LONDON — Kevin Spacey “vigorously denies” allegations of sexual assault, his lawyer said Thursday, as the Oscar-winning actor appeared in a London court to face five criminal charges against three men.

Photographers and television camera crews crowded Spacey, 62, as he arrived at Westminster Magistrates Court in London for the preliminary hearing.

Spacey sat in the glass dock during the half-hour hearing, standing to give his full name – Kevin Spacey Fowler – as well as his date of birth and a London address.

He has not been asked to enter a formal plea, but his attorney, Patrick Gibbs, said, “Mr. Spacey vigorously denies any criminality in this matter.”

Deputy Chief Magistrate Tan Ikram granted Spacey unconditional bail until his next appearance, a plea hearing scheduled for July 14.

The old Card castle The star is charged with four counts of sexual assault and one count of inciting a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without their consent.

The alleged incidents occurred in London between March 2005 and August 2008, and another in the west of England in April 2013. The victims are now aged between 30 and 40.

In a statement released last month, Spacey said he would travel to Britain to face the charges and was confident he would “prove my innocence.”

Spacey was questioned by British police in 2019 over several men’s claims that he had assaulted them. The two-time Oscar winner ran London’s Old Vic theater between 2004 and 2015.

Spacey won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for the 1995 film. The usual suspects and a leading actor Oscar for the 1999 film American beauty.

But his famous career came to an abrupt halt in 2017 when actor Anthony Rapp accused the star of assaulting him at a party in the 1980s, when Rapp was a teenager. Spacey denies the allegations.
