Tim Campbell, born in Sydney, is best known for playing the character of Dan Baker in the Australian soap opera Home and Away.

Campbell formerly starred in the children's television show Snobs with Indiana Evans. He also appeared briefly in Water Rats as a police officer. Campbell is also the only Home and Away actor to make an appearance on the show's first podcast, Baycast.

Campbell was a contestant in series six of Dancing with the Stars, which premiered on 20 February 2007. He made it to the semi-final on 24 April, maintaining impressive scores throughout the series. He left Home and Away on 5 October 2007 after filming his final scenes.

He also hosted the Seven Network's National Bingo Night with former Girlband member Renee Bargh. In 2008, he cut ties with the Seven Network and transferred to the Nine Network to host a revived version of Wheel of Fortune titled Million Dollar Wheel of Fortune which premiered on 26 May. However on 27 June it was announced that the show was to be cancelled. He will take over Joey Fatone's hosting duties for the second season of The Singing Bee.

In late 2007, rumours then began circulating that Tim was dating former Idol contestant, the singer Anthony Callea, but it was not until 13 February 2008 that the rumours were confirmed, with Tim telling a breakfast radio show that "we have gotten to a point where we are very happy together." Tim reckons both he and Anthony have each broken up with their previous partners and for now, are just friends. They met when they were performing together in the musical Rent. "(Anthony and I) are mates - he's had his rough trot, I'm going through a rough trot and I'm really concerned for my (ex) partner," Tim said.

"Coming out at 20 changed me a bit, but at 32, I'm pretty comfortable with who I am and what I'm doing." Tim said. But more than anything, Tim is hopeful his sexuality won't overshadow his work. "There's nothing in the way of being ashamed about this (but) the label thing worries me a bit because I don't want my work to be affected," he said. "If every time I'm written about now it's as 'the gay actor' it would bore the hell out of me.
