Bad TV #1: Final Girl

Audrey from Scream: the TV Series was the bisexual heroine of a horror universe I didn’t know I needed. In the classic form of a slasher, she faced relentless tragedy as her friends are killed by a mysterious villain. Audrey was played by Bex Taylor-Klaus, who is gay in real life and a general dreamboat. Audrey did not have a typically feminine style or manner, which is unusual for young women on TV, and despite everything, she continued to survive.
