Character(s) Casey Becker

Drew Blyth Barrymore is an actress who, as a child, played Charlie McGee in Firestarter. She later portrays Casey Becker in Scream.

She was originally cast as Sidney Prescott in the film, but Drew decided that she wanted the role of Casey instead. The reason behind it was that if she was to be murdered in the film, it would give the audience the impression that anything can happen since she was a famous actress and people would expect her to be the star. This was also the reason why she appeared in front of all the other characters on the promotional movie poster. She was a very well known actress when cast in Scream and at the time that the film was released it was very rare to cast well known actors in horror movies and Drew's presence in the film allowed for the rest of the sequels and other horror movies to attract well know actors. To make her cry, Wes Craven told Drew about animal cruelty, Drew being an animal lover started crying.
