“I mean, like, I’ve had an actor on that show spit in my face. And I was like, ‘Holy s***,'” Callies said.

Callies surprised Bilson and her co-host Olivia Allen at the revelation, with the Prison Break alum saying she “will get there on the podcast” about the series she co-hosts with Paul Adelstein.

“We will talk about it someday, but there were… There were things. Like, I would go home some nights and have to spend an hour talking my husband out of going to hospitalize somebody,” she said.

Prison Break ran for four seasons on Fox between 2005 and 2009. The series concluded with a TV film titled The Final Break in 2009. In 2017, Fox resurrected the show for a limited series event that lasted nine episodes. The series also starred Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Paul Adelstein, Rockmond Dunbar, Robert Knepper, Amaury Nolasco, and more.

Callies clarified that “some of the guys were great, and some of them were totally gentlemen.”

Although the actress says that her rewatch podcast Prison Breaking is “sort of medicine to go back” she was hesitant to watch the show again.

“I didn’t want it to send me into a spiral of, like, ‘What did I let them do to me? What did I let them say to me? What did I put up with? What did I not report?'” she explained.
