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:
  • Has a stepson named Jasper, from 'Suzy Amis' (qv)' marriage to 'Sam Robards' (qv).
  • His production company is 'Lightstorm Entertainment'.
  • Considered directing "Solaris" (2002) but opted to produce instead. Job went to 'Steven Soderbergh' (qv).
  • Had daughter, Elizabeth Rose, with Suzi Amis born on 29 December 2006.
  • Lost a plagiarism lawsuit brought by 'Harlan Ellison' (qv) involving the movie _The Terminator (1984)_ (qv). Newer prints of the film acknowledge Ellison.
  • 2007- Ranked #3 on EW's The 50 Smartest People in Hollywood.
  • First wife Sharon Williams got just $1,200 from Cameron in their divorce settlement.
  • Drew the picture of Rose ('Kate Winslet' (qv)) in the movie, _Titanic (1997)_ (qv). The image was flipped so it would appear that Jack ('Leonardo DiCaprio' (qv)) was drawing it with his right hand.
