Actress Eryn Jean Norvill says she’ll testify for Australian newspaper the Daily Telegraph, which is being sued for defamation by Academy Award-winning actor Geoffrey Rush.
Norvill co-starred with Rush in a 2015-2016 production of the Sydney Theatre Company’s “King Lear,” and lodged a complaint of sexual harassment against Rush with the theater.
Rush sued over the newspaper’s reports on the matter last year.
It will be the first time that Norvill’s spoken publicly about the incident.
The paper has now moved to amend its defense, which Rush’s side is trying to block.
The judge has said that he will not yet release Norvill’s statement to the public, since he does not want this to be a “trial by media.”
