Actor Fred Savage from the favorite series “The Wonder Years”, broadcast in the eighties, was fired after an investigation about the abuse.
Actor Fred Savage, 45, the star of the hit teen series “The Wonder Years”, was fired from a new version of the project after allegations of abuse. Savage was fired and the production made a brief announcement and confirmed it.
“We have recently been informed that there are complaints about actor Fred Savage, and we have launched an investigation in accordance with the procedure. After the investigation, we decided to end his engagement as executive producer and director of the series,” “20th century” television said. Fred played the lead role in the series “The Wonder Years”, broadcast from 1988 to 1993.
This is not the first time that Savage has been the target of bizarre accusations because several women claimed that he physically abused them during the filming of movies and series.
He previously settled and paid Yangzhou Huang, the costume designer of the series “The Grinder”, who accused him of violence. Huang described in 2018 how Savage hit her on set. In one incident, she removed some dandruff from his jacket sleeve and he punched her three times and shouted “you mustn’t touch me”. It is not known what happened this time and who accused Savage, and the actor has not yet spoken out about the new accusations.
The original series was shut down after the former costume designer filed a lawsuit for sexual harassment against Savage, who was 16 at the time. She claimed that he demanded that they have sexual intercourse and that he touched her inappropriately. Another actor from the series, Jason Hervey, was also the target of the lawsuit. The costume designer was compensated, but then other members of the team said that it was impossible for the teenagers to be abused at any time because they were always surrounded by escorts and wore microphones, so inappropriate behavior would be noticed.
