With the cast of the Scream movies signed on for the fourth installment of the slasher series, Neve Campbell is gearing up to reprise the role of Sidney Prescott. So, what’s her secret to playing the plucky heroine?

“Physically speaking, it’s all about working the bob!” she tells BlackBook magazine. “And the only way I can achieve that properly every day on set is through Tara Smith hair products.

“Seriously, if Tara didn’t cut and style my hair in an amazing girly way to re-create the Sidney look, I wouldn’t have a starting point [for the character]. I’m not kidding. Hers are the only products I can use without killing my hair and skin, as they are 100 percent organic and free of chemicals.”

Courteney Cox recently mused about the story arc for her character Gale Weathers and her husband Dwight “Dewey” Riley (played by real-life hubby David Arquette). Is Neve, 35, still in touch with her old co-stars?

“Oh, yes. Completely,” says Neve, who lives in London with her British husband John Light. “I haven’t spoken to them in a while.

“I’m sure it took a while to convince them to take part [in the picture], especially because they’re now a very happy family, and of course, it was a long journey for them. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun, and a lot like going back to summer camp.”
