Tall, dark, and uncommonly handsome, with heavy-lidded blue eyes and a suave confidence balanced by his grounded modesty, Brazilian import Bruno Campos was best known as Diego on the NBC sitcom "Jesse" (1998-2000), playing the sweet and sincere art professor next-door neighbor courting Christina Applegate's titular single mom. The son of an international banker, Campos was born in Brazil and raised all over the world, in locales as far reaching as Rio de Janeiro, Houston, Bahrain and Toronto. Upon returning to Brazil at age 15, the young man convinced his father to allow him to attend Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan. After graduation, he went on to Northwestern University, where he received his theater degree in 1995. Campos returned to South America following college, and made his big screen debut with a lead role in the Brazilian production "O Quatrilho", a story of Italian immigrants in Brazil which went on score an Academy Award nomination in the Best Foreign-Language Film category. The following year, the actor moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of an acting career. Within eight months, just short of when he would be forced to return to Brazil as per US immigration laws, Campos landed a development deal with Warner Bros. Television. This perfectly timed deal, which came about because of the actor's relentless drive as well as his considerable presence and talent, would jump-start his career while also allowing him to remain in the United States.

Memorable guest appearances on sitcoms followed, with Campos' dark good looks and fluency with several foreign accents (although his own English is flawless, having spoken it since the age of five) leading to roles including a part as macho Luis' gay brother on "Suddenly Susan" (NBC, 1997) and Zoe's lecherous Italian paramour on "Cybill" (CBS, 1998). He also had a guest starring role on the short-lived sitcom "Chicago Sons" (NBC, 1997) and was featured in the CBS miniseries "Mario Puzo's The Last Don" (also 1997) before taking on his first regular role on "Jesse". As Chilean-born Diego, Campos not only added an wordly and artistic flair to the sitcom's blue collar Buffalo, New York setting, he also emerged as a remarkably romantic and honest character, winning the admiration of many an audience member as he won the heart of the spunky no-nonsense title character. Campos' popularity didn't go unnoticed, and when the show underwent restructuring for its second season (1999-2000), Diego was one of the few regulars to make the cut, though the show ultimatley folded

Campos continued to find steady work on series television, appearing in the brief Showtime drama "Leap Years" (2001-2002) as an up-and-coming young lawyer, part of five friends living in New York watch their friendships and relationships evolve through three different eras: 1993, 2001 and 2008. There were also recurring roles on the Showtime series "Resurrection Blvd." in 2001 and as Dr. Eddie Dorset on the long-running medical drama "ER" in 2003, as well as a co-starring stint opposite Steven Weber on the short-lived ABC legal drama "The D.A." in 2004. After a guest spot as the facial/cranial plastic surgery specialist Quentin Costa on the juicy FX melodrama "Nip/Tuck" in 2004, Campos was added to the cast as a regular during the third season in 2005.

Bonus Trivia


"You'll do anything when you have that kind of gun to your head. I said, 'In two weeks I have to go back to my country. To stay I need a deal with a studio and I'd rather cut off my arm than leave your office without one.'" - Campos on the direct approach that landed him a development deal with Warner Bros., quoted in Entertainment Weekly, Nov. 27, 1998


"He has this wonderful charm and confidence. He's very suave without being overbearing. That's what women are getting excited about." - Christina Applegate on her co-star's appeal, quoted in People magazine, March 1, 1999
