Carly’s relationship with Sonny on General Hospital may be a little volatile, but her portrayer, actress Laura Wright, has found a fabulous new love with boyfriend Wes Ramsey! The two were co-stars back on Guiding Light in the early 2000's, but hadn’t seen each other for years until the 2017 Daytime Emmys brought them back together!
“We knew each other back in the day,” Laura confided to Soaps In Depth. "But we hadn’t seen each other or talked until we ran into each other at an Emmy party on April 26. I was joking around with Donnell Turner (Curtis) about the line at the bar and Wesley turned around. I was like, ‘Oh my God! What’s up?’ And that was it.”
Laura has been single for a few years after separating from her husband, John, with whom she has two children, Lauren and John. But the time was right and fate stepped in to bring her a brand new love! The actress loves sharing photos of her life on her Instagram, and made her new relationship with Wes public with a beautiful post just a month later, in May.
“There were times I was out with him and people would ask for a picture of me, and then they’d see him and react,” Laura explained. “One person was like, ‘That’s not your husband!’ I’m not married. So I thought, ‘I’m just going to end this.’ Plus, I’m big on social media. I’m an open book, so it was just a matter of time.”
Laura and Wes were co-stars back in the day on GL, and now they’re castmates once again on GH with his recent addition to the soap’s cast as Peter August. Whether the two will share many scenes together in Port Charles remains to be seen, but stay tuned to find out!
