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.
