Page Kennedy from “Desperate Housewives” was fired from the hit show for improper conduct, a series spokeswoman said Tuesday.
Kennedy, who joined in season two, was removed by ABC Friday after a “thorough investigation by the studio” of allegations against him, publicist Janet Daily said.
There are currently no details about the nature of the allegations, and the actor has refused comment.
Kennedy starred as Caleb, a character who is on the run from the law.
The role of Caleb is being recast, Daily said.
In an Associated Press interview last month, Kennedy, 28, said the “Desperate Housewives” role represented the chance of “making a name for myself.”
“I needed this opportunity to play this kind of character,” Kennedy said. “It isn’t the kind that comes around often and it’s usually played by a name (actor). This is an opportunity for me to showcase all the years of training I’ve had.”
The actor previously appeared in the HBO series “Six Feet Under” as a football player who died of heat stroke and made his film debut in 2003’s “S.W.A.T.”
“Desperate Housewives,” represents “the biggest exposure I’ll have gotten,” Kennedy told the AP.
