MTV’s Scream has been in the making for a while. It was first announced that the show had a pilot order in May of 2013, but it wasn’t until more than a year later that it finally found its cast and director. And now, there’s been a change to that cast.
EW has confirmed that Bex Taylor-Klaus, who plays Sin on The CW’s Arrow, will replace Amy Forsyth in the lead role of Audrey Jensen, who was originally described as “the daughter of a Lutheran pastor” and “an artsy loner who aspired to be a filmmaker.” There’s no word yet on why Forsyth left the television remake.
In additional casting news, the show has added Bobby Campo, Connor Weil, and Joel Gretsch. Campo will play Seth Branson, “the hot English teacher at Lakewood High” who’s “got an easy charm and is clearly one of the ‘cool’ teachers, who can go with it if a lesson plan gets a little off-track.” Weil will take on the role of Will Belmont, “an all-American high school basketball player who adores his girlfriend, Emma.” As for Gretsch, he’ll play Sheriff Clark Hudson, “good guy and good Sheriff and father to Kieran (Amadeus Serafini).”
