Robert Joseph "Bobby" Camposecco[1] (born March 9, 1983) is an American actor. He is best remembered for playing the lead role of Nick O'Bannon in the 2009 horror film The Final Destination.

Life and career[edit]

Campo was born in Wheeling, West Virginia, and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida.[1] His father, Robert Camposecco, works as a painting contractor while his mother, Donna (née Wells), is a make-up artist who has worked for various celebrities. His paternal grandfather, Bob Campo, was a former radio personality in Wheeling[1] and he has a younger sister named Julia Marie who is married to Stephen Christian of the band Anberlin. Campo is an alumnus of Seminole High School and was a student at the Performers Studio Workshop in Tampa, Florida.[1]

Some of his favorite actors, whom he also aspires to work with, include Johnny Depp and Robert Downey, Jr. He regards both actors to be fantastic and admires them for their uniqueness and interesting works. He also looks up to the late Paul Newman. Campo is also interested in making his own movies and finds inspiration in director David Fincher.[2] In October 2009, he appeared in the cover of Throne Magazine and was also featured in the March 2010 issue of L'Uomo Vogue.[3][4]

Campo was also featured in several short films including Queen in 2011 wherein he portrayed a handsome, young cabaret doorman who expresses sympathy to a transgendered showman and in A Conversation About Cheating with My Time Travelling Future Self in 2012, portraying a man who travels back in time to tell his past self that his life will get better if he cheats on his girlfriend. For his performance in the latter, Amazing Stories's Chris Garcia found his acting "pitch perfect" and added that Campo "does an excellent job playing both sides of the same coin."[5]

In early 2012, Campo was cast for a recurring role in the third season of the supernatural drama TV series Being Human.[6] He plays the character of Max, a young-looking mortician who runs his own business and works extra hard to gain credibility.[7]

He indulges himself in rock climbing, cycling, and soccer and loves listening to music to conduce his creativity, especially when at work.[2]
