Roger Howarth, Kristen Alderson and Michael Easton Return to General Hospital May 10!



Set your DVR's for May 10, General Hospital fans.  Roger Howarth, Kristen Alderson and Michael Easton will return to the ABC soap the Friday before Mother’s Day!

As previously reported, all three actors will be playing new characters. Look for the former Llanview Three to be part of a big mystery once they return to Port Charles.

    You know… I’m not excited about this. I think the show has improved dramatically since Cartini has had to focus on other characters instead of trying to make these three fit into GH.

    I enjoyed the crossover of the characters and the continuation of Llanview. I am, however, not thrilled with bringing these three back as “new characters” just to have them as actors on the show. There are enough characters on the show now to keep things going without these three. Not saying I don’t like them as actors, I just am not thrilled with this resolution to the way Prospect Park so very poorly handled this situation. I would much prefer to see the characters back because they had good story and interaction with the other PC residents. The loss of the Heather/Todd situation is disheartening as well.

    Not very excited about this, either.

    The show has been outstanding these past few weeks, and a part of it has been that these people have been away. I don’t dislike these actors, but they are not needed on the show. And now that we know they will come back as totally new characters, and their old characters aren’t even allowed to be mention, how on earth can this work? Either people will still see them as Todd, Starr & John, or if they don’t, it means they will have to act in such a different way than before, that it will just seem weird and cartoonish.

    At least it would be better if there was more time in between, to forget about the Llanview characters. And preferably, that they wouldn’t have to come back all at the same time.

    They’re under contract, so they have to do something with them, but I have no interest in seeing them as other characters. When “Michael’s girlfriend” dumped him by phone the other day, I said to myself that I’m probably not going to keep watching much longer. Once the 50th anniversary dies down, I doubt that I’ll have much interest in watching anymore.

    Kristen Alderson is NOT needed on the show at all.

    like, for real-real.

    Roger had great chem & fun scenes with Laura Wright so i’d keep him. Micheal and Kelly were sizzling in their’s too so that’s a no-brainer.

    i’m struggling to understand why CarTini keep ramming Kristen Alderson down out throats just because she’s their favorite!?!?!?!?!

    With the current cast now especially all the vets that are back I don’t see why Cartini feel it’s necessary to have these three on the show, they haven’t been on for weeks and the show is still entertaining and fun too watch. However it will be interesting to see how Cartini introduce their new characters to the canvas and if they’ll pair them back up with the characters their OLTL characters were paired with…

    These three actors have a contract with ABC. FV and RC have to use them in one way or another. If they want to or not.

    I don’t really like the idea of them playing other characters nor do I think that they need to be on GH. Don’t get the appeal. Especially since they are not returning as Todd, Starr and John.

    Anyway, since they are returning … I’d like for Roger Howarth to be a Tom Hardy recast. Would be nice to have another Hardy on the canvas.
    Alderson should play Serena Baldwin. Don’t want her as a Quartermaine heir. I’m not a fan of the possibility of Franco’s daughter to show up anyway.
    And as for John … there was a rumor that he’s a relative to Stephen Clay or Caleb Morley. Well there you go.

    GH is the best its been in years. Why don’t we wait to see what happens before we declare these actors coming back as new characters disasters? I think there will be some adjustment, but it’s TV, I can adjust. ME is the only thing that makes Sam palatable for me. I think RH is a hoot, and has the acting skills to be whatever he wants–plus his change in character will stop the “he’s a rapist” cries on this board. KA is meh to me–but I liked her dynamic with Michael.

    I’m excited the Laura, Scotty and Lucy are staying. I think for the most part RC is a brilliant writer and so I’m looking forward to what they do with these actors.

    The deal with the Llanview 3 is that they are under contract and ABC is not going to pay them to do nothing! I think soap fans should adopt the mindset – “See how it plays out before we start bitching!” I’m interested to see what the mystery will be that surrounds the arrival of these three characters.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing RH as Tom Hardy, doesn’t that tie him to Elizabeth and puts RH in Rebecca’s orbit which he wasn’t in as Todd on GH.

    John will be someone related to Caleb Morley.
    Starr can dye her hair dark and be Lauren Frank.
    Todd can wear black, grow his hair and slick it back an be Valentin Cassadine.

    However, if they are ALL a part of one mystery, it is unlikely…

    Yep. I don’t get it either.

    I love ME, but I haven’t missed RH or KA. I liked Todd until took away his edge, gave us an exhausting stream of his one-liners (I appreciate RH’s sense of humor, but in moderation), and then paired him with Carly. Hopefully, RH’s new character will be darker.

    I get they are under contract to ABC but they are also no longer Todd, Starr and John once they leave PP. I’m keep wondering if PP will recast those roles or will the characters just wander off stage on the new OLTL and never be seen again.

