Benard is the son of Humberto and Martha and was born in Martinez, California, of Nicaraguan and Salvadorian heritage. Benard had a reputation for being a nuisance in high school, and he had little interest in schooling. He decided not to continue his schooling following matriculation and instead worked as a model and performed in local Bay Area theaters. His television career began in 1987, when he was cast in the television series “All My Children.”

Benard’s role as Nico Kelly in “All My Children” served as a springboard for his acting career, opening doors and increasing his net worth. He left the show after two years and went into filmmaking. Benard starred in the television movies “Her Wicked Ways” and “Lucy & Desi: Before the Laughter” in 1991 and 1992, respectively. In 1992, he starred in “Ruby,” then in 1993, he starred in “Mi Vida Loca.”

Benard landed another television drama series, “General Hospital,” in which he played one of the main characters, Sonny Corinthos, a mobster with bipolar disorder, after multiple guest appearances on shows including as “DEA,” “Stat,” and “Dark Justice.” Both the character and the show were huge hits, driving his career forward and increasing his wealth. His work on the show earned him many Emmy, Soap Opera Digest, and ALMA Award nominations, and he went on to win a few, most notably for his role on “General Hospital,” which he continues to play.

Benard is best recognized for his role in “General Hospital,” but he has also been in “Operation Splitsville,” “Crystal Clear,” “The Penny,” and, most recently, Jennifer Lawrence’s film “Joy.” All of these endeavors aided in the advancement of his profession and net worth.

Benard married his wife Paula in 1990 and they have four children. He also adopted his sister-in-law Heather Ann after his mother-in-law passed away unexpectedly. Benard is also recognized as a supporter of persons with bipolar disorder, having been diagnosed with the illness in his early twenties.

He’s a spokesperson for National Mental Health America, teaching people how to spot persons with bipolar disorder and how to aid them, as well as discussing his own experience with the illness. He has appeared on “Oprah,” “Entertainment Tonight,” and “The View,” among other conventions and television shows. Benard’s cause for people with bipolar disorder is still active today.
