Posted On July 1, 2021
An Australian actress who was accused of having consensual sex with a man who then raped her was in tears on Thursday after she learned her attacker had been charged.
In a statement released through her lawyer, actress Sarah Harrison said she was “very upset” and “in tears”.
“I am in tears,” Harrison told the ABC.
“I don’t know what I can do to comfort you.”
Harrison told the court that her attacker, the producer of a television series on Bisexuality in Australia, had contacted her in the late 1990s.
“He told me he was coming to Australia, and he wanted to see me,” she said.
“I said no.
I said, ‘I’m not going’.
He said, I’m going to do this thing.'”
I told him, ‘No, no, no’.
I’m not interested in this thing.
“Huff said she had no idea her attacker was the producer, but said she felt “violated” by his actions.”
It was a very, very horrible thing that I did,” she told the broadcaster.”
There were other girls there, I could have stopped it, I should have said no, I was not interested.
“Hanson said her attacker told her he was in a relationship with another man and wanted to meet her.”
That’s what I remember,” she testified.”
His partner said ‘oh, he wants to see you’, and I thought ‘oh my god’.
“I thought, he’s got to be kidding.
It’s just not me.”
Hollywood actor Adam Driver, who is also accused of the rape, was also charged with the assault on Thursday.
He denied the allegations, saying Harrison had “falsely accused him of rape”.
“It’s all completely false,” he said.
He told the media he was “disappointed” with the charges and had “zero tolerance” for any type of assault.
Harrison, a regular in Australian cinema, said she would continue to work with her Australian actor and had no plans to leave Hollywood.
“My focus is on being a good actress and hopefully my role will bring more acceptance and acceptance of others,” she wrote.
“We are all different and we are all going to have to live with our differences and work through them.”
