Mason Gooding & Jasmin Savoy Brown

Gooding and Brown play Chad and Mindy Meeks-Martin in Scream.

This movie is a real full circle moment for Mason, who actually wrote a paper about the franchise when he was in college.

He told Sarina, "The topic was how Scream was the one franchise in media that maybe was right for revival in this current time."

Shocked, his co-star, Jasmin, replied, "What?! You manifested this."

"I think I got an A- if I remember..." the actor said.

Sarina turned the topic of conversation to Jasmin, and asked how she helped shape her character Mindy.

"Well, Mindy is a queer woman of colour, as am I," she began her response.

"So first of all, that's such a huge honour to get to bring her to life in this franchise."

The actress said she suggested changes to certain scenes in order to make them feel more, "lived in and true to [her]."

Sarina asked the actors about the first time they met Ghost Face in the flesh, and how it made them feel.

Jasmin said, "Oh it's just spooky! It's just this feeling of, 'I'd rather not be near you!'"

Sonia Ammar, Mikey Madison & Jenna Ortega

Sonia Ammar, Mikey Madison, and Jenna Ortega are Liv McKenzie, Amber Freeman, and Tara Carpenter in Scream.

Sarina asked Sonia how she managed to make this film, considering she recently described herself as a, "baby who gets scared easily."

She laughed, "I am so terrified of everything - jump scares, blood - I cannot. In real life, I'll faint if I see any kind of blood."

Sonia explained that she likes to challenge herself to step out of her comfort zone and face her fears.

For that reason, and the fact that she's a fan of the franchise, she was happy to take part in the new Scream movie.

Sarina asked Jenna what it was like acting alongside Ghost Face.

She told the hilarious story of how she accidentally clicked onto an adorable video of a dog during a phone scene.

"I had to pretend like I had just received the worst news of my life... this killer was about to attack me..."

Marley Shelton & Dylan Minnette

Marley Shelton is back as, now Sheriff, Judy Hicks and Dylan Minnette plays her son, Wes Hicks, in Scream.

Sarina asked Marley how she felt getting the call to say they were making this movie: "I couldn't believe it! I was like, 'That is amazing!'"

"It was during the pandemic and so, just the idea of getting to do something creative and let alone be part of this beloved franchise, I was ecstatic."
