Maurice Benard spoke with Michael Fairman at Michael Fairman Soaps about General Hospital's teen abuse storyline and how Kristina's (Lexi Ainsworth) abuse is reminding Sonny of his childhood.
“This train is rolling really great, and it’s not going to stop. The story that I am really praising is when Kristina gets beat up, (and I have not seen it), but doing it with the actors was unreal. When I saw Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina) with the bruises, it was like the feelings I would have with my own daughter. Sonny takes off on this whole thing and then goes on to remember his own abuse and how his step-father would beat him, and put him in the closet, and he how he would beat his mother, too.”
