Dominic Monaghan played the complex role of Charlie Pace in “Lost,” but apparently, it wasn’t enough for him. Charlie died heroically at the end of season 3, but Monaghan didn’t grieve that loss.
Apparently, Monaghan wouldn’t get along with his castmates (namely Matthew Fox), wouldn’t stop giving direction notes of his own, and sulk over how small his role was compared to the large size of the cast.
Not a Team Player
Edward Norton has a reputation for being extremely ill-mannered. In fact, rumors state his behavior was why Marvel decided not to reprise his role as The Hulk in "The Avengers."
The president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, said that Norton was not a team player and that the studio was looking for an actor who was willing to work side by side with an A-list cast. To top that off, Norton claimed that he wrote the movie "Frida" and denied credit to those who rightfully did within the Writer's Guild.
Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros Party Too Hard
Hawaii is such a magical place; it’s easy to start thinking you are on vacation and not focus on your acting work. During the shooting of "Lost," Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros did too much partying, and both received DUIs.
The two were becoming busier with partying than they were working until the producers could bear it no longer. Soon, both their characters, police officers Ana Lucia Cortez and Libby Smith, met their untimely end on the show, and the actresses had to take their parties somewhere else.
Jay Thomas Isn't Very Cheery
Jay Thomas played hockey star Eddie Lebec on the legendary sitcom "Cheers" from 1982 to 1993. At the time, Eddie had a side- gig as a radio DJ. It was during a radio broadcast that he was caught complaining about having to kiss his on-screen wife, Rhea Perlman, not realizing he was still on the air and that people were listening.
Allegedly, Perlman heard what he said on the radio, and Eddie Lebec never entered the TV bar again. Not only that but his character was killed off in some kind of freak Zamboni accident. Guess that’s what happens when you disrespect your wife.
Shannen Doherty’s Diva Reputation Precedes Her
Shannen Doherty is an actress well-known for on-set drama. She was notoriously fired from "Beverly Hills: 90210" for her tardiness and erratic behavior on set. And although she managed to land another big role on "Charmed," it didn't last very long. Apparently, the producers had to write her off the storyline due to her inability to get along with her castmate, Alyssa Milano.
In an interview Milano gave to "Watch What Happens Live", she admitted that there were some rough days during the three years they got to work together.
