Sonny's nationality????

Postby gbiondo » Mon Jul 07, 2008 4:01 pm

Does anyone know what nationality Sonny Corinthos is supposed to be?? Is it Italian or Columbian, Spanish, Mexican, or another kind of Latin character

I thought he was spanish -- but now with the Italian Zacchara family -- i am hoping he is an Italian mobster -- i wish he would speak italian on the show.
It would be really cool if he spoke that languange fluently on the show.

Adela was Puerto Rican, and Mike is white so Sonny is Puerto Rican/White.

I think you are thinking of Maurice Benard, the actor, not the character of Sonny Corinthos.

Sonny's character has spoken lines from time to time in Spanish and reference has been made to Adela's nationality, however I swear that there has been mention of Sonny being Italian. What about all that Italian cooking he boasts? I think these writers just throw things around sometimes :~

I checked wikepedia and no mention of him being Italian. I wonder if his Italian cooking skills goes back to being raised in Brooklyn... and if I remember correctly... he was a regular at that Italian restaurant.

hey luv,
careful of that tricky wikepedia....the editing of wikepedia is very loosely regulated.....there is frequently misinformation on that site....especially w/ fictional characters....so anyway.....I know it doesn't mention it, but I am almost sure that the whole Brooklyn thing was that he was Italian?????? Ok, so now I'm probably harping on this but it's totally bugging me......
