Cas Anvar went from an unknown actor to an international star over the last four decades.
He rose to popularity after appearing as Kambiz Foroohar in the Cruise/Wagner film Shattered Glass, and since then has appeared in a wide variety of TV shows and movies.
However, he was probably most well known for playing the Martian Navy pilot, Alex Kamal, in the fan-favorite TV series The Expanse, which premiered in 2015.
Amazon almost canceled the show, but slowly the series garnered a solid fan base and lasted till season 6.
Anvar might have appeared in the final season if multiple women had not accused him of sexual harassment and sexual assault.
Cas Anvar Sexual Assault Allegations
In June 2022, the actor was accused of sexual harassment and sexual assault from a variety of women on Twitter and other platforms.
According to reports, over 30 women claimed that Anvar sent them inappropriate messages and photos or assaulted them at conventions in the past.
It all started with a tweet from Twitter user @Lorie_o, a cosplayer, and gamer who claimed:
“While we’re throwing out the garbage, toss Cas Anvar onto the pile for targeting female Assassin’s Creed fans. I have two friends who told me he aggressively pushed them to meet up with him. One was creeped out and said no. The other he assaulted,” she tweeted.

Another Twitter user said the actor pressured her into coming to his hotel room at a convention when she was 17. He then fed the victim alcohol, tried to convince her to take her clothes off for a massage, and groped her.
After that, he allegedly told her he would give her money for a cab if she kissed him.
One of the victims who came forward included an actress who worked with Anvar. Her allegations were corroborated by a former VFX coordinator from The Expanse.
Anvar’s cast members from The Expanse including Dominique Tipper, Steven Strait, Wes Chatham, and Frankie Adams voiced their concern over the allegations and tweeted their support.

Additionally, the producers of the sci-fi series, Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck revealed that an investigation was underway,
“So one of the core cast of #TheExpanse has been accused of sexual misconduct. We passed these serious accusations onto the studio, Alcon. Alcon has engaged an independent firm to investigate this matter and takes these allegations seriously. I appreciate Alcon treating this matter with the gravity it deserves,” Abraham wrote.
A further statement from the account under the duo’s pen name, James S. A. Corey, added that everyone was fully committed to the truth.
Meanwhile, a statement released by Anvar claimed he would make himself “fully available to participate” in the investigation so that he could refute these very serious claims.
However, there have not been any updates about the sexual assault allegations ever since the intial buzz, and the actor has fallen off the radar.
Anvar’s character was killed off in the season 5 finale of the Amazon sci-fi series. He has not appeared in any new projects.
