Greetings on this attractive General Hospital actor’s birthday!
Sonny Corinthos is working hard on General Hospital to help Nina Reeves in her fight to prevent her daughter’s cancer-related death. Actor Maurice Benard is busy marking a significant milestone in the real world.
Happy Birthday, Maurice Benard
That’s because this seasoned performer is celebrating his 60th birthday today! He was born on March 1, 1963, in Martinez, California! Benard, born Mauricio Jose Morales, debuted in 1987 as a member of the ensemble of the ABC daily soap All My Children.
After that, he made several television movies, including Her Wicked Ways, Lucy and Desi: Before The Laughter (as Desi Arnaz), Ruby, and Mi Vida Loca, as well as nighttime segments of the shows DEA, Stat, and Dark Justice.
He made his General Hospital début on August 13, 1993 as the underling of Frank Smith who owns a strip club, Sonny Corinthos, a role he has continued to portray ever since. He received nine Daytime Emmy nods for the part, and he won three of them, including Outstanding Lead Actor in 2003, 2019, and 2021.
Since Sonny was diagnosed with bipolar illness in the mid-1990s, Benard’s real-life condition has been depicted on film. Since their union on August 11, 1990, he and Paula Smith have been the parents of four kids: three girls and one boy.
To Face Her History, Operation Splitsville, Restraining Order, Crystal Clear, Confession, The Penny, The Spirit and the Whale, and Victoria Gotti: My Father’s Daughter are just a few of the actor’s other notable roles. Off-screen, he has been inspiring a lot of people with his video audio programme on mental health, State Of Mind.