    Michael Easton’s new character could be Helena’s son and still be considered a part of the Cassadine clan. He wouldn’t be related to Sam in that case.

    I dont like any of it either, but I also do wonder if any of them ever considered that their contracts will be renewed after they are up. Especially KA. She’s been Starr since she was 6 and has never played another roll. GH is big time stuff. If she dosent cut it she’s out and Starr is recast. just thinking about it gives me the sweats. I hope she does good. The other two are seasoned actors, but KA, well I hope it works for her.

    GORD, what do you mean you are going to stop watching. What will you watch so I can still hang with you. Y&r is really good. Check that one out.

    I agree that we need to see what happens before complaining, but then, what fun would that be?;) Kristen’s Starr is very much meh to me, but I did like her with Michael at the end(probably because he has always been meh to me too). Roger as Tom Hardy wouldn’t work for me because Tom Hardy was squeeky clean and I love Roger as a character that we love to hate what he does but love how he does it. I also love Sam with Michael Easten because he makes her interesting. I have been over her for ages and Michael gives her a spark that Steve Burton could never accomplish(imo).Of course he never sparked period even though he was purty.
    I am loving GH now. I have watched since the summer of “76 and like all fans was horrified with how it had gone downhill. I am enjoying all of it!!!! Once again it’s “must-see” and I am thrilled!!!

    i watched RC and FV on OLTL and love what they have done with GH. i agree with Lucy D in saying that i am going to wait and see what they do before i judge anything. it will be hard to see RH in another role because he made Todd his own and i’m afraid that if he is in another role that he won’t be as awesome. i don’t really get all of the hate with KA – i think that she had great chemistry with CD. i hope that she’s not Franco’s kid because then she and Michael can’t be together. i hope that ME is not a Cassadine because then he can’t be with Sam. anyway, i am just going to wait and see what happens because if i know RC he has something pretty big planned with this and we may end up eating our words.

    “I also love Sam with Michael Easten because he makes her interesting.

Completely agree with this statement. Wasn’t a big Sam fan (and never a Jason fan) until John/ME came around. I loved McBam so much that I watched 300+ clips from PC to see them as Caleb/Livvie. Amazing. I’m so sad I never watched that show. Ahead of it’s time.

    Starr is probably the one I could leave as well, but she’s cute with Michael. It was nice to see one healthy couple, lol.

    @rlshel1015 — Rule #1, you just DO NOT insert Kristen Alderson into a scene with legendary Genie, with her big Reunion Part II scene w/her daughter. Eee gads. I threw a whole six pack at my screen the day that happened. There are a million reasons to detest the character of Starr on GH. This is nothing personal against the actress. But anyone should be able to see that it was overkill, making her the 20 year old a club owner, singer, part time chemist — ENOUGH already. Even the much-hated Sobrina only has ONE career! LOL

    Then we also had them walking down memory lane of their barely 1 year anniversary, which ate up an entire episode, during a crucial period of a sweeps month at that, IIRC. GH has a wealth of riches right now, and she ain’t one of them!

    I am a little surprised that they couldn’t at least keep RH as Todd considering he did agree to go back and help them kick off OLTL online.

    I still believe they could have just as easily kept John as John, change his last name and not mention his back story anymore. I don’t get why this isn’t an option. John Smith (easy enough).

    Howarth definitely has the looks to be a Cassadine.

    We know KA will either be Lauren Frank or Serena Baldwin.

    If you think about it, if Easton were to be playing a Cassadine — being Helena’s son; he would be related to Sam since she is a Cassadine. Alexis is her mother.

    I’m enjoying the show most when it focuses on the GH characters that have been hanging around gasping for air away from the (crossovers and newbie) air hogs. I really hoped it would be “less of these three” also resurrected drive by guest appearances by vets of the past who are only brought on for a holla’

    Yes its great to revisit old storylines with vets but lets get into some deep dramatic storylines. And stop inserting the Fav3 in scenes they’re not needed in like Starr unnecessarily popping up in a scene between Laura and her daughter she wasn’t needed there and stuck out like a sore thumb.

    Thank you for saying this! I’ll be honest. This “intrusion” into the Spencer mother/daughter reunion with GF and JMB tipped me over the edge with the character and pushed my resentment quotient with the actress to the boiling point… 0:)

    Kristen Alderson is to Cartini what Steve Burton is to JFP. I don’t get the fascination.

    In the history of daytime, it is not uncommon for head writers or producers to have some favorites or muses, if you will. Most famously, Martha Byrne has stated in a number of interviews that was was the muse of Douglas Marland. On GH, Genie Francis and many others (including 3 of the 4 Carlys!) have been in those positions as well.

