ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Star Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos) Shares What It Felt Like To Finally Say Good Riddance To Nelle
When asked how it felt like to shoot those pivotal scenes, Carly puts it this way, “Oh, it was great. It was a great ending to Nelle/Carly, quite frankly. It had to be something big and fantastic like that, great argument scenes, and then, when she runs off, great fight scenes where we had two great stunt doubles. Chloe [Lanier, ex-Nelle] and I watched them — we watched ‘Carly’ knock her down and ‘Nelle’ kick ‘Carly’ in the face and we were like, ‘Ooh, that looked great!’ I just remember my days of being super-excited to do stunts and I watched that and I went, ‘Uh, no. I am so glad I’m not doing that anymore!’ I mean, tackling to the ground? That would have hurt so bad! And I would have done that! That was something I did, for sure, on GUIDING LIGHT [as Cassie] and [earlier] on GENERAL HOSPITAL. And Chloe’s smart! She’s like, ‘No, I’m good [not doing the stunt].’ I was like, ‘You are so smart!’ Why didn’t I do that at her age? I was doing it all, and we’re not trained for that!”
If that weren’t enough, Carly says that the aftermath also has Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacker) right back into the mix with Carly and her husband, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).
Carly puts it this way, “Yes! And Nina being annoyed because Carly’s always around, which is so funny. We laugh about it all the time [on set]. That scene when I was toasting to being happy and raising a glass and touching Jax’s arm in the Metro Court and Nina’s looking at it, we added that. I was supposed to do something that made her look, but I said, ‘What if I laugh and I just put my hand on his arm and I’m like, “Oh, my God, Jax!” and just make it more personal?’ And Cynthia [Watros, Nina] was laughing and was like, ‘Yes, yes, do that!’ It just gives us more funny, big moments to play that cause Nina to go, ‘Ugh, here’s Carly again!’”
