We were recently joined on the Popternative show by Devyn who plays Anika, Mindy’s new girlfriend. Devyn discusses what it’s like to be part of the Scream franchise, and we also asked her about the audition process for her role. She explains how she didn’t actually know she was auditioning for a Scream movie when she sent in her self tape:

They were being pretty secretive about it so I didn’t know that I was auditioning for Scream. So I sent in this audition, I was pretty sure I filmed it with my boyfriend, didn’t really do my makeup, I feel like I didn’t put that much effort into my audition now that I’m looking back at it. And then my manager calls and she’s like “so you have a call-back, and by the way this is for Scream” and I’m like “are you kidding me! Why didn’t anyone tell me this!” They’re like “we didn’t want to freak you out so we kept it lowkey.”
