In a new interview out today from TVGuide.com, General Hospital’s Laura Wright (Carly) previews the first meeting between Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo) and Carly, and what happens when the two female titans of Port Charles go at it! Look for October 22 to be the first round of Brenda vs. Carly. In addition, Wright mentions she has her eye on one soaper to come in to Port Charles and be the new man in Carly’s life. And, that is none other than Daytime Emmy winner for Lead Actor, Michael Park, formerly Jack Snyder on As the World Turns. Here is what Laura had to say about Park and Brenda!
Wright on wanting Michael Park on GH: “I’ll tell you the award I want! Michael Park [ATWT's Jack]! I love Ingo Rademacher, and I love the Jax and Carly relationship and I don’t know where the writers are going with it, but dammit, I want Michael Park! He’s so charming and so talented. I’ve already told Bob Guza and [GH writer] Elizabeth Korte about this. And I think I’m going to send [ABC Daytime chief] Brian Frons an email. I’m serious! I don’t know if Michael wants to work with another Carly, but I have the whole storyline already worked out in my head. So, yeah, I want him to be my new man. [Laughs] And he does not get to be in love with Brenda!”
Wright on if the collision between Carly and Brenda will be well worth GH’s fan wait: “I hope! Everybody came down to the set to watch us shoot it and they were all laughing. It’s pretty crazy. The straws Carly grabs for will have jaws dropping. She really goes for it. It had to be that crazy or it would fall to s–t after all this buildup. Afterwards, I had to apologize to Vanessa and she gave me a huge hug.”
So what do you think? Would you like to see a Jack Attack come to PC and pair Park with Wright? Are you looking forward to Vanessa and Laura’s upcoming scenes? Let us know.
