112 September 13th, 2013 GH’s Laura Wright Tweets On Why Carly Might Be Drawn To Franco!

Fans of General Hospital have noticed over the last several episodes that it appears that Carly(Laura Wright) has some very conflicted feelings for former serial murderer, Franco (Roger Howarth).

After seeing him at some of the lowest points in life, including watching him trying to kill himself pre-brain surgery,  and then again after when he was contemplating suicide post-brain surgery on the GH hospital rooftop, there clearly is some attraction going on between the two characters.  Carly also testified at Franco’s hearing to if he is a changed man.  Is Carly clearly falling for this guy?  Is it Carly and her choice of bad boy men once again? Do viewers care as long as it puts Roger Howarth and Laura Wright together again?

Well this afternoon, a couple of fans were tweeting to Laura Wright about why Carly would be drawn to Franco, and does it have anything to do with Franco being Jason’s twin?

Laura responded tweeting, “Ok my take on it–Carly doesn’t get why she is doing this either- with Franco. She’s drawn to him because of Jason? It’s her struggle as well.  And as an actress I love playing it-we can Judge all day long but people, REAL people are capable of anything. So characters on TV r 2 :)  AND haa lastly. I love working with Roger so. It’s a blast for me to do anything with RH. With that off to the pool— xoxo”

So why do you think, is Carly drawn  now hopelessly to Franco? What would her best friend Jason, think of her falling in love with his twin brother?   Do you like Laura Wright and Roger Howarth paired together romantically?  Are you looking forward to seeing how and if their on-screen relationship intensifies? Comment below!

    RoHo is simply a laugh riot….his FrancQ is light years away from the demented soul that James F. created…..and his detractors just need to get used to that notion. Yesterday’s face-to-face with Heather really proves that fact….the two were comedic magic together, and their chemistry priceless!!!! Particularly the bit about her “birthday gift” and of course, her “BLT jones!” As soon as Shawn offered up his famous sandwich to Max on the previous day’s show, I knew that this was a bit of clever foreshadowing, and that it would be central to Ms. Webber’s next appearance. The only part I erroneously guessed was that when Max put down the tasty treat after one bite to attend to the mob drama in the kitchen, I expected the lady herself would sneak into the diner to filch it, with the burly bodyguard later returning to find an empty plate!!! Oh well…it was just as funny the way it actually went down, but I do have to wonder what the whack-job is going to say when her beloved treat is delivered stone cold (not unlike Jason!) and with a bite missing…should be interesting viewing to say the least!!!!

    That’s what Todd said to her. This whole storyline has been pitiful to say the least!

    No matter how many white washing DVDs he produces, Franco is the one who set the events in motion that got her son sexually assaulted in prison. Carly shouldn’t touch Franco with a ten foot pole. If they wanted to repair LW and RH, they could have made RH ANY other character but this one.

    this happens to your child.. regardless if your child is in prison.. and this unfolds as… your child was overpowered.. and the ramifications.. don’t stop…

    Carly is sharing with Liz.. that because of the “brain tumor” … it’s OK ?????

    writers… come up with something other than Carly libido to trigger her, self gratification…

    Okay not until Ron Carlivati clarifies himself through writing and believable build will I ever buy Carly and Franco as a pairing until Franco Roger Howarth and Ronald Carlivati shown us back story Carlys children forgiving Franco will anyone be able to believe this…. Ron Carlivati should stop focusing on Carly Franco angle but more Michael and Franco, Morgan and Franco build that Up give him a back story give him other angles to play at then maybe some Lovin….

