Parade: Plucking Chickens for Tulip Fever and Her Love of J.K. Rowling

With roles in Cinderella, My Cousin Rachel and Bonnie & Clyde, Holliday Grainger, 29, adds another “period-piece” role in Tulip Fever, in theaters September 1. She plays Maria, the maid to a woman (Alicia Vikander) who begins a passionate affair with a poor artist (Dane DeHaan) during the tulip mania of 17th-century Amsterdam, when prices of tulip bulbs reached extraordinarily high levels and then collapsed.

What impressed you about the story?

There were so many different levels of society, from the rich guy all the way down to the fishmonger and the struggling artist. In that respect, Amsterdam felt like a contemporary, cosmopolitan city.

What about Maria did you relate to?

She is unswaying in her morals. I think Maria is one of the only characters with solidity and earthiness that feels a bit of a grounding in the midst of this mad story.

‘Tulip Fever’ Gets a Release Date

Directed by Justin Chadwick, the long-gestating period drama also stars Dean DeHaan and Christoph Waltz.
Tulip Fever is finally blooming.

The period drama — starring Oscar winner Alicia Vikander opposite Dean DeHaan and Christoph Waltz {and Holliday Grainger} — will open in select theaters July 15, The Weinstein Co. announced Tuesday.

A passion project for British producer Alison Owen, Tulip Fever is based on Deborah Moggach’s novel about an artist (DeHaan) who falls in love with a married woman (Vikander) after he’s commissioned by the husband (Waltz) to paint her portrait. Justin Chadwick directed from an adapted script by Tom Stoppard.

The film is set in Netherlands in the early 17th century, during the period known as Tulip Mania, when single bulbs would sell for enormous sums. In Tulip Fever, the two young lovers decide to invest in the risky tulip market in order to build a future together.

Harvey Weinstein has become a huge proponent of opening specialty films year-round, versus crowding them into the fall corridor (the heart of award season).

Tulip Fever, shot in 2014, has been finished for a year but only now has a release date.
