General Hospital’s Marcus Coloma Opens Up About Mental Health On Maurice Benard’s Podcast
General Hospital spoilers and updates tease that Marcus Coloma made a guest appearance on Maurice Benard’s podcast, State of Mind. The actor talked about mental health, previous relationships, childhood, and more.
Fans know Coloma as Nikolas Cassadine in the daytime drama. Viewers got to know him on a deeper level during his candid conversation with Benard last January 2, 2022.
Becoming A Better Actor
Coloma shared that before he joined General Hospital, he had a good year. He shot a huge commercial and an ABC pilot in Dallas.
He worked only four days for the entire year. He realized that he can’t become a great actor if he only works four days a year. He was excited to be a part of General Hospital not because he wanted to act for the financial security but because he wants to move people with his craft. Not only that, he was ecstatic to work with Benard.
Mental Health Struggles
He grew up in Utah and moved to California. He shared that his mother got pregnant early. When he was a child, he didn’t know how to talk to people. He was super anxious and got depressed during his teenage years. He added that he also had suicidal thoughts.
Benard, given his history, was able to relate to Coloma. The latter said he used to ask what made a person worthy or valuable. When Benard asked if he found the answer to the question, the actor answered that he did, but several years later.

Jordan and Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) fell apart because she didn’t want a layman helping, but Marcus will gladly come out of retirement to help his daughter! […]
