Ever since Dr. Austin Gatlin-Holt came out of the woods, fans have been wondering what he was really after. What’s not in question, are the kudos earned by Austin’s portrayer, Roger Howarth.

Happy Birthday, Roger Howarth

And that’s because he was born on September 13, 1968, which means that this talented, fan-favorite actor is turning 53 years old today! Howarth made his stage debut at the age of seven, and he continued to pursue his love of performing well into his high school years.

However, he initially resisted acting as a profession. But after spending a semester studying political science at George Washington University, Howarth dropped out and enrolled in an intense acting program at the Eugene O’Neil Theatre Center in Connecticut.

Afterward, he obtained work on the CBS daytime drama Guiding Light. Then, he entered a nationwide talent search and won a role on Loving, a competing soap on the ABC network.

Howarth’s work as Kurt Winslow netted him the part of One Life to Live’s Todd Manning. Though initially a day-player, Howarth was eventually signed to a full-time contract and he remained at the soap (off-and-on) from 1992 to 2003.

Between 2003 and 2010, Howarth played legacy character Paul Ryan on As the World Turns. Subsequent to that, he returned to One Life to Live and reprised the Todd Manning part.

When OLTL was canceled, Howarth was hired to play Todd on sister serial General Hospital. After one year, a lawsuit forced Howarth to momentarily decamp from the show only to return as a new character: Franco Baldwin.

Outside of daytime dramas, Howarth is known for his work on series such as Diagnosis: Murder, Dawson’s Creek, Prey, and The Flash as well as feature films like Dream of Live and Destruction Los Angeles.

Howarth has been married to actress Cari Stahler since 1992. Together the couple has two children: Julian (a son, born in July 1992) and Langston (a daughter, born April 2002).

Roger Howarth Opens up About His New Role on GENERAL HOSPITAL

Viewers were shocked when Franco was killed off and surprised that Roger Howarth wasn’t leaving GENERAL HOSPITAL but returning as another character. And though fan speculation ran the gamut, the actor made his comeback in the May 27 episode as a brand-new character, a doctor named Austin! “I was straight-up terrified, 100 percent,” Howarth admitted to Soap Opera Digest of taking on a new role. “Excited and pleased and grateful — I love what I do and I was glad to get back to it — but there’s a certain amount of nervous energy that showed up.

“I can’t change the way I look so much,” he added. “So for this guy to be different, he has to speak differently and walk differently, and to be honest, I’ve had mixed success and it’s taken me a bit. I’m still figuring it out. But I really like the process of figuring it out.”

Howarth originally joined GH in March 2012 as his ONE LIFE TO LIVE character Todd Manning, but legal complications forced the soap to find him a new role in 2013, and they chose to have him take over as Franco, a character originally played by actor James Franco. The reformed serial killer proved popular with viewers, especially once Franco was paired with Rebecca Herbst’s Elizabeth, but the character was shockingly killed off in March 2021.

GH Austin Maxie

Although he admitted that it can be strange working with castmates he knows as they play characters that don’t know each other, Howarth is grateful for the opportunity to tackle this new challenge and was excited to get back to Port Charles. “I really like the people that I work with,” he declared. “It was lovely to see the crew. I really like what I do, and I’ve been doing it a long time, and it’s really nice for me to be this far into a career and still have a level of enthusiasm where I look forward to getting back to work when I’m away from work. It’s really nice. I’m really lucky.”

Since he’s only just begun playing Austin, he’s still finding his footing in the new role. “Even five or six weeks in, there are still things that I don’t know and still things that I’m trying to figure out,” Howarth admitted. “But what I do know for certain is that I like him. I hope the audience enjoys him, because there is some great story coming and it’s exciting to me.”

Keep watching GH to see who Austin really is and what storylines he finds himself mixed up in!

Howarth roger

On May 27, Roger Howarth — whose Franco was killed off in March — returned to the show in his latest guise, that of Austin, the doctor who delivered Maxie’s daughter.

The actor admits that playing Austin for the first time was daunting. “I was straight-up terrified, 100 percent,” he reports. “Excited and pleased and grateful — I love what I do and I was glad to get back to it — but there’s a certain amount of nervous energy that showed up. That guy showed up! But I don’t dislike that; I think that kind of excitement and anticipation and level of opening-night, jittery thing that happens is super-fun and when it shows up, I always just think that’s great. I have some tools to regulate that kind of energy, but I’m frequently nervous; coping with the stress of performing and being an actor is part of what comes with [the job].”

Howarth describes himself as still “in the approach” as he wraps his mind around his new character, the third he’s played (the first being his ONE LIFE TO LIVE alter ego, Todd Manning) since he joined the GH ranks in 2012. “Even five or six weeks in [to taping episodes as Austin], there are still things that I don’t know and still things that I’m trying to figure out,” he notes. “But what I do know for certain is that I like him. I hope the audience enjoys him, because there is some great story coming and it’s exciting to me.

