New Zealand actor Grant Bowler has defended Lindsay Lohan following the publication of a damning expose saying she was nothing but trouble on the set of their latest movie Liz & Dick.

Editors at the New York Times Magazine recently published an article titled This Is What You Get When You Hire Lindsay Lohan in Your Movie, detailing her alleged bad behaviour during the making of upcoming erotic thriller The Canyons.

An audio recording of Lohan yelling furiously at her The Canyons co-star James Deen subsequently surfaced online on gossip site TMZ.

Despite that, Bowler has now stepped forward to insist he never saw a nasty side to her when they were working on their TV biopic of Dame Elizabeth Taylor.

Bowler, who portrayed Richard Burton in Liz & Dick, previously insisted working with Lohan involved "exercises in patience and... tolerance" but he tells E! Online she never treated him badly.

"I never got yelled at," Bowler says.

"We had a lot of quiet and intense conversations. We didn't have that (turbulent) relationship at all. To be completely fair to Lindsay, that did not happen. She didn't threaten me at all...

"We had a lot of quiet, serious conversations about characters and we worked very, very hard. And we both ensured that when we came to set, we came to set very, very serious. That's the God's honest truth."

The actor also refuses to comment on speculation about Lohan's troubled private life.

"My experience with any actor is from action to cut, everything else is none of my business."
