Taraji P. Henson gives us a little more insight into her character Terri in the upcoming thriller, No Good Deed.

“She had that one good moment where she wanted to be a good samaritan,” says Henson of Terri’s decision to let Colin Evans (Idris Elba), a stranger, into her home.

Evans goes on to terrorize Terri and her two children. But not without a fight from Terri. “There was never a moment where she was helpless,” says Henson. “She was always thinking, ‘How can I get out of this.’”

No Good Deed opens in theaters September 12.
