There's few better man to talk about Kevin Spacey than his brother Randy. Here, in an exclusive and often controversial interview, the elder sibling in the Fowler family talks about what it was like growing up, in what has been described as a “house of horrors”.
You’d be wrong if you thought Kevin Spacey’s older brother would want to act as some kind of an apologist for the fallen star. There’s an understandable mixture of emotions running through the man – anger, sadness, pity, empathy. But excuses are off the agenda.
As someone who has himself suffered sexual abuse at the hands of the brothers’ paedophile father, Thomas Geoffrey Fowler, Randy knows the score. Either way, however, he believes there is no justification for what Kevin is accused of doing. The two brothers haven’t been close since Kevin hit the big time. The secret life that Spacey led before his house of cards came crashing down is a mystery to Randy.
However, ask Randy about the kid that was Kevin Spacey Fowler – who grew up with him, in what he describes as a “house of horrors” – and the floodgates open. This is Randy’s first major in-depth interview since the scandal broke. Before now, he’s made a few brief media appearances and given a couple of short interviews to tabloids. But Randy hasn’t been happy with how his story has been presented.
