Alexa Havins Picture
Alexa Havings may have been replaced by Amanda Baker on All My Children, but the actress still has at least one show she's watching: Dancing with the Stars.

And one contestant she's rooting for: former co-star Cameron Mathison.

Havins spoke with Soap Opera Digest about his chances:

Soap Opera Digest: What was your reaction when you found out Cameron would be competing?
Alexa Havins: I told him, ‘I am going to be front row, screaming for you.' He'll do so well. He has the best personality, and he's hilarious. His heart alone is going to win people over. Melissa Claire Egan and I were saying that the outtakes [alone] could win this for him. He has the best one-liners.

I think the most interesting part [of the show] is the dark horse you didn't think would be a good dancer. Somebody is going to emerge, and Cameron — we might be surprised! ‘Wait a minute, Casanova, where'd you learn how to dance?'

Digest: Do you think he's got a big enough fan base to pull this off?
Havins: It's not just ABC daytime fans, it's [all] daytime fans. A Passions viewer, or a Days of Our Lives or The Bold and the Beautiful viewer is going to respect the fact that he's one of our boys, he's a daytime actor. On top of that, I don't care who it is, [if anyone] watches him for two weeks, they're going to fall in love with him.

All My Children Quotes

Greenlee Smythe Lavery: Just - I tried to remember when we weren't stressed to the max. Our honeymoon may have been the best time ever. I was just hoping that maybe tonight we could feel like that for just a few hours, let you remember how much I love you, how happy I am that I'm your wife, just like that night.
Ryan Lavery: Come here.
Greenlee Smythe Lavery: What? What are you...
Ryan Lavery: I remember everything. I remember it was going to be the first time that we made love as husband and wife. And I remember thinking to myself that my bullet wound was easy compared to waiting to make love to you. I wanted you so bad. I want you now. I want you right now.

Ryan: Do you feel that?
Gillian: Your heartbeat.
Ryan: OUR heartbeat.
