Jasmin Savoy Brown on That Unforgettable Horror-Loving Monologue

Mason Gooding also discusses why Chad does not follow in Randy’s footsteps like Mindy.

Jasmin Savoy Brown and Mason Gooding Scream Interview

We will be here all day if I start rattling off everything I love about the new Scream movies, but two things in the absolute top of the mile-long list involve Jasmin Savoy Brown.

First Brown and Mason Gooding are frequent stage-thieves like the twins Mindy and Chad Meeks-Martin. Their chemistry, delivery, and comic timing are spot-on, and they light up the screen when they are on it. Secondly this new Scream the movie feels like it was made by fans for fans. (And also for future fans.) As with everyone else Scream film, this fifth episode makes fun of the franchise and the genre in general, but it is made in a loving way that pays homage to the enthusiasm for the series, and there is one moment in particular that captures the quality of the film to the absolute max. It is an expert monologue provided by Brown.

With Scream now out in the cinemas I got the chance to chat with Brown and Gooding about their experience of making the film, and given the fact that Mindy’s monologue ended up being a personal favorite scene in the film, I had to ask Brown about to handle it.

“It was exciting and scary. There’s a sense that I do not want to let anyone down. I know I represent an entire community in this monologue and that these words are true and that people feel that way about this film and other movies.And I have so much love for the community of people who are so passionate.I’m a Broadway nerd.I feel like I could apply the same as you might feel about horror movies on Broadway and musicals and I just had to approach it as if I was talking about the revival of Company or something. [Laughs] You know what I mean? Because I identify gutturally. “

Gooding jumped in to further highlight how impressive Brown’s work was in that scene on the set:

“I would also like all the attention pointed to how many times [Jasmin] had to make that monologue and how it was done every single time with the same amount of energy and enthusiasm. ”
