Neve Campbell has spoken out about her decision not to reprise her role as legendary final girl Sidney Prescott in the upcoming Scream film.

The sixth instalment is set to be the first film in Scream’s 26-year history to not star Campbell, who has carried the slasher movies since 1996. “I did not feel that what I was being offered equated to the value that I bring to this franchise, and have brought to this franchise, for 25 years,” the 48-year-old told People. “And as a woman in this business, I think it’s really important for us to be valued and to fight to be valued.” The star, who is currently playing Maggie McPherson in The Lincoln Lawyer, also stated that she feels the offer would have been different had she been a man.

Campbell continued: “I honestly don’t believe that if I were a man and had done five instalments of a huge blockbuster franchise over 25 years, that the number that I was offered would be the number that would be offered to a man. “And in my soul, I just couldn’t do that.
