Campbell Fell Into Acting After Ballet Injuries

Movie actress NEVE CAMPBELL fell into acting accidentally - after injury and "pressure" destroyed her childhood dream of becoming a ballerina.

The SCREAM star was enjoying a full scholarship at Canada's prestigious Ballet School when an injury and breakdown halted her career as a ballet star - precipitating an alternative career as a Hollywood film star.

Campbell, who stars in new ballet movie THE COMPANY, says, "I just could not cope with the expectations and pressures.

"I was too insecure and had problems with my parents' divorce that I could not really recognise at the time.

"Then there were the injuries, the non-stop demands and the realisation that, come what may, my career would have been over at 35.

"In some ways, it can be a joyous existence, doing what you want. In other ways, it can be hell."
