"ER'"actor Anthony Edwards has revealed that he was molested as a child by a director and producer, staying quiet because of emotional manipulation.

The actor accused the producer of molesting him when he was 12 years old. He alleges a friend was raped by the older man but he and his friends remained silent about the abuse. A lawyer for the man Edwards has accused has said his client has been out of the country and "and will have a response shortly."

Edwards urged society to break the stigma of childhood sexual abuse and hopes the abused with stand up and tell their stories. He added: "My abuse may always be with me, but it does not own me."
