Born in Canada in 1954, James Cameron early on harbored screenwriting ambitions, but began with odd jobs on set. His directorial debut was Piranha 2: The Spawning, a dubious start which nevertheless was followed by the classic hit The Terminator, which he also wrote.

This success opened the floodgates of high-concept and highly successful sci-fi outings, which remain Cameron’s signature.

James remains best-known for Titanic, for which he infamously coined himself “King of the World”.
