Born in Bath, England, Adam Campbell is an English actor who is noted for his roles in the American film parodies Date Movie and Epic Movie. He is the son of Jean and Peter Jones.
Campbell studied at the Beechen Cliff School, where he was a member of the drama club, joined the Musical Youth Theatre Company and appeared in stage productions at the local Theatre Royal. He went to the University of Exeter, where he shared a room with Pop Idol winner Will Young and earned his degree in drama. From 2001 to 2004, he trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and following his graduation, moved to the United States to pursue a career in acting.
Commando Nanny marked Campbell’s first role on TV. Unfortunately, the sitcom, which was originally scheduled to premiere in 2004, was never picked up by The WB Television Network. He then moved on to star as Grant Fockyerdoder, alongside Alyson Hannigan, in the 2006 parody of romantic comedy films, Date Movie, which was a mild success at the American box office. He also starred in You Are Here, an independent film about a group of twenty-somethings, released in 2007. But one of his biggest roles was in Epic Movie where he starred as one of the main roles, Peter Pervertski.
In 2009, Campbell was cast as Cal on Harper’s Island, a CBS series about a group of family and friends who travel for a destination wedding to an island famous for a streak of unsolved murders. In the same year, he was cast on the NBC sci-fi series Day One, about a group of apartment residents who survived an unknown global catastrophe.
