Child actor Finn Wolfhard, who is known for his role in the popular science fiction-horror web series Stranger Things, has reportedly quit the popular media company Agency for the Performing Arts (APA) due to reported sexual assault allegations.

The 14-year-old Netflix star, who was represented by APA agent Tyler Grasham, cut ties with the agency after the allegations became public this week, the Los Angeles Times reported.

On Tuesday, filmmaker Blaise Godbe Lipman took to Facebook to identify APA's Tyler Grasham as the man he had kept anonymous in a #metoo post a day earlier detailing sexual assault that he suffered as a teenager.

Not only Finn Wolford, Descendants star Cameron Boyce also fired Tyler Grasham after the sexual asssualt allegations. I find it incredibly hard to believe they do not know of his predatory behavior, using his position within the company to prey on naive kids, ' he said in the post.

Lipman claims that when he was 17 or 18, he and Grasham had a dinner meeting at which Grasham "fed" Lipman alcohol and got him drunk, despite him being underage. Two men have come forward alleging that Grasham assaulted them.

Other industry men have since come forward to share their own experiences with Lipman, prompting It star Wolfhard to leave AFA after the agent's firing on Friday.

An agency spokesperson told outlets, "APA takes these allegations extremely seriously and is investigating this matter". After that, Lucas Ozarowski, now a 27-year-old film and TV editor, told Deadline the same thing happened to him.

"I didn't know who he was". "But I didn't want to discourage him because of the [career] ramifications".
