Thomas Todd Manning aka Todd Manning is a fictional character from the ABC soap opera General Hospital. He is the son of the late, Victor Lord and his late ex-wife, Irene Manning. He is the identical twin of Victor Lord, Jr..

He is married to Blair Cramer Manning, with whom he has two children: Starr and Jack. He also has a daughter, Danielle, with his ex-wife, Téa Delgado. Through his marriage to Blair, he gained his nephew, Sam as an adoptive stepson, and like Blair he considers him to be his own son and he has shown more affection towards him than his father ever did.

He was portrayed by Roger Howarth on General Hospital from March 5, 2012 to March 20, 2013.

Howarth later returned as a recast of James Franco's character, Franco (later known as Franco Baldwin) from May 13, 2013 until the character was killed off on March 9, 2021. Howarth made his final appearance as Franco on March 11, 2021.

Howarth then returned as a new character named Dr. Austin Gatlin-Holt on May 27, 2021.


The character was originated on the soap opera One Life to Live in 1992 by actor Roger Howarth.

Howarth left in March of 2003, and actor Trevor St. John portrayed a character on the show by the same name from August of 2003 to August of 2011.[8]

Howarth returned in May of 2011, and it was revealed shortly before St. John left that St. John's character was not actually Todd, but his twin brother Victor Lord, Jr.; and that Howarth's character was actually Todd.

After the television finale of OLTL in January 2012, Howarth transferred the character to General Hospital in March. He was initially on GH from March 5 to March 13, 2012 for a short run, but he later returned on May 9, 2012, where he was put on contract with ABC. He, along with the other two Llanview transplants (Kristen Alderson, who plays Starr Manning; and Michael Easton, who plays John McBain), were forced to take a break from GH due to legal reasons surrounding the reboot of OLTL[9]. They made their final appearances on GH on March 20, 2013.

During this break, Howarth signed a deal with Prospect Park to reprise his role of Todd on the OLTL reboot for about four weeks,[10] He later returned to GH on May 13, 2013, but as a new character, Franco Baldwin, previously portrayed by James Franco.

On March 9, 2021, Franco was killed off but Howarth himself revealed that he's not leaving GH. He revealed that he will temporarily be off-screen for a while.[11] Howarth returned on May 27, 2021 as a new character named Dr. Austin Gatlin-Holt.


Todd, Kevin, Powell and Zach

Todd first arrived in Llanview, Pennsylvania on One Life to Live as a fraternity brother of Kevin Buchanan. He was tutored by another student named Marty Saybrooke and they had a one night stand. Later, Todd orchestrated and participated in the gang rape of Marty at a fraternity party. Todd and the other two boys involved in the rape, Kevin's cousin Powell Lord III and Zach Rosen, were tried. Marty was confused and thought that Kevin had also participated in the gang rape, and Todd let Kevin take part of the blame for it until Marty remembered the truth and cleared his name. This is one of the contributing factors of Todd and Kevin's life-long feud with each other. When the boys' attorney Nora Gannon realized they were actually guilty, she caused a mistrial.

While awaiting a retrial, Todd trapped Marty in an alley and tried to rape her again. Her friend Luna Moody came upon them and hit Todd with a lead pipe, leaving his iconic scar across his right cheek. This knocked Todd out and saved Marty from being raped by him again. The scar serves as a constant reminder to Todd and everyone else of his past and misdeeds.

Powell later confessed to the rape, and all three of them were sent to prison. While on a work release, Todd escaped, caused the death of Marty's friend Suede Pruitt, and kidnapped a woman named Rebecca Lewis. He was shot and presumed dead, but turned up at Kevin's family home Llanfair, hiding in the gardening shed. He told Kevin's little cousins, C.J. and Sarah Roberts, that he was the genie Ali, and they brought him food. He later saved Marty, C.J., and Kevin's sister Jessica during a car wreck. He was shot by the police commissioner, Bo Buchanan, and sent back to jail, but was later pardoned and released.

