Noel Clarke allegedly “encouraged students to remove clothes at drama school” as six more people have come forward with harassment claims.
Six more people have come forward with allegations of misconduct – including former students from the London School of Dramatic Art.
They claim Clarke encouraged students to remove their clothes during improvisation workshops, according to the Guardian.
Jack Taylor, the school’s founder, confirmed the claims and said that he stopped the actor doing the classes when he found out.
Clarke’s lawyers denied that the drama school asked him to stop leading classes – and he denies ever encouraging or forcing anyone to be naked in the workshop.
They also said the “Facing Your Fears” workshop was designed to help students with anxieties over their acting roles.
The workshop aimed to help “normalise” the removal of outer clothing in a safe environment, and Clarke made it clear it was not obligatory to participate, according to his representatives.
They added Clarke denies that as part of the workshop he encouraged or forced anyone to be naked and that the class was open to, and was attended by, both male and female adult students.
Clarke’s lawyers said the actor made it clear it was not obligatory to participate.
The 45-year-old has denied that he ever coerced, encourage or pressurised any individual into non-consensual sexual activities.
Among the women who have made allegations is Brotherhood producer #GinaPowell.
She alleged he told her he planned to “f**k and fire her” before changing his mind and keeping her on board.
The producer, who worked with Clarke for three years between 2014 and 2017, also claimed the actor bragged about having secret films of naked auditions.
She alleged he once showed her a covert recording of a naked audition by #JahannahJames, who starred in Brotherhood.
