1. The youngest of three boys, Bruce Campbell wanted to be an actor as young as eight-years-old after witnessing his dad's enjoyment while performing in local community theatre . Eventually, he followed his father's footsteps into the acting profession by performing in local community theatre. He began his professional acting career by playing the King in a production of the "King and I" at 14. He appeared in several more Community theatre productions including "South Pacific" and "Sweet Bird of Youth".
During the beginning of his acting career he began making Super-8 movies with a friend. After consoling each other after awful pantomime routines in class, Bruce became fast friends with Sam Raimi in 1975. They went on to make quite a few Super-8 movies together for fun.
In 1976, Bruce became a volunteer apprentice at Traverse City's Cherry County Playhouse in northern Michigan working long hours behind the scenes on the playhouse's productions from erecting sets, assistant stage manager to errand boy.
After only approximately six months at Western Michigan University, Bruce dropped out to pursue a career in film-making. He went to work as a production assistant for a commercial-making firm in Detroit.
In 1979, together with buddy Sam Raimi and new pal Rob Tapert, Bruce helped create a Super-8 short film called "Within The Woods". This short film, which would later be made into the full-length film "The Evil Dead", was used to solicit funds from investors so they could make "The Evil Dead". They managed to raise $350,000, with Bruce starring in and Co-Executive producing the film as well.
"The Evil Dead" became a cult favourite and was the best-selling video in England in 1983. It was sent to the Cannes Film Festival, where it was noticed and complimented by Stephen King. New Line Cinema released the film in the U.S. shortly thereafter.
