General Hospital Spoilers: The Quartermaine Family Has A New Addition And We Don’t Mean Baby Bailey

There has been quite a mystery surrounding Roger Howarth’s new role on General Hospital. After killing of his character, Franco Baldwin, General Hospital news reports confirmed that actor Roger Howarth would be returning to the show as an entirely new character.

General Hospital spoilers reveal Dr. Austin Holt has roots here in Port Charles, as he is tied to a very prominent and powerful family. GH rumors indicate that Austin’s email regarding an ELQ board meeting is a key clue to Austin’s identity and background.

General Hospital rumors suggest that Austin Holt is in fact a Quartermaine. Making him the son of Jimmy Lee Holt, an illegitimate son of the late Edward Quartermaine.

GH fans radar went off in the May 17th episode when Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson) mentioned Jimmy Lee Holt as an example of how the Quartermaine family has survived many who have done before Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart). Because of this name drop, GH fans began to wonder if Austin would have some type of connection to Holt.

It turned out Austin is very interested I. Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and it’s no coincidence that his interest has to do with the fact that Michael is not only a Corinthos, but a true Quartermaine as well.

Does Austin have good intentions? GH news and spoilers disclosed that GH writers wanted Howarth’s new role to play a lighter, softer, character, as opposed to the dark and twisted early version of Franco Baldwin.
