Camargo earned a BA in history while attending Hobart as Christian Minnick, was program director at WEOS-FM and a member of the lacrosse team. His mother, actress Victoria Wyndham, has appeared on the daytime dramas “Guiding Light” and “Another World.” An aunt and a grandfather have also been actors.

A writer, actor and producer, he appeared in the title role of “Coriolanus” for five weeks in February and March 2005 at the Theatre For A New Audience in New York.

After graduating from HWS and then Juilliard, he landed leading roles in the Public Theater's summer productions of Shakespeare in the Park and in David Hare's Skylight on Broadway. He then moved to England and worked with the inaugural Globe Theatre for a year and a half.

Upon returning to New York, he made “four or five independent films. While each of these roles was a wonderful experience, five years of low pay took their toll,” and he decided it was time to try his talent in Hollywood. By this point, he had a bicoastal agent, so making the transition was fairly easy, he said. His most recent big role was Pavel in “K-19: The Widowmaker,” with Harrison Ford.

All this work has gained him a listing in the Internet Movie Database, IMDb.
