Chad Duell and Maurice Benard
Sonny and Michael Corinthos were played by Maurice Benard and Chad Duell on General Hospital, however Duell wasn’t the first actor to perform this character.
Several performers came and departed as Michael grew older, and it took some time for Benard to adjust to the changes.
He said that he wasn’t particularly friendly to Duell at first since he was loyal to Drew Garret, who had previously performed this position. Benard acknowledged that Duell grew on him and that they became close like a true father and son.
