Film wasn't first love for Campbell

Neve Campbell hits cinema screens soon in the fourth instalment of the Scream franchise, but the star has revealed she never wanted to be an actress.

The 37-year-old, who has played Sidney Prescott in all four of Wes Craven's hit slasher films, dreamed of becoming a dancer as a child.

"I never wanted to be an actor. It was something I found a passion for; it wasn't there immediately," she told the Guardian.

When Neve landed a role on the US TV show Party Of Five, she had just quit dancing and found the transition difficult.

"It was still raw. I couldn't even go to watch any dance without getting upset. I couldn't listen to classical music without bursting into tears," she said.

"(But) you start to love the good moments. You realise something magical has just happened, or that you've done something people are touched by. That's addictive."

Neve also revealed she was unsure about making a fourth Scream film until writer Kevin Williamson persuaded her to talk part.

"I felt we'd done such a good trilogy that we shouldn't push our luck. Then Kevin pitched me his idea and I thought, 'This could actually be really great.' I knew it would be fun to see everyone again," she added.

Scream 4 is in cinemas on April 15.

An impulsive person like you must to protect their heart. That's hard to do after you've made an intense connection. Focus instead on forming a bond based on mutual interests and shared ideas. If your affection keeps growing, then you can pursue a more serious commitment. Until then, keep things light.More
