'Scream' Actress Bella Thorne Wasn't Even Alive When Original Came Out

MTV released the first eight minutes of its new series, "Scream," on June 25, in which Bella Thorne is seen playing a role quite similar to Drew Barrymore's in the 1996 original movie. If you recall that scene, things didn't end so well, so we can probably guess what happens to Thorne's character.

The 17-year-old actress appeared on "Late Night With Seth Meyers" to talk about her gruesome scene when he pointed out that she wasn't even born when the original film came out.

“I remember when the first 'Scream' film came out, it was really exciting for me,” Meyers said to Thorne. “A little depressing for me: You were not born when it came out.”

The "Shake It Up" actress was born Oct. 8, 1997, just two months before "Scream 2" was released. But though she missed the film's theatre debut, she did admit to watching the horror film later and loving it.

She went on to talk about how fun it was to shoot gory horror scenes, saying, "It's the most fun. I think it's even more fun than shooting something comedic. You're always messing around with the blood ... after I was done, I was covered in blood and I went around hugging all the producers and getting them all bloody."
