‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Franco’s Dead – Who Will Roger Howarth Play Next?

General Hospital spoilers wonder what is in store for Roger Howarth and who he will play next now that Franco Baldwin is dead on GH. Roger’s next storyline may blow fan’s minds, suggest ABC soap opera spoilers.

General Hospital Spoilers: Story of Franco Baldwin Comes to an End

GH spoilers know it’s the end of the line for Franco Baldwin. No doubt, “Friz” fans are crushed. Franco’s wife, Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst), is beside herself. And her oldest son Cameron Webber (William Lipton), is distraught as well. Cameron recently saw Franco Baldwin’s body in the morgue.

It seems certain that Franco is, in fact, dead. So, that scene may rule out any chance of Franco Baldwin faking his death. Of course, there’s always a possibility Franco will come back. General Hospital is famous for resurrections. But, it seems likely that Franco’s time is up.

However, Roger Howarth has made it clear that he is not leaving General Hospital. He is on a short break. Then he will return as a mystery character. Of course, this has viewers wracking their brains as to which character Roger will take on next.

Who Will Roger Howarth Be Now on GH?

General Hospital spoilers have a few ideas as to who Roger Howarth could come back as. A GH leaker hints that Kim Nero (last played by Tamara Braun) and Drew Cain (originated by Billy Miller) will return. However, they will be recast says our source. Frank Valentini needs to clean up the cast budget, reportedly.

So, there might be more actors leaving General Hospital from now until September due to budget restraints. The insider says Drew and crazy Kim will be unknown actors. The soap needs to stay under budget and can’t afford big-name actors. So, Drew and Kim, as well as others, could get new faces.

This is similar to the Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) recast on General Hospital. Also, Roger might reprise his role as Todd Manning from One Life to Live. Or he could play Lucky Spencer (last-Jonathan Jackson). Franco may even have a twin that Roger could pop up as. GH loves twin twists.

It could be they’ll have Roger Howarth pick up playing Drew because he already played him when Drew’s memories took over Franco. So, it would be less of a shift to a prior role than a recast if that happens. Soon, there may be a storyline surrounding Kim and her new baby, suggest General Hospital spoilers.

Drew Cain May Return on General Hospital

Our reliable GH source says that Kim is back soon, and she is the next big “villain” umbrella story. Fans may recall that when Julian Jerome (William deVry) was on the run on General Hospital, he went to Kim’s apartment. Then, it came out that Kim has a son named Andy. Surely, it seems the child belongs to Drew.

Also, Drew’s head is a mess again, thanks to Kim. So, there are lots to explore there promise General Hospital spoilers. And Drew seems to be the best choice for Roger Howarth’s next role. The leaker also said recast Kim could be the next chief of staff after Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud).

So, Britt may be part of the cast cuts as well. Clearly, there are many shake-ups ahead on General Hospital, and we may learn more about Drew along the way. It’s sure to be interesting to see what will be Roger Howarth’s new character now that he’s done portraying Franco Baldwin on the ABC soap.
