Carly Corinthos Jacks on the ABC Television Network's "General Hospital"
Laura Wright joined the cast of "General Hospital" in November 2005 as Carly Corinthos Alcazar.
Born September 11th in Washington DC and raised Clinton MD, Wright was hit by the acting bug in the eighth grade. She performed in many high school plays such as "Gypsy," "Our Town" and "You Can't Take It With You." She also has a director's credit for the production of "Father Says No." In addition she has few local commercials and numerous fashion shows under her belt.
After being persuaded to audition for the daytime drama "Loving," Wright seriously considered a career in acting and, as luck would have it, was cast of in the ABC Daytime drama. She went on to play the role of Ally Rescott Bowman for four years, and later in its spin-off, "The City."
Wright debuted on "Guiding Light" in August of 1997. There for eight years, she played the role of ex-stripper Cassie Layne. This street smart character won Wright a 1998 Soap Opera Digest Award for Best New Character. And in the same year, she was named one of TV Guide's rising stars in daytime.
In 2012 she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in the category of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
Wright resides in the Santa Barbara area with architect husband John and two children, daughter Lauren Elizabeth and son John Michael, where they recently opened a vineyard. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family, especially watching late-night television with her husband.
