Victoria Police have charged McLachlan, 53, with one count of common assault, eight counts of indecent assault, and one count of attempted indecent assault.

In January past year McLachlan - who also appeared in the stage play of The Rocky Horror Show - was accused of indecent assault and sexual harassment.

He was accused previous year when fellow Rocky Horror star Christie Whelan-Browne, who played the character of Janet, made allegations of sexual misconduct.

Since the publications, McLachlan has become reclusive and his acting career has been effectively destroyed, his legal team said in May.

McLachlan is due to appear at Melbourne Magistrates' Court on 8 February.

Among iPhone component suppliers in Asia, South Korea's LG Display Co Ltd was up 0.5 percent, while Japan Display Inc was flat. This figure is derived from sources apparently familiar with this request, and applies to the first 3 months of 2019.

McLachlan is seeking $6.5 million in special damages, and his defamation hearing is set down for four weeks from February 4.

McLachlan won the Gold Logie in 1990 as the most popular personality on Australian television.

More recently he has appeared on the ABC TV show The Doctor Blake Mysteries in the lead role of Dr Lucien Blake, who returns home to Ballarat in the 1950s to take over his father's GP practice.

McLachlan's spokesperson has told Sky News Australia that the actor is innocent and will be vigorously defending the charges.
