ONE LIFE TO LIVE Characters On GENERAL HOSPITAL Moving Back To Llanview, At Least Temporarily

Daytime Confidential is reporting the characters of John, Todd and Starr will be moving from GENERAL HOSPITAL back to their original soap, ONE LIFE TO LIVE.
Look for the characters of John McBain (Michael Easton), Todd (Roger Howarth) and Starr Manning (Kristen Alderson) to at least temporarily exit General Hospital some time in the near future, according to sources. Per the agreement ABC Daytime made when they originally brought on the three One Life to Live characters, GH has to stop using Todd and Co. now that Prospect Park's The Online Network is prepping to relaunch OLTL.
According to the report, Prospect Park wants to use the characters to help launch the new ONE LIFE TO LIVE.

  1. They should be working hard to get Trevor St. John, too.

  2. Hope they let Roger Howarth come back to GH quickly. He's a huge part of the revitalization of that show.

  3. I am really enjoying Roger Howarth on GH so I would like him to stay there for awhile. Trevor St. John is needed at OLTL.

  4. Roger, Kristen and Michael belong on their show, with the families and stories that showcase them properly....looking forward to seeing how this plays out.

    LET THE OLTL CHARACTERS GO BACK TO THEIR OWN SHOW. GH has enough characters that are rich in history and are bringing up the ratings on the show -- Anna Duke Lucy Felica Mac and others as other gh vets still out their. Let the OLTL characters go. Move on focus on the characters that belong with the show and let the OLTL characters help PP suceed and so OLTL can come back for the people who miss it and stop being so selfish. Let Gh be GH with their characters and OLTL be oltl with their characters Todd Starr and John are not GH characters. So let them go............

  6. Todd is the core of OLTL so I'm glad he's headed home and with RH in the role. He IS the only Todd afterall.

    Todd, John and Starr are all OLTL characters. FV brought them onto GH to begin with so a part of OL would remain alive and probably cause he knew something like this was possible so he kept those wonderful actors on GH so they wouldn't be snagged by anyone else. I cannot wait to see everyone HOME IN LLANVIEW WHERE THEY BELONG!!!

    GH has plenty of characters and vets returning. Give us our actors/characters back. It's only fair.

  7. Roger, Kristen and Michael belong back in Llanview were their families are and where their characters were created. Them being on GH has done nothing for me. Time for them to be sent back home and reunited with their families.

  8. Many are acting as if OLTL is a new show that wants to steal GH characters to help launch it. For an entire year all I heard was send the OLTL rejects packing but now that the OLTL reboot is shaping up as a real possibility ABC wants to keep using our characters. Starr Manning was born in Llanview, Todd Manning was created on OLTL so just give that up and let GH do with them as they please? I think not. Bottomline, OLTL should never have been cancelled. And, for those that say you love Todd Manning on GH tune into the revitalized OLTL online you will absolutely ADORE him there. Just sayin.

  9. I'm happy.. They have NO purpose on GH, in their place they should put Kristina Wagner, Tristan Rogers and Ian Buchanan or Jon Lindstrom, Lynn Herring and Wally Kurth on contract.

  10. MAKE IT PERMANENT!!! They stick out like a SORE THUMB ON GH!!!! They have unfinished stories on OLTL, and I'm sick of us fans of their REAL SUPERCOUPLES,(not the contrived new ones they formed on GH) getting screwed OVER. ENOUGH already. We should take priority here. We invested more years, emotions, and campaign time into these couples, and frankly RC made promises to us on Finale Day, January 13, 2012. DO WHAT YOU SAID ALREADY! REUNITE OUR COUPLES ALREADY! THANK you!!! Good night!

  11. I have to admit I'm not that disappointed for GH to lose Starr and John.

    But I am saddened to see that Roger Howarth is part of the deal. He has infused a new energy into Todd on GH that has made the character fascinating again. His new approach has made Todd, Howarth, and Port Charles refreshing and can't-look-away TV. I recognize The Real Todd is an important part of the Llanview canvas as well, but perhaps there will be a way he can do both?

  12. ^^ I completely agree with you Damon. Roger Howarth has infused GH with an energy that has been long missing and I think irreplaceable. GH could definitely make it work without these characters but Todd Manning/Roger Howarth has been a large part of what I enjoy tuning in for. John and Starr are a whole other matter! John has been a strong addition and makes Sam a viable romantic character for the first time ever but I wouldn't miss him that much. The less said about Starr/Kirsten Alderson the better...she should have never been added to GH in my opinion.

    All in all, I hope GH/ABC can work out something with PP for these actors sakes. I doubt they would like to give up steady gigs on television shot in Los Angeles to move to Connecticut for an Internet-based venture!

  13. So thankful to even hear the statement that they have to go back to OLTL . So very AWESOME !! Oltl is there home. Its where the story begins & ends. Sorry GH , but OLTL deserves to have all the original actors that we can get back. We shared, but its time ti go back to llanview p.a and continue the greatest story lines ever written.

  15. Roger Howarth gave GH the shot in the arm that it needed. He now belongs on GH. Roger Howarth and Todd Manning are the best thing to happen to GH in a very long time. If GH is smart they will do what can to keep him or they are going to loss alot of viewers.

  16. Both RH and KS, never wanted to join the OLTL reboot. KA wanted to move to LA (and got the request from FV). Being forced to go back could not be easy. I like her better on GH, she has really sparkled with Michael.

    RH only came back to OLTL because the show ending and only came to GH because it was exciting and new. Being forced to come back to the East coast could not be easy for him.

    GH has been great with RH. The only thing missing was Viki in his life.

    I hope they both come back.

    Now ME did sign on for the Reboot, and aside from his story with Sam, was merely a recurring character. He needs to go back and resolve his story with Nat before he can move on with Sam. (Wait! MA has NOT signed on for the Reboot, yet. So how can it happen. They could recast, but they could have done that on GH)

    I actually like John better on GH. He is a breath air.

  17. I love them on both shows but realisticly, they deserve to stay with whomever they wish and I am sure money will have alot to do with it also and you cannot blame them for that.

  18. Well, this will surely make the fans happy who were dissatisfied with One Life to Live characters coming to GH. I personally hope that at least "Roger H" as Todd will get to come back to GH. He really has helped brighten GH and me (and other fans) and I will miss him in Port Charles!!!!! Maybe he can travel back and forth from one soap to another as several actors have done thru the years!!!!!!
