( — For twenty years Laura Wright has entertained daytime viewers with such popular characters as Ally Rescott Bowman on “Loving” and “The City,” and Cassie Layne Winslow on “Guiding Light,” but it was her 2005 debut on “General Hospital” as the ferocious Carly Jacks that has garnered her the attention she rightfully deserved. At the “38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” on Sunday, June 19, Wright received her first Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, which also marked the first time she had ever been nominated for an Emmy. So what was going through her head that night? The actress spoke to Soap Opera Network right after her win and shared some interesting information.

Speaking about the piece she put together as her Emmy reel, Wright said “I love working with Steve Burton, that was my first day working with Chad [Duell]. We worked really hard and this feels really good.” But for more on what she had to say and where she’s spending her vacation now that “General Hospital” is dark (not currently in production), watch our Soap Opera Network: Backstage at the Daytime Emmy Awards interview below.
