“You ain’t seen nothing yet,” Benard posted. “Great dinner with my friend Eric Braden, thanks to Stephen A. Smith.”
GH fans will recognize sports reporter and massive GH fan Smith from his occasional appearances as Sonny’s surveillance expert Brick. Benard has made a couple appearances on Smith’s ESPN series FIRST TAKE, the most recent on March 24. And Braeden was a guest on the show back on February 8, a visit that led to a hilarious video where the daytime legend tried his hand at impersonating Smith and vice versa!
Smith shared his own photo of the meal, declaring it a “power dinner with the two biggest soap opera icons.” And Braeden described the dinner as “three no B.S. people, breaking bread and exchanging life stories!”
“Great conversation last night, Maurice!” Braeden declared on Twitter. “Enjoyed it a lot!”
Benard responded, “It seemed like getting together with friends from the past. Thank you, guys.”
The idea of Sonny Corinthos and Victor Newman meeting blew the minds of soap fans who imagined seeing Emmy-winning actors Benard and Braeden performing opposite one another. And we can’t help but hope that Braeden, who recently penned a memoir titled I’ll Be Damned, sparked the idea in Benard’s head to write his own life story for posterity!
