His downfall began when actor Anthony Rapp alleged he was 14 when Spacey, then 26, made a sexual advance to him in 1986.
Spacey was eventually dismissed from "House of Cards" after the claims emerged.
In a recent interview with CBS' The Talk, cast member Patricia Clarkson, who plays Jane Davis, Deputy Undersecretary of Commerce for International Trade and a veteran of the DC lobbying shenanigans, revealed that Wright played a huge role in saving a lot of jobs.
"We have attractive showrunners, Frank [Pugliese] and Melissa [Gibson], and they killed themselves to rethink the whole show", Clarkson added. "Robin led all of this charge so that people would save their livelihoods because when the show goes away some people don't get paid", explained Clarkson. The sixth season, which will include just eight episodes, will be the show's last. "I think it's gonna be a stunning, stunning new season".
At the end of season five, Spacey's character, Frank Underwood, quit the Oval Office, allowing his wife Claire (Wright) to take the presidency.
