Christian Bethune Campbell (born May 12, 1972) is a Canadian stage and screen actor married to actress America Olivo.


He is most famous for playing the character Gabriel in the movie Trick. He has also acted in numerous other television series and films. From 2000-2002, he voiced Max Steel in the hit kids' show, Max Steel (he would also return to voice the character for 4 direct-to-DVD movies from 2004-2008, as well as the first season of "Max Steel: Turbo Missions"). In 2001, Campbell teamed up with Trick co-star John Paul Pitoc in the feature-film Thank You, Good Night co-starring with Mark Hamill and Sally Kirkland. Along with Shannon Elizabeth, he starred in the 2008 made-for-TV movie You Belong To Me. Campbell played the recast Bobby Warner on All My Children from 2004 to 2005, replacing Brian Gaskill for the role after a seven-year absence for the character. Before its abrupt cancellation, he had a starring role in the NBC drama The Book of Daniel. He has also starred in Shawn Ku's Pretty Dead Girl and the 1995 film Picture Perfect. In May 2010, he had a guest-starring role as victim Ben Rooney in CSI: Miami season 8, episode 21, "Meltdown".

On stage, his work includes the Jonathan Larson musical Tick, Tick... BOOM!, which he has played on a national tour of the United States and in London at the Menier Chocolate Factory (July – September 2005). He has also portrayed the lead character of Jimmy Harper in all stage productions of Reefer Madness: The Musical as well as the Showtime network adaptation, Reefer Madness: The Movie Musical.[1]

Campbell can be seen as a recurring role in the second season of "True Detective" and is simultaneously seen playing the villain "Pierce" in the "Disney Channel Original Movie" "Bad Hair Day".

Campbell and wife America Olivo have recently established a production company "EsoteriCam Productions". Some projects slated for 2015 are docu-reality concert series "Live From Gramercy Park", a mini-series based on Olympic Gold winning uncle Walter D'Hondt by Danica d'Hondt, a docu-reality series around "Broadway Dreams Foundation", and the revival of the stage musical comedy "Reefer Madness".
