Not many actors can demand a role in a film and Halle Berry is definitely one of them. Berry was so determined in being a part of the new John Wick film that she cold-called the film director, Chad Stahelski to state why she should appear in the movie.

“I got a call saying, ‘Halle Berry would like to meet with you.’ I was like, ‘That’s cool.’ I’d never met her before. She came to my offices in Manhattan Beach the next day, walked right in, sat down, goes, ‘I want a part in John Wick 3. I’m like, well, ‘That’s very flattering, but we don’t have a script yet.’ She said, ‘I don’t care.’ I’m like, ‘Well, I don’t even know if there’s a female [part].’ She goes, ‘I don’t care, I want to be in it, let’s party.’” He said.

Chad stated that he would go on and follow-up with Halle five months later to see if she was serious. The Oscar-winning actress responded by saying she was still interested and asked when the training starts.

“It was like, ‘Okay, let’s just call her back and see if she’s still interested,” he said. “And she was like, ‘Of course I’m fucking interested. When do we start training?’”

John Wick is set to be released in theaters on May 17.
