And catch Camille on Hallmark’s Ships In The Night: A Martha’s Vineyard Mystery on Sunday June 20th
Award-winning actress Camille Mitchell is thrilled to join the Aurora Teagarden Family playing Lena Miller, Mother of the Groom to co-star Niall Matter (Eureka). As Nick’s mother, she joins Candace Cameron Bure (Full House) who returns as crime-buff and bride-to-be in Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: Til Death Do Us Part, the latest installment in the hit mystery franchise premiering Sunday, June 13 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries along with returning co-star Marilu Henner (Taxi) and Lexa Doig (Andromeda) in the US.
“What a pleasure to work with this cast and production team that feels like such a family. During Covid so many weddings have been postponed or shrunk to a party of 10 so it was a real joy to be on set at the Hallmark wedding of my TV “son” in such fabulous company – and just enjoy the celebration!,” beamed Mitchell.
Just days before Aurora’s wedding, a body is discovered, and she fears her father may be a suspect. She and Nick race to solve the cold case before they walk down the aisle.
Murder mystery fans can also catch Camille in Ships In the Night: A Martha’s Vineyard Mystery on Sunday June 20th on the Hallmark Channel in her 2021 Leo Award nominated performance as Lila Winchester opposite Jesse Metcalfe (Desperate Housewives). When Lila Winchester’s art gallery is robbed and leads to the death of the contemptible gallery manager, a former Boston detective teams up with a local doctor–and old flame– to catch the killer.
Camille has been a working actress since she was 19. She grew up surrounded by the entertainment industry. Her father was Hollywood star Cameron Mitchell (My Favourite Year, High Chaparral, How to Marry A Millionaire) so she knows what the business is all about. And nothing seems to slow her down – not even the pandemic. This past year alone she has revelled in portraying a range of roles from the murder suspect to the powerful fairy to the loyal housekeeper to the proud mother-in-law in Ships In The Night: A Martha’s Vineyard Mystery, Supernatural Academy, A Glenbroke Christmas and Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: Til Death Us Do Part. Not even a dislocated kneecap suffered mid-shoot during Aurora Teagarden during an at-home workout stopped her from filming even though she had to be briefly wheeled down the aisle on a dolly (with her crutches hidden from view) so the show could go on!
While many actresses leave their profession once they are a ‘certain age’, that hasn’t stopped Camille who continues to work consistently embracing her age in the tradition of other working veteran actresses. She also embraced a positive attitude during the Covid shut down to use this time to explore her culinary skills exploring new recipes and eating healthy. Her last trip to Italy she took lessons from celebrated chefs, which has motivated her family’s homemade pasta events. Her brother Cameron Mitchell Jr (Hollywoodland), son Charlie-Joe Mitchell (Altered Carbon); niece Jinjara Mitchell (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist) and nephew Jordan Connor (Riverdale) are all in the business.
Earlier this year Camille took on the intriguing role of her Leo Award nominated role as Lila in Ships in the Night: A Martha’s Vineyard Mystery airing on the Hallmark Channel alongside Jesse Metcalfe and Sarah Lind. As part of the Hallmark 2020 Christmas movie line up, Camille plays Martha Munro in A Glenbrooke Christmasalongside Amber Reeser and Antonio Cupo.
Camille joins her talented actor friend Jerry Trimble (Chesapeake Shores, iZombie) in the short film The Architect’s Dream directed by Francesco Papetti which will hit the festival season once it opens up.
You can also catch Camille in her recurring role as Rosie on Netflix’s dramedy, The Healing Powers of Dude. When an 11-year-old boy with social anxiety disorder must start middle school, he finds strength in a lovable comfort mutt named Dude. As a dog-owner all her life, Camille adopted Ginger from the downtown Los Angeles Pound and is no stranger to the healing powers of canines.
Camille was also nominated for 2019 and 2018 Leo Awards for Best Guest Performance in a Dramatic Series on Netflix’s hit series Van Helsing with Kelly Overton and for her role as Esperanza on ABC’s Somewhere Between with Paula Patton. Camille also joined Katherine McNamara who stars as Mia Smoak, in the Arrow Spin Off Pilot Green Arrow and the Canaries.
Camille has garnered extraordinary acclaim for her versatility onstage and onscreen including her Leo Award-nominated role portraying tough-talking Sheriff Nancy Adams on the CW’s hit television show Smallville for five seasons. A leading lady at the Stratford and Shaw festivals, where she was hailed her as “a gift to the theatre” by the London Times, Camille won Canada’s Jessie Award for her portrayal of Ariel in Shakespeare’s The Tempest and was also nominated for Best Actress Awards for Blanche in A Streetcar Named Desire, opposite Kim Coates (star of Sons of Anarchy, Bad Blood), Madame Tourvel in Les Liaisons Dangereuses, and Elizabeth in The Crucible.
