Meet the Campbells: Scotty

scotty2

Scott R. Campbell

Short Bio:

scottyScotty is the youngest of all the Campbell siblings, being 5 minutes younger than Seth and 17 minutes younger than Sly – his triplet brothers.

Even as a child Scotty displayed a love for performing, whether it was acting in school plays or singing in the school choir or in front of friends and family.  He enjoyed being on stage rather than playing sports, though that did not stop him from excelling in baseball and soccer during middle school.

Scotty learned to play piano when he was only 4 years old and later learned guitar when he was 9.  Around that time he also began to take vocal lessons and has since taught himself to play a few other instruments.  He now produces some of his own music, which he shared on his personal website, and has DJ’d a few school events and his brother Spyro’s wedding.

Since starting high school, Scotty has put more focus into producing music and acting.  He is a part of the school’s Improv Acting club and recently starred in the school’s Christmas show as the male lead.

SIBLING INTERVIEW:

What is it like to be the youngest child of such a large family?

Not bad. It’s crazy for sure, and I did get teased a lot, but it’s also awesome having 8 older siblings having my back when I need them.

What made you choose to get so involved in acting?

I just loved it when my elementary school classes would do plays.  It was fun seeing people smile in the audience and I just wanted to keep on doing that.

How did you feel when Spyro and Raye asked you to deejay their wedding?

I was so happy and honored…. it’s beyond explanation.

You are also into writing… what kind of stuff do you write?

I’ve done a bit of screenwriting… I’m actually working on one now for a future school production.  I’ve written a few fictional stories too.

Was there a lot of pressure when you got your first lead role in a high school production?

Oh yeah, but I was able to pull it off thanks to my cast-mates.

I know it’s early, but are you looking into any schools for college?

I’ve browsed, but I don’t have my heart set on any just yet.

If you could only be a musician, writer or actor… which would you choose?

I hate this question… but I’d choose acting.

And that wraps up Project: Meet the Campbells!  I had a lot of fun doing this project and I hope you all enjoyed reading it.  It’s going to be weird not having these posts going up during the week.  Hopefully I’ll have a new project soon enough!

Oh, and did any of you notice that the 9 of us have the initials SRC or SAC?

Congrats if you did.

Anyway, until next time… stay cute.

Meet the Campbells: Seth

seth2

Seth R. Campbell

Short Bio:

sethSeth is the 8th Campbell child and the middle triplet brother to Sly and Scotty.

Seth is known as the quietest of the siblings and other than hanging out with his same-aged brothers, he often likes to keep to himself.  Though he does enjoy the company of a few close friends.  His hobbies coincide with his quiet nature, as he is often found reading, taking pictures out around campus or sometimes playing his Nintendo DSi.

The avid reader he is, at the start of his sophomore year at the boarding school he attends he approached his English teacher with the idea of starting a book club.  It was not long before the club was approved and a decent number of students signed up, with Seth as the club’s president.

While about half of the Campbell siblings have some sight impairment and require glasses or contacts, Seth is the only sibling who is hearing impaired and cannot hear what goes on around him unless he wears hearing aids.  When Seth began to lose his hearing, he immediately began to learn American Sign Language and his siblings jumped into classes alongside him.

Seth enjoys playing all types of sports and holds a place on his school’s tennis team and had previously played for his middle school soccer team.  He also currently writes for his own blog, Tales of a Triplet, here on WordPress.com if you’d like to check it out.

SIBLING INTERVIEW:

Which of your older siblings tended to pick on you the most?

Spyro, definitely. But of course, Sam and Ian have done their share of picking on me (as well as Sly and Scotty).

What is your favorite meal and drink of choice?

I really love buffalo chicken pizza for a meal, and I love mango or peach iced tea to drink.

What drove the change from soccer to tennis?

I’ve always loved tennis.  I used to play with my dad and cousins at the country club or at the high school when I was younger, so when I made the transition to high school I decided to transition sports as well.

How have you dealt with being hearing impaired for the past few years?

I’ve tried to find the positives in it… for instance when I’m trying to read in a noisy area I just switch them off and silence is mine.

Did it make it easier that your siblings began to learn ASL with you?

Very much, it was the best thing they’ve ever done for me and I’ll never forget it.

Has ASL become a secret code that you like to use with your siblings?

At times it does.

Since you have too many favorite books to choose just one, what are your favorite movies and TV shows?

Ha, that’s the truth!  My favorite movies are Liar Liar and Recess: School’s Out.  My favorite shows are Hey Arnold and Avatar the Last Air Bender.

Ladies and gentlemen, there’s only one Campbell siblings left.  Tune in Friday to meet him!

Meet the Campbells: Sly [guest post by Seth]

Sylvester A. Campbell

Short Bio:

10644074_288090734728865_781012919_nMeet the 7th child of the Campbell family, Sylvester.

Otherwise known as Sly, he is the oldest of the only set of triplets in the family and he is also the only vegan.  Though his name suggest a devious quality, he is the exact opposite.  Growing up, Sly looked up to all his older siblings with an admiration that none of them could understand even to this day.  He spent different times in his life shadowing each of them, imitating what they did in order to learn all he could from them.

Sly began to show an interest in photography at the age of ten when one of his sister’s gave him her old camera, and he now works a few odd-jobs along with Sammy and Ian with SSI Photography.  It was around the age of thirteen when he became interested in computer repair and programming after watching Sammy fix his friend’s broken computer.  Since then he was been constantly educating himself in the field of computer programming and knows that this, along with web design, is what he wants to pursue as a career.

Despite his computer geek qualities, Sly is very much into sports and played on a community soccer team when he was younger.  He also spent a few years racing BMX in the state of Connecticut, but once he was enrolled in boarding school with his brothers, he left the sport behind.  After a year of boarding school, Sly decided he wanted to leave in favor of being home-schooled through an online academy while living with his brothers, Sammy and Ian, and their friends.

SIBLING INTERVIEW:

Is it weird to be separated from your triplet brothers?

Yeah, I mean, after sharing a room with them for fourteen years it was almost nerve-wracking.  It’s been almost a year now since I moved in with Sammy and Ian, so we’re getting a little more used to the arrangement, but it stinks not being in the same state as them.

What was the main reason you decided you wanted to be home-schooled?

I wanted to be able to have more time for myself to learn more about computers and web design.  I had also just become a vegan at the time, so I needed even more free time to learn to make vegan meals.

Do people ever tell you that you should just focus on being a kid?

All the time, but the thing is I’m having fun with what I’m doing, so I don’t see why people get worried about me.

Other than feeling healthier, what is another benefit of being vegan?

I’ve learned to cook and prepare my own meals.  My future wife is going to love me, ha!

Is it hard to be in a long-distance relationship with your girlfriend?

Yeah.  I definitely hate not being able to see her every day like I did when we were at school together, but we’re making it work.

What prompted you to start a blog?

I just kind of wanted a space on the internet to share my life other than updating my Facebook page.  Blogging definitely gives me a more creative way to share what’s going on in my life than, “Doing homework. Bored. Text me.”  Lame.

How has the experience of conducting “Project: Meet the Campbells” been?

This has been so much fun.  It was weird interviewing my siblings, but they enjoyed it as much as I did.  I’m even getting to hand this in for one of my class projects that we had to do about our families, so there’s a bonus to doing this other than it just being a fun project.

♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦

I just want to give a thanks to Sly for letting me conduct this interview for a guest post; it was definitely fun interviewing him for his own blog.  So, everyone tune in next week when Sly takes control of the wheel again and interviews the next in line – me!
