Kevin Spacey’s “sexual behavior” halted production of “The Usual Suspects,” co-star Gabriel Byrne said in an interview published Sunday.

Bryne, 67, told the Irish Times that production of the Oscar-winning 1995 crime thriller was halted due to Spacey’s alleged sexual misconduct. While Byrne acknowledges film production being halted he claims that he “did not know honestly then the extent of his violence.” Byrne later found out that filming was abruptly halted for two days due to a young actor accusing Spacey of sexually inappropriate behavior.

“I mean, he was kind of a joke in that people would say, ‘That’s Kevin,’ but nobody really understood the depth of his predations. It was only years later that we began to understand that [filming] was closed down for a particular reason and that was because of inappropriate sexual behavior by Spacey,” Byrne told the Irish Times.

Spacey was fired from his leading role in Netflix series “House of Cards” following sexual assault and harassment allegations. Anthony Rapp, known for his role in Star Wars is an alleged victim of Spacey. Rapp told BuzzFeed that Spacey sexually assaulted him when he was fourteen-years-old.
