She is currently in Sydney filming the iconic game show, Name That Tune, for a reboot in 2021.

But last week, American actress Jane Krakowski had a rather awkward moment on set.

The 52-year-old, who is best known for her roles in 30 Rock and Ally McBeal, was left mortified after she asked by producers to reshoot over 20 minutes worth of scenes.

Daily Mail Australia understands that audience members watched on as Jane was forced to repeat all of her lines. 

'This is so cringeworthy at my ability,' the frustrated star was heard telling producers via her earpiece.

According to the witness, Jane was mortified over the number of scenes she needed to refilm.

'You realise what you are saying right? I've already said all of this, I don't know what's wrong with it,' she is believed to have said, in clear view of the audience.

'I have no idea where we were in the show. It's so long ago. I don't know what to do for you guys.' 

According to sources on set, Jane didn't understand why producers were so unhappy with the original takes and requested they meet her in the dressing room after the taping.

At one stage, the comedic-actress asked if her co-host Randy Jackson needed to reshoot anything, and laughed when they said he didn't.

The show's reboot is currently being filmed in Sydney amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although the live audience will be Australian, the contestants used in the show are all Americans currently living Down Under.
