Rebecca Ferguson surprised by ‘amazing costars’ reactions to reveal about 'idiot' actor who made her cry

"I got phone calls from amazing costars who I’ve worked with going, ‘You understand what you’ve done, right?’"

Rebecca Ferguson did not expect her comments about the "idiot" actor who made her cry on set to go viral.

The Dune star said she's received phone calls from former costars for sharing her experience, but also noted that the identity of the unnamed actor who berated her is not important.

"What I realized even at the age that I am now is it doesn’t matter," Ferguson said during a recent appearance on SiriusXM's The Jess Cagle Show. "I am me. I definitely think I’m much more open. I also know where my boundaries are. But the point of the interview wasn’t about finding the person. Of course, people will be interested. But I was excited about the question, which was a very good question."

"Because the point was," she continued, "is there a point in your career where you were treated in a way where . . . you want change, or you will not accept it? And it was such a clear moment for me working with this person. But I got phone calls from amazing costars who I’ve worked with going, ‘You understand what you’ve done, right?’”

Ferguson added, “And I was like, ‘Oh my God. No, I didn’t think.’ I mean, it’s not my responsibility, to be honest. I don’t really care. You know, you’re great, but my story is my story, and if you’re a good person, then don’t worry about it."

Ferguson revealed on the Reign With Josh Smith podcast earlier this year that an "absolute idiot of a costar" made her cry and walk off set after they had screamed, "You call yourself an actor? This is what I have to work with?" She said at the time, "Because this person was number one on the call sheet, there was no safety net for me. No one had my back.”

She said it was the first time she spoke up for herself on set, recalling that she told the unnamed costar to "get off my set" and "F off." She wound up acting with the back of the costar's head, and her director later backed her up. “It was great from that moment, but it took so long for me to get to that,” Ferguson said.
