Hallmark Actor: Cameron Mathison

Margaret Minnicks has been an online writer for many years. She writes about various topics including celebrities and entertainment.


Cameron Mathison was born on August 25, 1969, in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. He received a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec in 1993.

After graduating from college, Cameron began working as a model and getting assignments to do commercials in Canada, Europe, and the United States. That was the springboard for him to take acting classes.

Acting Before Being on the Hallmark Channel

In December 1997, Mathison got the role of playing Ryan Lavery on All My Children on ABC. He kept that job until 2011. Cameron must love acting in soap operas because in 2021, he began acting in another soap opera. He now has the role of Drew Cain on ABC's General Hospital.

Cameron was active in several other television shows before he began acting in Hallmark movies.
