Our Favorite Mobster, Sonny Corinthos; Maurice Benard Sticking Around General Hospital

On September 23,¬†General Hospital Blog¬†reported that actor Maurice Benard who has played Port Charles top dog when it comes to the mob- and women, Sonny Corinthos, since 1993, may be leaving General Hospital to pursue other opportunities. According to Soaps in Depth magazine, it was noted that Benard had not yet signed a contract with ABC’s General Hospital to renew his current status with the show.

However, in a brief conversation with fans, Maurice had a different tune in regard to his plans for his future at General Hospital.

Sonny Corinthos fans can sleep easier tonight, knowing that the talented actor will be staying at General Hospital, a place that he calls, “home.” Benard will manage to stay at GH while expanding his horizons and working on other projects. His most recent project, The Ghost and the Whale, will be available for pre-order very soon.

Happy Anniversary Maurice Benard!

The legendary actor, Maurice Benard and his phenomenal character, Sonny Corinthos is celebrating 20 years at General Hospital!

General Hospital Blog would like to thank Maurice for all his hard work and dedication to the American classic soap opera. The longest running Daytime Soap Opera, General Hospital, wouldn’t be what it is today without this amazing actor and his portrayal of Mob Boss/family man, Sonny Corinthos.

We love to be entertained by his multifaceted acting abilities and will take whatever GH will throw at us as long as Sonny is involved.

Congratulations Maurice! To many, many more!

Happy 20 years!
