Actor Trevor Stovall Talks About His Latest Vampire Movie, “Aaron’s Blood”

“Aaron's Blood”

Trevor Stovall is a young actor who began acting in 2005 and in celebration of his latest movie, the horror thriller “Aaron’s Blood,” about a father’s fight to save his 12-year-old hemophiliac son after becoming infected with vampire blood, I recently had the opportunity to speak with him about the film and acting in general. You can also read my review of the movie here.

Tracee Bond
Tell us, Trevor, how you came about this role and what you had to do to prepare for it?

Trevor Stovall
Well, my dad wrote this movie because I said a long time ago that I wanted to play a vampire. Before we started shooting, I worked with an acting coach to figure out the character.

Tracee Bond
What type of message do you think this film sends as it relates to bullying and how most young people deal with it?

Trevor Stovall
I think it shows how kids who get bullied have to deal with it on their own and how they want to keep things secret. Also how they don’t want their parents to fix it for them.

Tracee Bond
I’m trying to imagine whether the scariest part is Tate actually turning into a person who craves blood or his willingness to endure harsh treatment because of the illness. What are your thoughts on that?

Trevor Stovall
I think Tate doesn’t want to hurt people and when he realizes he has to keep drinking blood to live, he would rather die. He likes that it makes him stronger, but maybe it’s not worth it.

Tracee Bond
Tell us about the relationship you have with the writer and director, Tommy Stovall, and whether the foundation made you a better actor?

Trevor Stovall
He’s my dad and we’re able to talk about stuff at home while we’re working on the movie. I think I understand what he wants me to do better because of the way he knows me and talks to me.

Tracee Bond
What is the overall message that this film is trying to convey?

Trevor Stovall
Sometimes you really want something, but when you get it, you find out it’s not what you thought it would be. Like Tate wants to be stronger, but he has to become a vampire and doesn’t want to be one. And Aaron, being his dad, will do anything to help him.

Tracee Bond
Do you have any personal interests in vampires and why do you think the world is so intrigued by them?

Trevor Stovall
I just thought vampires were cool when I was a little kid. I’m not sure why. I think maybe people like the idea of living forever.

Tracee Bond
What other projects are you working on and what would you say was the most challenging aspect of this role?

Trevor Stovall
I’ve been doing auditions and I think I might do a small part in my dad’s next movie. The most challenging thing with Tate was really trying to get inside the character and show how he was feeling.

Tracee Bond
The type of bond that you and Aaron share seems to be an awkward, yet functional relationship that was necessary to build the plot. Is this something you had to work hard at achieving? Were there any learning curves?

Trevor Stovall
I think with Aaron and Tate, they are like most normal fathers and sons. It was kind of weird doing scenes with James where I had to be mad because we hung out and had fun off the set.

Tracee Bond
What do you hope the audience will gain by viewing “Aaron’s Blood?”

Trevor Stovall
I hope they like it and enjoy it.

“Aaron’s Blood” is now available to own on Blu-ray, DVD & On Demand
