We totally understand why we haven’t see Hayden Panettiere in anything in awhile. The actress had taken time off to work on herself and it’s one of the most important things that anyone could and should do. Hayden said that taking those four years off for herself was “one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life and my career.”
Returning to acting couldn’t be easy. We imagine that it was hard, but we also admire the courage she showed coming back and chasing after a role that she wanted. The actress had heard they were doing Scream 5 she reached out and said to them, “‘By the way, I might be alive still! And I might be useful! Please, if there is a way, bring me back.”
And they did for Scream 6. Her character of Kirby has become an FBI agent, always on alert for the return of Ghostface.
“It was daunting, honestly,” she told Entertainment Weekly about her return to acting. “I was a little bit worried. I was worried that I couldn’t act anymore. I mean, I took four years off.”
She continued, adding, “I had to remind myself of what I could do and to make sure that I could still do it. But I knew I made the right decision. This was the best, the best first movie back that I could have dreamt of. It was like coming home. I was 21 when I did Scream 4, and Wes Craven, the whole cast, the whole crew, it was such a family. I was hoping to find the same thing here, and I very definitely did.”
