Personal Quote:

I like pre-production and post the best. I don't like shooting at all. I find it grueling and tough, but I love post and the whole process of seeing the film finally come together.

Directed two James Bond actors in their respective debuts: Pierce Brosnan in GoldenEye (1995) and Daniel Craig in Casino Royale (2006). Campbell had cameo appearances in both films.


Frequently sets important portions of the film or has characters fighting one another atop very high places.
