She told Screenrant in an interview Tuesday that she and Bay ‘went at each other, at our throats’ on set. 

Eiza explained: ‘[The argument was over] Something I did. I was frustrated because listen, I felt a lot of pressure to bring to life a paramedic that felt real in the time that we’re living. 

‘First responders have been dedicating their lives fully, forever obviously, but more than ever. It’s very transparently obvious what they are bringing to our society. And so I just didn’t want to make a joke or cartoon version of who they were.’

She certainly seemed to  be taking the role very seriously as she really wanted to embody the character.

Eiza explained:  ‘I really wanted to level up and bring something that would feel proud of. So I was very vocal about certain things that I didn’t feel would be right.

‘And then he’d be like, “Just let me do it. Trust me.” So we would butt heads a lot, but that’s part of the creative process. It’s sort of speaking up about what your thoughts are and then finding a common ground.’

Things ended up being copacetic after the dust up as Eiza told the publication that they got along perfectly after that as they were comfortable enough to discuss their ideas.

Ambulance stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen as Will, a military veteran who turns to his adopted brother Danny — a life-long criminal played by Jake Gyllenhaal — when he needs money to pay for surgery for his wife.

Danny brings Will into a plot to rob a bank for $32 million, but when the rest of their crew are gunned down by police, they hijack an ambulance with EMT Cam Thompson (Gonzalez).

 Although she initially tries to escape, she opts to stay with the two fleeing men as she tries to save the life of a police officer whom Will shot.

Ambulance hits theaters this Friday, April 8.
