Kieran Campion
Kieran Campion


Full given name: Kieran James Campion
Hometown: Etna, NH
Audition monologue: Fortunately, I haven't used a monologue in ages. I used to do Cassius from Julius Caesar.
Special skills: I've got a pretty decent slap shot.
First Broadway show ever saw: Cats - age 12
If you could go back in time and catch any Broadway show, what would it be? Brando in Streetcar

One CD you couldn't live without: Radiohead - "Kid A"
Last book you read: "The White Tiger" by Aravind Adiga
Must-see TV show: "30 Rock"
Last good movie you saw: "Tropic Thunder" on demand. I would watch Robert Downey Jr. read the newspaper.
Favorite board game: Scrabble
Performer you would drop everything to go see: Philip Seymour Hoffman
Pop culture guilty pleasure: VH1's "I love the _ " - great treadmill TV
First stage kiss: Eighth grade. Neil Simon's Fools - her breath smelled like peanut butter.
Favorite pre-/post-show meal: Pre: soup and a smoothie. Post: Anything I can shovel into my mouth in front of "Sportscenter."
How you got your Equity card: The World of Mirth Off-Broadway. I played a carnie.
Worst onstage mishap: College production of Chekhov's The Proposal. I got a nosebleed five minutes into the show. My character doesn't leave the stage. By the end of the 40-minute play, the set looked like a crime scene.
Who have you played on "Law & Order"? Which edition? "SVU": Seth Wolford III. If you've got roman numerals after your name, you know you're going down.
Worst costume ever: Stage directions: Paul is squatting on the floor wearing only white briefs... he mimics doing squats... use your imagination.
Favorite cereal: For breakfast: Oatmeal, not the instant kind. For dessert: Barbara's Peanut Butter Puffins
Worst job you ever had: Waiter at a country club - ever see "Caddyshack?"
TV or commercial gig you most enjoyed: "Law and Order: SVU." Any role that involves being pulled out of bed with two women and thrown into a wall by Ice - T is good in my book.
Leading man role you've been dying to play Jamie Tyrone in Long Day's Journey into Night
