Prosecutor Anthony Rapp says he ‘never wanted a career like Kevin Spacey’s’

Anthony Rapp said he “never wanted a career like Kevin Spacey’s” but it was his “duty” as an actor to watch the Hollywood star’s work.

r Rapp said he was “proud and grateful” for his career as he continued to testify on the third day of a civil lawsuit in New York.

He claims he was the victim of an “unwanted sexual advance” by Spacey at a party in 1986 at the age of 14, an accusation the actor has “categorically” denied.

Returning to the witness stand on Tuesday, Mr Rapp said that despite the alleged experience, he had seen Spacey in many films, as well as television and theatrical performances.

“I’m an actor and I love films – these films have been celebrated and won awards,” he said.

“I felt like part of my job was seeing them, I knew he was in them so I could prepare.

“I felt like it was my duty as a fellow actor, as a person, as a part of this community — I had to put it aside.”

Mr. Rapp is next faced with questions from Spacey’s attorneys.

He testified for the first time on Friday afternoon, when the trial began. It is expected to last around two weeks.

The trial will be held in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York and will be presided over by Judge Lewis A. Kaplan.
