Rocky Horror company head 'cannot remember any discussion' about Craig McLachlan

At least two other people have since come forward with complaints to McLachlan to Victoria Police.

When she said she could turn off the air conditioner if McLachlan was cold, he allegedly said "I was hoping to see your nipples go hard".

The second woman, a salon worker, said he kissed her without permission.

McLachlan, who is also known for roles in Home and Away, Neighbours and the Doctor Blake mysteries described the initial allegations in The Sydney Morning Herald as "baseless" in an email to the newspaper.

The actor added that when they reported feeling unsafe and threatened by McLachlan's behaviour to a manager, they responded very passively, "showed no reaction and then said, 'Well, what do you want me to do?'".

The three women said they sent a detailed list containing details of the alleged offences committed by McLachlan past year to GFO, which in turn threatened to sue them on the grounds of defamation.

They said the alleged incidents were not in the context of McLachlan being in character as Dr Frank-N-Furter in the Rocky Horror Show.

After her emotional clap-back, the Australian actress was shown heaps of support from fellow stars in the industry, including Love Child's Harriet Dyer.


"In response, we have spoken to Craig and have mutually agreed that it is not appropriate for him to continue in the current production of the show", the producers said in a statement provided to The Associated Press on Tuesday. The woman told the ABC that she didn't believe he was making a sexual advance on her with his comments, but maintained the situation was "creepy enough" for her to warn her bosses against assigning other young women to drive McLachlan. "There is no money", she said.

"Incredibly disappointing for the industry as a whole, not just for me personally or for Christie and Erika, but for the entire entertainment industry".

The anecdote has taken on new significance after the sexual misconduct allegations, which include claims McLachlan indecently assaulted women by touching them from backstage and behind sets.

The producers, The Gordon Frost Organisation, said it was "shocked to learn of allegations" that it was taking "very seriously".

"That's not normal workplace behaviour, that's not normal, that's not OK and yet for some reason, because of this sense of entitlement and this level of confidence ... he thought there was nothing wrong with doing that", she said. So I thank you.

A male crew member on the 2014 tour of the Rocky Horror Show has told police that McLachlan indecently assaulted him.

She alleges McLachlan kissed her twice on the cheeks as he left following an uncomfortable ride.

"I think that would never have happened if we hadn't come forward".
