Yesterday, Daytime Confidential broke the news exclusively that on General Hospital’s upcoming 51st anniversary episode on the Tuesday April 1st episode of the ABC sudser, look for a Carlypalooza when former Carly’s Sarah Brown and Tamara Braun make cameo appearances and show up within the episode, but who will they play?

Meanwhile, the current Laura Wright (Carly) will be front and center in the episode along with Maurice Benard (Sonny), as Carly learned on Friday’s episode that Sonny shot AJ (Sean Kanan)!

Today, General Hospital’s head writer, Ron Carlivati tweeted a picture of all three actresses who have played Carly next to Maurice Benard noting:  “A man and his Carlys”!

So what do you think of the idea of having Sarah Brown, Tamara Braun and Laura Wright in the same episode of GH? Who do you think Sarah and Tamara will play?  Comment below!

No idea. Amazing the resemblance between Sarah Brown and Tamara Braun.

They should have done this in March of 2016, that would have been the 20th anniversary of the character Carly.

Awesome news. GH keeps getting better and better. Will most defiantly need to watch this episode!

Carly learns she’s a set of faternal triplets…lol. One will play the good side of Carly and one will play the bad side of Carly as she struggles with knowing it was Sonny who shot A.J.:bad Carly says dont tell and good Carly(is there such a thing) says bring that lowlife mon(b)ster down!!! They should bring back all three Heather Grants and show them in the mental hospital with each claiming to be the real Heather Grant…not only would this be funny it would also drive some anti Heather fans crazy…lmao!!!

I find your idea completely plausible. Would not be surprised if this is exactly what happens..

i hope it’s not one of those cameos, where they are sitting in the background or walking pass Carly. and doing a double take. They deserve something solid with words involved.

I have watched all the Carly’s thru the years but Laura Wright is my all time favorite. I love it when she is on the show.

I agree..love Laura’s Carly. Althought Sarah and Tamara are good actresses as well. Show we a good episode…Frank/Ron play so much to GH rich history..love it!

They should have included Maura West too. She was also a Carly -just on another soap.

There was actually another Carly b4 L.W…she wasnt the best but y not include all 4 unless the actress wouldnt agree to do it!!!

The Carly b4 L.W. was on a very short time because she was terrible! Don’t need her in this special 51st anniversary episode!

@jmh the #3 Bransford Carly MB/Sonny did everything in the world to save her job he felt she was beginning to grow into the part I wish I still had that interview. LW has a tendency to be awfully loud and I don’t think she has chemistry with MB. Never a big fan of the Carly character because no matter who has played her she always was on 4 to 5 days a week.

That would’ve been funny to see Maura photobomb the photo, as an *honorary* Carly from another soap. Plus, she and SJB worked together on ATWT when Sarah was Julia.

Can’t wait! It’s a great idea, especially for an April 1 episode.

IA, even when she whispers-lol. I think Sarah Brown portrayed Carly best, but I loved her as Claudia. They need to bring her back from the dead-her and Faith Roscoe. The two baddest b*tches on there!

James

Totally agree! Claudia should be one of the “dead” that Victor Cassadine has, ready to be revealed in an upcoming storyline. She’s back & out for blood! Watch your back Sonny! 🙂 (He was out of line the way he treated her @ the party, when he pushed her over the edge! But if Sonny goes over the edge, he gets comforted/encouraged/excused. His fam/friends fall all over themselves to pacify him! Poor pitiful Sonny, let’s hold your hand & make excuses for you while we condem everyone else! Gag-worthy indeed!)
And Faith can help Claudia to settle the score, while taking Rick down a few pegs – hee hee!

Cindy

Multiple personality Carlys. The good, the bad, and the sexy.

Diane

Sarah Brown was the best Carly. Please fire Laura Wright, and rehire Sarah Brown. Laura is just not Carly to me. That’s my opinion.

Matthew
Matthew

I’ll second that opinion. Sarah Brown is the best actress ever to grace daytime! Please let them get her back full-time! She is sorely missed! GH isn’t the same without her!

Jimmy

Actually, I think Sarah Brown did well as Claudia Zacchara. It would be great if they could find a way to bring her back from the dead, and then hire Tamara Braun as Nina Clay! Imagine that LOL

Lisa
Lisa

I agree….Sarah Brown was spot on as Claudia Zacchara. I did like her originally as Carly, but the character has evolved and I like Laura Wright the best for this role.
But if there is a way for them to bring Claudia Zacchara back I would LOVE THAT!! I LOVED her in this role and was really sad that it wasn’t taken further.

FAS

I heard that Michelle Stafford is joining GH….my favorite actress of all time …..if that is the case, she would be the perfect age to play Nina Clay ( whom I do not believe is dead).

