Actor Christopher Williams was apart of the classic 90’s sitcom “Martin” and he described his time with the cast.
As Christopher Williams was coming up in the entertainment world, one of his earliest gigs came acting on bit parts on what some consider one of the greatest shows ever in “Martin”. At the tail end of the show there was drama between Martin Lawrence and Tisha Campbell that caused the show’s run to stop abruptly. Williams speaks on Martin Lawrence and how he dealt with his cast during that time period of the show’s original run. According to Williams, Lawrence had an unmatched ego and made the lives of the people around him difficult.
Williams shared a clip of his appearance along with a detailed caption. “This was one of my first guest star roles back in the ‘90s on MARTIN,” he wrote. “It was an interesting experience for many reasons: I auditioned and got the job, but on the DAY I was shooting, I had to have a ‘extra’ audition JUST for the egomaniacal Martin Lawrence.”
“Then when we were on set, he yelled at the person bringing him a NEW water because he had taken a sip out of the last one and had someone following him around with a fan,” Williams continued. “I had never seen a ‘star’ treat people so rudely. The piece de resistance came when shooting the scene you see here.”
Williams accused Lawrence of injuring him during the first take of the scene and claimed that he “almost had a concussion.” They reportedly stopped the scene and someone from the crew allegedly told Williams that he was a target because “you are just being too funny.” They did the scene again, but to protect himself, Williams claimed he landed on his side, but that didn’t help.
“He didn’t the same thing but THIS time he punched the dummy on the ground and then punched me twice,” he said. “This was my first lesson in my acting career that you need to take care of yourself and speak up when someone does something unprofessional. Which I did not. I didn’t know any better. I’ll never forget that day and as you can tell I am NOT a fan of his.”
