Daytime Emmy winner Maurice Benard (Sonny), who has given us powerful performances Friday and today on General Hospital, spoke with our pal, Sara Bibel over at Fancast about the huge Dante/Sonny revelation scene, working with Dominic Zamprogna (Dante), what to look forward to as Sonny looks to be facing trial, and the lady loves in the mobsters long and winding road of romance.

Maurice on what is going to happen to Sonny during February Sweeps: “What’s interesting is as soon as [Sonny] shot him, the next week I was sick as a dog.  So it’s really going to look like Sonny was whacked out.  That wasn’t method acting.  That was me being really sick.  So I have these great scenes I don’t remember with Olivia, with Dante.  I’ve got to tell you, everyone on GH, not just my storyline, they’re actually doing some really great, great work.  It’s special to be on the show right now for me.  I’m watching other people now.”

Maurice on Sonny’s greatest love: “You’ve got to say Brenda.  And then you’ve got to say Carly because she’s the mother of his children and then Brenda because that was his first real big love. The thing about Sonny is when he loves, he loves.  He loved Emily.  He loved Kate.  I think those are the only other two.  He doesn’t just say, “I love you.”  He means it when he says it.”

Maurice on the semi-annual rumor report of a Vanessa Marcil (Brenda) return to GH:  “I don’t know if it will happen.  Those talks keep going on and on.  I know Sonny needs a girl because he hasn’t had one.  Claudia was just kind of a thing that happened.  It was not romantic.  So if Vanessa comes back it would be great for me, but we’ll see.”

Oh Maurice you “FINALLY”told the truth, Brenda I was not into GH that much, Carly oh yes the love that keeps being re-written untill it bores. BUT KATE that was a love story, Bogie & Bacall, the Tough & the Classy, Oh how I hope GH brings them back togather, Maurice was Classy, Sexy, and best of all Fun, with Megan he rocked with LLC its a flat tire, no chemistry, and worst of all unbelievable how I hope Dante is NOT SONNY’S Son” now that would be and un-expected twist, to the predictable s/l being pushed down the viewers throats….

Sonny NEEDS a woman, NOT a girl. Sonny’s too old to be talking about needing a girl. No wonder he’s still so immature chasing all the women, oh I mean girls. Heck, he even hooked up with Emily. Nasty!

GH Head Writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor Reveal More Details On Michael E. Knight’s New Soap Role

When daytime favorite Michael E. Knight debuts on General Hospital on September 30th, he will not be coming to Port Charles as his former All My Children alter-ego Tad Martin; but instead will be playing a different character.

EW.com has first look photo of Knight in his new role and spoke directly to General Hospital co-head writers, Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor for the scoop on the ever-popular Knight’s return to ABC.  On GH. Michael will indeed play a new role.

According to the scribes: “There are a number of people in Port Charles who are in trouble and his character will have an impact on how their stories are solved or further complicated.”

Both Van Etten and O’Connor shared: “As we were writing his character, we found out that oh, we have even more use for him! It’s helpful to know who the actors are in this situation. We have lots of ideas on how we can expand his character and cross-pollinate his character.”

As to how long Knight will be sticking around Port Charles, that was not offered-up, but what was is that Michael’s new character will mix it up with Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) with whom Knight worked with on All My Children when James played Will Cortlandt.

Because ABC now has the rights back in their possession to use the characters from One Life to Live and All My Children, Van Etten expressed: “We have conversations when we have these actors come back about whether it’s more useful or not to resurrect their characters. “=We’ll continue to have these as the opportunity arises.”

So, what do you think Michael E. Knight’s role will be based on these tidbits from the GH scribe? Share your theories via the comment section below.

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”
