BIOGRAPHY:

James Cameron was born in Kapuskasing, Ontario, Canada, on August 16, 1954. He moved to the USA in 1971. The son of an engineer, he majored in physics at California State University but, after graduating, drove a truck to support his screen-writing ambition. He landed his first professional film job as art director, miniature-set builder, and process-projection supervisor on Roger Corman's Battle Beyond the Stars (1980) and debuted as a director with Piranha Part Two: The Spawning (1981) the following year.

In 1984, he wrote and directed The Terminator (1984), a futuristic action-thriller starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Michael Biehn, and Linda Hamilton (I). It was a huge success. After this came a string of successful science-fiction action films such as Aliens (1986) and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). Cameron is now one of the most sought-after directors in Hollywood. He was formerly married to producer Gale Anne Hurd, who produced several of his films. He married Kathryn Bigelow in 1989.


TRIVIA:
  • He and 'Suzy Amis' (qv) are owners of Childspot!, an early childhood center in Wichita, Kansas which is operated by Suzy's sister, Rebecca Amis.
  • Lost a plagiarism lawsuit brought by 'Harlan Ellison' (qv) involving the movie _The Terminator (1984)_ (qv). Newer prints of the film acknowledge Ellison.
  • Security is provided by 'Gavin De Becker' (qv), author of "The Gift of Fear."
  • Received a star at Canada's Walk of Fame in Toronto. Says he's too cheap to pay for a star at the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
  • When he wrote an early script treatment for _Spider-Man (2002)_ (qv), he had the idea of organic web-shooters. This was later included in 'Sam Raimi' (qv)'s film.
  • His production company is 'Lightstorm Entertainment'.
  • A magazine article written about him in the 1980s described how he had three desks set up in his house. At one desk, he was writing the script to _The Terminator (1984)_ (qv), on another, he was finishing the script to _Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985)_ (qv) and on the third, he was writing _Aliens (1986)_ (qv).
  • While editing _Titanic (1997)_ (qv), Cameron had a razor blade taped to the side of the editing computer with the instructions written underneath: "Use only if film sucks!".
