MTV’s Scream TV Spin-Off Recasts Lead Role, The Killing‘s Bex Taylor Joins Cast

MTV is working on a TV-spin off of the famous Scream movie franchise and has now recast one of the script’s major roles.

Bex Taylor-Klaus (The Killing) will now play Audrey Jensen, best friend of Willa Fitzgerald’s Emma. She replaces Reign‘s Amy Forsyth, a change that was reportedly made after the table read for the pilot, according to Deadline.

The daughter of a Lutheran pastor, Audrey is described as a loner who wants to become a filmmaker. The project — penned by Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin (Criminal Minds, The Event, Revenge) and captained by Jamie Travis (Faking It) — kicks off with a YouTube video going viral, which will have adverse repercussions for Audrey and seemingly serve as the “catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to [her] town’s troubled past.”

The show has also added Bobby Campo (Being Human), Connor Weil (Sharknado) and Joel Gretsch (Witches of East End) in recurring roles.
