Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

An underappreciated favorite among movie fans for over four decades, actress Colleen Camp began her career in saucy, lightweight comedies like "The Swinging Cheerleaders" (1974) that emphasized her California-bred looks. She occasionally received a role that allowed her to display her knack for comedy, such as "Smile" (1975) or "They All Laughed" (1981), the latter directed by one-time boyfriend Peter Bogdanovich. Frustrated by the lack of substantive roles, she settled into a string of comic character roles in films like "Valley Girl" (1983), "Wayne's World" (1992) and "Election" (1999), while developing a second career as a producer. Camp's career remained busy as she entered her fifth decade, which stood as a testament to both her determination and versatility.
