Stephen Collins' Talent Agency Severs Ties Over Molestation Scandal (Exclusive)
The actor has lost numerous roles and resigned from the SAG-AFTRA board this week
Stephen Collins has been dropped by his Hollywood talent agency.
The 7th Heaven actor had been represented by the Agency for the Performing Arts, based in Beverly Hills. But APA and Collins' lead agent Jeff Witjas severed ties with him on Friday evening, less than a week after the release of a recording in which Collins allegedly admits to molesting young girls.
A rep for APA confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that it has stopped representing him after a five-year relationship but declines to comment further.
The move is the latest fallout from the release of the recording by TMZ on Tuesday. The actor was dropped from roles in the Seth MacFarlane comedy Ted 2 and in the current season of ABC's Scandal. In addition, he resigned his position on the SAG-AFTRA board.
Syndicated reruns of 7th Heaven have also been pulled by UPTv and TV Guide network.
