In the podcast interview, Ferguson described the co-star as insecure and angry, leading to a distressing experience where she often found herself in tears after leaving the set. Being the lead actor, the individual held a powerful position on the call sheet, leaving Ferguson without a support system.

For the first time in her career, Ferguson decided to stand up for herself, confronting the co-star by demanding they leave the set. She expressed her refusal to work with them and even suggested acting scenes with the co-star’s back turned. The producers intervened, insisting that the co-star remain on set.

Eventually, Ferguson approached the director, highlighting the lack of support for everyone else due to the focus on the problematic co-star. Although it took time, addressing the situation brought relief to the set.

Despite sharing this harrowing experience, Ferguson chose not to disclose the co-star’s identity. The incident gained attention on social media, prompting support from Dwayne Johnson, who worked alongside Ferguson in the 2014 film “Hercules.” Johnson expressed his dislike for the situation but admired Ferguson’s courage in standing up against mistreatment.
