Cameron Murray is a fictional character in the Emmerdale franchise. He appeared as a supporting protagonist in 2011 and later served as the anti-villain in 2012 and the primary antagonist in 2013.
He was portrayed by Dominic Power.
Initially embarking on an affair when Debbie Dingle was working in Jersey in 2010, Cameron came to the village after tracking Debbie down, telling her that he has left his wife and sons for her. Debbie tells him that their affair was a mistake. Carl King gave Cameron a job at Emmerdale Haulage and he catches the eye of Eve Jenson. Debbie finally gives into Cameron and they get back together. He also moves into Tug Ghyll Cottage with her and her daughter, Sarah, and Andy Sugden, Sarah's father, is jealous of Sarah and Cameron's relationship. Cameron also clashes with Debbie's father, Cain Dingle and tries to persuade Cain not to interfere in his and Debbie's relationship.
Debbie learns Cameron had another affair after she left Jersey, but he insists it meant nothing and is delighted when Debbie tells him that she is pregnant but miscarries not long afterwards. Cameron tries to support her and not let his feelings show. His sons, Dylan and Harry Murray, come to stay for a few days. Sarah become sick and they learn she has a rare genetic disorder. Cameron hires his own truck and starts poaching the King's customers. Carl attacks Cameron's truck and Cameron then plots to ruin the Kings. Cameron, Cain and Charity Dingle steal the King's haulage trucks and sell them off. Cameron then wipes all the files containing contracts from Carl's computer. This prompts Cain to tell Cameron he is part of the Dingle clan.
Sarah falls ill and Cameron supports Debbie. Debbie realizes that she needs to conceive a savior sibling with Andy and tries for IVF, however when this fails she sleeps with him. Cameron is unhappy when her learns they had sex together and they briefly separate but soon get back together. Cameron embarks on an affair with Debbie's aunt Chas Dingle and promises to leave Debbie for her but chickens out. Chas then ends the affair. Carl later discovers the affair and begins blackmailing Cameron and Chas for money. Cameron becomes desperate to raise the amount and he and Chas attempt to rob The Woolpack. This does not work however as Carl sees Cameron and phones the police. Chas takes the blame for the robbery. On Emmerdale's 40th Live Anniversary, Cameron threatens Carl in the church but Carl just laughs Cameron off. Later that episode Cameron sees Chas running away and goes to see what she's running from. He finds a weakened Carl (after arguing with Chas, confessing that he killed his father Tom King for her and attempting to rape her which results Chas hitting Carl on the head with a brick which wounds him but fails to kill him) and they argue. Carl goads Cameron about the affair and how Debbie will react. Carl tells Cameron he will never be able to kill him because he is indestructible as Cameron hits him over the head with a brick, killing him. Cameron checks if Carl is alive; when he is not, Cameron flees before Carl's dead body is discovered by Adam Barton and Victoria Sugden and they are unaware the whole incident and Cameron's killing blow.
Meanwhile Debbie is giving birth to baby Jack, allowing Cameron to wash his bloodstained clothes. Cameron is thrilled about Jack's birth and cannot wait to be a family with Debbie, Sarah and Jack. Later on Debbie, The Dingles and the residents discover Carl's murder and death although none are aware that Cameron killed him, Debbie finds out about the affair and dumps Cameron. Cameron tries to persuade Chas to flee Emmerdale, scared what will happen to them once Cain finds out but Cain along with Charity (and Zak trying to stop the couple for doing any nonsense) stop them and are arrested for assault on Cameron but after Cain and Charity's arrest, Chas confesses to murdering Carl, not knowing it was actually Cameron and Chas is also arrested. Cameron does not admit to killing Carl and while Cain and Charity are released without charge, Chas is charged with his murder. Consumed with guilt, he confesses the truth to Alex Moss. Cameron is then relieved to hear that Chas has been acquitted, but he suspects Alex may go to the police, so Cameron knocks Alex down with a wooden object lying on the floor and he takes Alex hostage in a haulage van. On 24 December Cameron and Alex argue as Alex begs Cameron to let him out and he'll won't tell anyone, Cameron is hesitant at first but then agrees but not after taunting him about what's been happening with him since Carl's murder, eventually realizing Cameron is distracted, Alex escapes and runs through the woods but Cameron is too quick and catches Alex before dragging him back to the van. As Alex ran, Cameron cannot risk him going to the police to reveal the secret about Carl's death (Although Alex didn't plan to do it, Cameron just assumed he was going to do so) so Cameron kills him in the van. Cameron is later seen burying Alex in the woods along with his bag of clothes he stole. However later work begins on the site where Alex is buried so Cameron returns to the gravesite and unearths Alex' decaying corpse and moves it to a different location and burns Alex' bag before returning to the village.
