Sam was shocked when she found out that Drew was alive on GENERAL HOSPITAL and when her ex returned to Port Charles, he found himself the third wheel given that she had moved on and started a new relationship with Dante. And taking over the role of Drew Cain from Billy Miller, Cameron Mathison was excited to work with both Kelly Monaco and Dominic Zamprogna. “I love both of those guys,” he declared to Soap Opera Digest. “I like them a lot together, too.”
But while Mathison may be a fan of the Dante and Sam pairing, how does Drew feel about seeing her with another man? Does he miss the woman he shared his life with and want her back? ”There are definitely feelings there,” the actor admitted. “I’m not going to say there aren’t feelings. But Dante’s an amazing guy and Drew knows that and just wants the best for her.”
Even if Drew doesn’t try to rekindle his relationship with Sam, he’ll still be connected to her forever because of their daughter, Scout. Which is just fine by Mathison because it means he’ll still get the chance to work with Monaco. “Working with Kel has been amazing,” he enthused. “I don’t think it could be going any better. We’ve known each other a long time but never really worked together. I think we once hosted something at Super Soap Weekend or maybe it was something with DANCING WITH THE STARS.
“Working with Kel, I feel like there’s really good chemistry,” Mathison continued. “She’s fun, she’s playful, she’ll surprise me in the scenes. She had really good chemistry, obviously, with Billy, but I feel like it’s a good dynamic and I really get the sense that it’s different from what Sam has with Dante, and that’s important.”
So whether Drew explores romance with someone new or decides to try and steal Sam away from Dante, one thing’s for sure — Mathison will have a blast either way. “He’s got the adventure side, the Navy SEAL side, the tender side with his daughter, the history with Sam,” the actor said of his alter go. “There’s so much to it that makes it really exciting for me.”
