Berkeley, California

Camille Braverman (portrayed by Bonnie Bedilia) is the wife of Zeek Braverman and the mother of Adam, Sarah, Crosby, and Julia Braverman. She can be considered the backbone of the family, always being there for a family member when they are in trouble. Though sincere, and wise, her advice isn't always want her kids want to hear. A good example of this is when she tries to get Adam and Christine to accept their daughter's relationship with Alex, which Christine does not want to hear, leading to a fight between the two until she turns to her mother-in-law for emotional support. Another example is when she reminds Zeke that every visit to his mom always ends in disappointment.

While supportive, she can also be headstrong, and takes more of a firm role when pushed, as when she yells at Sarah for "using" her to baby-sit Drew while he's on punishment.

However, overall, the kids view their mother as a good mother, and credit her as so throughout the series whenever they have problems with their own kids. Camille shows herself approved by listening and understanding her kids, and always being there for them when they need her, one of the major qualities that make her a great wife and mother.


Though not  specifically stated, it is implied at Camille is about 63 when the series begins and 67 by season five. This can be figured out by the fact that she reveals she turned forty when Sarah was a teenager on the back of a motorcycle. presumbly fifteen. This would fit Adam's statement in season one that both she and Zeek were married for forty-six years, meaning she married Zeek around seventeen. This may explain why she never had a career of her own. Lastly, Bonnie Bedelia(currently 65) states in an interview for season 5 that the character is a little older than she is, also supporting this..
