When she auditioned for The Mask, she was trying to get a role as a supporting character. Yet after enduring 12 callbacks she was awarded the role of the movie's female lead, Tina Carlyle, a mob moll. This would be the movie that launched her acting career and made her a star.
Though Cameron was supposed to go on to star in the Mortal Kombat movie, a wrist injury ended the opportunity for her to do so. She then turned to movies made by independent film companies.