Blair and Todd's second wedding

In late 1994, Todd met Blair Cramer. They had a one night stand around Christmastime. Blair then found out that Todd was actually the long-lost son and heir of the presumed dead Victor Lord, and would inherit $27.8 million, which Todd himself didn't know. Blair lied to Todd and told him she was pregnant with his child, and they were married in February of 1995. Todd found out he was the heir, the biological son of Victor Lord and Irene Manning, who had been the childhood friend and college roommate of Victor's eldest daughter Viki. Irene had given Todd to her cousin Peter and his wife Bitsy to raise as a baby. This made him Kevin, C.J., Sarah, and Jessica's uncle; and Powell's cousin. He inherited the money, and bought the tabloid The Intruder, which he renamed The Sun. He and Blair fell in love and Blair soon became pregnant for real, but then miscarried. Todd then found out that Blair was not actually pregnant when they were married, and had their marriage annulled based on fraud in August. Blair, however, then found out she was pregnant again, and they were remarried in November. The day after their wedding, Todd went to Ireland and was shot by Irish terrorists when he was mistaken for Marty's boyfriend Patrick Thornhart and presumed dead. Todd and Blair's daughter Starr was born January 8, 1996.

Blair and Todd with Starr

When Todd returned to Llanview months later, he witnessed Blair and Patrick making love. He went to his sister Viki, who hid him in her attic and later brought his daughter Starr to meet him. He kidnapped Starr, but later returned her. He blew up Guy Armitage's yacht and tried to frame Patrick for it. Guy died, and Patrick was able to prove he didn't do it.

Later, Todd married his attorney Téa Delgado in order to get custody of Starr. He paid Téa $5 million in exchange. They actually fell in love with each other though. Later, Georgie Phillips was murdered and Todd tried to frame Bo Buchanan for the murder, it backfired though and Todd was the one who looked guilty. So, Todd kidnapped everyone involved and tried to force a confession out of someone. Nora's daughter Rachel finally confessed, and Todd ran off and took Téa with him. Later, Todd punched Téa, but then she knocked him out and had him arrested.

Todd with his first-born daughter, Starr

Todd later escaped police custody and cornered Téa in a cabana. Todd's life-long mentor and friend, Sam Rappaport, went in to talk him out, and Todd opened up to him. Sam found out that Todd had not only been physically abused as a child, but he was also raped by his adopted father on his fourteenth birthday.[12] Sam tried to bring up the fact of Todd's abuse as a child in court, but Todd seemingly went into a catatonic state and, when he emerged from it, appeared to have Dissociative Identity Disorder (or multiple personalities) like his sister Viki. Todd was calling himself Tom and was gentle and child-like. Later, other personalities came out: Rod, a womanizing romantic; Pete, the violent side of Todd; and Miss Perkins, a mother-like personality who took care of the other personalities. Many thought he was faking to escape prosecution, but others believed him. At one point, Tom stood up on the roof of the hospital ready to jump, and Viki was able to talk him down. Todd and Téa remarried, but Starr accidentally played a tape at the reception of Todd confessing that he was faking his mental condition, and Todd left town in 1998.

Later, Todd came back and reconnected with Blair. They were set to get married, but on the night before their wedding, Blair's ex Max Holden drugged her and made sure that Todd saw them in bed together. In revenge, Todd revealed at the altar that Blair had shot Max, which Todd had been helping to cover up, and he then turned over incriminating evidence. He then found out that Max had set up Blair, though, and he testified that Blair was crazy when she shot Max and she was sent to a mental institution instead of prison.

Todd and Blair with Starr and Jack

After Blair was released, she found out she was pregnant and figured out it was Todd's. She fled to Mexico to have her baby, but Todd followed. Todd then delivered the baby; and thinking the child was Max's, gave the baby away and told Blair he had died. When Todd found out that the baby was actually his, he brought the baby back to Blair and told her that it was a baby who needed a home. They "adopted" him and named him Jack. The truth was revealed when Jack developed aplastic anemia, which Starr also had had as a baby. He needed a bone marrow transplant, and Todd had to track down Alex Olanov, who had been the donor for Starr.

