Hail to the King - Bruce Campbell on Fandom

Michael Stewart writes:

Life’s not easy for B movie stars.

Often the hardest working actors in Hollywood, these folks drift from film to television, animation to video games, going where the work is. They’re not the ones punching the clock on the latest summer blockbuster. These are the actors who count themselves lucky to work in what many consider a savage industry, the ones who truly appreciate what it means to have fans.

Occasionally, they’ll even land a role that earns them a cult following.

In his 35-year acting career, Bruce Campbell has had more than a few of those. Tall, dark, and handsome, Campbell starred in the canceled-before-its-time serialized Western, The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. He had roles on television’s Hercules, Xena, and most recently, Burn Notice. And his square jaw and cleft chin served him well as Ash Williams, the retail clerk thrust into a battle with the forces of evil, in Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead series.

An actor, writer, and director, Campbell loves to work. He also loves the fans that make it possible. We spoke recently about fan culture and what he’s been up to.
