Alexa Havings may have been replaced by Amanda Baker on All My Children, but the actress still has at least one show she's watching: Dancing with the Stars.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