The Baby hitmaker signed on to star as troubled teen Jason McCann last year (10), and producers were so impressed with his acting, they brought his character back for a second episode earlier this year (11).
But renowned prankster Bieber’s cheeky antics off camera did not win him a fan in Helgenberger.
Speaking on a French radio show on Friday (06May11), she says, “He never acted before. I mean, I shouldn’t be saying this but he was kind of a brat.
“I only had one (scene with him). He was very nice to me, but he locked one of the producers in the closet, (and) he put his fist through a cake that was on the cafeteria table.”
The actress won’t have to worry about Bieber returning to the CSI set for any future stints – McCann was killed off in the February (11) episode.
