Biography

New York City, New York, USA
Cambridge won a four-year scholarship to study medicine but decided, instead, to become an actor, leaving college in his third year. He acted in many off-Broadway productions, winning the Village Voice's Obie Award in Jean Genet's "The Blacks"; and, on Broadway, he gained a Tony Award Nomination in "Purlie's Victorious".

Having previously had occasional parts, he established himself in films in the late sixties. Read more...
