Bosses at Warner Brothers insist Dougray Scott is ‘a consummate professional’ despite Ruby Rose’s allegations that the actor was ‘a nightmare’ on the TV set.
AceShowbiz -Warner Bros. bosses are defending “Batwoman” star Dougray Scott from allegations of abuse on set made by his former co-star, Ruby Rose.
The actress turned on Scott in an online tirade against showrunner Caroline Dries and producers Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter last week (ends22Oct21), accusing him of being “a nightmare” yelling at crew and abusing a stunt double – claims the Brit has been quick to dismiss.
“I absolutely and completely refute the defamatory and damaging claims made against me by her; they are entirely made up and never happened,” he wrote.
Rose, who was fired from the show, threatened Scott with legal action over the weekend after he released his statement, confirming his former TV daughter was fired following a series of complaints about her “workplace behaviour” and reportedly launched a lawsuit against the Australian star.
Rose took to Instagram and raged, “Dougray. I have too many witnesses coming forward with worse than just your anger issues… but ur (you are) sueing (sic) me for 10 million cos @gberlanti shared his lawyer with you… please… come first so I can use the money from that case to take on g berlanti.”
Warner Bros. TV bosses are standing by Scott, releasing a statement that reads, “We condemn the comments made by Ruby Rose about Dougray Scott. Warner Bros. has found Mr. Scott to be a consummate professional, and never received any allegation against him of bullying, or of abusive behavior on his part.”
“Mr. Scott was greatly respected and admired by his colleagues, and was a leader on the set. Warner Bros. Television did not pick up Ruby Rose’s option for an additional season because of multiple complaints about workplace behavior that were extensively reviewed by the Studio.”
Meanwhile, a former “Batwoman” crew member, Alexander J. Baxter, has also spoken out about Rose’s conduct on set, telling Comic Book Resources he had no problems with the “professional” members of the production company, calling the crew “lovely, hard-working, and dedicated.”
“Then came Ruby Rose…,” he said. “She stormed off set, she yelled at people, and whenever she interacted with any of us production assistants, we were disregarded as the trash we picked up. She was a dictator to work for.”
Baxter also revealed Rose’s alleged bad behaviour made him consider quitting.
“She was a horrible star and made so many of us feel like we were helping make a show for a dictator,” he added. “When I read her article claiming that the production was at fault, it infuriated me because having been there, I don’t wanna stand by and let her badmouth a company that she tried to screw over. No matter how bad your day, you have no right to be cruel.”
