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!

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

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 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.

@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.

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!

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… Read more »

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

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
Guest

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.

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).

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..

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
Guest
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
Guest

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

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!!

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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
Guest

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?

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.

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

Courtesy/ABC

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.
