General Hospital Leads Anthony Geary and Maurice Benard Talk Soap's Reprieve!


On the heels of General Hospital's pardon from ABC, two of the daytime drama's leading men, Anthony Geary and Maurice Benard, spoke with TV Guide'sMichael Logan about the current state of GH. Said Geary:


For the last year or two we've been living on death row hoping for a reprieve, so this feels great. We're all breathing a sigh of relief, although we don't really know what this all means.

Added Benard:

"For all we know, we've only bought ourselves six months," notes GH star Maurice Benard (Sonny). But that's not stopping the celebration on the set. "It's a beautiful day in Port Charles!" Benard says. "Everyone's excited and we're determined to work hard and keep this thing going. Our goal now is to boost our ratings and be the No. 1 soap. Then they can't cancel us!"
