General Hospital is a daytime soap opera that airs on ABC and has been for the last 55 years. It follows the lives of various fictional families in Port Charles including the Corinthos, the Quartermaines, the Cassadines, the Spencers et cetera.
And Carly Corinthos, portrayed by Laura Wright since 2005, is in one way or another associated to most of these families. For starters, she is the illegitimate daughter of Bobbie Spencer. She was at one time married to A.J. Quartermaine. And she’s married Sonny Corinthos, her current husband, four times!!
Makes you wonder, is Wright married in real life? Has she ever been divorced? Is she dating anyone? What’s her net worth? How old is she? Find out below.
Is Laura Wright leaving General Hospital?
In recent events in GH, Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier) has been manipulating Carly into doubting her sanity. And when she fell down the stairs during her baby shower, she accused Carly of pushing her. The latter pleads insanity and is, therefore, sent to Ferncliff Asylum.
As a result, fans feared that this marked the end for Wright on GH. She’s conquered way more trying situations. For instance, she’s a victim of kidnapping, was comatose after been shot, often finds herself caught up in dangerous feuds et cetera.
Oh! She’s been institutionalized before. Luckily, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) helped her get released. And history seems to repeat itself as he’s helping her once again. So it appears, Wright isn’t leaving General Hospital. And Carly might be set free sooner than you think.
