The character she plays in the movie is also called Louise, named after her by Scoffer Studios, the all-woman production company behind the film. The character is seen in a nightclub called Dahlia, named in a tribute to an actress called Elizabeth Short but nicknamed 'Black Dahlia' who was murdered in Los Angeles in the 1940s.

I'm trying to get him to commit himself to me." In one scene in the nightclub the pair argue and the character Louise is seen acting "really powerful".

"It's a really dark, sinister horror," Louise said of the basic premise of Dagon: Troll World Chronicles. "It's a bit like Cops and Robbers. It's like a sleazy, syndicate crime film. It gives you that chill sort of thing, it's that kind of animation where you're shouting at the screen. Even though it's an animated horror, it's quite graphic."
Diana said of wanting to keep Louise's Hull accent in the film: "With Louise, even though in my Dagon film she's doing an alien because it's on the planet Goth, she has such a joyful voice.
"When she leaves me messages on my Facebook messages, she talks so naturally, fluently and authentically with such a joyful attitude. I didn't want to touch that because I wanted her true spirit to come through the part."
"I just feel like she's a kindred spirit," added Diana of Louise, who likewise said she got on very well with Diana. And Louise will not only star in Dagon: Troll World Chronicles but also is set to play a small role in zombie apocalypse movie Blood Brothers. "She's going to be in a TV or radio station and she's going to be talking about the zombies attacking Buckingham Palace," said Diana, who hinted that the newsreader she plays may be "doomed".
