She made guest appearances on several television shows, such as Medium, Grey's Anatomy and Mad Men.

Early life

Campbell was born in Guelph, Ontario. Her mother, Marnie (née Neve), is a yoga instructor and psychologist from Amsterdam. Her father, Gerry Campbell, immigrated to Canada from Glasgow, Scotland, and taught high school drama classes in Mississauga, Ontario (first at Westwood Secondary School, later at Lorne Park Secondary School, and now at Erindale Secondary School). Campbell's maternal grandparents ran a theater company in the Netherlands, and her paternal grandparents were also performers. On her mother's side, Campbell descends from Sephardi Jews who immigrated to the Netherlands and converted to Catholicism. She has stated: "I am a practising Catholic, but my lineage is Jewish, so if someone asks me if I'm Jewish, I say yes".

Campbell has three brothers: Christian, Alex, and Damian (known as Damian McDonald). Her parents divorced when she was two years old. At age six, Neve saw a performance of The Nutcracker and decided she wanted to take ballet, enrolling at the Erinvale School of Dance. She and her brother Christian lived mostly with their father (who received custody of the two), with regular periods at their mother's home until Neve was nine years old. At that time, she moved into residence at the National Ballet School of Canada, training there and appearing in performances of The Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty. After accumulating numerous dance-related injuries and a stress-induced nervous breakdown, she moved into acting at the age of 15, performing in The Phantom of the Opera at the Canon Theatre in Toronto while attending Guelph Collegiate Vocational Institute in Guelph.
