ALL MY CHILDREN just wrapped production for ABC earlier this week, but Cameron Mathison (Ryan) already has a new gig lined up — and with another Pine Valley fan fave! The actor will star opposite Sydney Penny (ex-Julia) in the upcoming Lifetime movie The Wife He Met Online. “Sydney’s the lead, and I’m right up there [in a supporting role]. Isn’t that the best thing in the world?” Mathison marvels. “When I heard that, it was a big factor in my decision to be away from my family for three weeks.”
Having played a romantic leading man for the better part of the last 13 years on AMC, Mathison can’t wait to sink his teeth into the mystery thriller. “I don’t get to do that too often,” he shares. “It’s a cool character not that dissimilar to Ryan, but at the same time, I’m going to try to add some differences. It’s nice to get a movie role right out of the gate.”
The made-for-television movie isn’t Mathison’s only new project. When Internet giant Yahoo launches a series of original Web programs starting October 3, Mathison will be helping prospective grooms pop the question in some rather unusual ways — including one arrival by parachute! — as the host of ULTIMATE PROPOSAL.