Blair was furious and left Todd, taking the kids to Hawaii. Todd, however, followed them and hired Ross Rayburn to help him kidnap Starr and Jack. While there, Todd ran into Téa, and she warned Blair. Blair took the kids back to Llanview; and Todd, Téa, and Ross became stranded on a deserted island together. On the island, both Ross and Todd fell for Téa. Todd, however, decided he needed to get back to Blair, his true love, and decided to leave on a homemade raft. Just before he left though, he and Téa made love.

Todd locked in Victor's crypt by Mitch Laurence

Later, Mitch Laurence tried to kidnap Starr, but Blair convinced him to take her instead. Todd kidnapped his niece Natalie and took her to Mitch in exchange for Blair. It was revealed that Todd's father Victor Lord was not dead after all, and needed a heart transplant from a relative. Mitch took Natalie to have her heart transplanted into Victor, but the plan was foiled. Todd had a tense meeting with his father for the first time before he quickly died. Later, Mitch had Todd kidnapped and beaten and locked in Victor's crypt; but, Todd was no longer there when the crypt was searched later.

Todd awakens after years of being in catatonic state

Todd was legally declared dead, and months later, Blair started dating a man who said he was Mitch's brother Walker Laurence, and even married him. Blair later found out that Walker claimed to actually be Todd, with a new face. This man believed to be Todd lived in Llanview, raised Todd's kids, married both of his ex-wives twice each, and ran his newspaper for eight years, with no one ever suspecting that he wasn't actually the man he said he was. In 2009, Téa revealed to "Todd" that they had a daughter together, Danielle, from the time they had made love on the deserted island. Téa had a DNA test done to make sure, and it came back that "Todd" was in fact Danielle's father.[13]

In 2011, it was revealed that the real Todd was being held captive in an undisclosed location. He had been locked up and tortured for the last eight years. On May 16, 2011, he finally awoke from his catatonic state. He escaped and made his way back to Llanview with the intention of getting back to his life as it was before.

Todd finally escapes after eight years of imprisonment

When he got there, however, he found this other man, who looked nothing like him, claiming he was Todd Manning and living his life. He was married to Téa, running The Sun, his kids called him "dad," and everyone, including his sister Viki and niece Jessica to whom he was extremely close, thought he was Todd. Todd couldn't figure out how this could have happened, how everyone could believe this fraud. Todd secretly went to Blair's house and happened upon a boy named Sam Manning, who said he was Todd Manning's son. Todd couldn't figure out how this kid he's never seen could possibly be his son. He became friends with Sam, and later saved his life when a man tracking down the escaped Todd came after him and threatened to kill Sam. Todd killed the man, and Blair took Sam to be questioned by police detective John McBain when the body was discovered. Sam told John that his friend, a man with a line on his face, had killed him to save his life. He positively identified an old picture of Todd, with the scar on his face.

Todd researched the imposter's life for the past eight years, and realized that Sam was the imposter's son, not his. He then dressed up like a Spider-Man entertainer and went to Sam's birthday party, where he kidnapped the child. He called "Todd" and told him he had his son and to meet him at The Sun. The two men then finally came face to face for the first time. They both claimed to each other that they were the real Todd and that the other was an imposter.

Todd took "Todd" at gunpoint back home, but before they could go inside, more men who were looking for Todd because of his escape took him and shot him. Todd, however, was wearing a bullet proof vest and was saved by Louie, a homeless man, who told him to contact John McBain. Todd did, and John took DNA from both Todd Mannings and had it tested against DNA they had on file from the Marty Saybrooke rape case years before, which was definitely the real Todd's DNA. Shockingly, both DNA tests came back as positive matches. They couldn't understand it, and Téa recalled the DNA test she had done on "Todd" and Danielle that showed he was her father. Starr suggested that the only way they could have the same DNA is if they were identical twins, but that didn't explain why they both actually thought they were Todd, and why they both had Todd's memories.

Téa's brother, Tomás Delgado, who was a former CIA agent, revealed that he had been hired eight years before to take Todd from Victor's crypt and take him to another CIA agent. He didn't know what had happened to Todd after that. John and Tomás were able to track down the agent Tomás had taken Todd to in Louisiana and they went down there to investigate. Whom they found, however, was Irene Manning, Todd's biological mother, who had long been thought dead. She was the head of this rogue CIA agency and knew the whole story of what had happened.

