HOLLYWOOD- Actress Robin Wright who played Kevin Spacey’s wife in hit Netflix show House of Cards has said she did not know the man.

In an interview to NBC's Today programme in the US, Wright revealed, “Kevin and I knew each other between 'action' and 'cut' and in between set-ups, where we would giggle.”

This is Wright’s first interview since Spacey was fired from the show following a series of sexual harassment allegations.

She said, “We were coworkers, really. We never socialised outside of work...He was so great with me. He was never disrespectful to me, so that’s my personal experience. That’s the only thing that I feel I have the right to talk about.”

Talking about the reaction of the whole Netflix team after the allegations surfaced, Wright said, “I think we were all surprised, of course, and ultimately saddened. We forged ahead and we were so thankful that we were able to complete the series as planned.”

The sixth and final season of House of Cards will air late in 2018 and will have eight instead of the usual 13 episodes.
