Howarth confirmed his exit on Instagram. Fans have mixed reactions to his character’s death. Rumors first started swirling when his character Austin was seen lying in a pool of blood. In his message, Howarth thanked the fans for their support.
“Three things that I know for sure,” Howarth wrote. “1, Daytime fans are lovely and amazing and supportive and dedicated and I am deeply grateful to each sparkly one of them. 2, I enjoyed my time at general hospital and wish the cast and crew the best and continued success.
It was a pleasure working with you all. 3, Life is amazing. We just don’t ever know what’s gonna happen. How great! Turn toward the light. Always. Huge thank you to you all.”
The General Hospital spoilers suggest that Howarth’s contract wasn’t renewed. Austin’s death helped move the storyline along. Howarth admits that he was kind of shocked to get the news. Still, he is happy with his time on the show and trusts the writers and producers for doing their job.
General Hospital Spoilers: Todd Manning Could Return
Howarth previously filled the roles of Franco Baldwin and Todd Manning. His character of Austin wasn’t beloved by most fans. Austin was a character who was thrown around Port Charles with very little storyline of his own.
He lost his previous character of Todd Manning in a legal battle between ABC and Prospect Park, the company that licensed All My Children and One Life to Live in its streaming reboots.
However, some fans think Austin’s death could lead to Todd’s return. The user AllenAJ posted on the SoapCentral.com Message Boards: “I was curious as to what you have seen in the writing or heard that makes you think Todd might return.”
One fan resoundingly wrote: “Nope to all of this, it won’t happen.” A second user noted: “If Todd returns, I doubt he would be portrayed by RoHo so no point to even having the character.”
The General Hospital spoilers reveal there are no hints of Todd Manning returning to Port Charles. Some fans think Howarth had an incredible run on the show. He was given chances with four different characters. It just didn’t work out in his favor.
