Life and career

Camp was born in San Francisco. She had small early roles in films like Funny Lady with Barbra Streisand in 1975. She also appeared in the Bruce Lee movie Game of Death as his girlfriend, Ann, the young aspiring singer (her scenes were shot with a lookalike as Lee had died before she became involved) performing the film's love theme "Will This Be The Song I'll Be Singing Tomorrow". Camp went on to portray a Playmate in Francis Coppola's 1979 film Apocalypse Now (followed by an actual pictorial in the October 1979 Playboy), though most of her footage was cut from the initial theatrical release. She would later feature more heavily in Coppola's Redux cut. She was also the first actress to play Kristin Shepard, Linda Gray's character's sister, in the primetime soap opera Dallas in 1979. Mary Crosby later was cast in this role.

Camp has worked steadily in film comedies like Peter Bogdanovich's 1981 comedy They All Laughed, 1983's Valley Girl and the 1994 Michael J. Fox comedy Greedy. She often is cast as a police officer, appearing in two of the Police Academy films. Camp has been nominated twice for the Worst Supporting Actress Golden Raspberry Award - first, in 1982, for The Seduction, and then, in 1993, for Sliver. In 1999, she had a small part as character Tracy Flick's overbearing mother in the film Election, with Reese Witherspoon as Tracy. She appeared in the episode "Simple Explanation" of House M.D. in 2009. While continuing to act in shows like HBO's Entourage, Camp is also making a name for herself as a producer. In 2013. she appeared in David O. Russell's American Hustle.

Camp was married to John Goldwyn, a Paramount executive, from 1986 to 2001. They have one daughter, Emily.
