General Hospital Star Laura Wright Opens Up About Her First Day In Port Charles

“My first day, I had to work all day long, in full makeup,” Laura recalled to Soaps In Depth, “and you never saw anything but my hand. It was the train crash that everybody was in years ago. Don’t you love how, whenever there’s a crisis on the show, everyone’s there?”

Laura continued, “I was in shock because when I left GL, we didn’t have dress rehearsal anymore and just went straight to tape with one take. I got to General Hospital and we were shooting the crash ’til midnight. ‘What the hell? I thought those days were gone?’ I think the next day, you saw my face… but I don’t think I spoke yet.”

With that said, Laura added that she was definitely a bag of nerves even though she was already a seasoned soap star, thanks to the many years she spent on Guiding Light.

“The first day I worked, it was really busy,” she explained. “We were doing stunts, and there was smoke and fire. I was nervous and trying to figure it all out. It was my third soap and even though it’s all the same thing, every show does it differently. So I really just sat back and watched. I also didn’t really know anyone but [former THE CITY leading man] Ted King (ex-Alcazar). I kind of did my own thing.”
