Losing Morgan gave Maurice Benard (Sonny) all the feels!
Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Laura Wright (Carly) loved digging deep for the heartbreaking tale of Morgan’s death… but are relieved to be on the other side of it! “We’ve just had to live it,” Benard explained at the GH Convention. “You don’t act it — you just gotta be in that moment. Laura was over-living it, so it wasn’t hard acting with her. It was also easy because it was right there in the writing. Also, Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan) left and that was hard for me.” Benard’s co-star was on the same, conflicted page. “It’s not a story any mother really wants to tell,” Wright confessed. “It’s great, but it’s a hard one. It was so well-written, it was so real and the cast came in and delivered. I get very emotional over that stuff, because it’s real to us. Our bodies don’t know we’re faking if we bring up real emotion. It was a long road. I definitely needed a beach vacation after all that!”
Benard and Wright gave their all to mourning Morgan.
