Then, Rohan Campbell multiplies the more or less furtive appearances in various known series, such as Once Upon a Time, Supernatural, Unspeakable, Les 100, iZombie, Sacred Lies and Snowpiercer, while continuing to favor family feature films such as A Fallen Christmas. sky.
His career took an important turn in 2020 when he was chosen to play the main character in the detective series The Hardy Boys, adapted from the novels by Franklin W. Dixon. This is Franck Hardy, who is interested with his little brother in a sinister case in the hometown of his parents.
On the strength of this success, the actor obtains more substantial roles. Witness his performance as Corey Cunningham in Halloween Ends, the latest installment in the horror franchise revisited by David Gordon Green. There he camps a young man haunted by the accidental death of a child he was watching.
Accused of having murdered him and then acquitted, the character is now harassed by the inhabitants of Haddonfield. Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) introduces him to his granddaughter Allyson, in whom he sees an alter ego since she lost her mother due to the murderous madness of Michael Meyers.
“Laurie has been looking to work on herself and move on but Corey is taken back in time. She understands she’s dealing with someone who has a terrible past and she’s touched. It’s for that makes her bond with him”says Jamie Lee Curtis.

The interpreter of Laurie Strode remembers: “I didn’t land the lead role, and I only got a supporting role, but I left college for a month to try to break into the business. But once that month was up, I signed a contract with Universal Studios and left college.”
