At the young age of 18, Cameron Bright has already starred opposite some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Most recently, Bright was seen in theaters in the blockbuster series of feature films, “The Twilight Saga,” in “New Moon” and “Eclipse.” In 2012, he will recur his role as Alec in the highly-anticipated last installment of the series, “Breaking Dawn: Part 2.”
At the age of nine, after getting his start acting in commercials, Bright landed a feature film role starring opposite Academy Award®-winner Robert DeNiro, Greg Kinnear and Rebecca Romijn in the horror film “Godsend” for Lions Gate. Since then, he has carried lead roles in over ten major movies, as well as appeared in numerous television series. Some of Bright’s recent credits include the independent film “Walled In,” in which he stars opposite Mischa Barton; the independent film “Normal” starring opposite Carrie Anne Moss; and “An American Affair” starring opposite Gretchen Mol. Before his role in the “Twilight” movies, Bright was seen in theaters in Brett Ratner's “X-Men 3” as the mutant Leech, who has the anti-mutant antibody around which the film focuses.
