Happy birthday to daytime veteran Roger Howarth, who turns 48 today!
After brief stints on GUIDING LIGHT (as Jory) and LOVING (as Kent), Howarth joined the cast of ONE LIFE TO LIVE as Todd Manning in 1992. It was meant to be a short-term role, but he proved so popular with fans that Howarth played the part on and off until the soap went off the air. Todd was brought over to GENERAL HOSPITAL in 2012, but legal issues forced writers to later have Howarth play a recast Franco instead.
From 2003-10, Howarth took on the role of AS THE WORLD TURNS’ Paul, earning two Daytime Emmy Award nominations to go with the one nomination and one win he garnered during his time on OLTL.
