General Hospital's Laura Wright Named Power Performance Of The Week!

This past week on General Hospital saw many gripping and heartbreaking moments as friends, families, and even some enemies, grappled with the news that Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) was shot and lost in the deep waters of Port Charles!  While the body was never recovered, for all intent and purposes, to most of the citizens of the town, he is believed to be dead.

However, the performance that to us stood out among all the rest was that of Laura Wright as Carly Corinthos Jacks, who tries to come to grips that her best friend, protector, and confidante, Jason, is gone!  In a stunning scene with Maurice Benard (Sonny), Carly is told by her ex that Jason has been shot and that he is gone.   At first her reaction is denial, then to lash out at Sonny who reveals he needs to go see Trey to try and get Kate/Connie committed. Carly angrily replies, “You have spent all of thirty minutes mourning the guy who dedicated his life to you!”  Ouch, that hit Sonny where it hurts.  Later in the scene, Carly realizes she is not being fair to Sonny and the two of them share a heartfelt sad moment grieving the loss of their dear friend.  Wright’s scenes continued on with remembering how Jason raised Michael as a child to a listening Todd Manning (Roger Howarth), and later in heart-tugging scenes talking to her son, Michael (Chad Duell) about the man that was so instrumental in their lives.

Once again, Laura Wright proves why she is one of the top actresses of the genre, who demonstrated through these scenes that she is adept and delivering raw, realistic, vulnerable and strong emotions, and just like Carly, made all of us at home mourn the loss of Jason! That is why On-Air On-Soaps is naming Laura Wright – The Power Performance of the Week!

After the jump, watch the key powerful scenes and let us know what you thought of Daytime Emmy winner Wright’s performance!  Could these scenes be her Emmy reel for next year?  Weigh-in!

I totally agree. Laura Wright (as Carly) did an incredible job of showing disbelief and then intense pain over the loss of her dearest friend, Jason. She certainly had me crying, her raw emotion is matched by none, and I do believe she can use these scenes to garner her an emmy nod for sure!!!! Kudos Laura Wright on a job VERY WELL DONE!!!!!

I am sorry i don’t agree with this. I saw Ms Wrights performance and while outstanding(and it most likely will be her Emmy reel) i felt the performance of Florencia Lozano who plays Tea Delgado on General Hospital was sensational!. She was riveting in the scenes with Roger Howarth in the police interrogation room when she asked him about the baby swap. She delivered a calm riveting tour DE force performance that i find sensational. She made me feel her pain at the loss of a child she thought was hers for four months and the anger and disappointment in… Read more »

Both ladies did well. But each had their scenes during two different weeks. They were not, therefore, in “competition” for the the title “The Power Performance of the Week.”

I agree with everything you said about Florencia Lozano performance in those scenes at the PCPD with Roger Howarth. I will even go a step farther and mention her performance in the hospital when she saw the baby was alright , and tried to approach her son(Sam’s Baby) and didn’t know why she couldn’t get her baby and leave. The scenes when she asked to say goodbye to the baby broke my heart. That was Power Acting to me and Poweful Performances. Florencia is such a Great Actress. She brings it everytime. Laura Wright is a good actress i’m just… Read more »

I agree. Laura Wriight is a fabulous actress and brings Carly to life. However…I actually agreed with her character’s initial reaction to Sonny…I expected much more devastation from him…he mourned Robin more than Jason. To segue from telling her about Jason and then switching gears to Kate/Connie seemed a bit emotionally removed. But I digress! 😉 Yay…Laura! Great performance!

While I only follow Laura via Twitter, I get the impression that Carly is Laura with the volume turned up. What say you, Michael…

If anyone other than Laura Wright played Carly, I would LOATHE the character. She is a vindictive, shrewish , mob lovin, hateful hypocritical, character. But Laura Wright is such a luminous genuine performer she somehow transcends all of Carly’s quirks. At some point , this show is coing ti HAVE to show some growth in this caractère. But really do they? Susan Lucci played the same self.involved teenager well into her 60’s. People grow and learn and change…in life…and if they don’t.on soaps…why would we want to watch the same.crap for 40 years??

Love Laura Wright. She always, always puts everything into her scenes and it shows, no matter what part she is playing, even bystander,she’s always totally into that moment. Which makes me ask why she has been seemingly demoted from lead to supporting, with no real story of her own. She deserves so much more and her latest is an example of why she can do wonders if given the opportunity and the proper writing. She’s being wasted, IMO. She should be in more scenes with MB because they are gold together, something the new regime seems to want to dismiss,… Read more »

She is awesome! Those scenes were great! Anytime she is with Jason or talking about hime she is great! Carly and Laura are my one of my GH favorites. As was Jason and Steve, and Spinelli and Bradford and Maxie and Kirsten. I am sooooo missing Jason/Steve. I am starting to think Carly and Todd could be a great couple. I am and was a CarJax fan and was hoping they would find their way back together… but Carly and Todd could be a phenomenal couple if written correctly. They are both very talented and could knock it out of… Read more »

Think they’ve all been knocking it out of the park. I’m sure Steve Burton’s Jason will be missed. I’m glad they left his death unresolved. Hope he returns after some time away from the role.

Loving GH but I sure miss my OLTL family so gladsome of them have come to GH! Watched AMC,OLTL and GH ever since I was a young girl and I’m 55 now! Funny I don’t seem to miss AMC but I DO miss OLTL but I was GH everyday too. I still get SoapNet on my DirecTv so I tape 3 yr old OLTL episodes.

OMG! Me too. I thought I was the only one taping classic OLTL on SOAPnet. I watched all ABC soaps but don’t miss AMC. It really went downhill its last few years on air. All part of ABC’s plan to destroy their soaps. Guess they underestimated OLTL & GH.

Don’t overlook Leslie Charleson. Her scenes with Michael were extremely powerful. Proves once again what a terrific dynamic she brings to the canvas. Wish TPTB would use her more.

I agree with you I would love to see more of Monica on screen instead of Starr, Kristina, Todd, John, Luke, Sam, and Kate/Connie. Leslie Charleson can carry a major story and it’s time we see it from the producers, and writers of this show. Stop having her onscreen twice a month, other shows respect their veteran stars and they or front and center with stories. Leslie has been a forgotten star on this show to long.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.

Denise Crosby Makes a Return to General Hospital

After a major fallout with her parents, Carolyn (Denise Crosby) and Jeff Webber (William R. Moses), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was devastated, in particular because they concocted a plan to make her forget all about the tragic situation earlier in her life. That being, when Finn’s (Michael Easton) late wife, Reiko, fell down a flight of steps and eventually died after she struggled with Liz.

Apparently, the story is not over, when Denise Crosby reprises her role of Carolyn beginning the week of January 23rd on General Hospital.

Talking about her return in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Crosby previewed, “She (Carolyn) wants to make a connection with her daughter and try to make amends for something that is almost impossible to make amends for. She knows it could go really wrong, but she can’t live with herself if she doesn’t take the shot.”

Something tells us there is more to the story of why Carolyn could have returned to Port Charles? Any thoughts?
