Can Nina and Sonny’s Love Survive? — Cynthia Watros Speaks Out!
It hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing for Sonny and Nina since they got together, but recent events on GENERAL HOSPITAL are really putting their relationship to the test! After the attempt on Sonny’s life, he has ordered everyone he loves to keep their distance from him for their own safety, and unfortunately for Nina, that includes her as well.
“She doesn’t like it,” Cynthia Watros (Nina) explained in a recent issue of Soap Opera Digest. “That hurts her heart, but also, she can understand it.”
Nina also has to keep in mind that it’s not just herself that she needs to protect from Sonny’s dangerous line of work. “There is a lot of conflict for Nina because it’s not only her now,” the actress mused. “She has a daughter, even though that daughter doesn’t want to spend a lot of time with her.
“And she does have other family that she cares about,” Watros continued. “She’s got Maxie, she’s got James… she’s starting to get this whole little group of family members. So she’s worried about what this could cost them, Sonny being in the mob.”
When Nina first fell in love with Sonny, he was living as Mike in Nixon Falls, but her feelings didn’t change once he regained his memories and returned to his life in Port Charles. “Nina always knew what Sonny did for a living,” Watros admitted, “but she sort of stuck her head in the sand a little bit when they got back from Nixon Falls because she loves him so much.”
Carly had no problem with Sonny’s life in the mob and even stepped in to help take over his business when he was presumed dead. But can Nina find the strength to do the same or will fear turn out to be stronger than love? Share your opinion in our online poll below and stay tuned to GH to see what happens next!