“In terms of figuring it out,” he continues, “what’s been really kind of fun is that as soon as I think I have it figured out, I’m reminded that I just don’t. So there’s been some trial and error. I’m learning to juggle and sometimes I drop the ball. But I have a lot of support; [Co-Head Writers] Chris [Van Etten] and Dan [O’Connor] have a lot of great ideas and Frank [Valentini, executive producer] has chimed in with what he needs, and so for me, at the risk of overusing ‘juggling exercises’, I am trying to juggle a lot of different inputs and trying to stay on track and do what’s expected. And it’s been fun. It requires some concentration from me and different parts of my brain that I wasn’t using.”

Part of Howarth’s new assignment is to differentiate Austin from his previous GH roles. While he did change his hair-style before returning to the studio (“It’s the only one that I didn’t already cover with the other two people; it was the only one left. And I may or may not have done it myself”), he points out, “I can’t change the way I look so much. So for this guy to be different, he has to speak differently and walk differently and to be honest, I’ve had mixed success and it’s taken me a bit — I’m still kind of figuring it out. But I really like the process of figuring it out. I’m just really grateful that I’m getting the chance to try.”

As Austin, he finds himself “meeting” characters who were familiar to Franco. Observes Howarth, “In the life of the character I play, they’re all new faces, but it’s a big ask, I think, for Becky [Herbst, Elizabeth] and Michael [Easton, Finn] to have Elizabeth and Finn say, ‘Yeah, I don’t know who this person is.’ But that’s what the ask is.” As for his own approach to these run- ins, he says, “Every time [Austin] is kind of introduced into a new character circle, I feel a little thrown, because I don’t know how the character that I play deals with that particular other character…. Every time he walks into a room and there’s somebody that Austin hasn’t dealt with yet, I’ve got to start over. I get to start over 24 times!”

Prior to Howarth’s reintroduction, fan speculation about who he might play included talk of him reprising Todd — which the actor would have been cool with. “What would I say if I read in a script that Todd was there? I have nothing but incredibly positive things to say about my experience playing Todd and at this point, I would pretty much look forward to it; he’s a great character. That would be super-fun. But I’m glad that it’s not an either/or proposition, because right now I’m really having a lot of fun with what I’m doing.” He’s also aware that a contingent of viewers had hoped that reports of Franco’s death had been greatly exaggerated, and says, “I’m just pleased and amazed and grateful that the work that we all did in the Franco/Elizabeth/ Cameron/Scotty/Liesl universe has such unbelievable support, and I’m really grateful that I got to be a part of something that was really special. I’m really proud of what we all did. I’m thoroughly excited about what’s next, because you just never know. But most of all, I’m touched and amazed at how gracious the fans have been so far.”

That extends to the fans’ support of how he spent a good chunk of his hiatus from GH: He joined Cameo, the celeb video shout-out service, and donated 100 percent of the profits to Feeding America. “It has just been so beautiful, the whole thing,” he reports. “I’m just so grateful for everyone’s support of Feeding America. Together, we have fed hundreds of thousands of people, and it’s just such an awesome kind of coming together of me getting a chance to thank people for their support, and them getting a chance to lend a helping hand to people who might be having a hard time. Who doesn’t want to be a part of that? I am surprised by how much I enjoy it. I’m going to keep doing it! It’s really nice to lend a hand.”

While Cameo kept him busy, Howarth says he looked forward to getting back to work. “I really like the people that I work with. It was lovely to see the crew. I really like what I do, and I’ve been doing it a long time, and it’s really nice for me to be this far into a career and still have a level of enthusiasm where I look forward to getting back to work when I’m away from work. It’s really nice. I’m really lucky.”

Roger Howarth

American actor (born 1968)

Roger Howarth (born September 13, 1968) is an American actor. He played character Todd Manning on the daytime drama One Life to Live (OLTL); the character earned Howarth a Daytime Emmy Award in 1994,[1] and is cited as an icon in the soap opera genre.[2] He left the series in 2003 and joined soap opera As the World Turns, where he played the character of Paul Ryan until the series' final episode in 2010. Howarth returned to OLTL in May 2011, eventually deciding to continue the role on General Hospital in March 2012.[3] Due to a lawsuit from Prospect Park, Howarth, along with Kristen Alderson and Michael Easton, were forced to exit their roles in March 2013, only to return as new characters in May of the same year.[4] He returned as Franco on General Hospital, the character formerly created and portrayed by James Franco. When the character was written off in March 2021,[5] Howarth returned two months later as a new character, Austin Gatlin-Holt.[6] In addition to his soap opera work, Howarth has guest starred in television shows such as Prey and Dawson's Creek.

