maurice benard general hospital 320 'General Hospital's' Maurice Benard: Sonny would take the fall for his kidsHow much of Sonny Corinthos’ life has he spent on trial?

The courtroom is like a second home to the beloved “General Hospital” character and fans have recently had the pleasure of watching him fight for his freedom once again.

This time, however, Sonny is an innocent man, being blamed for a murder that his son Michael actually committed.

Zap2it sat down with Maurice Bernard — the man behind the fictional mob boss — and asked him how far he thinks Sonny would go to protect his progeny.

“It’s a tough situation for him,” Benard explains in the clip below. “He’ll take the fall for his kids, but he also knows that if he goes to prison, he’ll die. Just because he’s claustrophobic and because there’s people in there who would probably try and kill him … He’s between a rock and a hard place.”

Check out the video for more from Benard on this dilemma, why he loves watching his onscreen sons work and who we have to kill to get Sonny back with Carly …
