Kevin Spacy (26.07.59) was born in South Orange, NJ, the youngest of three children. The family moved to the West coast when he was very young, so he was raised in Los Angeles. His dad worked as a technical writer at Lockheed, writing manuals for aircraft, while his mother worked as a secretary.
Spacey is investigated by Scotland Yard regarding a third allegation of sexual assault.
The Metropolitan Police in Britain are now investigating a third allegation of sexual assault made against the disgraced actor Kevin Spacey.
Scotland Yard received a new claim on December 13th, alleging that a man was assaulted by the Oscar-winning actor in the Westminster area of London back in 2005. Announcing the new allegation, the Metropolitan Police did not mention 58 year old Spacey by name, but said that the alleged perpetrator is the same person as the subject of two earlier complaints, said to have taken place in the Lambeth area in 2005 and 2008 respectively.
A spokesperson for Scotland Yard said on Thursday: “On November 1st, City of London Police referred an allegation of sexual assault to the Metropolitan Police Service."
He opens up about what encouraged him to finally speak out.
It's been more than two months since Anthony Rapp made claims that Kevin Spacey sexually harassed him when he was just 14, and the actor has now opened up about what drove him to make the candid confession after over three decades. He's now an important figure in the fight against a harmful Hollywood trend.

All the Money in the World had to recast Kevin Spacey after allegations of sexual harassment
Following countless allegations of sexual harassment and assault against film producer Harvey Weinstein, a number of other stars have been accused of similar misconduct - including Hollywood actor, Kevin Spacey.

In response to allegations about Spacey, director Sir Ridley Scott reshot his newest movie - which saw Spacey in a significant role - and other actors in the piece have since revealed they re-filmed the scenes for free.
The director revealed earlier this month that he would re-shoot all of Spacey's scenes with Christopher Plummer instead - and he's on course to complete it on time.
Ridley Scott has broken his silence about his decision to re-shoot the entirety of his new movie All the Money In the World, replacing the disgraced Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer in the lead role.
When the news broke in late October that Spacey had been accused by numerous men of inappropriate sexual conduct, the British director was forced into a difficult decision. He announced back on November 8th that he would re-cast the role of oil magnate John Paul Getty III with Christopher Plummer in the role instead of Spacey, shooting all of his scenes again while still intending to honour the December 22nd release date.
It’s a daunting task, but Scott told Entertainment Weekly on Wednesday (November 29th) that everything was on course to meet the original deadline.
The show suspended filming in the beginning of November following the sexual harassment allegations against star Kevin Spacey.
Filming of the sixth and final season of Netflix drama 'House of Cards' has been delayed for at least another two weeks - however producers do intend to resume filming soon.
Production was halted on the series in early November in the wake of sexual harassment allegations against star Kevin Spacey, who was subsequently dropped from the show.
In a letter to cast and crew signed by show producers Media Rights Capital the hiatus was extended until December 8 - however it was added that they were "continuing to work with Netflix with the hope of resuming production soon."

Spacey is being investigated by Scotland Yard regarding a second sexual assault claim.
British police are investigating the disgraced Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey over a second sexual assault alleged to have taken place in London, it has been reported.
The 58 year old Hollywood actor had already been subject to an investigation from Scotland Yard, following an allegation that he forced himself onto a man at his flat in the British capital in 2008, which was launched earlier this month.
However, Spacey is now being investigated by the Metropolitan Police over a second allegation involving another man, dating back to 2005. Both incidents occurred while the actor was the artistic director at the Old Vic theatre in Lambeth.
Spacey was the artistic director at the prestigious London venue for 11 years.
The Old Vic theatre has received 20 personal testimonies of inappropriate behaviour against Kevin Spacey during his time as artistic director at the London venue, it has confirmed.
An investigation opened by The Old Vic, following allegations that the actor had sexually assaulted a number of male staff members and actors while working there between 2004 and 2015, led to 20 individuals coming forward to claim sexual misconduct inflicted on them by Spacey.
Releasing a statement to the media on Thursday (November 16th), the venue said that a “cult of personality” had been allowed to build up around Spacey, and that his status and stardom made people – in particular junior staff and actors – reluctant to come forward.
Christopher Plummer will be replacing the disgraced actor in the film.
Though removing Kevin Spacey from upcoming Ridley Scott film 'All The Money In The World' was undoubtedly the best decision after a slew of accusations against the actor, alleging sexual assault at various stages over the past 30 or so years, it's not going to be a cheap move to pull off. The film's set to hit the big screen in just over a month, and with Christopher Plummer jumping on board in the role of billionaire J. Paul Getty, those working on the picture have to pull out all the stops to make sure it'll be ready in time.
Kevin Spacey will be replaced in the film by Christopher Plummer
Sony and the film's financiers Imperative Entertainment were thinking about pushing the movie back to a January 2018 release, but with FX series 'Trust' from Danny Boyle also exploring the story of Getty's kidnapping, they're keen to not have to go to battle with the show, keeping their USP with a December drop.
Sir Ridley Scott is to re-shoot all of Spacey's scenes in 'All the Money in the World', with 87 year old actor Christopher Plummer in his place.
They say that where there’s a will, there’s a way, but that could be stretching it in the case of the imminently released movie All the Money in the World, whose producers have decided to recast the film with Christopher Plummer replacing the disgraced Kevin Spacey, a little over a month before its official cinematic release.
The movie is directed by Sir Ridley Scott and was to star Kevin Spacey in the lead role as the late oil magnate John Paul Getty.
However, since the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct against Spacey surfaced a fortnight ago and which have kept on coming, Scott and Sony/TriStar have taken the decision to re-shoot all of Spacey’s scenes with 87 year old actor Christopher Plummer in his place – but still intend to honour the scheduled release date of December 22nd!
The actor has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by a number of men.
Netflix have revealed that they have officially cut all ties with Kevin Spacey, announcing that they won't be working with the actor on the sixth season of 'House of Cards', and categorically stating that they will not be releasing their original film 'Gore', which stars and is produced by the actor.

The decision by the company comes after Anthony Rapp's sexual harassment allegations, with the 'Star Trek: Discovery' actor alleging that Spacey propositioned him at a party when he was just 14 years old. Spacey would have been 26 at the time.
