Exclusive: Nico Tortorella Interview
The Scream 4 star spills his guts…
One of the new generation of actors/victims drafted into Scream 4, Nico Tortorella plays Trevor Sheldon, the boyfriend of Emma Roberts’ Jill. We spoke to him about breaking into acting, taking his first steps in the Scream world and pretending to be Ghostface…

How did you get into acting?
I’ve been acting since I was 8 – I used to play hockey and there was a kids’ theatre down the street from my house and one day I just walked in and signed up for auditions for The Wizard Of Oz. I went in, auditioned and got cast as a Munchkin. From that point on I just had to decide if I wanted to carry on with hockey or stick with the acting. And I jumped right in to acting and have been there since.

Did you watch the Scream films?
I didn’t watch the Scream films, I don’t even remember them coming out. I remember the parodies, like Scary Movie, but I didn’t watch any of the Scream films until after I auditioned. It was funny because the first audition at the casting was the last scene of the first Scream film, the murder scene, and I had no idea, went in with my whole own interpretation. I only realised afterwards so it was pretty embarrassing.

How did you get involved with the film?
I was doing auditions for different horror films at the time when the Scream auditions came up. Everyone was going for it, all my friends in LA and New York. I had a meeting with all the casting directors, then I auditioned four more times, in New York, LA, with the other cast and crew, in front of the Weinsteins. It was never ending. At one point they told me I was too tall to play the role – everyone else was already cast and they were all small so they thought I’d look out of place. Luckily on the 5th casting I got it! It was pretty much smooth sailing after that!

Tell us about your character?
I can’t say too much. Basically I play Trevor Sheldon, he’s the head honcho at school, he’s mean, he picks on people, he’s basically a total asshole to everyone – which was fun to play. But then when you see him on his own, not surrounded by other jocks and kids at school he’s actually a decent guy.

The strapline of the move is ‘new decade, new rules’. What are the new rules?
It’s been a decade of scary movies that have come out since Scream 3 – from all the Saw movies to the gore to the goreporn etc – this is taking it back to its roots. A lot more can happen this time around – it’s not as set in stone as the other ones.

What was it like to work with Wes?
Amazing! He’s a genius! One side is a genius with a crazy vocab – most of the time I couldn’t understand what he was saying! The other half of him is a little kid who loves making scary movies and scaring the crap out of everyone!

Did you get to wear the mask at any point? Off set, that is – don’t give anything away!
Oh yes! It was definitely on all of us! We all got a chance to run around with it on pretending to be the killer off camera. And we all stayed in different places in Michigan when Scream was being filmed so there were a lot of pranks going on – we’d sneak over to people’s houses and scare the shit outta them! It was fun. The whole summer was a big party – it was one of the best of my life!
