Born in Taipei, Taiwan, Camille Chen was raised in Texas, where she participated in the soccer, swim, cheerleading, and drill teams throughout middle and high school. However, when she was cast as Connie Wong in a high school production of "A Chorus Line," Chen finally discovered her calling. She studied theater at the University of Texas at Austin, and even booked some of her first jobs while she was still enrolled, providing the English voiceover dub for the anime series "Eden's Bowy" (TV Tokyo, 1999-2000) and eventually playing Miss New Hampshire in the comedy "Miss Congeniality" (2000). After moving to Los Angeles following graduation, Chen landed a starring role in a campaign for Old Navy, and eventually began finding roles in projects like "Spy Kids 3: Game Over" (2003). In 2006, Chen's profile was raised considerably when she was cast on the Aaron Sorkin series "Studio City on the Sunset Strip" (NBC, 2006-07). She would go on to make guest starring appearances on shows like "Californication" (Showtime, 2007-2014) and "American Horror Story" (FX, 2011-) before joining the cast of the true crime series "Unsolved" (USA, 2018-) in 2018.
