Rebecca Ferguson’s set story sparks speculation



A comment by “Mission: Impossible” and “Silo” actress Rebecca Ferguson about an unnamed former co-star has gone viral with many speculations about who she is talking about.

In fact, during the response he also seemed very aware that people would search his IMDb looking at his co-stars and made it clear that this is neither Hugh Jackman nor Tom Cruise.

Appearing in the Reign with Josh Smith podcast as part of a long interview about “Dune: Part Two,” the actress talked about speaking up on set to make people feel safe.

She was asked if there was ever a moment when she felt proud to stand up and let her voice be heard. She responded with a story about an insecure co-star in a movie she was involved in and what happened:

“I made a movie with an absolutely idiotic co-star, no matter who it is. I’m going to try not to give this away, but I remember there was a time where this human being was very insecure and angry because he couldn’t pull off the scenes. And I think he was so vulnerable and uncomfortable that they yelled at me.

(But) because this person was number one on the call sheet, there was no safety net for me. So no one had my back. And I would cry when I left the set. This person would literally look at me in front of the entire crew and say, ‘You call yourself an actor? Is this what I have to work with? What is this?’ And I stayed there breaking down. This happens.

I remember the next day I told him, ‘Get off my set.’ It’s the first time I speak, I remember being very scared. I looked at this person and ‘You can go.’ I’m going to work to get a tennis ball. I do not want to see you again.’

Then I remember the producers came up and said you can’t do this to “number one” and we have to let this person be on set, Ferguson, but I said the person can turn around and I can act. backstage. head… and I did it.”

She adds that she remembers feeling very scared at the time and thinking “it shouldn’t have to be like this.” She adds that she talked to the director about it and they admitted that she was right and said, “I’m not taking care of everyone else. I’m trying to fool this person because he’s very unstable.” She adds that whatever the production was, it became “cool” from the moment she spoke.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, who worked with Ferguson on 2014’s “Hercules,” weighed in on the comments, saying, “I hate to see this, but I love watching her take on the bulls. Rebecca was my guardian angel sent from heaven on our set. I love that woman. “I would like to know who did this.”

Ferguson can be seen in “Dune: Part Two,” which opens in theaters Friday, and is currently in production on the second season of “Silo” for the Apple TV+ service.
