Only One

Laura Wright (Carly) just had to have Chloe Lanier for Nelle!

GH con­sid­ered casting a dif­fer­ent Nelle last year, but Laura Wright (Carly) wasn’t in­ter­ested in any­one but Chloe Lanier for the role. “They told me the story idea over a year ago and asked, ‘What do you think if we got Chloe?’” Wright re­calls. “I was like, ‘Do it!’ But then they couldn’t make it hap­pen. Chloe was busy shoot­ing KING­DOM, so they were go­ing to look for some­one else.” Wright and ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Frank Valen­tini, how­ever, voted to hold the story for Lanier, who’d blown them away when she played a young Pat in the 52nd an­niver­sary flashback episode. “We had to make it hap­pen,” Wright says. “I get to work with a lot of in­cred­i­ble ac­tors, but a young woman who’s go­ing to come in and play my sis­ter — a part of my fam­ily — in a sto­ry­line that re­flects Carly’s past? That needed to be spe­cial, and Chloe’s amaz­ing. We have a great time work­ing to­gether. Plus, you don’t want to go to work ev­ery­day and not like your co-star!”

Wright didn’t want any­one but Lanier.
