Leading UK agent Sara Putt, the new Chair of BAFTA, appeared to reference this past weekend’s coverage around criminal allegations against Russell Brand in her first letter to members.
Putt did not mention Brand directly but wrote: “This weekend’s news has again raised serious questions about the culture of the screen industries and what still needs to change.
BAFTA is supportive of the creation of CIISA, an independent standards authority for those working in the creative industries, and I encourage you to find out more about their plans.” Putt continued to highlight that “it is now mandatory for UK productions to have a bullying and harassment policy in order to enter our Film, Games and Television Awards.” The letter to members follows The Times, Sunday Times, and Channel 4 reporting allegations that Brand sexually assaulted four women at the height of his fame.
The Metropolitan Police said on Monday it had received a “report of sexual assault” in 2003 against Brand. Officers are in contact with the woman, who alleges she was assaulted in Soho, London.Read more on deadline.com
