Cam appeared in the film Twilight as the primary antagonist
Cam, whose real name is Cameron Joslin Gigandet, made his acting debut on the television crime drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation as a guest star. His official name is Cameron Joslin Gigandet. After that, he went on to play recurrent characters in a variety of different television shows.
The actor gained widespread recognition for his portrayal of James Witherdale, the primary antagonist in the first film in the Twilight film series. Because of his work in the movie, he and Robert Pattinson were named the winners of the “Best Fight” category at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards. In the same year, he was also the recipient of the Teen Choice Award in the category of Choice Movie: Villain.
At the tenth annual Young Hollywood Awards, which took place in 2008, Cam was given the award for “One to Watch.” Pandorum and The Roommate were both suspense thrillers that he starred in during the year 2009. In the movie “Easy A,” which came out in 2010, he played Micah, a student at a Christian high school.
After then, he became a leading actor in a number of movies, including Red Sky, In the Blood, 4 Minute Mile, Broken Vows, The Magnificent Seven, The Shadow Effect, Dangerous Lives, Without Remorse, and Last Shoot Out.
Recent appearances by Gigandet can be found in Blowback
Cam’s most recent role was as Nick, the main character in the movie Blowback, which he starred in. The protagonist of the movie is a master thief by the name of Nick, who is on a mission of vengeance against his old crew, who betrayed him and left him for dead.
During an interview, when asked about his part in the movie, he commented that “Good folks are more challenging.” Even the anti-heroes seem to be more difficult to deal with, at least in my opinion. They are required to follow by a specific set of regulations, as well as a certain code of conduct in their daily lives. There are things and principles, whereas when dealing with the bad guys, it’s a lot more enjoyable.
“They simply have a great deal more liberty. It’s even simpler to find reasons to excuse certain activities they take, and I think a small part of me secretly enjoys living vicariously through them. I’m like, ‘My gosh. I would be so good as a bad guy. If only I could have his life, I’d be so happy. Playing the role of the antagonist is more therapeutic. However, the issue is unquestionably being a good guy while also keeping things fresh, innovative, and intriguing, as he went on to say.
