EDEN Feature – Andrea Del Campo

Next up as our featured actor, is Andrea del Campo who plays Ev. Andrea has been involved in the show since the 2009 workshop. Ev is a teenage rebel with a cause. Andrea now lives in Toronto but comes back to Winnipeg often to work! Here is what she had to say:

What is one thing every actor needs to know? No room for egos! Unless you have won an Oscar or donated millions to charity.

What does every great story have to have? Pain.

What is your favourite word? Dessert.

If I could grant you a single wish, what would it be? To have a private, on-call masseuse.

Complete the sentences:

If I wasn’t typing this email interview right now, I would be… sleeping.

The most surprising thing that happened to me was… getting curly hair all of a sudden when I hit puberty.

A common misconception of me is… my age.

You know me as a actor but in truer life I’d have been… a rockstar or a housewife on a farm.
