General Hospital News Update: Maurice Benard Needs YOUR Help

General Hospital Maurice BenardGeneral Hospital Maurice Benard

Three months in quarantine have resulted in new looks for some of our favorite soap stars. While some actors have grown beards they may or may not keep, General Hospital favorite Maurice Benard has gone a little salt and pepper with his hair — as well as his beard.

Maurice Benard: A New Look?

However, he’s not sure if he should keep things that way or go with the Sonny Corinthos look we are all used to, so he took to Instagram for some advice.

The actor posted a selfie of his new look, sporting a San Francisco 49ers shirt, asking simply: “GREY yes/no? @49ers @sfgiants @giantsgirl25 @generalhospitalabc.”

Well, a few of Benard’s former love interests immediately chimed in with their take. Vanessa Marcil, who played Brenda (arguably the love of Sonny’s life) gave a resounding “YES!” while Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) added, “Unquestionably YES! A true silver 🦊!!🔥👏”

A few years back, Sonny grew a beard after being shot and spending months paralyzed in a wheelchair and the actor also asked social media fans if he should keep the facial hair. He eventually decided to shave it but is still looking for your input.

So, what do you think, GH fans, should Benard keep the grey or return to the Port Charles scene looking exactly as we last saw him in May? Let us know in the comments below or comment right on the actor’s post.

General Hospital History

GH made its debut in 1963 and is the second longest-running daytime soap opera in American history. The longest-running sudser is Guiding Light. While it’s not the longest-running sudser, General Hospital is the longest-running soap opera currently on air.

The daytime drama outlasted other soaps to become a mainstay for many households! From Luke (Tony Geary) and Laura’s (Genie Francis) gripping romance and wedding, to Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and his mobster activities, GH knows how to please their viewers.

Bringing the Drama

More than five decades of gripping drama has kept the daytime sudser on the air as other soap operas were axed. It is one of only four remaining soap operas currently on the air. The other three daytime dramas include Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless (YR), and The Bold and the Beautiful (BB). GH airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for air times.
