Multicultural Background 


Cameron’s father is African-American, his mother is Ashkenazi Jewish.



Cameron considered himself more spiritual than religious. In a 2017 interview with Raw Pages, the young actor revealed:

“Recently I’ve gotten way more spiritual than I ever have been. I’ve never been particularly religious but I have recently acknowledged the universe and [its] crazy powers, and that will probably fluctuate for the rest of my life. But I believe in a lot of things that you hear, I believe in karma, I believe that things happen for a reason. I believe that if you put an energy out into the universe, you’ll receive it back.
