Alexa Havings may have been replaced by Amanda Baker on All My Children, but the actress still has at least one show she's watching: Dancing with the Stars.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

Ryan Lavery: You want to tell me what the hell you were trying to pull out there?
Kendall Hart Cambias: Did you see Babe? Did you just see what she did? She has the nerve to offer a consolation prize, honorary mommy? What the hell is that? I mean, what could Bianca possibly do with that? Sit and watch Babe be the mother that Bianca will never get to be? It's stupid. It reeks.
Ryan Lavery: Babe was just trying to help.
Kendall Hart Cambias: No, Babe was trying to cover her own butt and make herself look good. She was trying to show what a big heart she has so no one will know what a liar she really is.
Ryan Lavery: What? Where do you get this stuff?
Kendall Hart Cambias: Oh, please don't tell me you can't see it, Ryan, come on. Babe is all about playing the bimbo matriarch of the Chandler clan. When really she a selfish, lying, stupid little bitch.

Erica Kane: You slept with Ryan's brother before you stole the company out from under him?
Kendall Hart Cambias: No, no, I didn't steal it, I didn't steal it. Adam and J.R. did. Ok, but here's the kicker - Ryan tried to convince me earlier today that he's completely over me for good, which, of course, that can't be. I mean, it's impossible, and we are going to prove that. And you know what's so great about you and I doing this together is that you hate Greenlee just as much as I do, so it's perfect! Plus, mother, you are the queen of creativity. You're so creative. I mean, the truth is i'm running out of ideas, but the two of us putting our heads together could be so amazing!
Erica Kane: Kendall, you have to stop. You're talking like a crazy person.
