Undercover Showtunes #5: Christian Campbell

Eugene: What did you enjoy most about your 10-month stay with "All My Children", and what kind of skills did you walk away with?

Christian: I can memorize great swathes of dialogue!

Eugene: You last treated New York audiences with the world premiere of Great Expectations at TheatreWorks USA in the role of Pip.  Was the material challenging? What were some of the rewards of the project?

Christian: The material was challenging in that it was very much a language piece as well as the fact I had to play a young boy all the way up to a man in his 30s.  Also, that we played the entire story in an hour and a half was no small feat.  But I never felt lost or overwhelmed as the director, cast and crew were phenomenal to work with and the people over at Theatreworks USA were a dream.

Eugene: You're in Boise right now re-shooting a film? Tell us a little more about what you're up to!

Christian: I'm currently shooting an independent feature called Ibid, shot entirely on location in Idaho.  Then it's up to Vancouver to shoot a thriller called Captive next month.  Theatrically there is a show on the West End in London that I'm mulling over.

Eugene: What can fans hope to see you in next?

Christian: I'll tell you that after I've finished mulling!

Eugene: Awesome! Best of luck to you and have a great time at the concert!
