Since the case of Harvey Weinstein, of the many accusations of harassment and even sexual assault do not cease to see the light of day. Last weekend, this is Audrey Wauchope, a former writer of the Brothers Scott, who revealed an anecdote about Mark Schwahn, the creator of the series.
“To say that we have left this work demoralized and confused would be an understatement. One of the first things we were told, is that the showrunner was recruiting women writers on their physical appearance. That was why you were there : because he wanted to fuck you, “she told, stating that the latter had the habit of “sticking” to the women. Since then, eighteen other employees of the series are taken over by denouncing the behavior of Mark Schwahn in a letter published in Variety.
Testimonies that have prompted several male stars of the series to express it. “I applaud every woman in the series, every woman on Earth, who resist an abusive system. I am with them. I would encourage anyone to do their best to preserve working conditions, ” wrote James Lafferty, who has camped Nathan Scott. And the actor added : “I hope that The Brothers Scott will continue to spread a message of hope, grace and love to the fans who remain loyal to the series for so long. ”
