  • Grew up watching the Scream movies.
  • Scream 4 was Emma's first horror movie role, as well as her first villainous role.

Behind the Scenes[]

  • Since Emma Roberts was the shortest cast member of the group of teens (standing at five feet two inches), she had to wear high heeled boots that gave her three extra inches to stand as tall as everyone else (the boots can actually be seen near the end of the film).
    • She also had to wear hair extensions since her hair was relatively short before production of the film.