    I believe that head writers and producers deserve some leeway to write for a couple of characters (Kate/Connie, Sabrina) and actors (Kelly Sullivan, Teresa Castillo) they have personal affection for when they are 1. delivering the creative/dramatic goods and 2. delivering solid ratings for the network on other fronts. Valentini & Carlivati are striving to produce one hell of an entertaining show day in and day out and have addressed the majority of the concerns and/or wishes that fans have been clamoring literally for years. So, I don’t mind indulging them.

    What’s seemingly not necessary and irritating to some viewers is entertaining and appreciated by others.

    @JBJ, — those are good point. I had no problemo indulging CarTini with the yearly prom events and musicals STARRing Starr — but that was my limit. Listen, she’s okay, and i totally put up with her and played good sport on OLTL. But they found excuses to insert her into over HALF of the stories on GH. At least half of PC doesn’t know Sobrina! (well they do now b/c of the Nurses’ Ball but i digress lol)

    Martha Byrne, ahem, excuse me…well first off, she was part of a ginormous supercouple, a little something called Lily and Holden, and was also a key part of Lucinda/Ivy story, starring 2 daytime heavyweights. Starr? Well i guess she was Dorian’s niece, but Cole and Starr were by no means ever a supercouple. Heck, they weren’t even memorable tweens!

    I have defended Kelly Sullivan many times on this thread; she’s a great actress and i think she and MoBe really enjoy working together.

    You’re right, i can’t expect perfection when they have done a great job of utilizing vets. I will wake up from my dream once Kawnie returns, along with the OLTL’ers, hopefully just to ride out their contracts…

    I like all 3 actors and I am perfectly fine with them coming back as new characters.
    With Lucy and Scott sticking around I could see KA cast as Serena. I doubt she would be cast as Franco’s daughter since that would remove her as a possible love interest for Michael. Besides I think Lauren is going to be more in the TJ, Molly, Rafe age range.

    Tying Roger Howarth to the Cassidine family would be a nice move just because Valentin is a character that is open to interpretation since we have never seen him.

    And ME should just be John McBain with a different name.

    I for one am on the fence about Kristin Alderson. The blahness of Starr could be because that is what the character calls for. KA has been playing Starr since she was 5 I think. She probably got in a rut playing the character. Playing a new character who is opposite of who Starr is could be great for her. If however KA plays the new character just like Starr or can’t handle playing the new character, it could mean the deathnail on her career and should be let go from GH. I will wait and see though.

    I mean for those of us who have watched OLTL with Starr, Todd and John, I think this is going to be so wierd to see them as different characters on a show they’ve been on now for a year. I remember Todd when Starr was born. I truly do believe that changing their characters on the same show is alot for us to wrap out heads around. They should have worked things out somehow with PP so it didnt have to come down to this. Whats this world coming to.

    Does this mean Audrey’s son, Tom Hardy? If I am remembering correctly, this would be Audrey’s son by Tom Baldwin … correct? Played by a tall blond guy in the late ’80′s and by Matt Ashford in the ’90′s?

    Or are people implying that RH would play her grandson, Tom Hardy, son of Tom and Simone? This Tom Hardy would be biracial.

    The past month has been mostly pure bliss without Easton, Alderson and Howarth. The show has been firing on all cylinders. There is no need to bring them back. If there is a need for new characters it would make sense to cast new actors. It is going to be too distracting seeing such established perfomers in new roles. I can’t imagine how the 70% of GH viewers who don’t go on blogs are going to handle these actors in new roles. I can already see my grandmother and mom totally confused.

    PLEASE don’t mention Alderson in the same sentence as Genie Francis and Martha Byrne. I know there are fans of Alderson’s on this site but you have to admit that Alderson at 21 doesn’t hold a candle to Francis or Byrne at those ages. Genie and Martha could act! Alderson by 21 played her role a lot longer than Byrne or Francis but sadly the girl never improved her acting.

    I wish i understood the legal side of the equation a little better – for the last year todd manning at offices in the mC. couldnt they have him walk in and the porter says Mr. Banning, we werent expecting you. Its good to see you again. He walks in to his office and on the wall is a big sign BE. Heck if they find it confusing, frank could do a preair one minute segment saying as you may know PP is now airing new episodes of Oltl which features the characters of todd starr and john. given that those shows may choose to feature story around these three characters, we at gh have released those characters back to pp BUT out of respect to our audience and the stories we already had in the works, we want to play out our vision to the end. As a result, you will now see three familiar faces playing the roles of todd and starr banning and john mccain. I hope you will give us a little latitude as we endeavor to entertain. thank you. fade to the opening credit and the story will pick up where it left off. granny will get it (look at the dopplegangers and back from the dead situations grannies have accepted on these shows for decades without confusion) and onliners will understand the wrangling. Is there some legal aspect im not seeing here.

