Of course, the death of a character within a show can often be attributed to its real-life actor’s contract coming to an end, so that is a major assumption that can be derived from Franco’s gruesome shooting. However, that isn’t the case with Roger.
In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Roger confirmed that he isn’t stopping his participation in the program entirely, he’ll just be taking a hiatus to work on his efforts with Feeding America. This nonprofit organization seeks to combat hunger domestically and is a passion project for Roger.
“I’m really excited. I have great faith in the people who think of these things. I’ve been in good hands so far,” he said of his role on General Hospital, insinuating that there is the potential for Franco to make a wild comeback in some way. How that will eventually transpire, however, remains a mystery.
New episodes of General Hospital air on weekdays at 3 p.m EST on ABC.
