Stephen Collins’ Agency Cuts Ties with Actor over Molestation Scandal

The Agency for the Performing Arts has cut ties with actor Stephen Collins in the wake of the disclosure of an NYPD investigation on suspicion of child molestation.

The agency’s move came three days after the first report emerged when TMZ posted an alleged taped confession of the actor, in which he described lewd acts with children ages 10 and 12 years old.

Collins’ lead agent Jeff Witjas severed ties with him on Friday evening. APA had repped Collins for five years.

The fallout from the release of the recording has included being dropped from roles in the Seth MacFarlane comedy “Ted 2” and in the current season of ABC’s Scandal. In addition, Collins resigned his position as a member of the SAG-AFTRA national board.

Syndicated reruns of “7th Heaven” have also been pulled by UPTv and TV Guide network.
