We had a couple of great flare-ups with Laura as Carly. Robin telling Nikolas that the baby was his and Jax was not the father was kind of fun.
SJB’s Carly was just this side of dangerous. She had so much anger, neurosis and also when she was paired with Sonny- power. I think Claudia is more like what her Carly would have been like- more cunning, certainly the wardrobe and style. TB’s Carly settled into a romantic heroine with and edge, and Laura is playing someone named Carly but she doesn’t often get to play the wounded animal. SJB’s wounds were the kind that lashed out.
I did think she and SBu and MB had more chemistry back in the day with LW than they do now. Steve especially had great chem with Sarah and decent with TB. I never liked Sonny with Sarah’s version of Carly- it was the beginning of overly Sonny centric writing dominating the show for me. They both were on all the time and tied to everybody, and now they are together literally eating the show alive.
I can never look at this cover without smiling because supposedly the four stars began screaming at each other during the photo shoot. SBu kicked over a chair. The SOD liason freaked out and called his editor. The actors then crowed "APRIL FOOLS!" loud enough for her to hear.
