Congratulations Dan on this very comprehensive interview. I am happy that Kevin got the opportunity to address the accusations that have been leveled against him. He certainly did not try to make out that he was a saint. I appreciated his vulnerability. I hope that justice will finally prevail for him. Cancel culture is insidious. I don't know if it is possible to remove it from our lives now but when someone is falsely accused there needs to be some greater punishment for the accuser to make this practise less appealing.

If you think Spacey, with his fame and money is vulnerable- what about his victims? Think of yourself as a woman faced with creepy men . He is far from innocent

So because he is famous he is guilty? Did you watch the interview? It seems not. Much more interesting for you to join the smear mob than face facts, evidence and truth. People like you are just a danger for justice and for society in general.

How do you know.

Have you got evidence.

If you have you need to hand it in..

As a woman who has had faced 'creepy men', I don't feel the need to trash their life, ruin their career and almost bankrupt them. Shove him off and move on. What is with the drama here?

What victims? He has been found innocent in every court of law?

Outstanding interview Dan,well done !.It's so important to hear from Kevin without the usual media bullies just out for themselves .It's such a terrible thing when 'lawfare' puts an enforced silence on anyone who finds themselves being targeted in this terrible way . Very best wishes

Brilliant interview Dan! Kevin, you will always be a brilliant actor and no-one can take that away from you. This 'MeToo' action has led to so many people jumping on the bandwagon in the hopes to make some money, regardless of the truth, it's despicable. This 'cancel culture' is so, so wrong as is this 'woke culture' and they are ruining peoples lives just because they are getting away with it. They are not based on actual truth but on their truth' which is simply an opinion. Anyone can spin a story to make it look 'amazing' or 'wicked', ie: Markle with her 'people in Africa reacted to her wedding in the same way they did when Nelson Mandela was released', and we all know there is no-one as good as Markle at using the 'woke cancel culture'. Imagine asking someone to remember an incident from nearly 50 years ago when you were a youngster doing anything and everything that youngsters do (I can't remember what I did yesterday!!!!). There really should be time limits on these things because no-one can remember all the details that far back (unless you have a photographic memory). I, for one, can't wait to see you back on the big screens Kevin.

Well said Margaret. This cancel / woke culture has utterly and totally gotten out of hand , what’s worse as you say, it’s being fed and nurtured by those who seek to control everyone and everything, no-one’s safe from the onslaught they face if targeted, especially! if that person is someone in the public eye. As for (Markle) she TOTALLY deserves to be held accountable for all she has said and done in the past. She’s a a black destructive soul, who has and will continue to use and abuse but no one, not even MSM will address the vitriol of abuse she hurls towards others except Lady C, Dan and Piers.

The C4 letter seemed to be a similar story for multiple accounts, makes C4 look desperate for a quick buck to toil the dirt over one more time.

I also think that some of it was young larking about taken out of context from Kevin's younger days to reinforce the accusations he later faced.

I hope C4 realise that this interview was his reply and they are held to account for any spin C4 put on it later as Dan's interview is where C4 cannot touch or influence.

Except all of this was revealed in 2017.

When I read your bio, you seem very implicated in smearing about Spacey: ''Female. PhD educated. Author. Hit on by too many creeps like Spacey but as an undergrad with professors in positions of power''.

So, if you have something to say and some evidence against him speak now. Otherwise use your PHD education to think about the concepts of due process vs cancel culture. Thank you.

Wow! We watched this cast to the TV, so it was great to see Dan back on TV at 9pm. It was a privilege to be among the first to see this interview with Kevin Spacey.

The world has been missing an actor who's at last been given an opportunity to tell his side of things, in an interview that I feel was more honest, sensitive and uncensored than anything the MSM would/could put out these days. Kevin said we are his jury. I will now be looking out for his films, since he clearly has a sense of humour and is quite a character!

So, why do people such as the 'Contributors' referred to, all seem to think it's ok to use famous people to forward their own futures? In cases like Kevin's, they're ruining the cherished and built up careers of those they step on.

Poor Kevin. He’s still traumatised. You can tell

And what of his victims? Think of them as women then Spacey is a creep

Should we mention that this profile Erica3 has just been created to smear on this article. This fake profile has only ONE READ ... this one.

Back of the net Dan! Nice one!

The media is after him.

We all know what the media is like.

This is exactly what they do to Donald Trump, Russell Brand, Julian Assange and more...

I do not watch WOKE channel 4

Trump? Brand? Clearly you support the abuse of innocent people. Says it all

You have proof then.

You did not mention Julian Assange, The media said he was a rapist.

Jimmy Savile the Catholic priests your media and the BBC what you believe in kept

this from us for years.

This was a brilliant interview Dan, he came across as a genuine honest person and it’s heartbreaking to see what this has done to him. Hope he gets back to what he loves!!

That interview has put my mind to rest about any doubts I worried about. 👏

And his victims? Or are you happy with men grabbing your tits? Or worse?

Above, typical cancel vulture at work. Smearing on every comment here.

And yes Ericas, I'll be also commenting every single of your comment, just to give you an idea of you what it feels like.

Why don’t you just get over yourself? You’ve had your say, stop banging on about if it were a woman…it’s not, so enough, move on! Commenting on every third statement or so will not make your opinion any less tedious. Give your gums a rest!!!

Excellent! Can’t wait to watch!

Yes he should be given a second chance but he shouldn’t go back to Hollywood.

He should go to more independent studios who normally might not have been able to afford him or somewhere like the daily wire for a film or two so they can continue making alternative films to Hollywood.

Great in depth interview. Thank you to both Dan and Kevin. Really brave and honest. Yes, we are all a little mad when young but shouldn’t have to wear sackcloth and ashes for a lifetime! The public must learn to be less squeamish and prudish. Did the liberation of the 1960s ever really happen?

I am still an unwavering fan of Kevin because he is an amazing actor and I believe jealousy is the worst instigator of evil behaviour there is. It’s not forbidden twice in the 10 commandments for nothing!

I read jealousy in this case from the very start. Of course, we now know how much corruption there is in cancel culture and how sly the offenders are who pay false witnesses but I feel Kevin is right about the jealousy behind employing cancellation. Dan has had experience of this too.

I really want to see Kevin back at work, especially as an actor. He is the only American who can do Shakespeare superbly! We miss him. He has been traduced, slandered and libelled. He needs proper compensation and apologies. His audience and fans are still out there rooting for him! A good PR team is needed!
