Roger Howarth Not Done on GH – But Franco Could Be

General Hospital spoilers confirm Roger Howarth will not be leaving the sudser permanently. He is on hiatus for a short time, but then he will return. Of course, the powers that be are keeping their plans for Roger under wraps. So, he may or may not play Franco again.

But, the actor recently spoke out that’s he’s very excited about what’s next. And he has complete faith in the writers as he told Soap Digest. During his break from General Hospital, Roger is raising money for Feeding America’s worthy cause.

Roger is doing Cameo videos and donating 100% of the proceeds to the foundation. So, while he will be absent from the screen, Roger can still connect with fans and make a difference simultaneously. When he does return to General Hospital, we may be blown away by what’s in store. Will it be Franco Baldwin though?

“Dranco” May Come Back on General Hospital

GH spoilers suspect Roger Howarth could make a return as Drew Cain (originally Billy Miller). General Hospital is known for swapping actor’s characters. Remember, Michael Easton is in his fifth role. First, he was Caleb Morely, the vampire that originated on the spin-off Port Charles. He was also Caleb’s good “twin”, the priest named Michael.

Then, he was John McBain and later, Silas Clay. Now, of course, he’s Hamilton Finn. So, it’s entirely possible that Franco Baldwin can be dead, but Roger will reprise a different role. Then again, Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) is sure to be horrified by Franco’s death. So, Dr. O may try to revive Franco with some hinky science.

But, if the writers choose to make Franco another character, he could become “Dranco” again in a weird twist. This time around, Drew may completely take over again with no hope of Franco Baldwin coming back. If they bring him back as Drew, they could still pair him with Elizabeth, hint General Hospital spoilers.

However, it was recently revealed that Kim Nero (Tamara Braun) has a baby whose name is Andy. And in the video “Drew” left for Franco, he referred to himself as Andy. So, there’s a strong possibility Kim has his baby, and she may return as well for a new storyline with Drew on GH. There are some major shockers ahead for Franco Baldwin and his family, and it’s sure to blow fan’s minds.
