Former child actor Sarah Monahan is now threatening civil action against the Seven Network and her former Hey Dad co-star Robert Hughes after claims of inappropriate behaviour.
33-year-old Monahan is claiming she was the victim of inappropriate behaviour from Hughes, who played her on-screen father in the 1990s series.
Monahan says she will not wait until NSW police conclude their investigation before she begins civil action.
“We really don’t know how much longer it’s going to take and (police) can’t tell how much longer it’s going to take or if it’s even ever going to result in charges,” she said.
She says Seven execs also knew of the allegations but did nothing.
“I was sure that they knew because everybody knew.
“It’s all about them making their money and the best way to hurt them is with their pocket book, go after their money,” she claimed.
