According to Deadline, the 14-year-old actor, who plays Mike Wheeler in the hit Netflix series, chose to leave after two men came forward alleging that APA agent Tyler Grasham had sexually assaulted them. According to TheWrap, Wolfhard was Tyler Grasham's biggest client, but the actor is no longer signed with him or the Agency for the Performing Arts.

'APA Agency has kept this man employed, working with kid actors.

That original post seems to have been removed or set to private, but Lipman later named Grasham in a follow-up Facebook post, spurred - incredibly - by Grasham himself. I find it incredibly hard to believe they do not know of his predatory behavior, using his position within the company to prey on naive kids, ' Lipman said.
