I did have a voice. I did stand up for myself. There was a situation on The Affair where things didn’t feel right, and I dealt with them, and I managed to protect myself,” the Dark Materials star explained. “It was before #MeToo and before Harvey Weinstein — and yet my instincts were very clear and strong about what I felt was wrong, about what was going on, and what I didn’t feel safe about.”The mystery around the exit was clarified a bit in December 2019, when The Hollywood Reporter published a report in which many claimed she had friction with the show’s creator, Sarah Treem, had problems with the nudity on the show and felt there was a “hostile work environment” after an incident with Girls producer Jenni Konner, Lena Dunham and Affair producer Jeffrey Reiner.- Advertisement – Doing what’s right.
