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.
