Neve Campbell On London Stage
I really like Neve Campbell. She's parlayed her stardom from Party of Five into a very interesting film career. And even though she hasn't made a lot of successful movies yet, her choices are so interesting and she's so often the best thing in them that I know she's going to be around for a long time. Among her movies: the Scream trilogy (which gave her bankability), Wild Things (which she probably isn't thrilled with but is B-movie fun), and The Company (a Robert Altman film about dance that she spent a good ten years creating and making happen). She was also really good in When Will I Be Loved (a James Toback movie I hated), and gave her brother Christian support by popping into Reefer Madness: The Musical. She's got movies in the works with Jessica Lange, Nicolas Roeg (typical for her, that one) and is making her stage debut in London with Arthur Miller's Resurrection Blues directed by Altman. The Independent UK has a profile.
