'The Scorpion King: Book of Souls' star Pearl Thusi evaded a hijacking attempt on Thursday evening in Braamfontein, Johannesburg. 

The local actress shared details of the incident on Twitter, stating that a man came up to her while she was in her car with a gun in his hand. He then told her she must give him her cell phone or "he'll shoot" her.

Thusi then pulled a boss move and told him "no" and drove away and caught a lucky break as the traffic robot was green.

She did admit that while she was brave at the moment, afterwards she was "freaking out" from the whole experience. 

Twitter user @IBelieveInSA then asked if her if she was OK after the ordeal and made a point of highlighting the robbers rely on people to have startled inaction. 

The 'Quantico' star then confirmed that she is fine and that her interaction with fake guns on set is mostly like the reason why she didn't "immediately freak out".