Irene reveals the identities of the two Todds

They brought Irene back to Llanview, and she revealed to both Todds and Todd's sister Viki that they were in fact identical twin brothers. Irene had given Todd to her cousin Peter and his wife Bitsy to raise, while she secretly kept his twin brother Victor Lord, Jr. She joined the CIA and started a rogue operation. In 2003, when Todd had been beaten, she had him brought to her and brainwashed Victor Jr. into believing he was his twin brother, giving him all of Todd's memories. She wanted the son she raised to have his father's inheritance. Realizing that Mitch Laurence was still after Todd, she gave Victor Jr. plastic surgery to look like Mitch's brother Walker, to keep him off Mitch's radar.

Todd tells Starr he's the real Todd and embraces his daughter for the first time in eight years

Learning the truth, Todd rushed straight to Starr to tell her, and met his granddaughter Hope for the first time. Todd, however, found himself broke and living with his sister Viki. He wanted his life back, including his kids, his newspaper, and Blair. He stole a gun from Blair's house with the intention of killing Victor. The first time he went to Victor's to kill him, though, he saw Victor and Téa making love, and walked away. Later, Victor was found shot and seemingly died. Todd was then seen on the pier giving the gun to the homeless man Louie. Todd's son Jack, who couldn't accept Todd as his father and still loved Victor as his father, still calling him "dad," lied and said he saw Todd at the murder scene. Todd swore he did not kill his brother; although he wanted to, he couldn't.

Todd meets his granddaughter Hope for the first time

Todd was arrested for Victor's murder, but Starr helped him escape when Irene threatened to kill his entire family. Todd found his family safe at Victor's house, then went to find his mother, who ended up shooting him in the shoulder. They then heard an explosion and she told him that that was his family dying. Todd then shot and killed his mother. Todd's family, however, was safe. Bo Buchanan, the police commissioner, had safely detonated the bomb, saving everyone. Todd ran off and Blair found him dying at Viki's cabin. She nursed him back to health and got her Aunt Dorian, who's a doctor, to talk her through what she needed to do over the phone and call in a prescription for him.

Todd shoots and kills his mother Irene

Todd and Blair got closer during this time as they reminisced. Téa picked up Todd's prescription for him and brought it to him. They then planned to find Victor's true killer to exonerate Todd. While Todd was alone in the cabin, however, his dead mother appeared to him and helped him remember that he had indeed killed Victor. Todd was devastated at remembering this and claimed that Irene had made him do it, as they had been in adjoining jail cells while they were both locked up, and she messed with his head. Téa got Todd released on probation, and he kept the fact that he remembered killing Victor to himself.

Todd and Tina share a moment after she gave him his life back

Victor had left everything to Irene in his will; and when Irene died, she left everything to her and Victor Sr.'s daughter, Tina. Tina, however, seeing that everything was Todd's before Victor Jr. took it, generously gave everything back to him. Todd thanks his older sister and share a special moment. Todd then went right back to work at his newspaper. He decided to frame Tomás for the murder because Tomás was involved with Blair, and Todd wanted Blair to himself. He lured Tomás to a warehouse, then put his fingerprints on the gun used to kill Victor, which was then planted in Tomás' bedroom at Téa's house. He kept Tomás tied up and had him confess to Blair via video chat to the murder. Todd then moved on with Blair. As they got closer, Todd bonded with Sam, now knowing he's his nephew, even more. He also blackmailed Jack, who had tried to burn down The Sun offices, into being nicer to him and to allow him to join in family activities.

"It's always been you and me Blair."

John and Téa, who had found out she was pregnant with Victor's child after he "died," were working to solve Victor's murder. They suspected that Todd was actually the killer. John got a hold of Todd's cell phone and tapped it. Through this tap, they were able to find the location of where Todd was holding Tomás. John rescued Tomás, and then barged in on Todd and Blair while they were finally making love for the first time in over nine years. John arrested Todd for his brother Victor's murder. Unbeknownst to everyone, however, Victor was actually alive and being held captive by an escaped prisoner, Allison Perkins.

