Roger Howarth Still On Contract with General Hospital

In the midst of learning that many of our favorite actors/characters have either dropped down to recurring, or are down right leaving the show, it is very easy to inform fans that is not the case with Roger. After today’s episode, many fans were worried that Howarth, along with Kelly Thiebaud (Dr. Britt Westbourne aka The Britch), John J. York (Mac Scorpio), and Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix DuBois), would also be making himself scarce and leaving General Hospital.

For the record, Roger Howarth is not leaving General Hospital in his role as Franco, he also has not dropped to recurring. He is still on contract with General Hospital, according to Executive Producer, Frank Valentini. Roger Howarth will be taping for his Prime Time role as Mason Bridge on the CW’s ‘The Flash’ during General Hospital’s hiatus. In a quote from Valentini regarding Roger’s new project, he states, “We are thrilled for Roger and this opportunity. Fans can rest assure he is not off the show, as the timing for this role worked out so that he can shoot during our current “GH” hiatus.”

Share this post if you are relieved that Roger Howarth will continue on GH in the role of the psychotic and disturbed, Franco.

Roger Howarth Leaving General Hospital?

General Hospital Blog has previously reported that General Hospital’s Roger Howarth (Franco) will be taking a new role on a TV show called ‘The Flash.’ He has landed a Prime Time recurring role on the CW and will be playing Mason Bridge.

Since his new role is recurring, that leaves is status with General Hospital uncertain. Many GH actors have been dropped down to recurring status as of late, and Roger Howarth just might be another one of them. There has not been confirmation on whether or not Roger Howarth will be leaving his role of Franco altogether, or if he will be taking some time off to be on set of the CW’s ‘The Flash.’
