Jeffrey Tambor's Future with 'Transparent' is Still Unsure

Lysette, who says Tambor pressed up against her and made inappropriate comments to her on set, believes the show should continue without Tambor. Now, however, a New York Times investigation suggests that neither Tambor nor Amazon have come to a final decision about how to continue the show. By the end of the month, Tambor had released a statement loosely apologizing for his actions, and that statement also included what many took to be a resignation from the series: "Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set", he said, "I don't see how I can return to Transparent".

"Playing Maura Pfefferman on Transparent has been one of the greatest privileges and creative experiences of my life", Tambor said then. Tambor responded in a statement where he denied those claims.

Tambor has starred as transgender matriarch Pfefferman since 2014. He won Emmys for the role in 2015 and 2016.

Tambor was accused of sexual harassment by his former personal assistant, a trans woman named Van Barnes, in a private Facebook post which was later circulated and reported on by the media. Another story from The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Amazon is still investigating the claims and has yet to issue any sort of final decision on the situation.

Lysette claims that when she emerged from from wardrobe in a costume of a lingerie top and shorts for a scene with Tambor, he said: 'My God, Trace.

'I felt his penis on my hip through his thin pajamas and I pushed him off of me, ' she said. "But the fact is, for all my flaws, I am not a predator and the idea that someone might see me in that way is more distressing than I can express".

Tambor is now facing three sexual harassment allegations.

IndieWire has reached out for an official comment from Amazon.
