reblogged from RCR article found here

In case you’ve missed it, hunky, sometimes shirtless, Cameron Mathison, aka Ryan Lavery from All My Children to millions of fans, is starring in the new ABC Family movie “Holidaze” with Jennie Garth tonight. We talked to Cameron about his role, love, Jennie and what he wants for Christmas… so be sure to tell Santa when you see him in the mall that you know what he wants, and he’s been “nice.”

About Holidaze

Jennie Garth (“Beverly Hills, 90210,” “Dancing with the Stars”) and Cameron Mathison (“Dancing with the Stars,” “All My Children,” “Good Morning America”) prove you can go home again, in the all new ABC Family original movie “Holidaze,” premiering Sunday, December 8 (8:00 – 10:00pm ET/PT).

Our Interview with Cameron

The morning we interviewed Cameron, he was on “elf” duty for ABC’s Good Morning America, delivering a new car to a deserving winner of their “Great Car Giveaway” and like many of us out there – we cried seeing the joy that was on the mom-to-be’s face and how truly authentic and happy Cameron was to be the one to give it to her. Which is the best thing we got from our interview, Cameron is a super awesome family man and a versatile actor.

This movie sounds like it could be a new twist to “Groundhog Day” for Christmas where a twist of fate could change how the love of your life remains in your world or not.

Cameron tells us he enjoyed exploring being a character that has a childhood sweetheart and the nuances that it brings including butting heads. He told us he had a high school teacher who would do exercises where you would put yourself in an alternate universe and think about the “what if’s” but it isn’t one of the things that he spends time thinking about, he’s very happy in the life he has “for real.”

Why this movie?

Cameron’s a big Jennie Garth fan and was excited to be working with her on this movie. He liked his character
“Carter” as he is a “good guy” with values and knows what he wants in life. His character likes living in a small town and so does Cameron, although he lives in LA, it’s more LA County being he’s lives in a smaller community in the mountains that surround LA.

Cameron also tells us that  he likes how the underlying theme of this movie is about how society and life in general pull you into a fast pace, pushing you to get a better job and climb the corporate ladder and how his character is the polar opposite, one that values community, is grounded and connected to those around him.

Personally speaking, Cameron likes the contrast. He prefers to focus on balance in his life and getting to more meaningful aspects of life – getting off the freeway and slowing down.

Favorite Holiday

Cameron’s favorite holiday is Christmas, he tells us that his family loves to decorate their home and it is part of the traditions they have created from Thanksgiving dinners to ice skating to reading the kids their favorite stories. He tells us they are The Happy Prince, The Gift of the Magi and The Night Before Christmas.

…with that said, he tells us his favorite part of Christmas is their tradition of spending time together as a family and opening presents (from youngest to oldest) and seeing his children’s excitement to see what Santa has brought them.

What Can Santa Bring Cameron for Christmas?

That’s easy – it rolled off his tongue like he wrote a “dear Santa” letter and sent it off the week before… a wireless power drill. Tweet to Cameron about this interview and how much you hope he gets what he wants for Christmas. Here’s his twitter link: https://twitter.com/CameronMathison
