‘PEPPA PIG LIVE’ ACTRESS AND PERFORMER LIB CAMPBELL
Those eyes, those lips, that face, that…very funny woman! Oh, that’s Lib Campbell, the film actress, the TV host, the Internet series star, the bright face on TV commercials and of course, the very proper stage actress. And in addition to all of those interesting descriptions there’s one more, Lib is one of the funniest women in the known world.
Besides being classically trained as an actress, Lib also has a huge background in comedy. When you ask her who she would like to work with, none of the “method” actors’ names pop up. It’s the great funny people who make us all laugh whose names are on the tip of this sparkling Aussie’s tongue. Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Stephen Merchant, Stephen Fry and Ricky Gervais, are only a few of the names that are shot out of her mouth like machine gun bullets. She says she wants to work with anyone who has comedy chops so she can play with them and learn from them.
And apparently, she has learned a great deal already. Three feature-length films in which Lib performed are going to be released in 2016. (How exciting is that?)! She worked with the Australian director Michael Chrisoulakis and the famous American actor Peter Bogdanovich on Day for Night, and she had a fantastic time on the set of The Last Superhero, directed by Jason Trost. She also got to play a character in the U.S. version of the Japanese animated classic Ultraman.
Even though it seems that every year is Lib’s year, 2015 and 2016 are her year too. They are going to be very big years for her! She recently began a U.S. national tour for Peppa Pig Live, which is getting rave reviews and standing ovations from all the kids and their parents in the audience. Out of 2,000 people who auditioned, only six people were chosen to be in the tour and Lib was one of those very talented six thespians.
Lib has actually been performing since she was 7; it’s all she ever really wanted to do. She may not be able to do, or let me say instead that she may not be rehearsed in the so-called “normal things that other people do on a daily basis, like balance a check-book or even drive a car, but she can act. Give her a character to play and some lines to say and she will be as happy as a kid at a circus.
