Neve Campbell has spoken further about her decision to leave the Scream franchise and the reasons for it.

According to reports, the actress, who has appeared in all five films in the popular horror series, made an announcement in June that she will not be returning to the series for the upcoming sixth series which is a result of salary disputes.

She explained, “As a woman, I have had to work extremely hard in my career to establish my value, especially when it comes to Scream.” Continuing, “I felt the offer that was presented to me did not equate to the value I have brought to the franchise.”

As part of a new interview, the star of Scream, who is known to fans as iconic survivor Sidney Prescott, shares what transpired behind her decision to quit the hit horror franchise after many years of working on it.
While speaking to the magazine about a new campaign video for the American Red Cross, Campbell said, “I did not feel that what I was being offered equated to the value that I bring to this franchise and have brought to this franchise for 25 years.”

Ultimately, she described the reasons for her decision as negotiation-related. The 48-years-old actress added, “And as a woman in this business, I think it is really important for us to be valued and to fight to be valued. [So] I honestly do not believe that if I were a man and had done five installments of a huge blockbuster franchise over 25 years, that the number that I was offered would be the number that would be offered to a man.”

Her inability to return for the next film is due to this reason, she says. Campbell said, “In my soul, I just could not do that. I could not walk on set feeling …. undervalued and feeling the unfairness, or lack of fairness, around that.”
