THR's sources say Wolfhard left the agency in response to the claims levelled at his representation.

Fourteen-year-old Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike Wheeler in Netflix's hit Stranger Things, has left talent agency APA after his agent, Tyler Grasham, was accused of sexual abuse by another actor. Wolfhard also cut ties with the agency.

Cameron Boyce, 18, star of the Disney Channel movie "Descendants" also fired Grasham as his agent on Friday.


A spokesperson for the Boyce said, "In light of the allegations he felt it necessary to part ways with Tyler Grasham".

"Tyler Grasham, under the pretense of a business meeting. fed me alcohol while I was underage and sexually assaulted me", Lipman wrote. Grasham was placed on a leave of absence earlier Friday, as the agency said it would look into his conduct after two men, including former actor Blaise Godbe Lipman, accused him of sexually assaulting them.

The Stranger Things and IT actor, has chose to fire Tyler Grasham following reports of the sexual abuse allegations.


With a bright career ahead of him, we're glad the It actor immediately fled from the alleged predator. "But I didn't want to discourage him because of the [career] ramifications". "Although my initial reaction yesterday and today was to not make this about me, there's no better time". According to Deadline, a third man who has not been identified has come forward to accuse Grasham of sexual assault.

The MeToo campaign began two years ago but has picked up steam in the past two weeks following the countless allegations of sexual abuse by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
