Entertainment Weekly broke the news exclusively that former All My Children star Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery) will be joining the cast of ABC’s General Hospital as Andrew “Drew” Cain, last played by fan favorite actor Billy Miller.
Drew Cain is the long-lost son of the late Alan Quartermaine and Susan Moore, the identical twin brother of Jason Morgan (Steve Burton), whom an amnesiac Drew believed he was for a time. When Drew first arrived in Port Charles – post accident that resulted in facial reconstruction and a lost memory – he adopted the name Jake Doe, later romancing and becoming engaged to Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) who later ended up marrying Drew’s childhood best friend Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth).
After his relationship with Elizabeth blew up upon the reveal that he was Jason Morgan, while he believed he was his twin brother, Drew fell in love with and had a child with Samantha McCall-Morgan until the real Jason Morgan showed up alive and well.
After the demise of his relationship with Sam, Drew, who was also an ex-Navy Seal, concentrated on building a relationship with his recently discovered teenage son, Oscar Nero, who was battling cancer and ultimately died. While grieving for his son, Drew began researching his past, which he had no memories of thanks to a memory swapping performed by Andre Maddox and Peter August. Unfortunately, before the truth could be uncovered, Peter arranged for a plane that Drew was traveling on to disappear, and he was presumed dead in 2019.
Look for Cameron Mathison to make his debut on Monday, August 16, 2021. The Hallmark Home and Family revealed that he began filming July 9. As for what fans can expect to see, the actor teased that Drew is in trouble and will be reaching out to former flame Sam for help.
