Even after leaving General Hospital in 2013, Vanessa Marcil has maintained friendship with Maurice Benard, and she loves talking about her former co-star.

In a live chat with fans via Coastal Entertainment, Vanessa Marcil spilled some beans on Maurice Benard that fans probably didn’t know.

She revealed that Maurice Benard has always been “hilariously funny,” which isn’t something that many fans were able to see before.

“He was always so serious all the time and kind of quite tortured because he’s such a method actor, but he’s always been hilariously funny,” Marcil shared. It’s like Benard has come out of his shell and able to embrace his funny side, and Marcil thinks fans love to see this personality in real-life that’s in total contrast with the characters he plays on TV.

Marcil also shared another interesting trivia about Benard. “Mo has never ever had his own phone or his own cars, he doesn’t — he’s kind of like royalty,” she said jokingly. “He doesn’t drive, he doesn’t email, he doesn’t talk on the phone, he’s just starting to go into that area.”

General Hospital Updates – Should Vanessa Marcil Return To General Hospital?

When asked whether she should come back to General Hospital, Vanessa Marcil gave quite a positive response. “I will eventually, like there’s no way that it won’t happen,” she said.

She shared that she’s grateful for GH for giving her the first shot and that she’ll always be happy to come back.

“I just love that character so much. She’s such a multilayered, incredible character that I think was very ahead of her time,” she added. “And the fact that Maurice is always still there, you know, makes it a no-brainer because I couldn’t go back and work opposite a Sonny recast or some of these crazy things that happened to some characters.”

Vanessa Marcil originated the character of Branda Barrett in 1992. She’s been on and off the soap over the years until, in 2013, she left for Europe after her engagement with Jax was called off.
