Maurice Benard Reflects On Breakdown That Almost Made Him Quit GH!
In one of the YouTube episodes of his series State of Mind, Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital)) spoke about nearly quitting the show after his third mental health breakdown. In this episode, his guess was none other than Mark Teschner who is the casting director for the ABC daytime soap opera. The two spoke about the soap’s decision to stand by Benard during that difficult time. Benard said thanks for “the loyalty that you showed me two to three weeks after I had my third nervous breakdown”. Teschner stated, “There was a sense of, ‘okay, let’s work with Maurice to help him navigate as much as we can’, and I think when you came back, I think work became a real anchor for you”.
