Bruce Campbell. The man is a legend. And we got to talk to him about the return of Ash Vs. Evil Dead. All new Season 3 episodes debut starting this Sunday. And we're in for one hell of a treat. To celebrate the occasion, the man with the iconic chin offered up some secrets, and let us in on a few surprises.
The Actor, the Author, The Producer, The Legend. Bruce Campbell returns for Season 3 of the STARZ Original Series Ash vs Evil Dead. And This Time a Supernatural War is Brewing! The new season finds Ash, having gone from murderous urban legend to humanity-saving hometown hero, discovering that he has a long lost daughter who's been entrusted in his care. When Kelly witnesses a televised massacre with Ruby's fingerprints all over it, she returns with a new friend to warn Ash and Pablo that evil isn't done with them yet.
But evil will learn to never get in between a papa bear and his cub. The ten-episode series also stars Lucy Lawless as Ruby, who devises her most diabolical plan to defeat Ash and raise hell on earth; Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar, forever loyal to Jefe (Ash), who will realize his true destiny in the battle against evil; and Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly Maxwell, whose single goal is to kill Ruby and end the Evil Dead torment once and for all.
Bruce Campbell's extensive film and television credits include Hercules: The Legendary Journeys (which he also directed,) its follow-up phenomenon, Xena: Warrior Princess, Burn Notice, The X Files, Congo, Cars 2, Escape From LA, Running Time, Serving Sara, The Majestic and Sam Raimi's Spider Man franchise. He is also the best selling author of the memoir entitled If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor, and his first novel, Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way.
But it's his iconic role as Ashley "Ash" Williams that has garnered Bruce a cult following. The role first originated in the low-budget horror film Evil Dead (which he created in 1979 with his Detroit friends Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert.) Campbell starred and co-executive produced the film, which became a world-wide phenomenon. Campbell returns to his classic role of 'Ash' in the third season of the STARZ series Ash vs Evil Dead.
Chatting with Bruce, we learn that Season 3 could be the last for Ash Vs. Evil Dead. We also get some insight into Ash's long-lost daughter, and some of the crazy fights that will be on display. This show really put both Mr. Campbell and his stuntman through some raw, bloody paces that are a delight for any and all horror fans. We also manage to completely stump Bruce by asking him how legendary musician Suzi Quatro helped define the legend that is Ash. He didn't have an answer, and that might not even show up in the video. Get your chainsaw, grab your robotic hand, and get ready to experience one of the greatest horror icons of any generation unfiltered and fresh from shooting.
