Hayden Panettiere, 33, looked incredible at the Scream 6 premiere on March 6. The actress, whose character, Kirby Reed, makes a highly-anticipated comeback in the new film, wore a silky black mini dress under a matching long blazer. She also added black sheer tights and black heels with straps to the stylish outfit as her blonde hair was up in a high bun with some loose strands framing her face.
Hayden’s appearance in Scream 6 is an exciting one since her character was presumed dead in Scream 4. Shortly after the news of her character’s return made headlines, fans took to social media to share their thoughts. “I’m just happy that she’s back,” one fan wrote on Twitter, while another wrote, “please don’t kill Kirby in Scream 6.”
Hayden has already discussed the return of her character in some interviews while promoting the new movie. She had taken a break from acting before the opportunity came up and knew she couldn’t let it go. “When [Scream] popped up and came back around, I was like, ‘I want to be a part of that again’ because I hoped that Kirby was still alive. I willed her back into existence and I called them,” she told Good Morning America on March 6.
“I actually called them … when they were doing Scream 5 and I was like, ‘Without me?! Wait. Hold on. I might still be alive, and I could come in handy,’” she added.
