Former Neighbours star Craig McLachlan denies sexual misconduct allegations

Starring role Mc Lachlan as he appeared on Neighbours in the late 1980s

Prominent members of Australia's television and theatre communities have taken to Twitter to voice their support for Erika Heynatz, Christie Whelan Browne, and Angela Scundi, who today publicly accused actor Craig McLachlan of sexual assault, harassment and bullying during the 2014 run of The Rocky Horror Show.

The company spokesperson declared that they had not been aware of the allegations until media reports were published on Monday, and that the GFO's records indicated no formal or informal complaint was made by the claimants to the company manager or executive producer of The Rocky Horror Show in 2014.

As Nine News reports, Browne and Heynatz have filed two separate complaints to Victoria Police.

"Furthermore no one at GFO recalls any verbal discussion of this nature".

McLachlan is accused of pressing against co-stars on stage, exposing himself, touching their genitals and groping their breasts.

It was reported that some of the female actors made police reports about the alleged behaviour.

An ABC/Fairfax investigation has revealed three women from the production claim he took advantage of his raunchy role as Dr Frank-N-Furter to indecently assault, intimidate and harass them, both on and off stage.

She claimed when she confronted him about the unwanted kiss, he abused and threatened her.

The group studied satellite signals presumed to come from the plane and ocean currents tracing back from where debris washed up. They were the largest aviation searches of their kind in history, according to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB).

SBS News has contacted December Media for comment. But there is another side to this man that he has very, very craftily and cleverly disguised from people for so long. "The other personality is this sinister, predatory behaviour", she said.

The actor has since made a decision to quit his role in the current run of the Rocky Horror Show after three cast members accused him of inappropriate touching and harassment.

Scundi alleges McLachlan kissed her passionately onstage even after she had asked that it not be done.

"While we clearly can not comment on the details of this particular case, sexual assault in any form is unacceptable, and we will work diligently within this industry to support the right of all people to be protected in the workplace, and stand by those who are victims of inappropriate behaviour".

The Gordon Frost Organisation, the show's producer, said in a statement: 'We have spoken to Craig and have mutually agreed it is not appropriate for him to continue in the current production.

McLachlan is now on tour with The Rocky Horror Show in Adelaide The allegations are said to relate to a 2014 production of the show.

"I would like my money back I purchased seven tickets, not interested without Craig", another said.

Ms Whelan Browne has made several allegations against McLachlan.
