When I was 19 years old I emailed Bruce Campbell. Since he no longer lived in Michigan, I asked him if he ever missed swimming in the Great Lakes. He responded with, “I love to take my family back to Michigan. In fact, I just swam in Lake Michigan a month ago.” I couldn't believe that the actor in my favorite movies (Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, Army of Darkness) had responded to something that I wrote AND he still visited the state that I was living in. I couldn't believe that one of my favorite acto
rs took two minutes out of his busy schedule to write back a kid in college. It was one of the best moments in my life. He went on to say, “If you send me your address I'll send you an autographed postcard.” I emailed him back with my address and two weeks later there it was. That's the kind of guy Bruce Campbell is, an actor who realizes that his fans are just as important to him, as he is to them. Happy 54th Birthday, Bruce Campbell. Hail to the king, baby!
