Neve Campbell was offered "three horror films" in just one week after becoming known for her role in 'Scream'
Neve Campbell was offered "three horror films" in a week after 'Scream'.
The actress was cast as survivor Sidney Prescott in Wes Craven's slasher franchise, appearing in all four films from 1996 to 2011, but is still haunted by the part after she became the queen of the genre,
She said: "I was offered three horror films last week."
And the 42-year-old actress is relieved her stint in the film series is over now.
She said: "I'm so glad those days are over. I felt I was being forced into being something I wasn't - all the time."
The star - who has a three-year-old son, Caspian, with her partner JJ Feild - has joined political drama 'House of Cards' in its fourth season and is delighted with her new role.
She said: "I couldn't have asked for a better role after a few years away having a child. I don't want to carry a network show.
"I don't want to give up 10 months, working 17 hours a day, up at five in the morning. Not with a three-and-a half-year-old son. I don't crave that attention. I've had it, don't need it again. So this is perfect."
The Canadian actress stars alongside Kevin Spacey as President Frank Underwood and Robin Wright - who plays Frank's estranged wife Claire - as a hard-boiled political fundraiser sucked into the vortex of Frank's relentless campaign for political domination.
And she admires Robin for both her portrayal of Claire, and for directing several of the season's episodes.
She said: "She's driven to go beyond acting. I'm not so driven. I don't have control issues either."
