Howarth was asked what everyone wants to know, who is he coming back as? The actor stuck to the script (as far as we know) and was mighty circumspect!

Friz was a sore subject for some fans, a dream pairing for others. What did Howarth think of the pairing?
“I’m grateful and I’m really proud that I was part of a pairing that generated such positive devotion. I know that not every story is for every fan, but the people that were rooting for Franco and Elizabeth were just so super-supportive.”
He added, “I think in this world, it’s important to lift one another up and support one another and the way they all reacted and comported themselves on the Internet, which is a place where negativity and cruelty fester, they were always in the light. So I’m really grateful that I could make a few people smile. That makes me happy.”

What was not in dispute was that fans seemed to love the connection between Franco and his stepson Cameron Webber (William Lipton). Franco was at his best when interacting with Cam and fans could appreciate that side of the character, if not all his other facets.
Howarth also delighted in the relationships saying, “I loved the dynamic between Cam and Franco and I think it was really special. William is such a sweet kid and that really radiates in his portrayal. It wasn’t ever difficult for me to tap into the level of respect that my character had for his character because I basically just had to stay out of his way.”
