Courteney Cox Talks Filming ‘Scream 6’ Without Neve Campbell: ‘Missed Working With Her’

The ‘Scream’ franchise won’t be the same without Neve Campbell! At least that’s what Courteney Cox thinks.

Fans of the horror genre know that these two talented actresses have appeared in the slasher series as the longest original cast. However, Campbell did not reprise his role as protagonist Sidney Prescott in the latest installment.

“Scream VI” marked the first sequel without the iconic leading lady, Campbell, since its inception in 1996. After playing the same character for over a decade, the Canadian heartthrob’s absence in the new film was keenly felt by her friends. Here’s what Cox had to say!

Although Cox is known for playing Monica Geller on the NBC sitcom “Friends,” the blue-eyed beauty similarly stole our hearts with her performance as Gale Weathers on the “Scream” series.

After nearly three decades of owning this character, the 58-year-old is the last original cast member to return in the show’s upcoming sixth installment. The horror film will be released next month, but without Campbell.

“I missed working with her, but I’ll support whatever she thinks is right,” Cox said of her friend’s absence before talking about her role in the film. “I have a really good scene with Ghostface, and it was amazing.”

TThe Gold Derby Award winner continued, “Obviously I’ve been stabbed a lot of times and all that, but this time, working with Ghostface and not knowing who’s under the mask, it was really fun,” noting that she usually knew who the killer was when she was stabbed.

Cox avoided dropping any bombshells about her character or the film’s plot. However, the TV personality shared a few details to keep fans excited about the upcoming film.

According to the entertainer, her character still lives in New York, but her peaceful life was disrupted when the killer appeared. Ghostface’s return coincides with Sam (played by Melissa Barrera) and Taras (played by Jenna Ortega) moving to the big city.

Like the previous sequels, Gale Weathers continues to write stories about the group’s deadly adventures with the killer. “She wrote a book afterwards,” Cox revealed of her character. “She told Sam she wasn’t going to do it, and then of course she did it because, I mean, someone was going to do it. So she had to.”

Additionally, the Alabama beauty confirmed that several characters would return in the sixth installment, including Hayden Panettiere’s fictional role as Kirby, a face that appeared in “Scream IV.”

“It’s so interesting how people came back. I have to remember. I thought she died! I get so confused,” the Lucy Award winner explained. “There have been so many. I’m just so excited to be a part of something this long.”

It seems the cast would make history without Campbell, as Cox admitted that “Scream VI” was a slasher masterpiece. After watching part of the film without an audience, the 58-year-old’s reaction was “Wow”.

“I was excited, I was scared,” gushed the entertainer. “Even though I know every single person and what’s going to happen and why and when, I’m not going to watch. It’s so realistic. And I laughed! I cared.”

Jenna Ortega Opens Up About Neve Campbell’s Absence From ‘Scream VI’

Cox hasn’t been the only “Scream” star to address Campbell’s exit and what it means for the franchise. Last year, Jenna Ortega assured fans that they would be too invested in the sixth installment to care about the Canadian actress’ absence

“I feel like I can’t talk too much about it just because it’s not necessarily my character,” the Netflix star said. “But I will say that there’s so much going on in this next one, it’s so action-heavy and so heavy that I think you’re almost going to get distracted.”

Does that mean the showrunners wiped all traces of Sidney Prescott? No, Ortega confirmed that there were references to Campbell’s character in the film. “You know, it’s nice because there’s still a protective effect in the script,” the 20-year-old revealed.

“It’s something that the cast naturally had over her because obviously we respect her and we want the best for her,” the Disney alum added, noting that the actress was missed and in the thoughts of her former co-stars.
