Personal life

Campbell was born in Toronto, Ontario. Campbell's mother, Marnie (née Neve), is a yoga instructor and psychologist[1] from Amsterdam, Netherlands. His father, Gerry Campbell, an immigrant to Canada from the East End of Glasgow, Scotland, taught high school drama classes in Mississauga, Ontario – first at Westwood Secondary School (now Lincoln M. Alexander Secondary School), later at Lorne Park Secondary School, and now at Erindale Secondary School. Campbell's maternal grandparents ran a theatre company in the Netherlands and his paternal grandparents were also performers.

Campbell's parents divorced when he was three years old. His siblings are actress Neve Campbell, actor Alex Campbell, and Damian McDonald.[1] He and sister Neve resided largely with their father (who received custody of the two), with regular periods at their mother's home.
