Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) are a super couple on General Hospital. They’ve been through a lot, but they are always meant to be with each other. But here’s a newcomer, D.A. Margaux (Elizabeth Hendrickson), who’s becoming a threat to Sonny and Carly’s forever. How does that sound for Maurice Benard who portrays the mobster?
Maurice Opens Up About Margaux Connection
In an interview with Parade, Benard says that while he wants to keep Sonny and Carly together forever, he admits that the is a fan of Margaux and Sonny as well. “I think it adds spice, which is needed,” he added.
However, he does not think that Margaux and Sonny’s relationship should go too far and more than friendship. “I don’t think they should sleep together, but I think they should have an emotional connection that is perceived differently from maybe other people,” he said.
When asked if he thinks a man and a woman can be “just” friends, Benard says that in soap opera, he’d say yes. But in real life, it depends on how close they are, but for Benard, he said he always says no.

Margaux Is Warming Up To Sonny
Initially, Margaux was repulsed by the mobster. But over time, her feelings for Sonny started to change, enough that she started to question her work and personal beliefs.
Margaux being in a love triangle with Sonny and Carly would surely create so much drama. Especially now that Sonny and Carly have another baby on the way, a surprise that nobody probably expected.
It’s been a while since the super couple got a storyline centered around just the two of them, so things are going to get exciting.
In a previous interview, Hendrickson also liked the idea of getting in the middle of Sonny and Carly’s relationship.
The Young and the Restless alum said, “I’ll take any opportunity to work with them. I know the fans would come after me, but sometimes, you have to shake things up. So if that’s the path these two characters go, I would love it!”
