It has been a fully packed year for Alison Brie, bouncing between her roles on two critically acclaimed shows – Annie in Community and Trudy in Mad Men, and now has another tick on her resume – Rebecca in Scream 4. Brie discussed her role at the tail end of an interview with Vulture. Here’s what she had to say:
I mostly work with Neve Campbell. My character works for her, and she’s a little go-getter, sort of like Annie in eight years but bitchier. She’s sort of a hybrid of Annie and Trudy. I was really into the Scream movies as a teenager, and I remember they shot some of the second one in my hometown, south Pasadena, and I’d drive by and see them shooting late at night and my friends and I thought it was so cool. It’s really come full circle. I was obsessed! I own Scream the original on videotape, and my friends and I made a parody called Yell. I could probably recite 90 percent of the lines. I didn’t tell them this, of course.
