Former Child Star: Jimmy Just the Tip of the Iceberg

Former child actor turned investigative journalist Ben Fellows has written a damning piece about his early career ‘running the gauntlet’ of paedophiles through the world of television, media and even politics:

“When I was between the ages of ten and the age of consent, on every television programme and theatre job I did, I was either sexually harassed, coerced into drinking too much, felt up in some way, or simply followed home by a crazy male fans. I’ve had actors expose themselves to me and I mean really famous actors, including world-famous movie stars – many who are touted by the sycophantic celebrity-worshiping media as role models. So you can see how recent revelations of Jimmy Saville are of little surprise for me.”

Worth a read.
