General Hospital Spoilers – Sarah Joy Brown Returned To The ABC Sudser As A Different Character
In 2008 Brown rejoined the show albeit in a different role: Claudia Zacchara. Her stay was brief and she exited the following year. Claudia was a mob boss chick, and her dad and brother were also on the show. Brandon Barash played the part of Johnny Zacchara who was involved with Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan). Barash is now on Days of our Lives as Jake Lambert, the identical twin of Stefan DiMera.
At the time she returned to GH Laura Wright was in the role of Carly. While fans were happy to see Brown back, it just wasn’t the same for some and it was quite jarring for others who remembered her as Carly. By that time Wright had put her own stamp of the beloved character and seeing Brown as a much different character was a little hard to accept.
At this point in time Carly continues to be a core character and there is speculation that she and bestie Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) will finally seal the deal.
