Cameron Mathison Spreads His Wings
Cameron Mathison is a man of many trades. He's on the hit ABC soap All My Children, has wowed audiences on Dancing with the Stars and recently became part of the Good Morning America family as their new correspondent.
OK! caught up with Mathison where he was eager to talk about another interest and good cause — the 5th Annual ABC/Soapnet for Broadway Cares coming up on March 9.
"It's an organization that obviously raises money for AIDS and grants to help people with AIDS but it does so by taking advantage of the talent pool of Broadway actors," Mathison, who will be hosting the event, tells OK!. "I think it's a great opportunity."
The event, also headlined by another DWTS alum, Susan Lucci, will feature performances by an array of actors, including General Hospital's Tony Geary.
"It's such a way for people, for the actors to show off their talent," Mathison says. "People I act with day in and day out offered to step down on the stage and transform into these Broadway singers and dancers... It's astounding to me."
The actor recently joined Good Morning America as a correspondent. He tells OK!, "I'm really excited. I'm now officially part of the Good Morning America correspondent team. Obviously I love my gig on All My Children, but it'll be kind of nice to focus on just these two, not jumping around killing myself."
Mathison adds,"I love my work as an actor but I think it [GMA] is an incredible show. I love the people I work with and I just step into the building and I learn from everyone there. That's the ulitmate for me."
