The footage is thought to have been taken by Rebecca as she approached the actor late at night.

Rebecca told the Madrid newspaper Vapores: “I began to think if I stood on the set I would be attacked.

“I knew that the dog was acting strange and it was a bit scary.

“I also felt that if I walked away I would not be safe.”

The actor appears to be play trying to steal the dog off the set but an eagle-eyed Rebecca can be seen stroking the other dog and rubbing her back.
