After 18 cast and crew members from 2000s teen drama One Tree Hill accused the show's creator Mark Schwahn of sexual harassment Monday, one of the cast members from his current series, E!'s The Royals, has also spoken out.

Alexandra Park, who plays Princess Eleanor in the drama about a fictional British royal family, posted a lengthy statement on her Twitter page Wednesday night, alleging that she was also "exposed to this reprehensible behavior" by Schwahn.

"I have a responsibility as someone who was working under Mark Schwahn on The Royals to acknowledge these claims. I am devastated to admit to myself, to my colleagues, and to this industry that I too, have been exposed to this reprehensible behavior," wrote Park.

The 28-year-old Australian actor said she is "immensely appreciative of my studio and network for listening to me, for being my partner in this conflict, and for taking the actions necessary to make things right."

E!, Universal Cable Productions and Lionsgate Television said Wednesday Schwahn has been suspended from his role as showrunner of The Royals pending the result of an internal investigation.

"E!, Universal Cable Productions and Lionsgate Television take sexual harassment allegations very seriously, investigate them thoroughly and independently, and take appropriate action. Lionsgate has suspended Mark Schwahn from 'The Royals' as we continue our investigation," they said in a statement obtained by Variety.

On Monday, several female cast and crew members from One Tree Hill, led by actors Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton and Bethany Joy Lenz, penned an open letter alleging that women working on the show were subject to harassment by Schwahn.

One Tree Hill aired nine seasons from 2003 through 2012, first on The WB network and later The CW.

Responding to Park, Bush tweeted:

Co-star Danneel Harris added:

YOU are the change that will bring about a “New Normal” in our industry. I am proud to stand with you and offer my support. #royals #BurnItDownSis https://t.co/bm6iX9Skgt
