What is it about Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Brenda (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo) that has General Hospital viewers wanting more? TV Guide'sMichael Logan gets the skinny from the dimpled dapper don, Maurice Bernard.

TV Guide Magazine: What is it about these two ridiculously dysfunctional characters that so transfixes the audience?

Benard: Despite all their problems and their crazy history, there is a very real and deep love between Sonny and Brenda and the audience sees that. The fans want to believe that kind of love is still possible these days. We're talking about two really screwed up people who are both there for each other. They take care of each other in a way no one else can. Both are really fragile. Sonny tries to play tough and all that but underneath he is really just a scared little boy. They understand each other because they're both so damaged. I think a lot of that comes from how Vanessa and I feel about each other as people.
