Martin Campbell (born 24 October 1943) is a New Zealand film and television director based in the United Kingdom. He is best known for directing the highly regarded British miniseries Edge of Darkness (1985), for which he won a BAFTA, and the James Bond films GoldenEye (1995) and Casino Royale (2006).

Life and career

Born in Hastings, New Zealand, Campbell moved to London, where he began his career as a director of softcore sex comedies and action television series in the 1970s. He went on to direct two James Bond films, 1995's GoldenEye, starring Pierce Brosnan, and 2006's Casino Royale, starring Daniel Craig, and was the oldest director in the series' history, at the age of 62 (beating the previous record set by Lewis Gilbert, who directed Moonraker at the age of 59). He also directed two Zorro films, The Mask of Zorro (1998) and The Legend of Zorro (2005), both starring Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Campbell also directed the 2011 film adaptation of the DC Comics superhero Green Lantern. Campbell also directed The Foreigner (2017), starring Jackie Chan. [2]

On television Campbell directed the film Cast a Deadly Spell[3] and had overseen some of the more action-oriented episodes from the TV series The Professionals (1977–1983); however, his best-known work is the 1985 BBC Television drama serial Edge of Darkness, for which he won the British Academy Television Award for Best Director in 1986. Campbell has also directed a movie remake of Edge of Darkness, starring Mel Gibson and Ray Winstone, and released in 2010. Campbell directed the first episode of the US TV series Last Resort.
