Trevor St. John told Soap Opera Digest though he doesn't know what the show has planned for Roger's return, he can't imagine that Roger would return as anyone other than the real Todd. He put it into perspective by explaining if Roger isn't the real Todd then that would mean Todd has been an impostor all along - since way back in the day.
Soaps.com reminds fans that the show has some great things planned that will intertwine Roger and Trevor's characters. Stay tuned, as this should be interesting to say the least!
Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Roger will indeed be returning to his Llanview roots. Though there is no word on how the actor will return, he'll begin filming scenes in May that will involve the current Todd Manning (Trevor St. John).
"We are thrilled to have Roger return to 'One Life to Live'," says executive producer Frank Valentini. "As 'OLTL' viewers know, Trevor St. John has been playing the role of Todd Manning since 2003. We have a great story planned that will involve both actors."
"I am looking forward to returning to 'OLTL'," said Howarth. "We are going to have a lot of fun telling this story, and I am excited to see how it will unfold."

Those who watched today's episode of One Life to Live got a glimpse of the way Todd Manning used to look when he was played by actor Roger Howarth off and on from 1993 to 2003. Ever since As The World Turns was canceled fans have been hoping that Roger (Oakdale's ex-Paul) could somehow return to Llanview. He was last seen in March of 2003 when the actor decided to leave the show. Our next glimpse of Todd came in May 2003, played by Trevor St. John, after Todd had reconstructive surgery, partly to win Blair (Kassie DePaiva) back.
With the promise of Ted King's (Tomas) mysterious upcoming storyline, could fans get what they've been asking for? Could it be that the Todd of today isn't Todd after all? Or could there be someone lurking around Paris with the face of the Todd of old? Would you welcome a return for Roger? Vote in our poll to let Soaps.com know.
