The character of Carly Corinthos Jacks (Caroline Benson) is nothing short of legendary. The daughter of Port Charles vet, Bobbie Spencer, Carly first came to the scene in 1996 when she was portrayed by the talented actress, Sarah Joy Brown until 2001. When Brown left General Hospital to pursue other projects, the lovely Tamara Braun took over the role and stole our hearts until 2005. Jennifer Bransford briefly stepped in to the role just before Laura Wright took over as Carly in 2005.
Carly has been linked to many love interests including Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), Jason Quartermaine/Morgan (Steve Burton/Billy Miller), Lorenzo Alcazar (Ted King), Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher), and Robert Frank/Franco (Roger Howarth). Most fans agree that Carly’s relationship with Sonny is one for the books as Carly and Sonny aka CarSon has been named a Daytime Super couple throughout the years.
Today the wonderfully talented Laura Wright celebrates 9 years of being with General Hospital. Time sure does fly, as it seems like yesterday we saw Laura debut as Carly in the “train wreck” episode.
