As a result, Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard made the bold, and proactive move to fire his agent due to the seriousness of these allegations.

In a statement, APA said it plans to hire an outside agency to investigate the claims.

Meanwhile, APA, where Grasham has been an agent since 2005, announced on Friday morning that it was putting him on a leave of absence while an independent third party conducted an investigation.

On Friday, Grasham was sacked by the agency amid the allegations that he sexually assaulted and sexually harassed young men in the industry more than a decade ago.

On Monday, filmmaker and former child star Blaise Godbe Lipman shared a Facebook post accusing his Grasham of misconduct and assault as part of the #MeToo campaign.

It is under the hashtag that Lipman first alleged that he had been assaulted by a prominent Hollywood agent, though he initially declined to name Grasham. Grasham remains employed with the agency and now represents Keegan Allen (Pretty Little Liars, King Cobra) and 14-year-old actor Finn Wolfhard, most recently seen in Stranger Things and It.

Lipman told The Wrap that he met Grasham when he was only 17 or 18.

Two men recently came forward alleging the APA agent sexually assaulted them. Tyler Grasham is still working at APA, where he's been representing children and teenagers for the last ten years since this happened.

He added: 'We were at his apartment when he got on top of me and fondled me.

The TV and film editor told that Grasham "did the same thing" to him that he did to Lipman and that he would be filing a report with the Los Angeles Police Department.

The Hollywood Reporter also said that, according to sources, APA has hired an investigator to look into the claims and that Mr Grasham has deleted his Facebook account and set his Instagram to private.

'I didn't know who he was. "I was young and desperately wanted acceptance within the industry".
