  • Nell Campbell (aka Little Nell) was born May 24, 1953 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. She was the daughter of Ross, humorist and editor of the Daily Telegraph, and Ruth Campbell. She made her "debut" tap dancing for an exhibition for Martin Sharp in 1970. When she turned 18 her father moved her brother, her, and her younger sister to London. There she took on odd jobs (she used to sell shoes with Fred Mercury, lead singer of Queen). Jim Sharman spotted her one day and hired her to play a part in his new stage production, 'The Rocky Horror Show'. The play was a success and it was made into a movie. It was Nell's break. The movie flopped in its original release so Nell went back to London and did some more theater. The film soon gathered a cult following, however, and she got a record deal with A&M and released a few singles (she had a hit song called "Do the Swim"). She also did a television series. In 1980 she moved to New York and made the sequel to the cult success Rocky Horror called Shock Treatment (1981). She also had a bit part in Pink Floyd The Wall (1982) and appeared in several small pictures subsequently. In 1987, she opened the successful night club appropriately named Nell's. Apart from being a talented dancer, actress, hostess and singer, Nell is also following in her father's footsteps as a writer for Talk magazine.

QUOTES FROM Nell Campbell CHARACTERS

Columbia
My God! I can't stand any more of this! First you spurn me for Eddie, and then you throw him off like an old overcoat for Rocky! You chew people up and then you spit them out again... I loved you... do you hear me? I loved you! And what did it get me? Yeah, I'll tell you: a big nothing. You're like a sponge. You take, take, take, and drain others of their love and emotion. Yeah, well, I've had enough You're gonna choose between me and Rocky, so named after the rocks in his head!

[singing] I said hey listen to me. Stay sane inside insanity, but he locked the door and threw away the key.

You're blinded by romance, you're blinded by science. Your condition is critically grave, but don't expect mercy from such an alliance. Suspicion of tradition is so New Wave.
