General Hospital spoilers presents the interview highlights of what Billy Miller and Laura Wright had to say about what’s coming up on GH. As part of the ABC Summer Press Tour, Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos) and Billy Miller (Jake Doe/Jason Morgan) sat down for an interview with Michael Fairman at On-Air On-Soaps. They talked about the Carly and Jake BFF dynamic, the Carly and Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) wedding and the big Jake as Jason reveal. Here’s a look at the interview highlights…
Laura says she likes that Carly has a best friend again despite Carly and Jake not knowing why they are drawn to each other. One of the funniest points of the interview was when Fairman asked if it was difficult for Miller to form the same type of relationship with Laura like she had with Steve Burton before – Miller laughingly said “slut” and Wright broke down laughing. Miller says the Carly/Jake BFF-ship works because “she talks, I nod and then they hug.” Wright says Jake is Carly’s BFF just because he doesn’t interrupt her.
I do have to take issue with Wright’s accuracy about her character on one point from the interview, though. When she and Fairman discussed the impending nuptials, Wright mentioned it’s the first Sonny/Carly wedding where she will be the bride. That’s technically untrue – when Carly married Sonny back in 2007 (granted she was crying and only did it to keep from testifying against him) – it was Laura Wright and she was the bride in a Sonny/Carly wedding – it just wasn’t pretty. So this is wedding #5 and will be Wright’s second official ceremony.
Miller and Wright hinted that Jake may be Carly’s “best person” at the ceremony and Miller even joked about Jake being a bridesmaid and wearing an aquamarine dress. They are shooting the wedding scenes this week, but at the time of the interview, neither was sure of the details. Miller asked Wright if she and Sonny would actually go through with the wedding and Wright said “you have to watch it and find out.” Fairman asked Wright if she knows and she said, “Of course I do.” About Sonny and Carly’s ceremony, Wright added, “I can tell you it’s going to be awesome.”
Then Fairman finally got to the subject of the big Jake as Jason reveal, Miller said, “Are you kidding? Everybody already knows who I am. I don’t know.” Wright mentioned that Jake’s big reveal would not be until November sweeps! What? Two and a half more months of Jake playing possum?? Nooooo! Then Wright added, “if not sooner.” (Please, please, please let it be sooner!) Miller asked jokingly if she’s been talking to the writers. She says no but says the Jake as Jason reveal seems like a “sweeps thing.”
Finally, Fairman asked Miller and Wright about their hopes for the characters under the new Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante regime. Miller says he thinks the new writers will take the show in “new directions” and “we’ll just have to see where we go” and added “they’re going to write great stuff.” Miller did offer a kind word for axed writer Ron Carlivati saying “he will be missed.” It’s nice that Miller offered that fond farewell – other cast members seem all too happy to see the back of Carlivati as head writer.