    I also want to add I enjoyed the darkness of a character one that is sweet kind caring but also ruthless selfish greedy shows jealousy in spades and will go to any extremes to fight for the people that they love,
    Characters with more depth then comedy so far Roger has been doing mostly Comedy amazingly small hints of ruthlessness and the breakdown was best he has done by far as Franco that is…

    I think Ronald Carlivati needs to add more layers to Roger Howarths character…
    Make him more Zach Slater Sonny Corinthos Jason Morgan Ej Dimera phenomenal depths

    Give it time to build.
    RH/Franco has just had his tumor removed and is developing into Franco the Q..
    It is a new day, new Franco, and new stories, and ALL the characters that RH has made his own has been layered and Franco will be layered sky high, wait for it :)

    Nobody but RH could bring new life to Franco the Q ..
    This Franco is being made for RH.. !
    I see the future of RH once again being the best of the best with his Franco character and it will be a great assist to GH to have a power Q in Port Charles and RH will take his Franco to new heights :)

    The 1st Franco is dead and in a jar !!

    and this gives us reason and pause for Carly… cause… it’s her – getting all the mens….. on canvas… and it’s her turn… always… and it’s because… Carly is this and Carly is that.

    is that reason enough anymore? her family is deadbeat… Michael and Morgan haven’t done anything… ALL summer… and now we’re “heating” up Carly to abandon herself to Franco.. and vise versa

    At least RH and LW have some great chemistry.

    Shay replied

    She already does….herself!!!! She seems completely absorbed in her own “Avaness.” I find her totally emotionally uninvolved as a mother or sister….everything that appears to matter to her is only in the context of how it will affect HER. There is never any true thought for anyone else’s welfare or feelings, just how those she plays off of will be of personal benefit. Despite supposedly having a huge history with Franco, Ms. Jerome showed no genuine concern or sorrow for his tribulations, in fact, the only time there is even a hint of caring in her shallow,callow character is when Silas is around….probably because she knows she can’t have him, so of course, she wants him all the more! Other than to fulfill her own craven desires, I see no motivation or interest for Ava beyond Ava herself…

    #1. Roger Howarth…. ie: even as Franco…. is a good looking guy…. how stimulating is “this” ?

    tell me I’m wrong….

    ie: Carly and Sonny. where do we take them? Carly hasn’t had her own storyline.. since… the nuTodd… left… etc… and it’s like… ie: the writers’ think they still have writers gold in the pairing of NuTodd/Franco… and Carly?

    if we go by the fan outcry… it’s not what should be happening… true to form… and her libido and personal life be damned.

    Carly’s sons… are boring

    Michael and Morgan… haven’t produced.. any, interest… Kiki is with them.

    you know… nuTodd, left… and now it’s Franco…. so? what? because there’s a physical attraction… why not let it be that… it’s Carly.

    puhlease… writers… don’t let her mingle and get her claws in to Derrick.. just because it’s intrigue and Carly gets what she wants… 2nd fiddle… be damned… it’s Alexis turn

    you know… work the canvas… get Carly some drama… all her own… something.. personal… heck.. something, with Bobbi… outside of men… and screaming about her kids.

    till its something other than men… Carly is written in to a corner.

    Reply

    Shay replied

    I think what is really comes down to is that Carly simply cannot resist the urge to “experience” (i.e., “possess?”) the latest “Quartermaine” brother….she collects them, and now that this newest one has been “reissued” as a more palatable version, she’s just gotta have it!!!! The fact that he is now being played by RH (with whom LW loves being paired….) is just the icing on the (birthday) cake…..

    Reply

    you have a point there….

    ie: not having Bobbi around….

    and… using her wiles… to snag men… is a throwback to what makes Carly tick…

    Speaking from someone who loves Laura’s Carly… I still wish at this time in her life she would pick a good guy… like Jax was until he went bad. I have a problem with her getting involved with Franco the character we have known because of everything he has done… especially to Jason and her family. I understand an interest because he is Jason’s brother and if he could be a truly changed man… it should still be hard because she would always remember what he was and did. I would love to see the new Franco become a redeemed Q. If he stays the same old Franco he should be with Ava.

    I would like to see Carly with some very rich and successful business tycoon who gives her cache in town so… while she came and struggled with her beginnings and bad boy escapades she came out of it with someone who is successful with some ruthlessness. I would like to see Carly eventually be like Tracy Q and be a big benefactor to GH and Port Charles. She will always have her edge… complexity… and a touch of crazy… but she will be in everyone’s orbit! Carly, Tracy and Anna should be in anyone’s orbit… they play so well with everyone!

