General Hospital star Roger Howarth will return to One Life to Live to reprise the role of Todd Manning, but contrary to erroneous reports, it won’t be permanent.

The dust has finally settled, the battle appears to be over, and the outcome appears, at least for now, to be headed for the best possible outcome in the clash between Prospect Park and ABC.  Jamey Giddens of Daytime Confidential reports Howarth will temporarily exit ABC’s lone soap to help re-launch the online version of One Life to Live this spring, after which he will return to General Hospital. The Emmy winning actor is expected to film for at least four weeks.

While there has been nothing new to report regarding the status of Kristen Alderson (Starr) or Michael Easton (John), Soaps in Depth reports Prospect Park only wants the actors for four weeks to help get the show off the ground.

In other One Life to Live news it’s been confirmed that Patrick J. Gibbons will be returning to the soap in the role of Sam Manning! While over at All My Children, Sonia Blangiardo has been named supervising producer! Blangiardo’s credits include producing All My Children, As the World Turns; directing various other soaps and creating her own web series, Tainted Dreams.

Stay tuned to TVSource Magazine as these stories continue to develop as we inch ever closer to the returns of One Life to Live and All My Children.

  1. Sounds good to me. Hope it does work out to everyone’s satisfaction.

  2. Oh and glad to hear that Patrick is back!

  3. I’m glad to here that RH will be at the launch of OLTL and the returning to GH. This is probably the best possible outcome to this. I’m curious why we haven’t heard anything about ME and KA yet. I’m not sure why they need Starr really because her story was resolved at the end of OLTL. John’s story line is a bit stickier than that though.
