Maurice Benard on Steve Burton's General Hospital Exit: "I May Cry Like a Little Girl Who Just Lost Her Puppy"By Jamey Giddens on August 29, 2012
Of all the loves of Jason Morgan's life, none can quite compare to the undying affection and loyalty he felt for his mob boss Sonny Corinthos on General Hospital. Maurice Benard took to Twitter to share just how emotional he could become, thanks to Steve Burton's upcoming exit. Tweeted Benard:
Maurice Benard is loving Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati's more "well-rounded" version of Sonny Corinthos, the dimpled mobster he's played on and off since 1993. In an interview with MSN, Benard said this about the "new" Sonny:
I love the way they've affected him. They're writing Sonny as a man, as opposed to a mafia guy or a killer with a good heart. He's just a well-rounded man. And he's still badass - I went off, today! Sonny just thinks a little more, especially with the woman he loves. He tries. And they tell me during scenes, "Not so big. Be more supportive." Wow, they never told me this, before. It's changed. I'm into it and I think, as far as I can see on twitter, [the fans are] all into it. A year ago, the fans on twitter hated everything I was doing. They hated the show. It was like, "Why is this happening? This is stupid!" Now, it’s all positive. READ MORE
