Fans of “General Hospital” star Maurice Benard will get a double helping of the actor when he appears on both the daytime drama series as Sonny Corinthos and its lead-in “GMA3: What You Need to Know” as himself on Wednesday, March 30.
The actor and author (“Nothing General About It: How Love (and Lithium) Saved Me On and Off General Hospital”) will be discussing mental health, bipolar, anxiety and depression, among other topics.
In a video teasing his appearance, Benard notes he’ll also be talking about his YouTube series, “MB: State of Mind,” which features co-star Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) in the Sunday, April 3 episode. Additionally, he expects to be discussing his current storyline involving the triangle between Carly (Laura Wright), Sonny and Nina (Cynthia Watros).
In addition to Benard, look for New York City Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Ashwin Vasan; actress Jamie Lee Curtis and co-author Barney Saltzberg (“What Do You See?”); and Deals and Steals with ABC e-commerce editor Tory Johnson.
Note: A rep for ABC News confirms that Benard’s appearance will air during “GMA3” and not “Good Morning America” as referenced in the video below.
“GMA3: What You Need to Know” airs Weekdays at 1:00 p.m. ET/12:00 p.m. PT on ABC.
