Written by broebling on November 20, 2017
Jeffrey Tambor, who played trans woman Maura Pfefferman on Amazon’s celebrated Jill Soloway show Transparent, announced Sunday that he would not be returning for the next season. Tambor has been accused of sexual harassment by his former assistant Van Barnes and actress and series regular Trace Lysette; both are transgender women. The actor has denied the allegations, but the show’s writers were reportedly already trying to find a way to write his character out of the show.