Early life[edit]

Howarth was born in Hastings-on-Hudson in Westchester County, New York.[1] His father was involved in theater and wrote plays.[1] Exposed to the arts at an early age, Howarth performed in the play The Grand Duke at the age of seven. He was active in his high school drama department and performed in numerous plays at school. He played soccer from the time he was a small child up until 19 years of age.[7] He took the opportunity to play in other countries with the Puma Shoes U.S. National Soccer Team. In an interview, when asked if he was a professional soccer player, Howarth answered, "No! Heavens no."[7] He reiterated how he had played soccer as a child up to his late teenage years and said he was on a team that played in Europe, Brazil, and other countries, but that it was an amateur team; he "never got paid" to play, Howarth said.[7]

Howarth initially resisted acting as a profession and studied political science at George Washington University. However, after one semester, he dropped out of college to join an intense acting program at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center in Connecticut.[1]

Career[edit]

Howarth was discovered during a nationwide talent search and was cast in the role of Kent Winslow on the ABC daytime drama Loving. The role was short-lived. It was shortly after this that he was cast on the ABC daytime drama One Life to Live as Todd Manning, in what was supposed to be a day-player role, but became one of the genre's most successful and enduring characters. The character has also been termed an icon by the press.[2] Howarth portrayed Todd on-and-off since 1992. He was strongly praised for his work on the series,[9][10][11][12][13] and won a Daytime Emmy Award in 1994 for the role.[1][14] Subsequent attempts to rehabilitate the rapist character of Todd, however, unnerved Howarth. After a female fan shouted "Rape me, Todd!" at a public appearance, his ambivalence about the role deepened.[15] After attempts were made to pair Todd and the woman he raped, Marty Saybrooke, as a romantic couple, Howarth quit the show in 1995.[16] He subsequently returned, but Todd was portrayed even more as a villain than a hero. His character's pairing with Kassie DePaiva's Blair Cramer won over fans and the two later became a supercouple.[17] While with the series, Howarth found time to extend his career to prime time, and was cast as the murderous Randall Lynch for 4 episodes of the sci-fi series Prey.

In 1998, Howarth departed One Life to Live for a second time, looking to pursue other acting projects both on Broadway and in Hollywood. He made his first Broadway debut in The White Rose, but also did some theater work in Henry IV, Passions, You Touched Me, Mother Courage, and Orestes.[18] A prominent stage appearance for Howarth was in James Goldman's Broadway production of The Lion In Winter. The play officially opened on Broadway on March 11, 1999 and ended with "its final curtain" on May 30, 1999. During the play's run, Howarth appeared opposite Stockard Channing and Laurence Fishburne.[18]

In 2000, Howarth returned to One Life to Live. He portrayed Professor Greg Hetson on the series Dawson's Creek in 2003 during a brief break from the role of Todd. Later that year, he decided it was time for him to move on from the role of Todd, and he signed on with CBS daytime drama As the World Turns, taking over the role of Paul Ryan in July 2003.

In August 2010, it was reported that Howarth would be returning to One Life to Live some time in January 2011, though other sources disputed this.[19] On April 4, 2011, it was confirmed that Howarth would be returning to the series. Before reclaiming his previous role, it was initially unknown if he would be returning as Todd or someone connecting him to the character. "I am looking forward to returning to One Life to Live," stated Howarth. "We are going to have a lot of fun telling this story, and I am excited to see how it will unfold."[20] Howarth made his onscreen return on May 13, 2011.

Howarth, Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson appeared on General Hospital from 2012 to 2013.[3] Their characters of Todd Manning, John McBain and Starr Manning would return to One Life to Live and likely be recast with new actors with the current actors receiving new characters once they return to General Hospital.Prospect Park owned the rights to all One Life to Live characters; TV Guide reported that because ABC does not want to risk any further legal disputes with Prospect Park concerning the characters, the only way to avoid such disputes may be to have the former One Life to Live actors portray "characters that in no way resemble the current ones" in order to stay on General Hospital.[4] ABC announced that the actors would be returning to General Hospital on May 13, 2013, but without naming the characters they would portray. Howarth also continued to portray Todd Manning on Prospect Park's online version of One Life to Live.

On May 29, 2013, Howarth's new character on General Hospital was revealed; he was cast as Franco, essentially recasting James Franco's original character. Howarth is listed as a full-time contract cast member. On March 9, 2021, the character was written off after being fatally shot by Peter August (Wes Ramsey). That same day, it was announced Howarth had temporarily departed General Hospital, however, would return at a later date.[21] He made his last appearance as Franco on March 11.[22] He returned May 27 in the role of Austin.[23]

Personal life[edit]

Howarth met actress Cari Stahler in New York City when he lived above the café where she worked. She asked him out on a date, which took place at Coney Island. They later married, and now have two children.[1]
