Nicholas Campbell: Actor

Episode 15- Nov. 18, 2013


nicholas campbell interview, Da Vinci's inquest, Bill and sons towing,

This episode is slightly cut. Due to a mis-communication, my meeting with Nicholas Campbell got off to a rough start. As I explain in the podcast, I didn’t start recording our conversation at the beginning of our chat.

Consequently I didn’t record our chat about working at the Royal Acedmey of Dramatic Arts with Laurence Olivier and Campbell’s work as a film director.

Actor and director Nicholas Campbell discusses how he switched from studying law to theatre, his love of horse racing, his hopes to do more stage work and the greatly exaggerated rumors about his drug use.

Campbell’s interest in theatre began at Queens, soon after that he moved to England and studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. His early feature films include the Hollywood blockbusters “The Omen” (1976) starring Gregory Peck, “A Bridge Too Far” (1977) starring Sean Connery and “The Spy Who Loved Me” (1977) starring Roger Moore.

Campbell is best known for his leading role in Da Vinci’s Inquest, a series about a hands-on, crime-solving Vancouver coroner.
