There’s no actor on television that has had as much impact on a drama as Neve Campbell aka ‘LeAnn Harvey’ in House of Cards. Campbell’s character is a Texas political consultant who is incredibly intelligent and successful. She is greatly praised and acclaimed for her ability to win campaigns against all odds. Harvey becomes First Lady Claire Underwood’s (played by Robin Wright) political consultant after Claire makes her an offer she can’t refuse. She later becomes Frank and Claire’s campaign manager when they decide to run for office together. Campbell’s character is one of the central components in the story’s plotline in the new season.
Campbell first rose to fame in the 90’s, starring as ‘Sidney Prescott’ in the Scream series as well as the drama series Party of Five which won the Golden Globe Award for Best Drama in 1996.
Scenes with her and Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly) are among the best and hottest scenes in House of Cards. Their rivalry reflects the reality of Washington’s hyper-competitive political class and reminds us of unnamed presidential campaigns.
