Camilla moved to London in 1997 to train at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts, and lived in London for five years.  

Her passion for film led her to the TVI Studios’ “Young Professional Actors Summer Program” in Los Angeles, in 2002.
She came back in 2004 for the “One year acting for film program” at the New York Film Academy, at Universal Studios. Her teachers were industry professionals, like multi award winning actor/director John Henry Richardson, and actress and founder of Actor’s Fast Track, Valorie Hubbard.

In the last few years she has appeared in Norwegian TV-series Lilyhammer, Roeng, Rekyl, Neste Sommer (Next Summer), Det kunne vært verre (It Could Have Been Worse) and HBO Nordic’s Beforeigners.

Camilla is also a screenwriter and director, and in 2015 she was chosen to pitch her feature film screenplay, Elsa, at the Norwegian International Film Festival in Haugesund. She was also chosen for the European screen writing mentor program, Sources2, alongside writer/director Lukas Dhont (GIRL). 

Camilla wrote and directed the short film Love You to Death (Elsker deg til døde) (and co-produced with Vibeke Karlsen). The film premiered at The Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, in March 2019, at The Golden State Film Festival, and won Best Foreign Language Short.
