Tell me about Maurice Benard on General Hospital. He is such a good actor.
—Roberta Johnson, Madison, Wis.

"I try to keep myself challenged as much as I can," says Benard, who is in his 15th year as mobster Sonny Corinthos on daytime's durable General Hospital. When he's off the set, he enjoys boxing. "I'm actually thinking about managing an incredible 17-year-old boxer. That would be another challenge." Benard also is a spokesman for bipolar disorder, a condition he was diagnosed with in his early 20s. He lives in California with his wife and five kids.
