There were similarities between two alleged incidents that made him think McLachlan's conduct wasn't acceptable, he said.

Though the actor had been invited to take part in subsequent productions of the musical, he wrote to the theatre company telling them he didn't want to.

"I didn't want to work a second season ... solely because I didn't want to work with Craig," Mr Maddren said.

"I took a stance that Craig's behaviour towards the women in the cast was unacceptable and I didn't want to return."

This was despite the role involving a well-paid, short run with the potential for him to tour his native New Zealand.

While the former Hi-5 actor did attend a Sydney audition, he said he was "reinvigorating" his contact with the company rather than seeking a part.

McLachlan argues the allegations - which include pressing his penis against a woman's back, kissing women without consent, running his hand between a woman's leg and straddling a woman's lap - either didn't happen or were not indecent.

The actor became a household name for roles in the Australian soap operas Neighbours and Home and Away.

He launched defamation proceedings against Fairfax Media, the ABC and a former co-star in 2018. That case has been delayed until after the criminal charges are dealt with.
