You Won't Believe Which Disney Prince Is Now a Lawyer
The Disney voice actor left the profession behind and enrolled in law school.
For many people, making it in Hollywood is the ultimate dream, so it's always surprising when a star walks away from acting. Nevertheless, it happens—even when an actor is associated with a particularly memorable role. You may not know Bruno Campos by name, but you'd probably recognize his voice, or at least the accent he put on to play Prince Naveen in 2009's The Princess and the Frog. If you're wondering why you haven't heard from Bruno Campos since then, that's because he left acting behind and became a lawyer.
Campos has credits outside of the Disney film, where he romanced Tiana in both human and frog form. He also played Diego, the love interest of Christina Applegate's character on Jesse, and he had a recurring role as Dr. Quentin Costa on Nip/Tuck. But to Disney fans, Campos' claim to fame is as the voice of Naveen, a charming but immature prince from the fictional nation of Maldonia who must prove his worth before he can win Tiana's heart—and become human again.
The Princess and the Frog was the last movie that Campos appeared in. He enrolled at the University of Michigan Law School and received his J.D. in 2013, according to his profile on the website for the firm Covington & Burlington LLP, where he is now an associate attorney who "represents client policyholders in a wide range of industries in complex insurance recovery matters."
The site does acknowledge Campos' acting past, though there's no mention of his former Disney prince status: "Before becoming a lawyer, Mr. Campos enjoyed a fifteen-year career in entertainment, starring in the Golden Globe winning series Nip/Tuck and Brazil's Oscar nominated O Quatrilho."
According to his LinkedIn profile, Campos worked as a judicial intern in 2011, before joining the firm Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP the following year. He has been with his current firm since 2019. Sadly, the "experience" section of his profile does not mention anything about his former profession.
