The 42-year-old later filed a lawsuit against the film’s production firm, claiming that the terms of their contract entitled her to her million-dollar (£810,000) fee.

A counterclaim was filed against Ms. Green by White Lantern Film and their financier SMC Speciality Finance, who claimed that she had jeopardized the independent film’s production and breached the contract.

Edmund Cullen KC, for Ms Green, previously told the court that the actress had been subjected to a ‘character assassination’, adding it was ‘based on some of the cheapest and nastiest sorts of stereotypes around’.
