Neve Campbell - Biography

 

Neve Adrianne Campbell (pronounced /ˈnɛv ˈkæmbəl/, "nev camble"; born October 3, 1973) is a Canadian actress. Beginning her career on stage, she came to fame on the 1990s television series Party of Five, playing the role of the teenager Julia Salinger. She subsequently appeared in leading roles in several Hollywood films, including Scream, The Craft, and Wild Things, and has since appeared in smaller parts and returned to stage roles.

Campbell was born in Guelph, Ontario. Campbell's mother, Marnie (née Neve), is a yoga instructor and psychologist from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Her father, Gerry Campbell, an immigrant to Canada from the East End of Glasgow, Scotland, taught high school drama classes in Mississauga, Ontario — first at Westwood Secondary School (now Lincoln M. Alexander Secondary School), later at Lorne Park Secondary School, and now at Erindale Secondary School. Campbell's maternal grandparents ran a theatre company in the Netherlands and her paternal grandparents were also performers. Campbell is Roman Catholic, but also identifies as Jewish because of her mother's Sephardic Jewish ancestry, about which she has said: "I am a practicing Catholic, but my lineage is Jewish, so if someone asks me if I'm Jewish, I say yes".
Campbell's parents divorced when she was two years old. She and brother Christian resided largely with their father (who received custody of the two), with regular periods at their mother's home, until Neve was nine years old. At that time she moved into residence at the National Ballet School of Canada, training there and appearing in performances of The Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty. Campbell moved from dancing into acting at the age of 15, when she performed in The Phantom of the Opera at the Pantages Theatre in Toronto.

Campbell first starring role was Daisy in the Canadian youth TV series Catwalk, which she held from 1992 to 1994. She rose to fame outside Canada after being cast as Julia Salinger in the drama series Party of Five, in which she performed from 1994 to 2001.
Campbell's first widely released film was 1996's The Craft. She then had a starring role in the Scream horror film trilogy. Roger Ebert, in his review of Scream 3, wrote of Campbell, "The camera loves her. She could become a really big star and then giggle at clips from this film at her AFI tribute."
Campbell also appeared in Wild Things and Three to Tango. In 1998, she was on People's "50 Most Beautiful People" list.
Following the last of the Scream series, Campbell appeared in several films that received a limited theatrical release but were well reviewed by critics, including the 2000 film Panic, in which she appeared alongside William H. Macy and Donald Sutherland, and the 2003 film The Company, about Chicago's Joffrey Ballet. Campbell co-wrote, produced, and starred in that film.
Next came the independent film When Will I Be Loved, in which she appeared nude. Released in 2004, the film was praised by critic Roger Ebert but received only a brief and limited theatrical release. In Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide (2009 edition), the film critic describes it as an "Unlikable film ... crammed with coldhearted characters who are obsessed with big bucks, sleazy sex, and endless hustling."
In March 2006, Campbell made her West End theatre debut, in a version of Arthur Miller's Resurrection Blues at the Old Vic theatre. Matthew Modine and Maximilian Schell also appeared in the play, which received mixed reviews. Resurrection Blues was directed by Robert Altman, with whom Campbell had previously worked in The Company. Later in 2006, Campbell performed again in the West End in Love Song, alongside Cillian Murphy, Michael McKean, and Kristen Johnston, to mixed reviews.
On June 24, 2009, Campbell returned to television in a starring role on NBC's The Philanthropist. On July 7, 2007, she presented at the UK leg of Live Earth at Wembley Stadium, London.
In September 2009, it was confirmed that Campbell signed on to once again portray Sidney Prescott in Scream 4, which is due out in theaters after 2010.

Campbell married fellow Canadian and actor Jeff Colt on April 3, 1995. The couple, who met when he was a bartender at Toronto's Pantages Theatre, divorced on May 8, 1998. In 2005, Campbell began dating John Light, an English actor whom she met while filming the movie Investigating Sex. The couple became engaged in December 2005 and have lived together in London for the last 5 years. They married in Malibu in May 2007.
Campbell has appeared in campaign literature and videos for the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada and the Tourette Syndrome Association, a similar organization in the United States.

 

Neve Campbell - Personal Quotes

 


(If she could change one feature about her, what would it be?): "I have the ugliest feet in the world. But even if I didn't dance, they would still be ugly. My toes are too big!"

("What was the most diificult time of her life?"): Probably when I was at the National Ballet School of Canada, from the ages of nine to fourteen. It's the best dance school in the world, but an extremely competitive one, and there was a lot of pressure for a child. It had an extremely back-stabbing mentality, and there was a lot of favoritism. I wanted to be there because I wanted to be a dancer. I love to dance, and that was my dream. When you're in that school, it means you've beaten out two thousand people to get there, so you're not exactly gonna quit. But I did, at fourteen, because I basically had a nervous breakdown--I wouldn't have been able to function had I stayed there. It was a huge decision. But I'd just about given up on my dream of being a dancer and realized that I'd completely lost myself and had no friends and was very unhappy in my life and couldn't have continued if I'd stayed there.

(Asked "Was she injured during the filming of The Company (2003)): "I broke my rib three days before going to Chicago. I did the training for four and a half months getting ready to go and three days before I went, when I was really nervous to join the company and see where I stood, I broke my rib. We were learning "Funny Valentine" and because we were learning from the tape, we were doing one of the lifts wrong. He lifted me from under my ribs. So then I had to go and do it with a broken rib".

(On her dance injuries): "I have got arthritis in my neck and my hips. I have had surgery on my feet. I have had snapping hip syndrome, tendonitis, shin splints, bursitis... I have had almost every injury imaginable."

"TS has really taught me a lesson about judging people who are different. Now when I see somebody do or say something I don't understand, I try to look beyound appearances and ask myself what makes that person tick - no pun intended. Think about it: When you keep an open mind about things that seem unusual or strange, all sorts of new understanding come to you. The world gets bigger, and so do you." ["Celebrity Diary", Teen People Magazine, April 2000]

"When I look back on it now, I am so glad that the one thing that I had in my life was my belief that everything in life is a learning experience, whether it be positive or negative. If you can see it as a learning experience, you can turn any negative into a positive."

"I'm always sad I left dance. I'm just in my element when I'm in the dance world. I'm so much more content in my heart when I'm sitting on a dance floor in a studio. It sounds so cheesy but it's just my home, it's where I grew up, I've been doing it since I was 6. It makes so much more sense to me than anything else I do."

(On pointe work in ballet): "You'd better love it, or there's absolutely no point. Unless, of course, you're a complete masochist."

"Classical ballet is physically challenging. You don't have any control over your career. You have to take instruction. You can't talk back. You can't have an opinion. You have to have great discipline and endurance. You have to tolerate pain. If you don't make it within a five-year period after training, you won't get into a company. You can't do it after you turn 35, because your body hurts so much. If you do ballet, you have to do it all day, every day."
