Producer Gary Goddard Accused of Sexual Misconduct by Multiple Former Child Actors

More former child actors have come forward accusing producer Gary Goddard of sexual misconduct. Following “ER” alum Anthony Edwards’ allegation that Goddard sexually assaulted him when he was 12, seven others from his Santa Barbara theater group are accusing their one-time mentor of molesting or attempting to molest them in the 1970s. In a Los Angeles Times expose, the former actors detail Goddard’s behavior, which allegedly ranged from fondling to sexual abuse during the troupe’s overnight stays during a statewide tour.