    I keep asking myself why they feel the need to do this. Nothing against the actors, but I don’t see the need to force them on the canvas. As mentioned before, just because they are on contract doesn’t mean they can’t be let go like several other actors in the past.

    I will reserve my final judgement for when I see their characters but at this point I am not feeling too optimistic.

    Before there was a “Lily and Holden” there was just Lily, first played by Lucy Deakins (when the young pre-teen super couple of the show was Lily and Dustin!) and then SORASED to Martha Bryne.

    Once Martha took over the role, Bryne got the kind of comparative airtime that would make many of today’s viewers heads spin as “propping” and “pimping,” clearly and heavily tilted because of the new actress playing the part. All of that (convoluted) backstory involving Lucinda & Iva came later as Marland built the Lily/Holden supercouple (I remember that first time Lily (with Dustin!) got all twitterpated the first time she saw Holden at the barn! LOL!) and Marland made her the show’s young heroine.

    All of that happened after Byrne took over the role and became Marland’s “muse.”

    @EET….PP has the rights to the character’s names and history. Even if the names were changed they couldn’t reference Llanview, Todd & Starr couldn’t have the same relationship, Todd couldn’t have the scar, John couldn’t be a brooding cop that wears all black.

    It will be interesting to see if Alderson can pull off another character since she has been Starr since she was 6 years old. I sure hope she doesn’t end up being related to Franco in any way, shape, or form. Franco needs to be totally wiped from the GH canvas. Maybe Alderson could be AJ’s daughter with Niki Langston.

    I’d like a story that involves infighting among the Cassadines which expands the family and its history.

    Don’t know why it will be so hard to see these “ACTORS” playing different calls. It’s a “FICTIONAL” TV SHOW. people get replaced all the time. Some actors do come back on the same show playing someone different. If I’m not mistaken, I think Anthony Geary did.

    I agree! Franco definetly needs to be wiped off the GH Canvas completely , with his clanging monkey,(engradypind,- you said it so well). JPF worship of James Franco, just because he was a movie star, almost ruined GH. Glad both are gone. I would rather see KA as Scotty’s daughter. I loved Starr when she was a little kid on OLTL and was perfect as Todd’s bratty little girl (like father like daughter). But as she got older, well, her acting wasn’t as good. I’m curious to see her in a new part and very curious to see who Roger H and Micheal E will play (I like them both. I am so used to Roger as Todd so I’ll miss that character but I’m sure Roger will play another off-beat role. Micheal E has played a number of different characters so I’m sure he’ll do good in a new role.

    NY Sam what I dont get is this – Detective john mcbainss backstory is that he has a child and a baby mama in llanview pa and she is blocking him from custody. A custody dispute is no more HIS back story than it is rics or jaxs or sonnys all of whom went through the same. His back story isn’t the fact that hes a cop because so too are dante anna and lucky. its the sum total of the details. So why cant cop john McCain have an exwife in newtown new York whos battling him for custody over their three year old daughter lisa. refer to the baby, the ex, the town as the child, her and home until the audience understands that john mcbain is now john mmcain and then start with the town the kids name and the ex.

If you are excited to see liz in the middle of a triangle, dont you think it would be better that carly and sam have todd and john (or the actors) to pair with them? If they didnt bring them back or the returns fail, i would bet the farm that quiz would end in the blink of the eye and carly/aj would be having revenge/hate sex before you could say what the he*&. Just sayin.

    Why not simply pair ME with LW and RH with KeMo? GH needs more men so that the women aren’t stuck with the same pairings over and over.

    i wouldnt mind seeing that chem tested but honestly the kelly/michael chem would be wasted. those two together just steam up the screen. my point is though that we need the men and you are exactly right, you dont want the characters stuck with certain pairings because they are related to too many people or because the guys that might work have already boinked the mom or the sibling or the cousin and it starts to get incestuous. I see that as way more needed on the canvas compared to yet another late 30s early to mid 40s female. Id rather keep lucy and or laura and or skye on the canvas and id rather see story for alexis before i want a random other character brought on, no matter how talented MW might be.

    I just don’t understand why Prospect Park couldn’t just release them from their contract and allow them to go to GH. It would have been so much better! Kristen Alderson has been playing Starr Manning since 1998 when she was just 7 years old! It’s crazy to make her, Roger Howarth (who’s played Todd Manning since 1993) and Michael Easton (who’s played John McBain since 2003) to be entirely new characters. I am a OLTL and GH fan, and I don’t think it’s right. I pray that the new characters that they play are successful, blend well into the show and are new fan favs. Fingers Crossed!

    The three actors are under contract with ABC and not PP.

    Starr, Todd and McBain are OLTL characters, and should remain with that soap opera.

    I suspect GH fans would be ticked if they lost three of their popular characters to another soap opera or maybe not depending on the characters. :)
