With many successful graduates from around the world, UL Lafayette has once again been made proud by one of its former students.
Camille Meaux Harman, whose performance as Mary Matalin in the film adaptation of the vice-presidential tenure of Dick Cheney, earned the cast 6 golden globe nominations, is a graduate of University of Louisiana at Lafayette, class of 88.
Harman credits her work in theater programs at the University and in Lafayette with giving her the acting bug.
A Shreveport native who grew up in New Orleans and Lafayette, Harman was classmates at the Academy of the Sacred Heart in Grand Coteau with future Academy Award nominee Salma Hayek.
She’s appeared on television, in several film shorts and commercials, theatrical productions and music videos. “Vice” is Harman’s first full-length film role.
After completing her bachelor’s degree in general studies at UL Lafayette, Harman earned a master of fine arts degree in communication and drama at the University of New Orleans.
Christian Bale’s depiction of Cheney won him an award for best actor in a motion picture, musical or comedy.
