We found out some intriguing information about Roger Howarth’s contract status at General Hospital.
On or Off?
Soap Cities has learned from an inside source that fan fave General Hospital star Roger Howarth has reportedly been taken off contract at the ABC sudser.
His contract negotiations recently hit a snag, and now it seems that contract is no more.
Never fear Howarth fans, for now at least, Howarth will be on the show for some time, said the inside source.
And remember, the popular actor’s contract negotiations also hit a snag last year, but he eventually resigned.
What of Friz and Rebecca Herbst?
When an actor is off-contract they will necessarily be seen less, so what does this mean for Franco’s hot and heavy romance with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst)?
And what about Elizabeth in general? Can we still expect her in front-burner storylines? GH played hardball with her contract negotiations a while back too. She was written off the show, but fan outcry brought her back with a contract.
Your Voice Matters
Roger Howarth’s passionate fan base has already sprung into action.
It’s begun a Twitter campaign to keep the actor on GH. The hashtag to use if you want to Tweet your participation is #KeepRogerGH.
The daytime icon’s fans have also initiated an online petition to impress upon ABC and GH how beloved and wanted on the show Howarth is.