    I love the two actors together. Because of the ruthless Franco #1, I think they need to do a very slow build to any romance maybe a year or so. I also think it would be a good idea to let the new Franco (Rob Q) to develop into a different personality with his own layers and not be the original Franco or Todd. Let them eventually become friends and later see what happens. I think it is a very small minority of fans who are doing all the complaining about the two, but they do have a point. The character that RH plays needs to evolve before a pairing between him and LW can take place. I hope the writers take the TIME to develop this story.

    Okay I have a question I had a dream about this last night why did Laura forgive Luke?
    I mean Luke brutally raped her and yet Laura forgave him she carried her rapist children raised them together she loved Luke and I get what Franco did was so much worse then what Luke did he for years tortured Carly’s loved ones and I’m hoping Ron will be able to give him a back story and more then a few days work all about Ava crap but I think once Ron works his magic and gives us more then a tumor to explain Franco’s actions then I think fans will love him all the more

    Reply

    Elizabeth replied

    Laura forgave Luke because he told her to go away, he was convinced he would be dead in a matter of hours, and he simply overpowered her to take what he wanted before he died. He was immediately remorseful (the horror showed on his face within minutes) and he showed serious concern for her thereafter. Indeed, he was downright horrified when he realized she wasn’t dealing with what happened when he went to visit her in the hospital. He didn’t do the deed to torture her and then relish the torture. (Franco enjoyed what he did to everyone he mistreated.)

    Also, it was months before anything transpired in the LnL story that furthered them as a couple. True, they continued to fight their attraction for each other but there was no insta-connection for romance.

    I believe the best way of settling this if Ron sends Roger Howarth back to one life to live so he can only work along side Kassie Depiava it’s clear that’s where he belongs and where he wants to be so just let him leave their’s no future here….
    Carly belongs with Aj or Sonny not Roger Howarth I can see he’s disgusted by her

    Sorry the Franco / Carly instant attraction is contrived and being as usual forced down the viewer’s throats. No matter if it does not support the character as they have been developed. Obviously it is only what Ms. Wright desires that matters to the powers that be because Ms. Wright in her tweet made it clear she does not give a crap to what the fans have to say. At least that is the main opinion I am seeing on other boards!

    Reply

    Samantha replied

    Um Ms.Wright isn’t a writer ok and further more that’s the only time she gets to have screentime is when Roger Howarth is on it’s clear Ron loves Howarth and Laura gets paid a good deal of money to talk up her stories and do and say what Ron wants her to do and say I bet if she was paired back up with Ingo Radamcher she would be enjoying herself even more and talking it up on twitter and no one would see a problem with it.

    I can’t stand Carly and Franco. While I like most everything else going on with the show I hate this pairing and this storyline so much I skip over it or leave the room / change the channel when its on. It is just so disturbing that any mother would become infatuated with a man who stalked her daughter and arranged for her son to be raped. The tumor is just another poor writing ploy – if the tumor was responsible for his crimes why did he come back with the DVD’s to whitewash his behavior. Makes no sense whatsoever. Why should longtime GH fans have to put up with this dreck just to please OLTL viewers ? I don’t care about the actors’ chemistry the storyline just SUCKS.

    judith replied

    the storyline has to improve, this tumor explanation, plot point yes is ridiculous and silly..and/but the actors have some great chemistry..Now the writing has to match the chemistry..

  23. Alex says:

    I love the pairing. Roger Howarth started slowly to morph “Crazy Franco” into a character that is able to show feelings, as true love for his ex-daughter, regret, disappointment and hope. It won´t take long and Roger Howarth is going to make the audience believe that tumor-less Franco is someone who deserves to be loved.
    As Laura pointed out on twitter. people in real life a capable of anything, so why shouldn´t fictional characters overcome the past?
    Their story will be much more intense as all the other pairings on GH. Furthermore you can feel how mach both actors enjoy working together. So I´m all in for this pairing, Laura and Roger rock the story!!!

