Hi, my name is Cameron, I am a Brampton born and raised actor. I started doing theatre when I got accepted into an arts program in high school and continued my professional training at Sheridan College and the University of Toronto Mississauga.

When I am not performing I am likely reading, watching whatever is new on Netflix or working on some of my own writing. Keep in touch with me on social media by following me on Instagram &Twitter @Camm_grant
Living by the lake
How do you make your house a home?
"It's a mindset for me. I move around a lot, so when I get to a new space I say "this is home." This is where I rest my head, this is where I am safe, where I find comfort."
In three words, what does the future look like to you?
Living By The Lake is a photo journal series, created by Andrew Broderick, that looks into the lives of various company member at the Shaw Festival. These photos were captured during the summer of 2020.
Favourite daily ritual?
"Morning coffee. There is something about a french press that makes it so much better. Followed by 30 minutes of reading."
It's my first time visiting NOTL, where should I go?
"Get away from the main street and find some nature. I love walking through 'The Common' or following the heritage trails. This town is filled with so much natural history it is both overwhelming and settling."
In an alternate universe I would have been performing at The Shaw Festival this season as Charley in Charley's Aunt and John Nevins in Trouble In Mind
