Cameron Bright (born January 26, 1993) is a Canadian actor. He has appeared in the films Godsend, Birth, Running Scared, Ultraviolet, X-Men: The Last Stand and Thank You for Smoking and appeared in The Twilight Saga: New Moon as Alec.
Cameron Bright 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 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, though this wasn't known at the time. In addition, the two actors were never filmed together in the same room at the time of the bathtub scene.
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, and the action-thriller named Running Scared (starring Paul Walker). He also starred in X-Men: The Last Stand, where he played the mutant Leech, who has the mutant antibody.
He appeared in the TV series The 4400 in the episode "The Wrath Of Graham" as a high school student named Graham Holt who develops an ability after injecting himself with Promicin. He has also played a host carrier for a cure for humanity in more than one movie.
Bright played the Volturi vampire Alec, twin brother to Dakota Fanning's character Jane, in the 2009 film New Moon. He reprised his role as Alec in the 2010 film, Eclipse, which was based on the third book of the Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer. He has also been confirmed to reprise his role in Breaking Dawn, the final chapter of the Twilight series.