Mama

A lot of people share your opinion.

sarah rocked as both carly and claudia, i would take her back in a second as claudia, and tamara would be great playing a new character too, better yet if somehow sarah and tamara could play sisters/family. as for laura, love her too. my mind wold explode if somehow these three actresses were on the show all at the same time. i say bring them back..

terri

LOVE IT!

RC always gives us some sort of excitement ..
It will be fun to have the 3 together, a first/never done before ..

( Laura Wright is my fav Carly)

Erick

Brilliant. I still think Tamara Braun was the best Carly. They found a way to get Sarah Brown to play a different character, certainly they can get Tamara back somehow, only don’t paint her into a corner as quickly/poorly as they did Claudia….

Jimmy
Jimmy

What if Tamara Braun is brought on as Nina Clay? She fits the role well and I could see an interesting connection developing between her and her mother, Madeline, who is being played excellently by Donna Mills.

Lisa
Lisa

I think Tamara Braun looks too young to be Nina Clay. Isn’t Nina supposed to be older than Silas?

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I believe Nina could still be alive and if she is, Tamara is one of the actresses id like to see in the part!!!

aria

one day of tamara and sarah is not enough, i want them back full time, and i love sarah as claudia, i know some people say her run as claudia wasn’t “sucessfull” but i disagree, she was great, and tamara could play her sister, or cousin. it would be insane to have these two on the show at the same time.

Awesome! I guess most actors do like working at GH.

Jimmy

I love all three actresses. I did not watch GH when Sarah Brown or Tamara Braun were Carly, but I watched Sarah Brown as Claudia and Tamara Braun as Ava Vitali on DAYS and I think they are fantastic actresses, as is Laura Wright.

I would love to see Sarah Brown back as Claudia and ideally, Tamara Braun as Nina Clay. It would be fun to see the Claudia/Ric interaction and I think Tamara Braun and Donna Mills would be great in scenes together as mother/daughter, just like Maura West and Ilene Kristen are as Ava and Delia.

TheHugoBoss
TheHugoBoss

Id LOVE to have Brown back as Claudia. Though that’d completely screw up Michael’s whole story as a murderer/inmate ect…..but if it’d get her back, suppose it’d be worth it. Lol. And would hopefully get Johnny back. But I do agree, Braun as Nina WOULD be great!

But ,regardless, having them both back, if even for an episode is worth it!

harry

I wouldn’t want any of this. I want AJ not to die and all these new characters to take a hike. GH has just become a ridiculous joke.

Shay
Shay

Agree with you, Harry!!!! All of Ron’s superstunts are wearing thin….today’s show was absolutely ridiculous. Between AJ’s unnecessary and heartbreaking death and the lascivious Luke-A-Like’s appalling use of the nose candy, I was left just completely disgusted. About the only place we part company is on the subject of Dr. O….I love the shady lady and her evil ways.

Daisy Day

Laura Wright is the best Carly. She has the best chemistry with Sonny. She has chemistry with everyone including the other women on the show. She’s a fantastic actress.

Sharonda
Sharonda

I think Vanessa Marcil has the best, but I enjoyed Tamara and Sarah’s chemistry with MB. I think Laura Wright had the best chemistry with Jax/IR or RH when he was Todd.

Elizabeth

VM definitely had the best chemistry with Sonny/MB. No question about it.

Charday

Should be fun. I just hope that Carly will do the right thing and turn her thug ex-husband, Sonny, in for the attempted murder of AJ.

I’m sure this is a one-time stunt. Though I’d love it if Michael ran into SJB and think its Claudia

Dan

I think Sarah Brown, Tamara Braun and Laura Wright have all been good Carly’s in their own way. I thought Jennifer Bransford did a good job for the 6 months she was Carly in 2005. It’s a great character and they’ve all played her very differently, making it their own. Will be fun to see all three actresses on screen together, as an ode to long time fans of GH.

TheHugoBoss

Agreed!!!

Sharonda

JB sucked as Carly -Carly should have been declared dead for 6 months only to resurface with LW version.

Maybe they’ll all play Carly’s corpse in various stages of decomposition. With Mini-moobster eating their entrails and blaming it all on AJ.

Ron C always has a way…. He also did the “jessica’s” on OLTL, when Erin Torpey came on for an episode.

Looking forward to “the carly’s”

What about Jennifer Bransford??

I hheard it was only because she’s on the east coast, and the expenses wouldn’t work budget-wise. Whereas Brown and Braun are both here in LA.

Jennifer only lasted 6 months, she was a terrible actress. Jennifer was fired, I hope she took acting lessons. lmao.

