth is accused of sexual assault by two separate women, who spoke anonymously to the publication in order to protect their privacy. The women, who do not know each other, spoke under the pseudonyms Zoe, now 40, and Lily, now 31. Both women told THR that the renewed attention for Noth with “And Just Like That” brought up painful memories, prompting them to come forward with their stories. Lily first reached out to THR in August, and Zoe first spoke to the magazine in October, according to THR.
