To start things off, can you introduce yourself to the readers?

Iím Bouvier. My latest film Blood Tulips premiered at The Horror-on-sea Film Festival in Essex England. I starred in it as Starla, co-wrote and co-produced it. The response st the film festival was tremendous.

It received three rounds of applause and a standing ovation which was very rewarding and impressive and made the difficult process of doing the film all worth it. This is the 5th film Iíve starred in. My other films are Venice Beach, Surgikill and Club Lingerie

What is the best thing about working in horror?

The best thing I find about working in horror films is the creativity it offers fantasy, scaring people that like to be scared, and a dream world that can only be imagined unless actually living it while watching a horror film

Can you say anything about the movie Blood Tulip?

What I can say about Blood Tulips is that it was the most challenge Iíve ever faced. A little scary taking American actors to Holland (a foreign country) and taking a chance to pick up a couple crew members there, which luckily worked out, scheduling and coordinating, We were also concerned about the weather since it rains a lot and could pour but we had a lucky break that it was clear and mild.

People we didnít even know let us use their shops and restaurants to shoot scenes. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. We shot streets scenes in the Red Light District of Amsterdam and in the town square of Delft with no problems. There were however delays in starting the film and delays in post production due to the scenes of authenticity involving the Second World War.

The film is based on true events dealing with The Holocaust, human trafficking, rare art theft rings and the Amsterdam Red Light District.

What was the project you learned the most from?
 
I believe Blood Tulips was the project I learned the most from because of all the many complex issues both in the US and a foreign country that had to be dealt with such as air travel, lodging, locations, wardrobe that had to be looked for and purchased in Holland and foreign crew, etc

My favorite recent horror film, outside of Blood Tulips, was Joker. Terrifying

My favorite horror film was Misery with Kathy Bates and Carrie, an old film but it was so frightening that at the end when the hand suddenly pops out of the grave I screamed and was shaking and grabbed ahold of my loved one
 

How do you prepare for a movie?
 
I prepare for a movie in various ways. As a writer I try to think of a unusual and different story that I havenít seen before and put in a plot and sometimes one or two subplots and then weave the story around it.

I try as much as possible to use true events something recent or from the past As an actress I, of course, study and learn my lines first and then for my character I draw from true experiences or people I know that lived through an experience that I need or similar, and then I become the character.
 

If you could work with any actors or actresses who would they be and why?

The actors and actresses I would like most to work with are Johnny Depp because I like his characterization, films, and acting style and the same for Jack Nicholson and Joaquin Phoenix and because they are great actors.

The actresses Iíd most like to work with are Kathy Bates, Meryl Streep, abs Scarlet Johansson because their films are always box office and the scripts are well written and they are all great actresses and Iím inspired by all of these actors and actresses.
