  • Biography
  • Known to television fans as the screamfest series Harper's Island's resident flirt Chloe Carter, American actress and model Cameron Richardson has finally made a splash into popular mainstream television. After starring in less popular or poorly-rated shows, Richardson was featured as a prominent player in a hit prime-time series. She started off her career as a model in the '90s, posing for magazines such as Interview, Maxim, Mademoiselle, and Cosmopolitan and made a shift into acting as she moved from New Jersey to Los Angeles in 2001. Since then, Cameron has appeared in numerous television shows and films. From bit parts in raunchy comedies early on in her career, her roles in films have since been more diverse and challenging. While born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Cameron grew up in trailer park neighborhoods in New Jersey. In 1997, she finished secondary education at Old Bridge High School in Old Bridge Township, New Jersey and subsequently moved to New York City to seek opportunities in modeling. Apart from gracing the pages of fashion magazines, she has also been listed among top models and actresses in men's magazine polls. Her work as a model gave her a chance to travel to the West Coast and even to overseas locations. It also afforded her an opening towards beginning an acting career. In 2000, Richardson made her television debut as an undercover FBI agent posing as a regular teenage daughter on Cover Me: Based on the True Life of an FBI Family. She then made her transition into the big screen with three not-so-memorable comedy flicks: Frank McKlusky, C.I. (2002), After School Special (2003), and National Lampoon Presents Dorm Daze (2003). Her other films include the romantic drama The Good Humor Man (2005) with Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother) and Jorge Garcia (Lost), the thriller Open Water 2: Adrift (2006), and the family comedy Alvin and the Chipmunks (2007) with Jason Lee (My Name is Earl). On television, one of her more memorable appearances was her portrayal of a real-life teenage model in an episode of House in 2006. In 2009, she was cast by CW as the sultry seductress Chloe, one of the bridesmaids in the wedding of Trish (Katie Cassidy) and Henry (Christopher Gorham) on Harper's Island.moreless

    • Cameron: (about doing her bridge scene on "Harper's Island") I would just lean back. I'd never let go of that bridge. I had a harness on, but I think I could have fallen. There was no safety net underneath that bridge, because I had the harness on. I never actually let go. I was white-knuckling it.

    • Cameron: (comparing herself to her "Harper's Island" character) I mostly really love playing different characters and someone opposite of myself. Chloe is the opposite of me. She's kind of flirtatious and sexy. And in my real life, I'm not really like that. I'm kind of like a tomboy - a running, surfing and hiking type of person.

    • Cameron: You have to put some effort into seducing a guy -- lingerie can help with that. You don't want to spend a lot of cash... because it's only going to be ripped off anyway.

    • Cameron: I'm always watching the Discovery Health Channel. The baby with two heads? My life as a hermaphrodite? Those shows suck you in.

    • Cameron: I'd rather just chill and let the right thing come to me than be the desperate actor. You can't force it.
