“General Hospital” star Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) will welcome actress Sarah Joy Brown as his first guest of 2023 for his podcast series “State of Mind with Maurice Benard.” The episode will be released Sunday, January 1 on the show’s YouTube channel.
Details of what the two discussed in the episode was unknown at press time.
Appearing in numerous daytime dramas, including “As The World Turns,” “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “Days of our Lives,” Brown is probably best known for her three-time Daytime Emmy Award winning portrayal as Carly Corinthos on “General Hospital.” She originated the role in 1996 and remained part of the show’s cast until 2001. From 1999 until her departure, Brown worked alongside Benard as they helped create the supercouple known as “S&C” or “CarSon.” In 2007, Brown returned to “General Hospital” as a new character named Claudia Zacchara, a mob princess who also was romantically involved with Benard’s Sonny character. Outside of daytime soaps, Brown has also starred in such shows as “V.R. Troopers,” “Cold Case,” “Beacon Hills,” and more recently, “Studio City,” among others.
“State of Mind with Maurice Benard” is the only podcast series where fans can watch their favorite daytime stars, past and present, discuss important issues, particularly relating to mental health. As explained by Benard, “[‘State of Mind’] means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.”
On Sunday, January 8, Benard’s much anticipated discussion with co-stars Cameron Mathison (Drew), Laura Wright (Carly) and Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) from the iconic Graceland is set to air. The episode, which is being released in honor of Elvis Presley’s birthday, was taped in late October when the show brought cast members back to Memphis for the first time since pre-pandemic. The episode will also include a surprise guest who will leave Benard speechless.