    In the universe of soaps the heart wants what the heart wants– sometimes what the heart wants is the worse thing for the character, but doesn’t stop them from following their heart.

    In our universe the powers that be at GH aren’t fools– they know RH and LW have great chemistry together and they be crazy not to use it— and that is why Carly is attracted to Franco.

    I cannot accept the character Franco, in either pre- or post- tumor. Franco is the biggest misstep GH has ever committed, followed closely by revealing that he is Jason’s heretofore unknown twin. I still want to puke when Franco (it doesn’t make a difference who plays him) comes on the screen. The only way out of this mess, as far as I can see, is to completely divorce the character from the Franco name. Robert Frank should become Robert Quartermaine and let the Franco moniker die even in our memories.

    Hey first off my 2cents is that Carly shouldn’t have to use Jason as a excuse to be with anyman Ron already clarified that.
    Laura Wright has the right to support her ships just like she supported CarJax and Sharly and CarJo she’s professional Kassie is the one that needs to satisfy her thirst with Roger Howarth she has a Howarth Obsession not Laura, Wright is good either way…
    Also Howarth and Laura have been friends longer then Kassie and Roger so it makes sense she’s supportive of him…

    Now as far as Franco and Carly goes I do think Ron needs to develop Franco Quartermaine more give him some back story let him settle in town stop putting Carly only in his orbit let him flourish and get along with her children make friends have a sister build a relationship with Aj bulid Roger’s character before strapping him with a love interest….

    Ron if you read this or come across this please take my advice don’t duplicate your past stories man please for god sakes create something new here build it please for the love of god don’t waste this soap goodness and Frank don’t allow him to do so, get Guza in on this he can probably help you he created Jasam so I believe Guza could help Ron on this

    The 2 actors DO have great chemistry together, and both are enormously beautiful and talented. BUT the brain tumor redemption is DONE and is something I can’t live with, so I ignore it as if Franco never was a serial killer. I’m not sure exactly what Franco’s past was, since I wasn’t watching during the James Franco times, because I was sick of JFP and her misogynistic head writer Robert Guza. Too bad the drama with the ONE LIFE THREE couldn’t be worked out. ABC really screwed everyone.

    I love that Laura W. sent this message out. It is exactly how it plays to me, she is such a great actress. I really enjoy her and Roger H.’s scenes. My only concern is that is is going a little too fast for my tastes. I feel that they should have these two thrown together more instead of choosing to spend time together. Let’s build this a little more slowly. I really like Ron so I’m willing to sit back trust him to do it right. Just the other day when I was thinking why the heck would Carly go to the trial she shouldn’t trust him. But then she had that conflicted speech saying she didn’t. So I feel like Ron knows what he is doing with this.

    First of all Roger wasn’t on Loving that long to have a so called long relationship with Laura. They never had and still don’t great chemistry like he has with Kassie. He and Kassie could play different characters and still have more chemistry than he and Laura. Their scenes never felt force even after 8 years. Kassie is just telling the truth that she enjoys working with him and his other co-stars have said the same thing. The difference between Kassie and Laura is she wouldn’t push a co-star under the bus to work with a certain actor. Laura knows this time around Roger has better chemistry with Maura than he ever had with her and making stupid excuses is all she can do to stay front and center. Sorry but the majority of the fans (look at polls and various message boards) don’t like them as a couple and know Carly would never get involved with Franco, Kill him yes but never get involved. Most fans say they fast forward their scenes. RC & FV need to open theirs eyes and see the mess that is Franco & Carly is not working and get rid of the character who is simply Todd with a different name. Laura is refusing just like RC to see that Carly has better chemistry with SK & WD. GH is doing well in the ratings due to the veterans and very few newbies not these two. She can make all the excuses she wants but it won’t change the fact RC ruined her character.

