General Hospital Favorite Renews Contract!

There has been a lot of back and forth regarding a certain GH character in regards to the actor’s status with GH. Earlier in the year, it was unclear if he would re-sign his contract due to involvement in other projects. This year he has been working on a very large project wich took much of his focus.

Today it has been announced that fan favorite and Port Charles’ most legendary mobster, Sonny Corinthos will be sticking around. Maurice Benard has sign a contract with ABC’s General Hospital, continuing his current status with the daytime drama.

It looks like Sonny won’t be leaving the show after all which is a huge relief for GH fans.

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.

Maurice Benard’s New Film: ‘The Ghost and the Whale’ Trailer

Hi all! I know I don’t typically post about outside projects or what the actors are doing in their personal lives, (except Kelly Monaco and DWTS), but I felt that Maurice’s  amazing work should be recognized. Not only is he a General Hospital vet who we can’t imagine the show without, his talents exceed more than what we see every day at 2PM. It’s apparent in his work that he is an extremely talented actor. His multifaceted artistic talents never cease to amaze. Now GH’s favorite mobster, Sonny Corinthos, played by Maurice Benard, is stepping into a new role in a film called “The Ghost and the Whale.” We are very excited to get to see him in another project along with his work on General Hospital. Check out the 30 second trailer of the film!
