The Killing's Bex Taylor-Klaus Lands Recast Lead Role in MTV's Scream Pilot

Bex Taylor-Klaus on MTV's Scream

MTV is hoping to make its Scream pilot No. 1 — with a “Bullet” — by recasting a major role.

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

The daughter of a Lutheran pastor, Audrey is described as an artsy loner who aspires to be a filmmaker. The project — penned by Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin (Criminal Minds, The Event, Revenge) and helmed by Jamie Travis (Faking It, For a Good Time, Call…) — 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.”

In addition to the recast, Scream has also added Bobby Campo (Being Human), Connor Weil (Sharknado) and Joel Gretsch (Witches of East End) in recurring roles.

    Awesome news – not that I’ll be watching, LOL, as I aged out of MTV some time ago. But I do like Bex Taylor-Klaus and am happy to see her snag a big role.

  2. Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your weblog?
    My blog site is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my visitors
    would really benefit from a lot of the information you present here.
    Please let me know if this ok with you. Thank you!

    I might give this a chance because of her. Although, I lost a great deal of interest when they mentioned Ghostface likely won’t be in the MTV series.

    If you are casting an “artsy loner” type, Bex Taylor-Klaus is never a bad choice.

    Cool. This might make me check out the show (though I’m a little skeptical about it being on MTV). Both her (and Peter Sarsgaard) were my favorite characters on The Killing last season.

    I want her on ARROW…full time!

    • wordsmith says:

      As much as I love Arrow, and as much as I love Sin, they really don’t have enough for her character to be doing on the show to justify making her a regular.
      I’d rather she show up occasionally as needed a la Huntress or Deadshot rather than risk a lame and forced Laurel-esque subplot.

    Happy for Bex got her first leading role on the show! She been great on every show she’s been on.
