CAMILLE BULLOCK is an actor, playwright, teacher, and recent graduate of the MFA Acting Program at Ohio State. In theater, she values the heartbreaking simplicity of the everyday, especially when it is juxtaposed with fantastic, magical or particularly cinematic moments.
Originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, Camille first showed an interest in theater when her oldest brother appeared in an angsty fourth grade musical about the deforestation of the Amazon called Holding Up the Sky. At three years old, she watched a VHS tape of the performance daily and spoke the lines along with the actors. After that, she spent much of her childhood gleefully playing male roles in various local children’s theater productions. She wrote her first (and very rarely performed) play, The Leprechaun in the Closet at age 8. It’s all been downhill from there.
Camille studied Journalism and Theater Studies at Emory University. Although she had plans to become an on-air reporter, an internship at the CNN Center in Atlanta made her realize that she would rather be making theater doing than doing anything else. Before moving to Columbus to pursue her MFA, she spent two years teaching elementary school in the Mississippi Delta as a Teach for America corps member.
