The life and times of Sonny Corinthos are explored in a new interview with the man himself, Maurice Benard (Sonny) of General Hospital!
TV Insider’s Michael Logan chatted with the man who is the main resident mobster in Port Charles, who is celebrating his 23rd year on the long-running ABC daytime drama series. While mob stories are always a hot button issue for fans of the show, many want it less mob-centric, while some love Sonny doing his thing, Benard weighed in on the question of what he thinks over the years has been Sonny’s worst crime.
Benard revealed: “Shooting Michael’s (Chad Duell) father, A.J. Quartermaine. (Sean Kanan) It was the absolute worst thing Sonny ever did. But even that he managed to justify in his head. And then, after the funeral, Sonny and Ava (Maura) had sex in the Quartermaine crypt. Now that was pushing the envelope. But it was good.”
As for Sonny’s latest foe, Julian Jerome (William deVry), the Daytime Emmy winner revealed there are some scenes coming up where he and Will deVry throw down: “Sonny is scared—really, truly scared—for the first time in his life because of Julian Jerome. But it’s not like Sonny admits it. We just finished shooting scenes that had me thinking, ‘Wow. This is serious s–t. This Julian guy is a psychopath!’ I think he’d slit Sonny’s throat—and probably his eyeballs—if he ever got the chance.”‘
