General Hospital’s Maurice Benard Reveals Unexpected Breakup

General Hospital (GH) spoilers and updates tease that Maurice Benard, who plays Sonny Corinthos on the soap, uploaded an adorable short clip where he calls on his animal friend, Buddy the Goat. Unfortunately, Buddy’s not in the mood.

Benard Shares Video With Buddy

In an Instagram post, Benard uploaded a video of him calling out to Buddy the Goat with a caption, “The question is have I lost my connection with BUDDY THE GOAT?” In the clip, the actor said he hasn’t seen Buddy in two weeks. He also explained that there are times when Buddy just doesn’t care about him at all, hence the hashtag of the post, “breakup.”

Benard did have an explanation why Buddy’s giving him the cold shoulder. “You know why he’s acting like this? ’Cause it’s late and I haven’t fed him.”

“He’s looking at me like, ‘Where’s my food?’. He doesn’t want anything to do with me right now,” the actor shared.

Fans and friends were quick to comment on his post. Ingo Rademacher said that Buddy is playing hard to get and said that Benard may have to do a lot of groveling. One fan chimed in and said Buddy has shunned him because he’s not Sonny, referring to his character’s current storyline wherein he’s living as Mike in Nixon Falls because of his amnesia. Fans are eager to find out what will happen once Sonny regains his memories.

Benard says “all hell is going to break loose”

Sonny occasionally gets flashes of his old life so it’s safe to say that he’ll eventually get back his memories. With his family, friends, and enemies doing a lot of things that won’t please him, Benard hints that “all hell is going to break loose” once Sonny remembers everything.

Sonny’s family and friends believe that he’s dead so they’re moving on with their lives especially Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright). Fans know that she’s marrying Sonny’s right-hand man, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton), not for personal but for business reasons.

Benard said that Sonny will think that “this is not a good thing” and fans can expect “a great fight when Sonny does return.”

Benard Loves Playing Mike

Nevertheless, Benard admitted that she’s having fun playing the role of Mike. His new character has a “different energy.” Sonny is dark while Mike is “calm, relaxed, and happy.”

Unfortunately, some fans aren’t having as much fun as Benard. Some of them would like to see Sonny back. The actor didn’t expect fans to be as vocal as they are now when it comes to wanting Sonny back on screen. It’s not that they hate Mike, it’s just that viewers would like to see the mob boss back to his old self.

  1. Sonny need to get his memory back ASAP and back home again. Stop this mob thing for good cause Sonny want a happy married plus happy family. His family needs him very much

  2. I think is not fair ABC GH people in charge using Maurice berard dealing with his rest from his isickenss and wanting to leave for a while and doing other idea for a while. and hope when he feels better and missing his fans of seeing him again would be great and worked together
