Kevin Spacey has released another video sending a Christmas Eve message to those who have struggled this year.

The actor first began randomly posting the mysterious videos on Christmas Eve in 2018 after his House of Cards character Frank Underwood was killed off from the Netflix show amid sexual assault allegations against Spacey.

In the video, called 1-800 XMAS, he urged people who feel alone at this time of year to reach out if they need help.

He says: ‘If you’re standing in a place that you can no longer remain standing, if you’re suffering, if you need need help, if you feel guilt or shame, if you’re struggling with your identity, if your back’s up against the wall, or if you feel that there is no path for you, whatever your situation, I promise you there is a path.

‘At this time during this holiday and beyond, even if you don’t feel it, there are people out there who understand and who can help, because you are not alone.’

Spacey continued: ‘I just want to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a great 2021, and for all those out there who might be suffering, it gets better. It does get better. Happy holidays everyone.’

The video ended with the number for the Suicide Prevention Hotline.

In September it emerged that Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp would be suing the Horrible Bosses 2 star for allegedly sexually assaulting him when he was 14.

He first made the allegations against Spacey in October 2017.

At the time the actor said he was ‘beyond horrified’ by Rapp’s story in a statement: ‘I honestly do not remember the encounter… But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years.’

The American Beauty actor added that the story ‘encouraged me to address other things about my life’ before coming out as gay in the statement.
