General Hospital Spoilers: Here’s What You Need To Know About Joshua Benard’s New Character
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Joshua made it no secret that he really likes his new character. “I like characters that have a lot going on underneath them, characters that are intricate,” he says.
Joshua also said that working with Eden has been nothing but smooth sailing so far. “Eden’s great! Everyone was saying that we had great chemistry on-screen, and I think we do. I think she’s a great actress and it was cool working with her because it was free-flowing. With Eden, it was just easy. I just met her on set and we did it, no rehearsal, no nothing. It was very fun, very quick, and you have to get it [right]. You have to be on your toes; there’s no messing around!” he enthused.
Now, as far as whether or not his famous father gives him any acting tips, Joshua revealed, “My dad was on set, but he was doing another scene. He doesn’t usually give me advice with acting. Sometimes I say, ‘Just tell me something! Tell me whatever!’ and he’s like, ‘No, if I don’t need to, that means you’re doing good.’ That day, he didn’t give me anything, but the first time I was on, I was like, ‘Oh, shoot, how do I hold a gun?’ It was a big day, there were a lot of people there, and I was a bit nervous. But this day was just super-chill and fun. I wasn’t really nervous at all. My dad was on set, but he was doing another scene.”
