Earlier this month, Spacey appeared to break his silence on the allegations, releasing a freakish YouTube video in the guise of his former House Of Cards alter-ego Frank Underwood - who was killed off amid the real-life claims. "I can promise you this: If I didn't pay the price for the things we both know I did, I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the things I didn't do".
