Robin Wright: ‘House Of Cards’ Was “Very, Very Close” To Cancellation Amid Spacey Scandal

“They printed that it was ‘only’ 600 people out of work, but if you include security, cops, shooting on location in Baltimore, everything, 2,500 people would have been out of a job. And that’s not fair – to take that security away from those people… They didn’t do anything .” She was concerned about the loss of jobs.
“Because of the climate at that time. "Harvey Weinstein… People were [saying], ‘We have to shut everything down or otherwise it will look like we are glorifying and honoring this thing that’s dirty." The air was thick, you know," Wright told the publication.
Wright reinforced comments by Patricia Clarkson, who joined House of Cards for Season 5, that it was Wright who lobbied hard to keep the show going. "Robin led all of this charge so people would save their livelihoods," Clarkson said earlier this summer on CBS' The Talk.
Her response? “I believed we should finish. I believed we should honor our commitment. "Our show's not dirty," and she fought with Netflix execs to keep it going. Why quit?” To the people that loved the show, also.

It’s called growth." Has the ability to reform. Wright also was asked by Net-A-Porter for her thoughts on Spacey and whether he deserved a career reprieve, she said, “I believe every human being has the ability to reform. In that sense, second chances, or whatever you are going to call it – absolutely, I believe in that.
In an interview with Net-A-Porter, star Robin Wright says the series came "very, very close" to cancellation after Spacey was fired following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. House of Cards will wrap with a sixth and final season this fall on Netflix, but during some tense times amid the Kevin Spacey scandal, that final chapter was far from a done deal.
