I also missed being part of a little acting troupe family.”

General Hospital spoilers reveal Josh then reached out to Frank Valentini, his former boss at One Life To Live, expressing interest in working at GH. His contact with GH’s Executive Producer was well accepted. Josh Kelly described his conversation with Valentini. He said, “He was like, ‘Are you serious?

General Hospital spoilers indicate there is a colorful future for Kelly’s role as Cody Bell. He admits he is excited to be on contract with the iconic daytime drama. He reflected on his time at OLTL, and explained that he is happy to fulfill a contact since his previous contract with the ABC’s cancelled soap was cut short.

General Hospital News: Austin To The Rescue! Welcome Back, Roger Howarth

The role of Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth), played by OLTL and GH’s, Roger Howarth, came to an abrupt and unexpected end when he was killed by Poet Charles super villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

General Hospital news reports confirmed that although the character, Franco Baldwin, was indeed killed with no chance of resurrection, or was also confirmed that Baldwin’s portrayer, Roger Howarth, was exiting General Hospital only temporarily.

General Hospital rumors speculated the return of Howarth to possibly resurface the OLTL and GH character persona, Todd Manning. Those GH rumors were later squashed, revealing that TPTB did not want to bring Manning back on the canvas since his character was involved in the rape storyline surrounding Marty Saybrooke (Susan Haskell). Howarth also stepped into the role of Franco Baldwin after actor James Franco played the part which also involved a dark side, and alleged rape.

General Hospital spoilers finally reveal the identity of Howarth new role on GH, as his return debut aired on May 27th. Roger is now playing the role of a doctor named, Austin. So far he has delivered Maxie Jones’s (Kirsten Storms), baby in the woods. Austin seems much different than Franco. We don’t know much about him yet, but from the first impression he gave, there seems to be a lot more light, as opposed to the dark past Franco had.

How do you feel about Roger’s new role? Could there be a future for Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) with a man who looks just like her late husband?

Soap Opera News: Breaking! “All My Children” Prime Time Revival

For decades, ABC Network was the home for three major Soap Operas that became household names in America. Now, ABC is down to one daytime drama, General Hospital. On September 2nd, 2013, ABC’s All My Children came to an end after One Life To Live left the air on January 13th, 2012.

Major news has just been announced regarding the revival of the iconic Daytime Drama, All My Children. Soap opera news reports a new development in the works that will have General Hospital, All My Children, and One Life To Live fans rejoicing. The soap opera genre has been surviving off of one lasting show, as GH is in its 57th on air.

All My Children’s Kelly Ripa and husband, Mark Consuelos are developing a prime time version of the drama and will be titled after the infamous town, “Pine Valley.” Celebrity news reports this show is in the early stages of development.

After winning back the rights to the characters names from Prospect Studios, ABC now owns the rights to both AMC as well as OLTL. Rumors of their revival have bounced around throughout the last 7 years, and some projects were developed for web series audience, however, nothing really took off.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos head up production for this new prime time project, but there is no word on whether or not they will appear as actors in the new series. In the 1990s, Ripa and Consuelos had large roles on AMC as Hayley Vaughan and Mateo Santos.

This is extremely exciting news for AMC and soap opera fans in general. When AMC and OLTL came to an end, many fans had a difficult time adjusting to life without this staple as part of their day. Now we have the chance to experience all the drama and excitement again!
