Actress Naomie Harris revealed a 'huge star' once put his hand up her skirt during a script read-through, and no one in the room at the time did anything about it.

"What was so shocking about it was the casting director was there and the director, and of course no one said anything because he was –– he is –– such a huge star," Harris told the Daily Mail in a story posted to the site on Saturday (December 11).

The British-born actress, known for her roles in No Time To Die, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Moonlight, and more declined to name the actor or movie.

"That was my only Me Too incident, so I felt very lucky, given how rife that behavior was," Harris said. She added a production she recently worked on took a different, more proactive approach in dealing with a sexual assault and harassment incident on set, and ousted the perpetrator.

Harris played "Moneypenny" in several James Bond films and was nominated for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 2017 for her role in Moonlight, which took home Best Picture that same year. Harris also played "Tia Dalma" in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise earlier in her career.
