“Regarding, you know, how I left the show, I just want to say I never, ever, ever, ever intended to make anyone feel uncomfortable — ever. It’s just not who I am…we loved each other. We were irreverent. We were honest. We were vulnerable. We had stories that were very, very personal. We trusted one another. It was a set like no other,” he said.
“Of course, there were instances where my interaction with these lovely people could have been mistaken way other, way other than how I intended, and I have profoundly apologized, and I apologize now if I made anyone, anyone feel vulnerable, and I’m sorry it ended the way it did.”
“I’m so proud of playing Maura and part of the LGBT community, and getting that important message out. It’s a highlight of my life, and I just can’t let the day go, and I can’t leave this studio, without saying something,” he added.
Jeffrey was fired in February of 2018 amid being accused of sexual harassment. Co-star Trace Lysette was one of his accusers.
