GH Spoilers: Working with Bipolar Disorder
In fact, it was recently revealed that the show bosses at General Hospital were aware of Benard’s Bipolar disorder diagnosis. Like many with the condition, he went into a manic phase within his first three weeks on the show, then took a nosedive into a depression. However, they worked with him and many years later, he is not only still on the show, but the man who plays Sonny Corinthos is a fan favorite.
General Hospital news teases that when Maurice first joined the show, he had some tension with Laura Wright. In fact, on Instagram, the actor outright said that he was not on good terms with the actress.
“… when I first met @welcometolaurasworld, [we were] not on great terms. Why? You have to read the book. Laura came on GH with both guns blazing, took no prisoners and made Carly her very own.”
Of course, the two get along great now.
