A cameo, in general terms, is a gem or other ornament which shows a head or bust in one colour in profile against a background of a different colour...ie so that the head stands out. The word came to be applied to a small acting r�le which stands out from the other lesser parts in the drama. That is why it generally refers to a 'tiny' part played by a 'great' actor.
