Since 1981 he’s portrayed Ash Williams in the "Evil Dead" franchise. The movies spun into “Ash vs Evil Dead” thanks to Starz broadcasting it. With the news that the network was canceling the show, Campbell opted to retire from playing Ash… forever.
He shared on social media, "I am hereby retiring from that portrayal. It's time. I followed Ash from his formative years thru his mid-life crisis and decline. What a thrill! What a privilege!”
All good things must come to an end.
