In 1998, Cameron Mathison became an instant daytime star when he landed the role of Ryan Lavery on ABC’s “All My Children,” becoming a popular leading man involved in epic romances with Rebecca Budig’s Greenlee Smythe and Esta Terblanche’s Gillian Andrassy (via Soaps In Depth). Mathis stayed on “All My Children” until 2011, and then spent nearly a decade with the Hallmark Channel while still gracing TV screens during the day.
In 2021, Mathison made his way back to ABC soaps when he took on the role of a recast Drew Cain on “General Hospital.” As Drew, Mathison plays a man who was held captive in a Greek prison for two years before returning to Port Charles to be reunited with his friends and family. However, as of this writing, he is still under very soap opera-like mind control, which is something you wouldn’t usually see in a Hallmark movie where every story has a happy ending. It was actually a Hallmark movie that Mathison credits with saving his life.
