Neve Campbell, famous for her role as Sidney Prescott in the Scream films, will be making her first appearance ever at a convention at next year's Texas Frightmare Weekend. As is the TFW tradition, she'll be available all weekend long for autographs, photos, and panels.
The actress, known also for The Craft, has never done a convention before so this will be the first time fans will be able to meet her in person whilst in the world of Horror.
After Drew Barrymore turned down the role as Sidney Prescott for the smaller role of Casey, Neve became the lead in 1996's Scream. In many interviews since her debut as Sidney, she had reservations about being known as a Scream Queen, but in recent years she seems to have finally embraced the title.
Neve joins the already announced list that includes Tara Reid, Josh (The Collection) Stewart, C. Thomas Howell, Malcolm McDowell, Joseph ("Game of Thrones") Gatt, and a first-time pairing of I Spit on Your Grave lead Camille Keaton and director Meir Zarchi with MANY more to come.
The 10th anniversary Texas Frightmare Weekend will be at the DFW Hyatt Regency in Dallas, Texas, running May 1-3, 2015.
