Cam’s presence slowly faded 

Cameron, the son of Elizabeth Webber and Zander Smith(Chad Brannon), has been played by Michael Leone since 2013.

Although he was adored by fans, his storylines have slowly begun to dry up after his brother, Jake Webber ( Hudson West), returned from the dead. His cousin and girlfriend moved away and Josslyn Jacks, his longtime friend, went off to high school without him. So there was nothing left for Cam to do except grow up.

According to GH Spoilers, Soaps in Depth, McWatt, is a newcomer to the Soap World. However, his resume includes performances in movie shorts such as Origin X, My Two Left Feet, and Heaven’s Gate.

McWatt’s experience will hopefully help him give Cam the edge that he needs to become relevant once again. He even has the potential to turn the head of Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy). After all, she did profess her love for him just three short years ago. Is Joss headed for a love triangle?

GH did the right thing by finally aging Cameron

It is good to see General Hospital right what many fans have felt was wrong since the character of Josslyn Jacks is supposed to be younger than Cam. The aging of this character will also change relationships across the board, especially since rumors suggest that he may portray a bad boy image.

Trouble for Oscar?

This will be in direct contrast to Joss’ current boyfriend, Oscar Nero (Garren Stitt) Since Joss is looking for a distraction from her current family situation, Cam may be the exact kind of trouble that she is looking for. It will also be entertaining to see the vibrations that a teenage son can make in Liz and Franco’s relationship? Will it be tremors or a full-blown earthquake?

Will other GH kids be Soras’d too?

There are many roads that GH can take with Cade McWatt at the wheel. GH fans welcome this needed change, however, it does spark concern for the other young characters like Emma(Brooklyn Rae Silzer) and Spencer(Nicolas Bechtel) and the beloved actors who portray them.

Cade McWatt has the potential for long-term growth in the role of Cameron Spencer and could boost ratings among younger viewers! The aging of Michael Corinthos(Chad Duell) has bolded well over the years for that character and the same is possible for Cam.