Months after Alex's death Cameron discovers that Thomas King (Carl King's son) has been stalking Chas since Carl's death (As everyone assumes Chas killed Carl, Thomas discovered this as well but was unaware that Cameron had done it and not Chas) and he threatens him to stop bugging Chas, a while later Jimmy King (Carl King's brother) discovers this and is angry at Thomas for doing so but he later forgives him, a couple of days later Thomas visits the Woolpack with Jimmy and asks Marlon Dingle if he can claim a job as a chef in the Woolpack to apologize to Chas for stalking her (although he's said sorry before he wants to make her happy) both Marlon and Chas are pleased about this but Cameron (who's still suspicious of Thomas) disagrees and keeps threatening him but Marlon keeps telling him to back off and Chas begs Cameron not to make things any worse, later on Chas and Cameron have a date inside the Woolpack Living Room and Thomas cooks some Steak with Marlon's help, however as Chas and Cameron discuss about their relationship an alarm goes off and it is revealed that Thomas over cooked the Steak, Cameron is angry at Thomas and shouts at him but Marlon forgives Thomas and he and Chas demands Cameron to stop it as Cameron walks out, furiously. Moments later Cameron confronts Thomas and demands that he leaves the village just then Thomas stands up to Cameron and furiously reveals that this was never about Chas but was for him and his dad (Carl King) he then cries (because he's scared of Cameron after the Main Antagonist kept on bugging him) and walks out on Cameron, who later has a change of heart and feels sorry for Thomas, even the loss of his father (despite their man of war in 2012 and the fact that Cameron killed Carl) so as Thomas sees Cameron in the living room and is about to leave but Cameron stops Thomas and they have a chat and during the conversation Cameron not only apologizes to Thomas for his behavior towards him (throughout most of the episode) but also explains to him about Carl King including Carl's attempt to rape Chas, he explains that he knew about Chas and Carl 's relationship and Carl thought they were trying to get back together despite the break ups they've had and that no matter what bad things Carl has done, he would never hurt Thomas (although this could not have happened Cameron just felt sorry for Thomas) and Thomas agrees despite telling Cameron that he would of hated his father for attempting to rape her anyway and leaves peacefully past Chas, having witness this, thanks Cameron for going easy on Thomas and Cameron replies that he just felt sorry for Thomas and Cameron and Chas relationship continues.
Cameron shocks the Dingles' and proposes to Chas and she accepts it. Discovering this, Cain confronts Cameron and Chas before warning them that they have one hour to leave the village. From this point on, Cameron isn't scared of Cain and becomes his counterpart when they trade threats to one another. Ignoring Cain's threats, Cameron secretly plots to kill him after witnessing Zak talking to Cain in the garage. When Zak leaves, Cameron confronts Cain and insults him. This confrontation leads to both hardman fighting a one on one brawl before Zak returns with Chas and Moira to stop the fight. Cain gains the upper hand until Cameron smashes Cain's head with a tool box. Cameron proceeds to brutally beat up Cain before grabbing a wrench to kill him, but he stand down and angrily walks off after Chas got in the way.
