“Neve Campbell’s disciplined approach to the arts began at age nine with her training at the National Ballet School of Canada. Her versatility as a performer has since captured audiences across multiple platforms – the small screen, the big screen and on stage,” says ACTRA National President Ferne Downey. “From her start as the youngest cast member in the Toronto production of The Phantom of the Opera, to her transition to television in Canada’s Catwalk series, to her breakout in the U.S. as a lead in Party of Five and success on the big screen, Neve continually cultivates a clear and honest respect for our craft.”

After her stage debut in Andrew Lloyd Webber’sPhantom of the Opera in 1988, Neve went on to become a household name for her work in the critically-acclaimed Golden Globe-winning television series Party of Five and the Scream movies — one of the highest-grossing horror filmfranchisesof all time. Other credits include The Craft; The Canterville Ghost; Three to Tango;Drowning Mona; Panic; and Wild Things for which she received a MTV Movie Award nomination. Neve also co-wrote, produced and starred in the 2003 film, The Company. Her recent work includes the film Walter, also staring Virginia Madsen and William H.
