(Newser) – What did Robin Wright know about the alleged dark side of House of Cards co-star Kevin Spacey? Not much, per the actress' interview with Savannah Guthrie on the Today show. "We were co-workers, really," Wright said in a clip that aired Monday morning. She noted they had a "respectful, professional relationship," that Spacey was "so great with me," and that the two "never socialized" outside of work. Wright said she hasn't heard from him since he was fired from their hit Netflix show and that "I don't even know how to reach him."

As for Guthrie's inquiries as to whether Wright ever spotted any "red flags" in his behavior, Wright continued to play up their distance, saying, "Kevin and I knew each other between 'action' and 'cut,' and in between setups, where we would giggle. I didn't really—I didn't know the man. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is." When Guthrie asked if Wright herself had ever experienced harassment during her long tenure in show biz, Wright laughed and said, "Of course. Who hasn't?" The sixth season of House of Cards, which resumed production earlier this year after a delay due to the Spacey scandal, will appear on Netflix this fall, per the Hollywood Reporter. More of Wright's interview is here. (Read more Robin Wright stories.)
