News Why Lea Michele and Ariana Grande Refused to Scream on "Scream Queens" In a new interview with Women's Health, actress Lea Michele reveals why she and Ariana Grande told director Ryan Murphy that they won't be giving any blood-curdling screams on Fox's new campy horror series "Scream Queens."

"I refuse to scream on the show," Michele said. "Ryan got me in a booth one day and I told him 'I'm screaming like twice and then you're going to have to use it the whole season' because I'm a singer and I was there with Ariana Grande and we were like 'We can't scream, this is our gift.' So I don't scream, they just dub it in. But they say I do a really good scream face without having to scream."
