Neve Campbell on her bond with Courteney Cox

Neve talked about her bond with Courteney in a recent interview..

Had you stayed in touch with Wes Craven, Courteney Cox and David Arquette and other people from the original movies? Or had you lost touch?

Campbell: We’d lost touch a bit. Time goes by, and I was living in England. . . . It’s hard to keep in touch with everybody that you’ve worked with.

Courteney and I definitely bonded on this one more than we had on the others, and we’re not really sure why we didn’t get to do that before. But it seemed like we had more time together on this film. We really enjoyed each other’s company — it was great. So we’ve been in better touch now. I love David and Courteney. They’re fantastic people. And Wes is a beautiful, beautiful man. A wonderful director.

Why did you and Courteney bond more? Did you have more screen time together in this film?

Campbell: No, we didn’t have that many scenes together. I don’t know what it is. Perhaps it’s that on the first film it would seem that our age gap was larger at the time. I was 21 at the time, she was a bit older and maybe we had less things to relate on. But also on those films, she was spending more time with David and on this one, he had actually a lot more scenes with other characters. So he was off working, and she and I found time with each other and got to know each other better. It was really nice. She’s a wonderful woman.

There are two groups of actors in “Scream 4”: the veterans who have been in the previous films and this whole group of new, younger actors. Was it like high school, where one group sits at one table in the cafeteria and the other group sits at another table, or was it easy to merge the two?

Campbell: No, we all got along. They’re all professionals in their own right. It was funny at the read-through, though. Courteney and I were sitting next to each other, and we looked at each other and said, “We could be their mothers.” Young moms, but we could.

They’re great. As I said, they’re all professional in their own right. They’ve all had careers — Rory [Culkin] and Emma [Roberts] and Hayden [Panetierre] have all been working for a while, and they knew what they were doing. They all came in with a great amount of enthusiasm. And they’re good kids, good people. So we had fun.

Campbell: No, we all got along. They’re all professionals in their own right. It was funny at the read-through, though. Courteney and I were sitting next to each other, and we looked at each other and said, “We could be their mothers.” Young moms, but we could.
