Cameron Douglas Bright (born January 26, 1993) is a Canadian actor. He has appeared in numerous high profile roles in the films Godsend, Birth, Running Scared, Ultraviolet, X-Men: The Last Stand and Thank You for Smoking.
After a supporting part in The Butterfly Effect, Bright's first major role was in Godsend, a horror film co-starring Robert De Niro; the film was released in April 2004 to mixed reviews. In his next film, Birth, he played a ten-year old boy who claims to be the reincarnation of a woman's (Nicole Kidman) deceased husband. Two scenes within the movie sparked controversy and drew media attention to Bright. In one scene, Bright and Kidman's characters kiss; in the other, the two share a bathtub. The actors wore flesh colored swimsuits in the bath scenes and were never really naked although this wasn't known at the time.
Bright was the second choice to play Klaus Baudelaire in the film Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. He was instead cast in several Hollywood films, all of which were released in 2006, including Thank You for Smoking, Ultraviolet, and the action-thriller named Running Scared (starring Paul Walker). He also starred in X-Men: The Last Stand, where he played the mutant Leech, who has the anti-mutant antibody around which the film focuses.
Cameron recently moved to the United States in hopes of finding more acting opportunities.
