Catherine was most petrified when she was performing a from high up as she has a fear of heights, and it was all the more scary when a wasp swarmed around her.
She told The Sun Online: "At one point I am up high for a big scene - I can't say any more or give it away but I am terrified of heights so the stunt was a challenge.
"Something happens which I can't reveal, but filming it was terrifying."
The actress said she nearly had a "breakdown" when the pesky insect much to the amusement of her co-stars.
She told the Mirror Online: "I am terrified of heights, so that was a real challenge for me, especially when a wasp came. Everyone else thought it was hilarious but I had a breakdown."

She said: "Because of the nature of the scene they were just like 'Go for it guys'. Me and Samia [Longchambon] were like 'Oh my god!" And we did, we just went for it - within reason. We were both aware of what we should or shouldn't do but yeah, it was pretty full-on."
