‘Scream’ Legacy Actors Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette on Reprising Their Roles [Interview]

Published

Scream‘s Sidney Prescott, Gale Weathers, and Dewey Riley have endured countless stabs and gunshot wounds between them, enduring and outlasting multiple Ghostface encounters across four movies spanning twenty-five years. Now they’re back once again to help a new generation fend off Ghostface.

It’s safe to say that no one knows these characters or this franchise quite like Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette. With Sidney, Gale, and Dewey now older and wiser, how much of that comes from the script versus the actors knowing these characters inside and out? And what was it like collaborating with the new filmmakers?

The trio answered these questions in a recent chat with Bloody Disgusting ahead of Scream‘s January 14 theatrical release.

[Sidney] is now a mother… she’s at a place in her life where she’s not living in fear, she’s not hiding anymore, she’s… more content, more peaceful,” Campbell explains franchise heroine Sidney Prescott’s life 10 years removed from Scream 4. “She’s in charge in a sense, being a mom, and I think that brings a new ferocity to Sidney.”

Dewey’s life hasn’t turned out exactly the way he expected,” Arquette chimes in. “He’s living in a trailer… sort of re-evaluating his life. But yeah. It was all on the page.”

Cox notes, “Gale got what she wanted – maybe not personally, but professionally. She’s happy to be known around, at least America. She wanted fame and to be recognized and she got it.”
