Roy Price resigns from Amazon days after sexual harassment accusation, reports say

Roy Price resigned as the head of Amazon.com Inc.'s movie and TV studio after a TV producer detailed her allegation of sexual harassment in a news report.

Albert Cheng, the studio's chief operating officer, remains interim head of the division, the spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

In light of Price's suspension, Amazon chose to cancel an event promoting its new shows in London this week.

He was also honoured by Queen Elizabeth II in 2008 when he was made an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. Dotrice was also a wireless operator and an air gunner with the Royal Air Force prior to his acting career.


Price had been at the helm of Amazon Studios since September 2014 during which it became the first streaming platform to get a Golden Globe, for the film Transport, and it won at the Oscars for Manchester by the Sea.

"I want to call out (Price's) behaviour and also hold myself to a certain standard", she told The Hollywood Reporter.

Price was suspended from the company five days ago following an accusation from an executive producer that Price sexually harassed her during San Diego Comic-Con in 2015.
