Main Movie Roles
Guest TV Roles[none found]
Campbell was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He got a BA in Theatre at Dalhousie University. He started his career in acting working with theatre troupes touring the US and Canada. He later moved to Toronto to start work in film and television, and also did a lot of radio and voice acting. He resides in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Campbell was hired as a stand in for Joe Flanigan for Stargate Atlantis:Rising (Part 1) but was actually used as the stand-in for David Hewlett, and has continued to be his stand-in until the show ended. He was given an acting role in the Season 1 episode The Brotherhood by Martin Wood and has appeared in over thirty episodes since. From the beginning of Season 2 he essentially replaced the character of Peter Grodin as Elizabeth Weir's assistant after Grodin was killed in The Siege part 1.
For three seasons, Campbell's character did not have a name, and he was always credited as "the technician". However, in First Strike, Weir refers to Campbell's character as Chuck, which is of course his actual name. Speaking at the Pegasus 2 convention in the UK, Campbell stated that he thought this was a mistake on Torri Higginson's part, but the director Martin Wood decided to keep the scene anyway. Since then, the character has continued to be called Chuck on-screen, but still has no surname. On the DVD commentary tracks, he has been referred to, jokingly, as "Chucknician", an amalgam of Chuck and technician.
Campbell was interviewed by GateWorld about his role on the show Stargate Atlantis. He talks about his character and Season 4.
