Today, Entertainment Weekly released some never before seen images of House of Cards Season 5 and it hit me like a ton of bricks that Neve Campbell is in the show. She plays Claire Underwood’s campaign adviser by the name of Leann Harvey. Her character is like one you’d expect on House of Cards: tough and definitely corrupt if she needs to be. Turns out that Harvey has become quite the nemesis for Frank. And this got me thinking: “Can Neve Campbell make it back to the top of Hollywood?”
You cannot forget that Campbell essentially ruled the 90s. It all began on Party of Five and as soon as she starred in the movie Scream it was on. Campbell was in everything from movies to being on the cover of 17 magazine to being the face of make up products She was definitely an “It” girl back then. And of course I have to mention the sultry seen with her and Denise Richards in Wild Things because how could I not? While the year 2011 reprised her role as Sidney Prescott in Scream 4, she’s been a very on and off actress for the past 10-15 years and she’s not really a household name anymore.
But here’s the thing. She’s only 43 and still looks fantastic.
It’ll be very interesting to see of Campbell’s role in House of Cards can parlay her into some bigger roles. I for one would love to see her in the spotlight again. I’m almost thinking of an Anna Chlumsky kind of scenario only Campbell was way bigger than Chlumsky back in the respective days. Anyway, I’m just psyched she’s back on television in a regular role.
