General Hospital Spoilers: Maurice Hints That He Might Retire By Next Year!

During a recent episode of his mental health series State of mind, Maurice suggested that he might be ready to leave the canvas sooner rather than later. In fact, it seems like retirement is on his mind more than anything else. “I’m really happy right now. If you know me, you know it’s in waves how happy I am on General Hospital. Up and down, up and down,” he said.

If that weren’t enough, Maurice also added, “Acting isn’t what it was when I was young. Sometimes it’s difficult and it hits me in places to act that I don’t like. But right now, I’m really happy on GH.” 

It’s also interesting to note that Maurice will be celebrating his 30th anniversary on the show by next year. And because he’s already accomplished so much, he believes that this would be the best time for him to hang up his hat. “Soon enough, I’ll be done with it. Sorry. I hate to say that, but it’s the truth.”

There’s no doubt that General Hospital fans are sure going to have a lot to say about this as Port Charles won’t be the same without Sonny Corinthos in it, right?
