Dean Cameron grew up in Norman, Oklahoma just outside of Oklahoma City. He would visit his father in Santa Barbara during the summers, where he began doing community theater.
During those early years, Dean acted in plays with Anthony Edwards and Eric Stoltz, and remains friends with them to this day. In 1980, Dean Cameron made the drive to Hollywood to pursue a career in acting.
He started getting bit parts on different shows, and a break came when he was cast in the made-for-TV movie Prince of Bel Air starring Mark Harmon. Also, in 1985, he was cast to play Jeff Spicoli in the CBS series adaptation of Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
His real break, however, came when he was cast as Chainsaw in Summer School. The film did well, and Dean got a development deal with Paramount. He has continued acting in numerous films and television shows, including Ski School and E.R..
