Some GEN­ERAL HOSPI­TAL fans think that Ja­son and Carly are a lit­tle bit too close for com­fort… es­pe­cially given the fact they were once lovers! One per­son who doesn’t agree? Carly’s por­trayer, Laura Wright!

“It’s the best friend­ship on the show,” she says. “He’s like her safety net. It wouldn’t be a healthy re­la­tion­ship to rely on some­one that much ro­man­ti­cally… but as a friend­ship, it’s in­cred­i­ble.

“He’s her best friend,” she goes on, “and there’s a loy­alty they share that is be­yond any­thing else.”

And the open-minded en­forcer is not a bad bestie to have — es­pe­cially for some­one like Carly, who tends to make trou­ble any­where she doesn’t find it. “Ja­son sees peo­ple dif­fer­ently, and I think it’s be­cause he needs peo­ple dif­fer­ently,” Wright ex­plains. “A lot of times, our per­cep­tion of other peo­ple is blocked by our own needs and ex­pec­ta­tions in life. We’re such flawed peo­ple, so the re­la­tion­ships we have are re­flec­tions of what we see in our­selves.

“Well, Ja­son is so self­less,” she con­tin­ues. “It’s easy for him to see what oth­ers need, be­cause he seems to need so lit­tle. He sees the big­ger pic­ture, and he sees that with Carly.”

As long as Mau­rice Be­nard’s Sonny is around, Wright doesn’t see her char­ac­ter’s feel­ings shift­ing. “The only way that would work is if Mau­rice ever de­cided to leave and, in the loss of Sonny, Carly and Ja­son found each other. The love is there with Ja­son, but they’re such great friends, and Carly and Sonny are so bonded as hus­band and wife at this mo­ment. They just are.

“And it’s a beau­ti­ful truth that Sonny’s ter­ri­ble, but he’s my ter­ri­ble,” she adds. “To own that is beau­ti­ful, be­cause ev­ery­one’s got their stuff. They may not be mob­sters, but you know what I mean!”

“If I had any beer left, I’d share it with you.”
