Robert Kazinsky Was Sexually Harassed By a Hollywood Exec

Robert Kazinsky sits on the Brave New Warriors panel held during 2015 Comic-Con on Friday (July 10) at the Convention Center in San Diego, Calif.

The 31-year-old Warcraft actor was joined on the panel by Heroes Reborn‘s Zachary Levi, Outlander‘s Sam Heughan, The Walking Dead‘s Michael Cudlitz, Orphan Black‘s Jordan Gavaris, and The Strain‘s Kevin Durand.

Rob opened up about sexism in Hollywood and how he was taken advantage of by an exec when he was getting his start a decade ago.

“It went on for a long time, and it was complete harassment. I understand the fear that people have about coming forward about something like that, because especially as a man you feel like you should be able to handle a situation like that, but when you’re a young kid in this industry, you often can’t,” Robert said (via EW). “It was terrifying to see how easily it happened… And men aren’t the only perpetrators of this crime. It’s power that is the perpetrator of this crime and those of us who have dreams find those dreams exploited by people who can grant them, and that’s scary.”

    Hmm, he doesn’t say that it was a woman, which leads me to believe it was a man.

    yet he specifies that “men aren’t the only perpetrators”… I wonder why he did that?

  • Elvisfan Harb

    maybe they know it is going on and don’t say anything about it to stop it…

    Rarely does one go through this industry unscathed. Sadly, this is business as usual.
