ALL MY CHILDREN-CAMERON MATHISON portrays "Ryan" on "ALL MY CHILDREN."

If you’re a fan of daytime dramas you’ve probably also notice the Cheer commercial that pokes a bit of good fun at the industry while hocking their product.

But, did you take a good look at the guy who comes to the rescue of the dingy laundry? It’s Cameron Mathison, who has played Ryan Lavery on All My Children for over a decade.

Mathison knew he wanted to do the campaign the minute he read the script and realized he’d be the soap star, playing a soap star, selling soap. And Mathison tells us he’s gotten a whole new group of people who recognize him now.

All My Children airs Monday through Friday
