Christa Campbell


Actress and Playboy model Christa Campbell got her first big break with the fitting role of the young Bettie Page in the re-enacted segments of a 1998 episode of E! True Hollywood Story. The raven-haired beauty would find steady work over the coming years with minor roles in movies and TV, but the most meaningful projects to come her way would prove to be those of the more fantastical variety. Parts in freaky fare like 2004's The Drone Virus and 2005's 2001 Maniacs would find a niche audience for the actress in the horror genre. Following in the footsteps of buxom beauties who populated grindhouse movies in the '70s and '80s, cast for their looks, as well as their ability to approach sexy and violent subject matter with a kitschy sense of fun, Campbell continued to make a name for herself with movies like 2006's The Wicker Man and Kraken: Tentacles of the Deep, 2007's Hallows Point, 2008's Day of the Dead, 2009's The Tomb, and many more. Campbell even reprised the role of the Milk Maiden for the 2010 sequel 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams, but her notoriety as a go-to girl in the realm of over the top cinema was brought to new levels with her role in 2011's The Mechanic, with Jason Statham, and Drive Angry with Nicolas Cage. Campbell hardly took a moment to enjoy her added fame however, quickly signing on to appear in Spiders 3D.
