Date of Birth : Jan 26th 1993
Bright was born Cameron Douglas Crigger in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada; he was given his middle name, “Douglas”, after his maternal grandfather. Bright has a scar on his eyebrow which he got as a toddler, after his brother chased him around a rose bush. He still lives on Vancouver Island BC, with his mother, Anne, his older brother, Bryce and his two dogs. His parents divorced in 1995.
Bright’s first acting job was in a commercial for Telus, which was soon followed by a guest appearance on the television series, Higher Ground. He subsequently appeared in several minor roles in made-for-television films, and was credited as “Cameron Crigger” for his early roles (from the 2000 television movie, The Christmas Secret, to an episode of Night Visions).
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. He was involved in a similar controversy in 2006 on the television program Stargate SG-1 when he played the character Orlin in a younger body in the episode The Fourth Horseman that had previously been romantically involved with Amanda Tapping’s character.
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, the action-thriller named Running Scared (starring Paul Walker) and X-Men: The Last Stand, where he played the mutant Leech that has the anti-mutant antibody around which the film focuses.
Most recently he appeared in “The 4400” on the episode “The Wrath Of Graham” as a high school student named Graham Holt who develops an ability after injecting himself with Promicin.
