  10. Sidney Prescott

Sure, Sidney beat out Gale, so far as the legacy characters go, despite the fact that Gale’s within the new film and Sidney fairly notably isn’t. Gale does are available in a number of notches later, at 13, however clearly curiosity continues to be excessive in Ms. Prescott, as followers wait to see if she’ll return for a future installment (and it’s additionally potential that some people, earlier than they noticed the film, needed to know if Sidney was within the movie in any case, in a cameo or such).

It’s a bit stunning that Hayden Panettiere’s Kirby Reed didn’t crack the High 10 (it was shut, at 12), contemplating how a lot of a fan-favorite she was in Scream IV and that many individuals could not have identified getting into that she was absolutely again for Scream VI  – possibly even not being conscious of the YouTube thumbnail Easter egg from 2022’s Scream that tell us Kirby was nonetheless alive.

Different characters not featured within the High 10 however nonetheless getting notable consideration have been earlier Ghostfaces Amber at #14, Stu at 15, and Jill at 19, which is a pleasant choice from the previous motion pictures. This is smart, given Scream VI instantly offers with the historical past of the Ghostface id and references each single earlier killer by identify.

Richie’s secret brother Ethan, performed by Jack Champion, was the true champion of those searches, taking the highest spot, although his sister, Quinn, and their revenge-minded father of the 12 months, Wayne, additionally made large showings at 4 and 6. The household that slays collectively, stays collectively.

However these aren’t the one linked members of the family we wish to focus on right here.

Take a look at the quantity 9 most clicked on web page on the wiki from this previous weekend: Christina Carpenter! Some could also be asking who Christina even is, given the identify hasn’t been mentioned on display screen.
