“House of Cards” actress Neve Campbell is calling a Donald Trump presidency her “biggest fear” and says she’ll hightail it back to Canada if it becomes a reality.

“It’s really scary,” the “Scream” and “Party of Five” star tells Huffington Post UK in an interview published Tuesday. “My biggest fear is that Trump will triumph.”

{mosads}Campbell told ITK at the season-four premiere of “House of Cards” last week in Washington that she’s rooting for Democratic White House hopeful Bernie Sanders, saying, “I’m a fan of Bernie’s.”

The Ontario-born performer, who is an American citizen and can vote in the 2016 election, says she has a plan if Trump’s GOP bid for the Oval Office is successful. If the real estate mogul wins, she contends, she’ll “move back to Canada.”

“I cannot believe that he is still in the game. I cannot conceive of how that’s possible,” Campbell, who makes her “House of Cards” debut as a political aide when the new season debuts on Friday, tells the Huffington Post.

Dubbing Trump “an ideologue” with “extreme ideas,” Campbell, 42, says, “And there is a good amount of ignorance in America, of people who are angry and disappointed but don’t educate themselves in why and how it can be fixed.”

“They see someone off the cuff and broad, and they think ‘OK, that’s the voice we need, just someone honest.’”

Campbell added, “But his honesty is terrifying.”
