June 22, 1958
On this day in Horror History, Bruce Lorne Campbell was born in Royal Oak Michigan. Coming from humble beginnings, Campbell would find himself amidst the perfect storm in the horror industry at a young age. A close friend of director Sam Raimi with whom he met in high school, their aspirations fueled one another, and helped bring their dream to reality when they filmed Within the Woods (1978). The independent show of Campbell’s acting brilliance and Raimi’s directorial prowess would result in $350,000 raised to film The Evil Dead (1981), and in less than a decade thereafter, Campbell would be one of the most recognizable and beloved faces in cinematic history.
A kind soul who values his fans and the adoration which he’s built in the last thirty years, Campbell’s legacy continues to inspire and captivate all those who’ve had the privilege to indulge upon comedic bravado that comes naturally to the icon.
“It seemed that my lot in life was to either have big parts in small films or small parts in big films.” –Bruce Campbell
