Cape Town - It would not have been "realistic" to cancel House Of Cards following allegations of sexual assault against lead actor Kevin Spacey, one of the series' stars has said.

Speaking at the season six premiere Constance Zimmer who plays Janine Skorsky said: "To have a show be taken down by one element is not realistic. There is a lot of people who put in a lot of hard work, and we have developed a fan base and we have developed a family."

Spacey was fired from the show last year after a series of allegations of sexual harassment and assault. (Read more here)

Shortly thereafter the series was cancelled with the producer saying that the decision to end the series was made months in advance. 

This season will see Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) take over as president after her husband's death in the Netflix series.
