I read a sentence in a chapter named "Poet and Pancakes" which was:

An extremely talented actress, who was also extremely temperamental, once blew over on the sets.

Most of the dictionaries define this phrase as - (of a situation) to calm down or to pass with little effect. But that doesn't seem to fit here.

Your quote is incorrect. The quote, from "Fourteen Years with Boss" actually reads:

An extremely talented actress, who was also extremely temperamental, once blew up on the sets.

"Blow up" in this context means to have an angry outburst, which would seem to fit with the character of the "temperamental" actress.