On March 5, 2012, Todd first arrives in Port Charles to visit his daughter Starr at General Hospital, having heard she was injured. Before he can get to Starr, he meets up with his ex-wife Blair, who forbids him from seeing their daughter. Todd is out on bail for murdering his twin brother Victor Lord, Jr., and has jumped bail by leaving Llanview to be with his daughter. Blair tells him that Starr's boyfriend Cole, and their daughter Hope, were killed in the car crash.

Todd comforts his daughter Starr

Todd later goes to the Metro Court Hotel to rent a room, paying in cash and refusing to give a name. He meets Carly Jacks, who has been forbidden from seeing Jason in the hospital, and they bond after realizing they have this in common. Todd and Carly come up with a plan to dress in scrubs and sneak into the hospital to see Starr and Jason, respectively. When Todd sees Starr, she at first doesn't want to see him and is angry at him for killing her Uncle Victor, the man who raised her, but he reminds her that Victor was never a real father to her, to which she doesn't deny that fact. Later she and her father Todd talk about Hope and Cole and he comforts her. During their short meeting, Starr tells him that Anthony Zacchara had told her that Sonny Corinthos was responsible for shooting out his tires and causing the wreck that killed Hope and Cole, and Todd vows to take care of the situation and their relationship got reconciled.

He then finds out from Carly that Sonny is at the courthouse being arraigned. Todd goes there, and pulls a gun on Sonny, threatening to kill him. John McBain comes in however, and arrests Todd to take him back to Llanview to stand trial for his brother's murder. Todd is acquitted due to post traumatic stress and returns to Port Charles on May 9, 2012 when Starr is charged with the attempted murder of Sonny. At first she's mad that he got away with murdering Victor and kidnapping Thomas, but she eventually blurted out that she's ecstatic that he was found not guilty, and that he's there to help her. His ex-wife Téa Delgado arrives soon after to defend Starr, and she isn't happy to see Todd. Todd continues to befriend Carly Jacks, and rents a room at her hotel, The Metro Court. Todd overhears Sonny's girlfriend Kate Howard confiding in her lawyer, Alexis Davis, that her alternate personality may have caused the accident that killed Cole and Hope.

Todd reveals he's been founded not guilty for the murder of his brother Victor

Todd goes to Sonny and tells him that if he gets Michael to recant his statement to the police about Starr trying to kill Sonny, that he won't tell the police about hearing Kate admit to shooting out Anthony's tires. When that falls on Sonny's deaf ears since Sonny is mad at Kate (who was actually her alter Connie at the time) for sleeping with Johnny Zacchara, Todd offers to use his tabloid The Sun to made Kate look good and discredit her psychiatrist Ewen Keenan, who Kate's alter Connie had knocked out and nearly killed, if Sonny gets Michael to recant his statement. Sonny ends up agreeing and getting Michael to recant his statement, and Starr is released from jail.

Todd helps Téa give birth

On June 1, 2012, Téa goes into labor in the car in the middle of a rain storm and they can't get to the hospital because there is a cell tower in the road. Todd takes Téa to a bus bench and she gives birth to a very still baby boy. Todd realizes something is wrong, so he takes the baby to find help and runs into Heather Webber, who tries to revive the baby but she tells Todd the baby is gone. Todd is devastated and doesn't know how he is going to tell Téa about the baby. Meanwhile, Sam Morgan and her baby boy arrive at the shed and she passes out. Todd hears her baby cry, and Téa comes up and thinks that the baby Todd is holding is her son, and he hands her the alive baby. Heather convinces him to switch the babies. Todd takes Téa and "her" son to the hospital. About a day or so later, he takes Téa and "her" son, whom she names Victor Lord III (but is actually Jason Morgan, Jr., later known as Danny Morgan) back to Llanview.

Switching the babies

Todd returns to Port Charles and takes over the paper The Press and renames it The Sun, and Heather blackmails him for a job. He hires Sam as his assistant. In July, Heather is arrested and blackmails Todd into helping her. She asks him to bring her something from her purse, so he dumped the entire thing out on his desk. In doing so, he finds the real paternity test which proves that Jason Morgan, not Franco, is the true biological father of Sam's son. He takes the test to the PCPD and confronts Heather about switching the paternity tests and the babies, but Heather blackmails him into keeping both secrets, by threatening to reveal his part in the baby switch.

