Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wants names.

After Rebecca Ferguson’s revelation that an “absolute idiot” co-star bullied her on set, the action star came to her defense on social media.

“Hate seeing this but love seeing her stand up to bulls–t, “Johnson — who starred alongside Ferguson in “Hercules” — commented under a clip of her interview via X (formerly Twitter) Wednesday.

“Rebecca was my guardian angel sent from heaven on our set, I love that woman,” the 51-year-old added.

“I’d like to find out who did this.”

Johnson’s comment comes just one day after the Swedish-born actress divulged that an unnamed male co-star made her life hell on a movie set.

“I did a film with an absolute idiot of a co-star and this human being was being so insecure and angry because this person couldn’t get the scenes out,” the “Mission Impossible” star, 40, recalled on Tuesday’s episode of the “Reign with Josh Smith” podcast.

“And I think I was so vulnerable and uncomfortable that I got screamed at and I would cry walking off set.”

Ferguson furthered that she felt powerless because the unnamed person was the film’s star and “No. 1” on the call sheet.

“This person would literally look at me in front of the whole crew and say, ‘You call yourself an actor? This is what I have to work with?’ I stood there just breaking,” she recalled. “This person was No. 1 on the call sheet, there was no safety net for me. No one had my back.”

Finally, after days of being berated, she said she mustered up the courage to tell the actor, “You get off my set. You can F off. I’m gonna work towards a Tennis ball. I never want to see you again.”

However, despite her moment of bravery, producers weren’t as supportive and allegedly told her, “You can’t do this to No. 1. We have to let this person be on set.”

She continued, “And I said, ‘The person can turn around and I can act to the back of the head.’ And I did. I was so scared. I feel it now when I’m saying it.”

The “Dune” star eventually addressed the tense situation with the director, who allegedly told her, “You’re right. I am not taking care of everyone else. I’m trying to fluff this person because it’s so unstable.

“It was great from that moment, but it took so long for me to get to that,” she concluded.
