When word had it that Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery, “All My Children”) had been spotted on the set of CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” in late April, the rumor mill immediately lit up with speculation that the actor had secretly met with show producers and had signed on to portray the contract role of Adam Newman (previously portrayed by Michael Muhney). Earlier today, Mathison took to Twitter to clear up said rumors while visiting Israel for a friend’s wedding.

“Just to clear up some rumors… There is absolutely NO indication that I am going to ‘Y&R’ to play Adam Newman,” Mathison tweeted. He added, “Thanks for all the support tho.”

During Mathison’s April visit to the CBS Television City Studios, where “Y&R” is filmed, the actor ran into former on screen “AMC” love interest Melissa Claire Egan (ex-Annie Lavery; currently portraying Chelsea Newman on “Y&R”) and Christian Le Blanc (Michael Baldwin) in the hallway. The trio ended up posing for pictures.

More recently, Mathison interviewed another former “AMC” co-star, Cady McClain (ex-Dixie Cooney; currently portraying Kelly Andrews on “Y&R”), for a segment that aired on “Entertainment Tonight.”
