Notes

Campbell's first name, pronounced "Nev", comes from her mother's maiden name.

"I've always been open and respectful of everybody, but now I'm at a place where that's harder. I don't want to put up barriers, but I find myself in circumstances where some people try to be your friend because of who you are, instead of who you are inside. It's hard to believe that a job can cause that to happen in life, but it does." --Neve Campbell quoted in The New York Post, December 19, 1996.

"Lighting candles and believing that you can create a white light around you wards off evil ... I don't believe in set spells or any set religion, but I believe we all have energy we can focus." --Neve Campbell in Interview, January 1997.

"I don't want to be typecast as just one character, and if I find another really fantastic script and it's a choice between that and 'Scream 3', I'll do the other script." --Campbell to The Boston Globe, March 15, 1998.

"I broke a rib three days before I got here to start training with the Joffrey. I was so angry, but there was nothing I could do but rehearse. So now I have a souvenir - a huge calcification on my rib." ---Campbell on rehearsing for "The Company." Premiere December 2003
