biography d
  • Carly's tag-along trip to her cousin’s audition in 1993 turned out
  • to be her lucky day and the start of her career as an actress.
  • While there, the cute three-year-old was spotted by the casting
  • director and asked if she would consider working for them. While
  • Carly’s mom, Kelli, was hesitant at first, the prospects of tucking
  • away money for a college education appealed to her.
  • “Carly going to Chicago once a month for a job would be fine as
  • long as it didn’t interfere with our family time,” Kelli said.
  • After her first job, she began doing print work in Chicago for
  • Sears, K-Mart, Spiegel, Land’s End, Chuck E. Cheese’s, and many
  • other print advertisers. Two years later in 1995, renowned child
  • director Bob Ebel was so taken by Carly’s wide-eyed innocence
  • and extra spark of enthusiasm, he asked her to do a few
  • commercials.
  • It was one of Ebel’s commercials - the one for Shake n’ Bake -
  • which caught the eye of General Hospital cast member Kin Shriner.
  • In 1997, ABC had decided that Shriner’s character, Scotty
  • Baldwin, should have a daughter. Since he would be working very
  • closely with the new cast member, Shriner asked if he could
  • participate in the selection of Baldwin’s daughter.
  • Two weeks before a decision was to be made, the studio was
  • down to five candidates for the part and still uncertain of whom to
  • cast. It was at this serendipitous time that Carly’s commercial for
  • Shake n’ Bake began to air on national television.
  • Shriner said, “Every time I turned on the tube, there was this
  • blonde-haired, blue-eyed, quirky little girl that made me laugh.”
  • Knowing that Scotty Baldwin had found his daughter at last,
  • Shriner immediately showed the commercial to GH casting director
  • Mark Teschner and executive producer, Wendy Riche.
  • by Louie Neira
  • They agreed to fly Carly out from her hometown of Valparaiso,
  • Indiana for the screen test. Carly’s open and honest, friendly attitude
  • quickly won over Shriner, Teschner, and everyone else who met her.
  • In all likelihood, she already had the part as she left the audition
  • room, but on her way out the door, Carly turned and said to them,
  • “Hey! You all should come back to our hotel – they put us up in a
  • real nice one with a pool,” not knowing that “they” were standing in
  • front of her, Carly said goodbye, returning home with a four-year
  • contract, and most of all, Shriner as a best friend for life.
