General Hospital – My Favorite Soap Opera
I’ve loved General Hospital star Maurice Benard ever since I was a teenager. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that over thirty years later, I’d have the honor of interviewing the three-time Emmy award winner and New York Times best selling author!
Maurice is revered for his illustrious career, however, his most important roles are that of a husband, a father, and a mental health advocate who is a beacon of hope to millions on his YouTube Channel, State of Mind.
General Hospital star talks cerebral palsy, mental health + more!
In this interview, we talked about why he decided to become an advocate for cerebral palsy, his journey with bipolar disorder, the need and importance for more disability representation in Hollywood, “Sonny” + much more! You’ll enjoy learning about the man behind the mob boss.
You’ll also find out how I got to interview this beloved actor, advocate, his nationality (contrary to popular belief he’s NOT Italian), the importance of the Alzheimer’s storyline, and his favorite shows to watch on t.v. What’s the story behind the photo he shared in his IG stories with the hashtag #GoGreen4CP? You’ll learn about that, too!