I couldnt remember her name but i did mention the 4th Carly in one of my replys…J.B. either didnt want to do it or tptb just decided not to include her because she wasnt a much popular Carly and isnt well remembered in the role…she didnt last as long as any of the other 3…i thought she looked the part!!!!

She resides in NY they did not want to pay for her air fare etc. is the word going around.

Jennifer wasn’t notable enough in the role of Carly. A total mis-cast. She would’ve worked better as Alexis’ older sister.

Jeff

Very cool stunt, it should be interesting to watch:)

David Evan Smith

I agree that Jennifer Bransford should be included, and will only really accept the absence if she refused to come back for it or was unavailable for other work. Every other Carly recast had a break from the previous Carly’s tenure before starting, but Jennifer had to hit the ground running (I believe) the very next day, which might have worked against her. I think she did a fine job and could have been a great hard-edged, intense Carly. I remember she did a lot of all-out fight scenes with Kelly Monaco and Kari Wuhrer. Bransford got a bum deal as Carly and six months is hardly enough time to really grow into a role as popularized for years by two other actresses. Braun wasn’t well liked as quickly either after Sarah Brown vacated.

Anyway, as for HOW they’ll use them, I’d actually like to see Sonny play the confrontation scenes with all three of them as Carly in different scenes, it could even bounce back and forth WITHIN the scene, line by line. It IS April Fools episode, they could have a lot of fun in the editing. Little silent cameos would hardly be worth it, let’s actually see all of them AS Carly, doing intense, big scenes with Maurice Benard, especially since it involves AJ, who was a big force throughout all the Carly runs (even though Billy Warlock was the only one to work with all three of them as Carly… I think? Did Warlock work with Wright? Maybe he only worked through Bransford when Michael supposedly smothered AJ to death with a pillow and then it turned out to be Dr. Asher Thomas…)

Ahs

THANK you, David! Anyone who thinks Jenny Bransford wasn’t a good actress, I don’t know what they were watching. I loved Tams and Sarah intensely as Carly, but Jenny won me over instantly. (With Tamara, though she became my favorite, it took many months.) Yes, she started the day after Tams’ last day. She had great chemistry with Maurice, her Carly was tough and funny, AND she had to play a mental breakdown. She was fantastic. A lot of us campaigned for her to stay. I think they claimed unpopularity, but she got the axe because Pratt said when he watched her on-screen he didn’t want to f**k her. Doubtful they asked her back, but if she popped up for five seconds towards the end, I would jump up and down!

aria

OMG, why not bring them back as new characters? sarah and tamara would make great sisters. although the idea is great, its going to make fans miss the two previous gals even more, their talent is to great for a one day episode. bring them back full time, thats my wish. of course as new characters, sarah can come back as claudia, which was a great bad girl and would totally give ava a run for her money. i’m overwhelmed thats all i can say.

harry
harry

This has got to be one of the most idiotic ideas Ron has come up and this is saying a lot since he is the man who made James Franco come back to life as Todd, er, I mean, Roger Hayworth. Having the three actresses who played Carly appear in one scene intrudes the idea of reality into the realm of fantasy. Just a really stupid idea.

Trisha
Trisha

ICAM..I actually think he’s ‘mocking’ Carly and by extension GH. It’s all just a game to him…all stunts…no depth, no respect for the actors or the characters. He’s just saying “Look everybody, all the Carlys are here”. It serves no purpose whatsover.

How’d Ron like it ABC decided to bring back Guza and let him ‘guest write’ a few scenes here and there? This way everyone can compare the skill of their writing to each other? I wonder how’d he feel?

Elizabeth
Elizabeth

I agree with you. I don’t know that I have ever known of a person in show business with less class (talk about school being out)… maybe Alec Baldwin…

Aria

Lol, so multiple characters back from the dead is realistic?? Or ftrozen characters ?? What realm of reality or fantasy are you on???

I love this idea! I really loved Tamara Braun as Carly. I thought her portrayal of Carly brought some sensitivity to the role.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

I hope this cameo isn’t tacky or anything. i’d rather see SJB come back as Claudia or something. And Tamara Braun either as someone new, or a recast of Courtney / Emily / Liz’s sister, Sarah. But I’m happy to see the three Carlys finally together at once. But Laura IS Carly for me.

I heard they are doing a spin off called sonny’s angels. It starts on April 1st and runs for only one episode.
April fools day! But seriously one day is not enough, the idea is great to celebrate the show anniversary but I wish they were coming back full time.

Sooooooooo glad they left out the short-lived crazy Carly, played by Jennifer Bransford. She was absolutely terrible! April 18 to October 5, 2005 when she was rightfully fired… making way for the fantastic Laura Wright.

So the Carly clan will be fun to watch!
