Other projects she’s worked on include “Swordfish” and “Magic Mike”.

The Riches of Camryn Grimes

Camryn grew up in California, the eldest of seven siblings, and being so close to the center of the entertainment industry, she began taking up auditions for acting roles, expressing an interest in the craft even as a child. Her parents were very supportive of her, if it was something she really wanted to do, and if it was fun for her.

In 1997, she made her first television appearance in an episode of “JAG”, but what would establish her career was when she was cast as Cassie Newman in the soap “The Young and the Restless”.

The series began in the 1970s and follows the story of two families, one working-class and the other wealthy, so featuring the longest rivalry of any American soap opera. Over the years, the family’s stories intertwined, and more families were introduced. Unlike many of its competitors, “The Young and the Restless” enjoys consistently high ratings, even with many changes in the television industry. The series is also connected to “The Bold and the Beautiful”, with characters making crossover appearances.

Success as Cassie Newman and Other Projects

Camryn’s character was introduced in 1997 as the daughter of the character Sharon Newman.

She was absent from the show because she was given up for adoption early on, but then resurfaced. She became part of a storyline that involved Newman and Grace Turner, until proof was shown that she was related to Sharon leading to their eventual reunion. For her performance, Camryn was nominated twice for a Daytime Emmy Award, winning in 2000, actually becoming the youngest recipient of the Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series award.

In 2005, following years without any progress for her character, she was killed-off in a car accident, but continued to reprise her role sporadically, appearing in dream sequences or hallucinations.

During this period, she looked to other projects such as “Swordfish”, which saw her work with stars such as Hugh Jackman and John Travolta. Despite the film being panned by critics, it has gained a cult following over the years.

Guest Appearances and Return to The Young and the Restless

In the mid-2000s, Grimes began appearing in other popular television shows, mostly as a guest. Some of her projects include “ER”, “Cold Case”, “Make it or Break It”, and “Ghost Whisperer”. She also had a minor role in the 2012 film “Magic Mike”, appearing as a birthday girl.

Other projects included independent films such as “AWOL”, “Paper Bags”, and “The Bournes Anonymous” which was a short film.

In 2014, she returned to “The Young and the Restless” after sequences where viewers thought that she was merely a hallucination, later revealed that she was Cassie Newman’s twin Mariah Copeland. The character saw a total shift in her personality compared to her days as Cassie, portraying a different woman with a different past.Her return to the show was met with a positive response, and her character’s popularity blossomed further when she became involved in a romantic storyline with Tessa Porter.

While she initially thought that the romance would attract negative responses, their relationship has been received positively, and she’s become a consistent presence.

For her performance as Mariah, she won a Daytime Award for Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in 2018. This gave her an unusual achievement, winning a Daytime Emmy twice, 20 years apart, with different characters on the same show.

Recent Projects

Camryn has also made guest appearances in “Animal Kingdom” and “The Mentalist”, as well as in the short film “I Would Kill for That” as the character Tracy.

In 2019, she appeared in an episode of “NCIS” playing the character Marine Corporal Laney Alimnote, a move away from her usual portrayal in the soap opera, showing a stronger personality with her character having a military background. The police procedural show has been running since 2003. NCIS stands for Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and follows a fictional team within the service that operates in Washington, DC. The show is related to “JAG”, Grimes’s very first acting project. She previously appeared in “NCIS: Los Angeles”, but playing a different character. Since then, she has not yet taken any other projects apart from “The Young and the Restless”.

Personal Life

Camryn is single, and while she has been shown in a same-sex relationship in the soap, she has not confirmed to be bisexual or lesbian, expressing that she only engaged in the relationship as the character.

She is a big fan of the “Harry Potter” franchise, and identifies closely with House Gryffindor, the same House of which the titular character Harry Potter and his friends are a part. She is also a big fan of “Star Wars”, as seen on her social media account. During her free time, she loves going to beaches and other places with large bodies of water. She is very adventurous and takes the opportunity for adventures travel when she can.