    Don’t speak for everybody..i see chemistry between Howarth and Wright, not so much with Maura West (who is a great actress but chemistry is here or not). As for the fan wars between Kassie and Laura and actually between Blair and Carly..come on it is kind of OTT and silly..Roger Howarth is not even Todd on GH anymore..give it up Blair doesn’t even have any story with Franco, come on..the Carly bashing and Ava propping seems almost a die hard Blair fan agenda..like Carly would be too much a threat to Blair therefore let’s praise and propp Ava..kind of ridiculous since Blair has NOTHING to do with this Franco character..lol

    So you talked to him recently and he’s told you this? You really need to stop with the nonsense because you don’t know what he wants.

    Kassie is NOT Roger Howarth’s true love..try to make a difference between fiction and reality..Roger IS NOT Todd and Kassie IS NOT Blair.

    I’m just glad they’ve figured out a way to get Roger and Laura back to scenes together!

    Carly does go for the bad boys, she also (like many women) wants to help them – or fix them, and I’m sure down deep she’s also feeling guilty for trying to kill him and that was before they knew about the tumor and what it had been making Franco behave deplorably for so long. I think a big changing point in how she felt about him was that day up on the bridge when he thought he was Jason.

    What I’ve noticed with the online community is that it’s only the “fans” that support certain couples who can’t quite grasp that the actors are not the characters. The individual soap & actors fans know the difference. We’re just not as loud & annoying. :)

    Prospect Park chose to focus on the wrong things for the show & in return had less viewers. I’ve watched OLTL since before ES was Viki Riley & I couldn’t care less if Todd & Blair were soulmates. But PP decided that ALL OLTL fans must be T&Bers & that PP was YOUR biggest mistake.

    First of all what show are watching, that’s Todd without a scar and a different name. He doesn’t act like the old Franco, he acts like Todd which is why most of us don’t buy the tumor excuse. Yes I said most of us, look at the various message boards and other social media’s for every 2 yays there are 10 nays. I am not a fan MW but I see bit of non-forced chemistry but with LW it does feel forced. I recently visited my niece at a big name university and at the student lounge every time RH & LW came on the channel was changed until their scenes were over. They are the demo the networks are looking for. It’s RC’s fault because you can’t say he’s changed when he hasn’t acted like his old self. It’s a shame to because RH is a great actor to have to play scenes that make him look like a clown. It’s one thing to do it for a few scenes, but 90% of his scenes are of him clowning around like Todd and not the Franco GH fans know. We know that KDP/Blair is not on GH, but that’s RC & FV’s fault and like Julia Roberts character in Pretty Woman said to the saleswoman “big mistake”. It doesn’t change the fact that RH & LW don’t have chemistry. I don’t see them topping charts on hulu or youtube. GH’s numbers are rising but they will not reach 2nd or 1st place until they realize it’s because of their veterans & a few newbies, but not the OLTL 3. I still believe LW will come up with any excuse because she knows those are RC’s favorites and she wants to be on the front burner. You can’t blame her for wanting to keep her job but she just needs to be real this is not the Carly the fans know. I don’t speak for everyone just with those that have expressed the same views. Yes they are only soaps, but we fans take time to watch them, so we have the right to give our opinion.

    I am over the moon, happy to see Laura and Roger working together. From the moment that Carly cradled Franco in her arms, after his delusions of being Jason, I got chills that made me want more. If it were anyone other than Roger and Laura in those scenes, I would not have been so satisfied. I truly want Franco to be redeemable, and I desparately want Carly to fall in love with, once and for all, because of the spectacular chemistry between Roger Howarth and Laura Wright. For every wonderful moment that I have witnessed between these two spectacular actors, I thank them and the writers at GH, and I sincerely ask for more!

    Tumor or no tumor, this man is the reason her son was raped. He did horrible things to people and I can’t imagine how she’d choose him over her own son. This is a like a Pod Carly. Don’t even bring Jason into this because Franco is nothing like him anyway. I have always hated Franco. There is no plausible reason Carly would want him. He isn’t even likeable. It’s not about chemistry. Lots of people have chemistry with Jerry but I don’t want to see them in a relationship. It’s about principle. Forcing them together because of chemistry sucks. They could have had RH be a Cassadine. He would have rocked that. But no, they chose a character that was hated and then make up some stupid excuse for all his crimes. Whatever. I hate RC’s sloppy writing.
