McLachlan's partner vows to clear his name 15 Mar 2018 AAP Newswire The partner of actor Craig McLachlan says the pair are determined to clear his name after allegations of sexual harassment.Speaking on Sydney radio, Vanessa Scammell insisted the Gold Logie winner was not the person the media painted him to be."Yes he's mischievous, but one of his greatest assets is that he loves to make people happy and comfortable," she told 2GB on Thursday."We will do everything we can to move through this and clear his name."McLachlan filed defamation proceedings against Fairfax Media and the ABC after they published claims he sexually harassed a number of former colleagues.In early January they reported several cast members of the 2014 run of The Rocky Horror Picture Show had accused the 52-year-old of touching or exposing himself to them.Ms Scammel said the experience had been "rough and savage"."The lack of humanity that's been shown, I have found incredibly overwhelming," she said.She said the couple were "side-swiped" when they became aware of the reports and the "shock was out of this world".
