Born in British Columbia, actor Cameron Bright began his career on a highly visible but emotionally demanding note: his first two major feature film roles cast him as the sexually abused 7-year-old victim of a deranged pedophile father (Eric Stoltz) in the Ashton Kutcher sci-fi outing The Butterfly Effect (2004), and as a 10-year-old spousal reincarnation who has an affair with an adult widow (Nicole Kidman) in the eerie psychodrama Birth (2004). In successive years, Bright racked up a series of turns in one prestigious Hollywood feature after another; additional credits included Thank You For Smoking (2005), X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), Running Scared (2006), and Juno (2007). In 2009, Bright starred opposite Gretchen Mol in the outing An American Affair. He would spend the next several years appearing in movies like New Moon, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and Little Glory.
