Another birthday in the books… and other than to say thank you all for all the shout outs, I wanted to use this as an opportunity. This is me. In real life I’m shy, I’m a little clumsy, my hair is usually a mess and I get nervous having my picture taken. I like movies and comics and Liverpool Football Club. Like many, I sometimes struggle with my mental health but I’m never alone in that and I’m lucky to be surrounded by people and passions that I love. I’m sharing this because a lot of us (myself included) tend to spend way too much time worrying about who we appear to be as opposed to who we actually are. The person you actually are is infinitely more worth your time. Be kind to yourself always and thank you for coming with me on the journey. 💙

Cameron Cuffe was raised by his father Dana Cuffe and his mother Caroline Cuffe in a west district of London called Hammersmith; he has two siblings called Jamie and Alex.

After that, in 2005 he once again had a minor role in the star-studded comedy thriller entitled “Stories of Lost Souls”, having the chance to work with some of the biggest names in the film industry such as Hugh Jackman, Cate Blanchett, Paul Bettany and James Gandolfini. This experience convinced him that acting was his true calling in life. Having matriculated from high school in Hammersmith, he was accepted into the Lir National Academy of Dramatic Art in Dublin. Following his graduation, he appeared in several plays, the most notable being the Donmar Warehouse production of “City of Angels”, and the Park Theatre production of “The Vertical Hour”, both lauded by the critics, and Cuffe’s performance especially commended.

Also featuring Hugh Grant and Simon Helberg, the film was nominated for two Oscars, and was the first big budget production for the young Cameron.
After that, he lent his voice for the role of Zack in the open world snow sports video game called “Steep”, then in 2017, Cuffe made his small screen debut with a regular role in the war drama series “The Halcyon”, playing William Shannon in the first four episodes of show’s only season.
