Noel Clarke’s Kidulthood co-star Jaime Winstone has told him ‘Times Up’.
The 45-year-old has been accused of groping, harassment, and bullying by 20 women, according to The Guardian.
Now Jaime, the daughter of actor Ray Winstone, has made her feelings towards her 2006 co-star very clear.
Taking to Instagram, the 35-year-old shared the official Time’s Up logo.
The phrase refers to the 2018 #MeToo movement which aimed to ‘counter systemic sexual harassment in the entertainment business’.
She captioned the post: “When you’re late to the party but you’ve been on the list for 15 years.”
Other stars to speak out include Top Boy star Ashley Walters and I May Destroy You writer Michaela Cole.
In a statement, the latter said: “I am here to offer great support for the 20 brave women who have come forward; those who have shared their identities with us, but also those who have preferred to use an alias; the mental hurdles a black woman must overcome to do such a thing as reveal their identity within a narrative of rape abuse or bullying at the hands of someone within our community can sometimes be too much.
“Speaking out about these incidents takes a lot of strength because some call them ‘grey areas’. They are however far from grey. These behaviours are unprofessional, violent, and can destroy a person’s perception of themselves, their place in the world and their career irreparably.
“I have shared to show solidarity, to express my belief in them, and to stand with them in their indignation.”
Clarke, who rose to fame playing Mickey Smith in Doctor Who and has gone on to star in a string of films, has denied all claims.
Speaking in a statement, he said: “In a 20-year career, I have put inclusivity and diversity at the forefront of my work and never had a complaint made against me.
“If anyone who has worked with me has ever felt uncomfortable or disrespected, I sincerely apologise.
“I vehemently deny any sexual misconduct or wrongdoing and intend to defend myself against these false allegations.”
