Jessica Cameron was born and raised in Owen Sound, Ontario in Canada and moved to Toronto to study fashion at Ryerson University. After finishing her degree she moved to Ohio to work as a fashion designer and in her spare time she decided to try an acting class. The acting bug bit, and Jessica decided to make acting her full time career.
In the last few years she has been cast in more then 70 projects including music videos, TV shows and feature films. In 2010 she won an industry award for being a Rising Movie Star. Some of her favorite recent performances include: playing sorority leader in The Sleeper and she starring with horror icon Steven Geoffrey’s in the film “Mr. Hush”. She also had the chance to work with legendary director Jim Wynorski on the syfy channel film “Camel Spiders” and the established horror director Jeff Burr on “Resurection”. She was thrilled to play screen legend Marilyn Monroe in “The Black Dahlia Haunting”, having been a fan of hers for many years.
In 2012 Cameron starred in the hit TLC Show Brides of Beverly Hills for its second season. Acting as a wedding dress stylist on the show utilized Cameron’s fashion history as well as camera skills.
2013 was the first year in which Cameron stepped behind the camera to direct and produce Truth Or Dare, a torture film that she co-wrote with Jon Scott Higgins. Truth Or Dare would screen nearly 50 times all over the world and win 33 awards. Cameron would direct several short films in 2013 including a segment for the Soska sisters Blood Drive PSA. She would produce 2 more feature films (Utero and Save Yourself) before embarking on her most ambitious project yet – filming 3 movies while traveling across the USA in an rv with some of her favorite film makers. The team shot 2 narrative features (Desolation and Mania) and the documentary surrounding the process called Kill The Production Assistant. Mania would mark Cameron’s 2nd time directing a feature film.
