NATHAN Fillion has become something of a diva on the set of Castle.
The 42-year-old actor recently threw a “diva fit” of epic proportions because he felt his costar, Stana Katic, 35, was getting too much attention.
The sixth season initially focused on Katic’s character, Det. Kate Beckett, working with the FBI in Washington.
“Nathan saw the show skewing more and more toward Beckett, and he finally went off on the producers,” revealed an insider.
“Nathan railed, ‘The name of the show is ‘Castle’ not ‘Beckett’… now fix it!’ It was the ultimate diva meltdown.”
Castle debuted in 2009 and follows mystery novelist Richard Castle and Det. Beckett as they work together to solve some of New York City’s more unusual crimes.
In July, Nathan was a no-show on the set in an attempt to lobby studio bosses for a four-day workweek.
“Nathan lost that battle, but he’s won the war for being the undisputed star of Castle,” added the insider.
“He pulled the trump card of there being no series without him, and producers gave in.”
