Meet Campbell Zeigler, who plays the roles of Pickpocket Cousin, Boy Scrooge, and Ghost of Christmas Future in A Christmas Carol.

How many times have you been in A Christmas Carol?
This is my first year and I love it already. I'm really, really excited to be a part of it.

What are your favorite holiday traditions?
I like putting up the Christmas tree because it marks Christmastime to me. I have a few favorite ornaments like the German Pickle and this cool Spiderman ornament. I like waking up before anyone else and seeing my presents. And I LOVE hot chocolate.

What's your favorite thing about the Bay Area during the holidays?
I like going to see the Christmas tree here in Walnut Creek and the one in Union Square. And I really like seeing A Christmas Carol at ACT during the holidays! And now I'm in it!

What is your favorite moment in A Christmas Carol?
I have a lot of favorite moments in A Christmas Carol. My favorites are: when Jacob Marley comes out of the bed and scares Scrooge, when the Ghost of Christmas Future comes out and there are those really cool sound effects and I really like when Mrs. Dilber thinks Scrooge is going insane once he's all happy at the end. She always thinks he's a little crazy, but once he becomes happy she thinks he's hit a point of complete insanity. It's hilarious. As Boy Scrooge, my favorite part is the secret handshake with my best friend Dick. 

Who is your favorite character in A Christmas Carol?
My favorite character is Jacob Marley because he is really creepy and he scares Scrooge. His costume is awesome, especially with the chains that are attached to him. I like it when he says, "Ebenezer Scrooge" in that rough, ghostly voice.

What is your favorite holidary food/treat?
I like candy canes, hot chocolate with whipped cream, English Toffee and any Christmas cookie you want to give me. But my all-time favorite is hot chocolate. I love hot chocolate. Did I mention hot chocolate?

What is your favorite Christmas movie?
My top three favorite Christmas movies are Elf, A Christmas Story and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
