LATEST: British comedy star Chris Langham's sons have testified in court on his behalf, recalling their meetings with his alleged victim.
Langham is charged with six counts of indecent assault on a girl under 18, as well as 15 counts of making indecent images of a child.
But speaking at Maidstone Crown Court in England on Tuesday (31Jul07), Langham's three sons from the actor's first marriage showed solidarity for their beleaguered dad.
Siencyn Langham, 30, the oldest of the actor's five children, told how he "resented" the alleged victim and had few memories of the pair together.
He said, "I think possibly I've blocked occasions when she was there because I resented other people being invited to occasions when it was meant to be me and my dad and my two brothers."
Dafydd Jones-Davies, 24, told the jury his father introduced him to the girl at the theatre he was working in at the time.
He said: "He (Langham) reckoned it would be beneficial for her to meet us as we've been through difficult times and she had been through difficult times. Me and my brother attempted to speak to her the first couple of times and she had no interest in us."
Meanwhile, former Palace Theatre front of house staff member James Fraser confessed he had suspicions about Langham's relationship with the girl, who claims she had sex with the actor in a dressing room there.
He told the court, "My concerns are that hotel visits, fancy restaurants and expensive gifts don't really constitute what I would call a professional or suitable relationship."
However, when he approached the alleged victim's mother about his worries he found "a laissez-faire attitude to the whole situation".
Langham has pleaded not guilty to all charges against him and claims any material found on his computer was for research purposes. The trial continues.
