Doctor Sleep star Rebecca Ferguson has revealed she broke down in tears filming a scene where her character in the horror movie goes “beyond evil”.

The English-Swedish actress is starring opposite Ewan McGregor in the adaption of Stephen King’s 2013 novel, which is a sequel to his 1977 classic The Shining.

Doctor Sleep is set decades after the first book and features a grown-up Dan Torrance – played by McGregor – who is now an alcoholic struggling to deal with his childhood trauma.

Ferguson stars as Rose the Hat, a leader of a cult that feeds on children with psychic powers.

The 36-year-old said one particular scene left her so distressed that members of the crew were looking away in horror.
