Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard has left his talent agency, following allegations of sexual assault within the company.

According to Deadline, the 14-year-old actor, who plays Mike Wheeler in the hit Netflix series, decided to leave after two men came forward alleging that APA agent Tyler Grasham had sexually assaulted them.

APA is reportedly launching an internal investigation in Grasham, who has represented Wolfhard across his career.

In a statement to E News, the agency said that "Tyler Grasham's employment with APA has been terminated, effective immediately."

Former child actor Blaise Godbe Lipmans alleged on Facebook the APA agent assaulted him a decade ago, while Lucas Ozarowski, a film and TV editor, told Deadline he had a similar experience with Grasham.

It comes after over 50 women have now spoken out against disgraced ex-media mogul Harvey Weinstein, alleging sexual harassment.

The Directors Guild of America announced on Saturday (local time) they're launching disciplinary proceedings against disgraced ex-mogul Harvey Weinstein, which could lead his expulsion.

The move was announced by DGA President Thomas Schlamme, who said that while they usually don't comment on internal union matters," they made an exception to "acknowledge the filing of charges."

"However, because of due process concerns that are a part of federal requirements for labour unions, the DGA cannot comment further."
