Halle Berry and Jeffrey Dean Morgan Explain Why She Had the 'Meltdown of Meltdowns' on Set (VIDEO)
Spoiler: The Extant star is a committed trickster
Halle Berry is not afraid to let out her inner diva – as long as it’s all in good fun.
“She had a huge temper tantrum on set. Like, massive. Like, meltdown of meltdowns,” Berry’s Extant costar Jeffrey Dean Morgan tells PEOPLE of filming season 2 of the CBS sci-fi drama with the actress.
“I wasn’t even there, but my phone was ringing like … ‘Lord, have mercy. You better get down to set right now,’ ” continues Morgan, 49.
“[She was] screaming at everyone and until the first [assistant director] started having tears coming out of her eyes. She finally was, like, ‘April Fools!’ Meanwhile everybody was like, ‘Halle Berry done lost her mind!’ ”
But Berry, 48, had actually had much bigger plans for the prank: “I was going to go much further with it, but the first AD broke into tears, so I had to stop.”
Season 2 of Extant premieres Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
