|Portrayed by||David Warner|
Gus Gold was Sidney Prescott's sympathetic drama instructor at Windsor College.
He spotted her great potential and cast her as Cassandra in the college's production of Agamemnon.
After the murders of Maureen Evans, Phil Stevens and Cici Cooper, Gus convinced Sidney to resume with the play, joking that he was desperate with no understudy. He helped Sidney realize that she is a fighter, and that she could handle whatever obstacles came her way.
During a rehearsal of the third act, Ghostface appeared to Sidney, and Gus immediately sensed something was wrong. He put a halt to the scene and checked on Sidney as she ran off the set.
- David Warner was personally chosen by Wes Craven for a cameo, because Craven had been impressed with Warner's acting ever since he saw him in The Omen.
