Mark Schwahn Suspended from The Royals After Sexual Harassment Claims

17 November 2017

Elizabeth Hurley has declared the sexual harassment allegations against The Royals creator Mark Schwahn a "shocking surprise", insisting she never witnessed anything inappropriate herself.

"To the women of The Royals, you are and always have been the beating heart and light of this show, and a light that will refuse to be put out", the British actor, 30, wrote on the microblogging platform. More than all of this, where we should all collectively have felt pride over jobs hard won and roles much loved, we felt undermined as artists and creatives.

"One Tree Hill" creator Mark Schwahn was suspended from "The Royals" on Wednesday after he was accused of "traumatizing" sexual harassment by more than a dozen actresses and crew members who previously worked with him. "Today you are stronger and braver than you've ever been allowed to think you are". "I know he did more but not to me so they're not my stories to share", Wauchope tweeted.

Austin Nichols, who played Julian Baker, tweeted: "I stand with all my OTH sisters".

"All of the female cast members of "One Tree Hill" have chosen this forum to stand together in support of Audrey Wauchope and one another".

Aaron Rodgers Returns to Practice After Collarbone Injury
But they all know if they don't do their job, then it won't matter if Rodgers is ready to return late in the season or not. Rodgers broke his collarbone against the Vikings on October 15 and had surgery a short time later.

"We also understood that no one was fully unaware", the letter continued. The lack of action that has been routine, the turning of the other cheek, is intolerable.

In her Twitter statement, Wauchope recalled that she was frequently subjected to unwanted touching by Schwahn (who she did not identify by name) during their time working on the show together. Many of us since have stayed silent publicly but had very open channels of communication in our friend group and in our industry, because we want Tree Hill to remain the place "where everything's better and everything's safe" for our fans; some of whom have said that the show quite literally saved their lives.

In her November 11 tweets, Wauchope discussed getting a job with Specter, her writing partner, on Tree Hill. "I hope we can find a way to continue this journey that I am so proud to be a part of, and as a result, set an example that I believe will lead to a 'new normal, ' the result that we, as people in this industry and every industry, as so desperately trying to achieve".

Wauchope wrote that female writers would try and make sure they didn't sit next to the showrunner so "as to not be touched".

Several of the former stars of the show including James Lafferty and Chad Michael Murray used their social media platforms to show support for the allegations against Mark. "Equality, safety and respect for all is the goal".

Schwahn now serves as showrunner on "The Royals".

E!, the network that hosts Schwahn's current show, The Royals, also released a statement, declaring: "We are monitoring the information carefully".

"The Royals" is produced by Lionsgate Television and Universal Cable Productions.

Schwahn hasn't responded to the allegations, and his representatives did not respond to a request for comment by Variety.
