F. Murray Abraham Dismissed from “Mythic Quest” Over Sexual Misconduct Allegations
Award-winning actor F. Murray Abraham, known for his roles in “White Lotus” and “Homeland,” was reportedly dismissed from Apple TV+’s “Mythic Quest” following allegations of sexual misconduct.
While the details of his departure remained undisclosed until recently, a new Rolling Stone article reveals that it was prompted by two incidents involving harassment of female cast or crew members.
The report claims that Abraham received a warning after the first incident and was instructed to maintain distance from certain female co-stars. However, when show creator and star Rob McElhenny learned of a subsequent occurrence, Abraham was let go from the series.
Abraham portrayed C.W. Longbottom, the pompous head game writer at the fictional Mythic Quest headquarters. His departure took effect at the beginning of the show’s third season, and a farewell scene for his character was incorporated into the storyline. McElhenny spoke to Variety, describing the scene as “a really fitting tribute to him.”
In response to the allegations, Lionsgate, the production company behind “Mythic Quest,” issued a statement to TMZ: “We take allegations of misconduct seriously and investigate them thoroughly. As a matter of corporate policy, we do not discuss personnel actions.”
