General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Roger Howarth is headed back to the studio for filming in April, but no one knows for sure who he’ll be playing upon his return. Some fans are rooting for Howarth to reprise the role of Todd Manning, who he played when he made his GH debut in 2012.
Todd was a One Life to Live character along with his daughter, Starr Manning (Kristen Alderson), who also made the move over to GH back in 2012. Todd and Starr were later written out of General Hospital for legal reasons related to OLTL’s online reboot, but there’s the potential for two big comebacks here.
In a new interview with Soap Opera News, Kristen Alderson insisted she’d be on board for making a return as Starr. “It would be a dream come true,” Alderson said. Alderson played Kiki Jerome from 2013 until her departure in 2015. That departure gave Alderson some much-needed time off and allowed her to explore who she was as a person.
However, Alderson is clearly ready to get back in the soap game – and she’d love to do it as Starr on General Hospital! Alderson might be open to other roles as well, but Starr will always have a piece of her heart.
“But I would be really sad if someone said you could never play Starr Manning again because she is a part of me,” Alderson admitted. “So, if I had the chance to play her again it would just be the happiest thing.”
Of course, that’d be some fantastic news for many General Hospital fans as well. There are plenty of viewers who have missed Alderson on GH and would like to see her make a comeback – particularly if she’s playing Starr.
If Howarth returns as Todd, it’d be smart to bring Alderson back as Starr, too. Why not reunite some of the Manning family and deliver some new stories as a result? General Hospital spoilers say some hot drama’s brewing no matter what, so we’ll look forward to what’s in store once Howarth’s back in the action.
