    In the film directed by Alexandre Ajamovie, Halle Berry plays a mother to twin sons tormented by paranormal forces. To play the part to perfection, Berry drew inspiration from her own experience as a mother to daughter Nahla Ariela, 16, and son Maceo-Robert, 10.

    Never Let Go’ follows Berry’s character as she does unthinkable things to ensure the safety of her family. She had admitted that the role was harrowing, pushing her to adopt the less appealing side of the job, method acting.

    The mom of two revealed how she had to skin a squirrel and wondered about her daughter Nahla’s reaction to it. “My daughter would be slightly grossed out and wondering why I would do that to a squirrel,” Berry remarked.

    “My son probably won’t see it. He’s a little scared, like, I don’t know, he might have nightmares. I don’t know if he should see it just yet,” she added.

    Never Let Go’ will hit the theatres on September 27 this year.
