‘Doctor Strange’ actress Zara Phythian, husband accused of sex with teen

An actress who appeared in “Doctor Strange” has been accused, along with her husband, of having sex with a teenage girl, a report said. Zara Phythian — a martial artist who played a sorcerer in the 2016 Marvel movie — has been accused of sex crimes along with husband Victor Marke for “repeatedly having sex” with a 13-year-old girl, according to the Nottinghamshire Post. The girl, who is now an adult, claims Phythian, 36, and Marke, 59, plied her with alcohol and had sex with her between 2005 and 2008. She also said they filmed some of the encounters. “I knew it was wrong but I just didn’t know how to get out of the situation or say anything,” she told cops, according to the outlet. “I remember trying to copy Zara’s reaction at the time because I looked up to her and tried to be like her in every way.” Both Phythian and Marke were martial arts instructors in the UK when the teenager reached out to them. The woman now claims that Phythian asked her to play a game of “dare” and give Marke oral sex. Pythian and Marke both denied the allegations in court.
