You may not have known her name, actress Denise Boutte is a familiar pretty face whose been in several TV shows and movies including Why Did I Get Married and Meet The Browns. But this time she has a leading role in the TV One faith-based movie For the Love of Ruth co-starring Loretta Devine, James Pickens and Gary Dourdan airing on Saturday, May 9 at 8 p.m. It is based on the Biblical story of Ruth, as part of TV One’s contemporary adaptations of faith-based content.
Boutte is a Louisiana native who has been working for years.
“It was an amazing experience,” Boutte says of working on the film. “I call Gary Dourdan Mr. Smolder, because of those eyes. It’s something that everyone can relate. Sometimes with Biblical stories people think you’re going to throw Bible verse after Bible verse at them, and they can’t relate to it. It’s just a human version of compassion, of love, of committment. It’s beautiful.”
