Jeffrey Tambor's Future on 'Transparent' Now Unclear

Jeffrey Tambor's Future on 'Transparent' Now Unclear

It will come as a surprise to many that Tambor intends to continue playing the transgender character, Maura Pfefferman, after he told the world last month he could not see himself returning to set amid sexual harassment allegations.

Tambor was accused of sexual harassment by his former personal assistant, a trans woman named Van Barnes, in a private Facebook post which was later circulated and reported on by the media. For instance, Mr. Tambor was widely believed to be leaving "Transparent" after he issued a statement saying, "I don't see how I can return".

But apparently, that statement was premature because now The New York Times reports that Tambor has not quit the series.

Publicist Allan Mayer offered a more extensive explanation in the wake of more accusations from makeu partist Tamara Delbridge. "But no final decision for next year has been made, either by Jeffrey or by Amazon", Tambor's rep said. "Transparent" creator Jill Soloway refuses to comment on Tambor's status while Amazon investigates the charges. After that, guest star Trace Lysette said that Tambor had behaved inappropriately around her. "What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago".

The Amazon series had reportedly been contemplating a future without its repeatedly awarded star-but now it's unclear whether Tambor will actually go the way of Kevin Spacey and Danny Masterson, or stick around for further seasons.

Transparent was renewed for a fifth season shortly before its fourth premiered this past September.

In a statement to Deadline, Tambor citied a "politicized atmosphere" as the reason for his autonomous departure.

Lysette claims that when she emerged from from wardrobe in a costume of a lingerie top and shorts for a scene with Tambor, he said: 'My God, Trace. And after Ms. Lysette's statement, he told The Hollywood Reporter that he was upset to "find myself accused of behavior that any civilized person would condemn unreservedly". I know I haven't always been the easiest person to work with. "But I have never been a predator - ever", Tambor continued.
