Camille became lead singer of the Margo Lewis Explosion rock band in the 1970s and was signed to a disco contract in the late 1970s.


Throughout the next 25 years, Saviola would perform in theater, television, and films. She is best known for her supporting roles as an Italian, Latino or Jewish character. She also appeared as a Bajoran religious leader, Kai Opaka, in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
