In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Howarth revealed that he has not been let go from the show. Although he will be off screen for a period of time, Howarth is still very much a part of the GH family.
Howarth began on GH in 2012 in the One Life to Live role of Todd Manning. Soon afterwards, Todd was ushered offscreen and Franco Baldwin re-emerged. This switcharoo was directly connected to a lawsuit involving ABC and Prospect Park. In 2016, ABC won the rights to both All My Children and One Life to Live back from Prospect Park. No word yet on whether or not the adjudication of this lawsuit will play into Howarth’s return.
