Maura West always reminded me of a young Kim Zimmer..

i remember reading somewhere that when richard culliton first pitched the character of carly to then ep, laurie caso, both saw her as the troubled girl who, down the road, could bring reva’s complexity and longevity to ‘world turns.

 

of course, by the time carly arrived in oakdale, caso was gone, replaced by john valente, setting the stage for the show’s final decline.

Maura did try later on (especially in the early years of her second stint), but I don't think anything ever compared to the magic of her first stint.

 

Daniel Markel was hot and had a real spark as David Allen, in a pretty horribly written and shoehorned role. I never understood why he was let go - given that this was the period when CBS Daytime was reportedly run by people who fired actors based on whether they were "hot" enough, I wonder if that's why we got the porn type actor in his place. 

 

Markel retired from acting and became a successful stock broker, I think.

It's because the regimes made Carly fall in-love, which changed her vixen edge. Not necessarily a negative, but it did change the direction of the character.

Thanks. He still looks pretty good. Silly P&G/CBS execs, as always.

Wow..he looks damn good!!! Too bad soaps are still viable..he would make a great Alan Spaulding type patriarch now.

I feel like I read somewhere that Carly was created on paper by Marland, but not used on screen until after his death.

 

Carly reminds me a lot of that Marcy character (not the one played by Marisa Tomei) in the early 90s, the one that was involved with Linc and on occasion, in cahoots with Lucinda, aggravating Connor Walsh, especially when played by the blonde actress. Anytime I see scenes of her, I can't help but think that she could've been an early prototype for Carly.

 

Those promos all look like they have that "soap opera effect" that tech people like to so derisively use when describing poor picture quality. Why do all the scenes in the promos in gauzy sepia and neutral tan tones.

That is always what I've heard as well. It's not hard to believe that as meticulous as Marland was, he was already forming Carly in his head to be the foil to Rosanna.

I can believe Marland sketched out Carly..but she would have lacked fire and personality if Marland wrote her.

True..she would have been worried about Lily's upcoming birthday! I wonder what Long could have done with Carly? I always wonder what Long could have done if she took over after Marland.
