Dove Cameron

Dove Cameron Headshot

Actress

Birth Date: January 15, 1996

Age: 28 years old

Birth Place: Seattle, Washington

Despite her unusual first name, Dove Cameron's rise to Hollywood stardom was anything but strange. A native of Seattle, WA, Cameron moved to Los Angeles as young teenager to pursue acting professionally. She soon began landing bit parts on shows like "Shameless" (Showtime 2011- ) and "The Mentalist" (CBS 2008-15), before nabbing the lead as identical twins on the Disney Channel's "Liv and Maddie" (2013-17).

The show was an immediate hit when it debuted in September 2013, with the pilot episode being the most watched show on the network in nearly three years, at a time when its lead actress had just reached the legal age to drive a car. Born in Seattle on January 14, 1996, Cameron took an immediate interest in acting. She started performing at local theaters throughout her community at the age of 8, while quickly becoming a local star.

But eventually the limitations of community theater proved too confining, which is why at the age of 14 Cameron decided to relocate to Los Angeles. Although the opportunities to act on a professional level were seemingly limitless, it would be another two years before the young actress landed her first screen role on the Showtime comedy about a dysfunctional Chicago family, "Shameless." Over the next year, Cameron continued landing small roles on shows like "Malibu County" (ABC 2012-13), before landing the dual lead of Liv Rooney and her identical twin Maddie on the Disney Channel's "Liv and Maddie."

The show premiered in September 2013, and quickly earned a devoted following. Cameron is also known for her role as Mal in the Descendants film series. In addition to her acting work, Cameron in 2013 recorded a cover version of Imagine Dragons' hit "On Top of the World," which was released as a promotional single by Disney.
