Maurice Benard Calls Bringing Vanessa Marcil Back to General Hospital "a No-Brainer"

General Hospital'Maurice Benard (Sonny) wants his character's true love back in Port Charles. He told Soaps In Depth that he'd welcome former co-star Vanessa Marcil (Brenda) back any time.

Brenda and Sonny's current wife, Carly (Laura Wright), share so much history - and more than a few exes besides Sonny, including Jax (Ingo Rademacher). So revisiting that tension by featuring all four characters on screen would make a ton of sense.

Benard added:

You [brought] back Jax, then you got Brenda, and you got a whole cool thing going on.