In October, the baby switch is revealed and Danny Morgan is returned to Sam and Jason, and Todd tries to comfort Téa.  However, he blames all of the switch on Heather Webber. After Jason is presumed dead, Todd feels bad for Sam, so he inconspicuously gave the real paternity test to Steve Webber and Olivia Falconeri. After confirming that the test was authentic, Steve delivered the news to Sam that Jason is Danny's biological father.

In late October, Todd and Carly have a romantic encounter, but Carly says that she will not have sex with him. Todd helps Carly deal with the re-appearance of Carly's ex-husband A.J. Quartermaine. Todd is visited by his daughter Starr and Molly Lansing-Davis to published Molly's romantic novel, Love in Maine. The manuscript, however, is stolen by Todd's officemate Connie Falconeri.

Todd is very glad when Carly and Skye come and tell him that his love's (Blair) current fiancee (Tomás Delgado) may not be Tomás, but could actually be an international arms dealer named Lorenzo Alcazar.  They go to Llanview to tell Blair and Téa. In the end, Blair, Téa, and Skye leave to go and search for Tomás when a CIA agent tells them that Tomás is on a mission.

In the New Year's episodes, Todd and Carly have sex at his Metro Court suite.

On the January 4 and 7 episodes, Johnny Zacchara (due to his reveal of killing Cole and Hope), reveals the truth about Todd's involvement of the baby switch to Police Detective Dante Falconeri and Todd's love interest Carly Jacks.  Both Johnny and Todd are arrested and put in the same jail cell. Todd tries to smother Johnny with a pillow twice, and then hears from his attorney Diane Miller that the Judge and DA want the triple murderer (Johnny) first then the "baby switcher" (Todd), so Todd is left in the jail cell. Todd is then visited by Carly.

Todd in jail

He is subsequently sent to Ferncliff for mental testing and to see if he is able to stand trial.  After Heather Webber arranges for the workers to go on a walk-out strike, and knocking out Kevin Collins (Lucy's husband), Heather and Todd escape using Kevin's vehicle, and Lucy accompanies them. They go to Wyndemere. Todd decides that he will go over to Starr's and talk to Starr one last time. He says goodbye, and then leaves.

He goes to the harbor and sees that Caleb Morley, although he think it is John McBain, is arguing with Heather Webber, and Caleb throws her into the water. Todd then argues with Caleb and hears sirens coming. Caleb disappears, and Todd is taken into custody for attempted kidnapping of Danny Morgan (whom he had actually saved from being kidnapped by Caleb).  He talks to McBain and Rafe, and starts to agree that the man that he was arguing with was not McBain, but could be another man named Caleb Morley (later referred to his old stage name of Stephen Clay).

Todd leaves Port Charles

At his baby switching trial, Todd is able to get Johnny Zacchara's associate to lie in court and Heather Webber to take full blame on the stand for the baby switching.  The charges are later dismissed. He goes to see Carly at the Metro Court. Carly uses A.J. by making out with him in order to deter Todd from being with her. He is able to plant a camera inside a stuffed bunny and has it delivered to Carly's daughter Josslyn, making them believe it's from her father Jax in Australia. Todd watched Carly and A.J. and finds out that they are just acting, and not actually dating. He goes over to Carly's and reveals that he knows the truth. A.J. confesses and walks out. Todd then kisses and makes out with Carly, but Carly stops it and dumps him for good. Todd's daughter Dani then calls him distressed, and Todd leaves to return to Llanview to help her, but not before dropping Starr in LA.

Return to One Life to Live

With the reboot of One Life to Live on April 29, 2013, Todd returned to the screen once again in Llanview.  Todd was featured in most of the episodes that aired from April to August 2013 (OLTL first season online).  Todd's actor played intermittently as Todd and then his new character on GH as a recast of Franco, but now due to OLTL's long break it appears like Roger Howarth is back on GH full-time.
