Joshua Benard will be back on “General Hospital” this month, revealed his father Maurice Benard who plays Sonny Corinthos on the daytime drama series. The younger Benard last appeared in the Wednesday, March 16 episode as Adam, a PCU classmate of Josslyn’s (Eden McCoy) who said some insensitive things to her following the revelation of her and Cameron’s (William Lipton) first time being filmed without their consent and shared online. In 2018, he played a younger version of his father’s character in flashbacks.
The younger Benard was a guest on his father’s popular podcast, “MB: State of Mind,” which features guests talking about mental health and mental health awareness. Previous guests have included several current and past “GH” stars, including Laura Wright (Carly), Tyler Christopher (ex-Nikolas), Kimberly McCullough (ex-Robin), and “The Talk’s” Sheryl Underwood, among other daytime vets.
“Joshua and I talk life and his passions and how they each mean so much to him in different ways,” said Benard in describing what fans will see in the latest episode of his series. “Acting, singing, composing and playing music. He’s always expressing himself through it. He plays a little guitar for us at the end, but as the conversation ended I thought to myself we are so similar in so many ways, which may be why we clash at times, but I am so damn proud of him.”
In addition to returning to “GH,” the younger Benard is set to have a mysterious HBO project air this summer on the service and he’ll be releasing his first single soon.
