Buzzcast Flashback: GH's Maurice Benard
January 15, 2014•15 min
Our flashback podcast this week features Maurice Benard of ABC Daytime's "General Hospital." The actor has been a part of the cast since 1993, and celebrated several milestones: his 50th birthday, the show's 50th anniversary, as well as Benard's 20th anniversary at "GH." Benard weighed in on how the character of Sonny has changed since Ron Carlivati and Frank Valentini took the helm in 2012:
"The quality of what I'm doing and the way Sonny is balanced now, I like him as a person. I see that he is supporting his girl, he loves her to death, and it's not like it's something he has been doing for two days. It's been constant of him being the supportive boyfriend. He still kicks butt, but now there are two sides to him."
Benard also filmed a movie entitled, "The Ghost and the Whale," which he also shared and spoke about as well:
"It's a beautiful script. It's about a fisherman whose wife died. He tries to figure out why she died. Maybe he killed, maybe not. We start shooting in January (of 2013), and it's a great script."
