Speaking to UK publication Digital Spy, Cameron shared new details about his dramatic departure and revealed he would have love to continue on the show.
"I was happy at the beginning that it was going to be a short run, then about ten weeks in, I wanted to stay because it's so good. I was like: 'Do I have to die? Can we find a cure?' It was bittersweet," Cameron admitted.
Cameron, who is married to former model Alison Brahe with whom he shares three children (Lotus, 24 River, 20 and Bodhi, 14), also said the storyline hit close to home due to the age of his on-screen son Ryder.
"In real life, I have a son who's about the same age as Ryder. I innately had that love for Ryder because I have that for my son in real life. There was a lot of feeling in the scenes,” Cameron said.
"Evan knows he's on borrowed time. He doesn't know when he's going to die or what it's going to be like. It scares him, but he needs to go through it and accept it. It was a beautiful role to play."
In a previous interview with New Idea, Cameron praised the plot as “very emotional and lovely piece of work to get into.”
He added that his talented co-stars made the acting process relatively easy for him.
“It was difficult – but it was not difficult. And to be sitting there with Georgie Parker on the other side was just lovely,” he said.
