Harvey Weinstein claims: Sopranos actress Sciorra alleges rape

October 28, 2017 5:11 pm

Italian-American actress Annabella Sciorra, who starred in US TV series The Sopranos, has accused disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein of rape.

She told The New Yorker that Weinstein forced his way into her New York apartment and assaulted her in 1992.

She alleges that he sexually harassed her in the subsequent years. In the article actress Daryl Hannah also says she was harassed by Weinstein.

His spokeswoman again said the producer denies claims of non-consensual sex.

On Thursday another actress, Natassia Malthe, accused the producer of raping her in a London hotel room in 2008.

More than 50 women have now accused Harvey Weinstein of a range of allegations ranging from rape to sexual harassment.

Malthe held a press conference with lawyer Gloria Allred, who is representing a number of Weinstein’s accusers.

Ms Sciorra told the New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow that the assault happened in 1992 after she had filmed The Night We Never Met, which Weinstein produced.

The producer forced himself into her apartment in New York while she was getting ready for bed after he had dropped her off following a group dinner.

She said Weinstein “pushed the door open” and refused to leave when asked, before shoving her onto the bed and raping her.
