American actor Kevin Spacey has been ordered to pay around R520 million ($31 million) to the producers of the hit Netflix series, House of Cards.

The disgraced Hollywood star lost his Los Angeles court appeal, to overturn an arbitration award ruling, handed down last November.

Spacey starred in House of Cards for five seasons before being cut from the show, due to allegations of sexual misconduct. He denies the allegations.

Producers MRC argue they lost millions in profits after they had to remove the Oscar winner from his central role as Frank Underwood.

Spacey is also facing charges of sexual assault in the UK.