Sometime later, Cameron eventually discovers that Charity had a fling with Declan Macey. Along the way out, Charity is horrified when Cameron reveals that he knows about between her and Declan and is going to "enjoy tearing her world apart". Charity leaves and reveals this to Declan, leaving the pair worried for what Cameron may have in stall for them. The next day, Cameron blackmails Charity into laying off on Chas and keeping Debbie out of this, He then threatens to tell Jai about this unless she and Declan does as he says. A month later Cameron notices that Robbie Lawson is flirting things with Debbie and the pair just have a short taunt also Cameron is more scarier than Robbie is, Later on Cameron catches Robbie trying to start a fire in the Woolpack where everyone else is having a party but as Robbie refuses he runs away only for Cameron to chase after him as both run away the Woolpack, Cameron chases Robbie and easily outruns him and catches him but after catching him and after Robbie's taunt about what's Cameron goanna do to him, Cameron punches Robbie (knees him in the stomach as the truth) and knocks him out before kidnapping him in the Ford Transit and torturing him, Cameron continues to interrogate Robbie and torture him only to be caught out by Chas who discovers both of the lads actions and Debbie and Megan Macey (Robbie's son) discover this later and blame Robbie but after Robbie is gone Chas blames Cameron for Robbie's kidnap and torture and Cameron just says otherwise and mocks Robbie (not in front of him but in front of Chas), Chas forgives Cameron and the next day (and for various times) Cameron continues to taunt Robbie and outpowers him (Later on Cain taunts Robbie about his relationship with Debbie, Cameron wasn't there but discovered this and may have done the same thing during his kidnap and torture). Later on Declan (Megan's sister and Robbie's uncle) discovers this and visits the Woolpack to demand what's going on and Cameron invites Declan for a chat while Megan and Chas discuss about this. As they pair argue, Cameron blackmails Declan by threatening to tell Katie about her fling with Charity, although Declan does give Cameron some money to try and make peace with him, Cameron threatens Declan by telling him that he's got one more chance, With no way to stop Cameron's blackmail, Declan agrees and leaves. A while later, Cameron discovers Declan's working from the forest in the woods, the same place Cameron killed Alex and buried him in the woods, Cameron demands to know what is it Declan's actually planning (although he's talking to Declan) and Declan to Cameron about his plan and after explaining everything that's happening, Cameron begins to panic and he later messes up Declan's equipment and buries Alex into another location (which may have caused problems for Declan).
Cameron flies his sons over from Jersey to meet Chas properly and the boys are at first wary of Chas. They start to warm to her but they run and hide at Debbie's once they find out from Debbie that Chas murdered Carl, despite the fact that Cameron murdered Carl but as the boys are unaware of this he could never confess the truth to his sons or else things will get a lot worse for Cameron, the next day Cameron flies back to Jersey with his boys after he can't convince them to stay. When he comes back the atmosphere is tense, including the part when he is more concerned about Alex's body, so after breaking Chas promise by attending Brenda Walker's party, he manages to successfully bury Alex's dead body into another location but after burying his dead victim, Cameron becomes more afraid than ever about his victim and the expose of his secret and as he drives his Ford Transit on the way back to Chas, Cameron deliberately crashes his Van and is a little injured but survives, However he is still worried about his murderous plots, Eventually the next day Cameron arrives at the Woolpack safely and reunites with Chas but he does not realize Debbie had just held Chas at gun point and instead they discuss about Debbie's plots against his boys and are worried once his wife Anna Murray finds out about this. Later in the year, Cameron and Chas aim to buy The Woolpack but when Cameron's ex-wife Anna refuses to let Cameron see his boys, they are forced to use the money to apply for custody.

He later learns that Debbie almost murdered Chas by holding her a gunpoint whilst he was away in Jersey. Gennie Sharma begins to notice a connection between both Cameron and Debbie as they begin to get close again and she tries to get the evidence she needs to prove to Chas that she's right about Cameron by breaking into Debbie's house to record the pair.

Cameron comes to live with Debbie but while he is moving his stuff into the house, Cain taunts him. Cameron taunts him back, leading to Cain knocking him unconscious and dragging him into his car. Debbie witnesses this and tries to stop Cain, however Cain drives off. Desperate to know where Cain is taking Cameron, Debbie starts shouting at Charity and Chas, demanding to know where he is.
