Transcript:The Final Destination - Bobby Campo InterviewRebecca Murray from About.com Hollywood Movies at the world premiere of Warner Bros Pictures' The Final Destination.
Bobby Campo – 'Nick' in The Final DestinationTell me what the appeal is of being in a Final Destination movie.
Bobby Campo: "Well for me right now it's in 3-D. It's just non-stop. I get to work with David Ellis who's been a stuntman for like 34 years or something before he became a director. I get to do a franchise that's successful. I've been around since the beginning of it. I remember sneaking into the theater when I was a kid."
Do you really?
Bobby Campo: "Yeah, yeah, yeah. It was 10 years ago. So that was a huge treat and then on top of it, 3-D's never been done before. So I get to be a part of a roller coaster. It's like this is my first real thing so it's like, 'Wow!'"
So your character is the one who actually sees what happens. Do people believe you in this one because they never believe anyone in the Final Destination movies?
Bobby Campo: "No. I don't know what it is. 'Why won't you believe me?' I don't know."
So what was it actually like on the set? Do you go through hell in this physically?
Bobby Campo: "David, he pushes you to the limit but at the same time he keeps it safe and fun. So he's got this way of just making it light at the same time you're running through an exploding hole. It's a mixture of everything. It's tough to describe in just a couple of words."
That makes sense. Without giving anything away, do you have a favorite death scene?
Bobby Campo: "Do I have a favorite? The escalator scene. You're not going to be able to get on an escalator without thinking about it. No way."
So do you freak out and take elevators now?
Bobby Campo: "I honestly, honestly got on an escalator the day after a screening and I was like, 'Okay, I've got to calm down. This is not real.' I had to psyche myself out of it."
