Actor Kevin Spacey released a new Christmas video invoking his "House of Cards" character, Frank Underwood, in which he said he had a "pretty good year" and asked for "kindness."
The actor has since 2017 faced multiple sexual-assault allegations, all of which he has denied. Earlier this year one of his accusers dropped a civil suit against him, but the criminal charges remain.
Last year Spacey also released a holiday video that alluded to his ongoing allegations.

Kevin Spacey has released a chilling Christmas video as his "House of Cards" character, and appeared to ask for "kindness" amid a series of sexual-assault allegations leveled against him.
In a minute-long video posted on YouTube on Christmas Eve, the actor said in the voice of his character Frank Underwood: "You didn't really think I was going to miss the opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas, did you?"
"It's been a pretty good year, and I'm grateful to have my health back," Spacey said.
He was fired from Netflix's "House of Cards" in 2017 after a series of sexual-assault allegations against the actor, and his character was killed off in the final season.
He has denied all allegations against him. Earlier this year a man accusing Spacey of groping him without consent when he was 18 years old dropped a civil suit against the actor, but the criminal charges against him remain.
Spacey also alluded to the upcoming US presidential election in 2020, saying: "As we walk into 2020, I want to cast my vote for more good in this world."
"Ah yes, I know what you're thinking: Can he be serious?" he said. "I'm dead serious."
"The next time someone does something you don't like, you can go on the attack," he said. "But you can also hold your fire and do the unexpected: you can kill them with kindness."

This is the second time Spacey has released videos that alluded to his ongoing allegations.
In a monologue delivered over a kitchen sink, released last Christmas Eve, he said: "You wouldn't believe the worst without evidence, would you? You wouldn't rush to judgment without facts, would you?"
"If I didn't pay the price for the things we both know I did, I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the things I didn't do," he added.
