Laura Wright was born Laura Sisk in Washington, D.C. in 1970. She spent her early years in Maryland and it was there where she first developed her love of acting and entertaining.

All throughout her high school years, Wright performed in a series of plays, including Our Town and Gypsy. Wright got her start in television acting in a series of commercials and infomercials.

In the early nineties, she got her first big break when she was cast on the TV show Loving. She appeared on the show for four years before leaving and beginning a two-year run on The City.

Wright was slowly beginning to become familiar to audiences everywhere, and she solidified her star status in 1997 when she was cast on Guiding Light.

Her role as Cassie Winslow was one of the show’s most popular, and she was a constant presence on the show until 2005 when she left to pursue other opportunities. Immediately after her exit from Guiding Light, Wright began starring on another popular drama – the hugely popular show General Hospital

In her role as Carly Corinthos, Wright quickly became one of the show’s fan-favorite characters. 

In 1995, prior to her casting on General Hospital, Laura Wright married an architect named John Wright. She continued to use his last name professionally as her career path continued.

She and her husband welcomed two children, a daughter named Lauren, born in 1998, and a son named Michael, born in 2000.

According to reports, Ramsey fell for Wright hard and jumped at the opportunity to ask her out on a date. They began dating, and much to the delight of fans everywhere, they don’t hesitate to share photos of their life together on social media.

While some have speculated that the two are engaged or even secretly married, Wright recently clarified that she and Ramsey are “not engaged. Just living in love and super happy.”

It is not the first time that the two have had to dispel rumors about their love life. Previously, Wright had to deny that she was pregnant. No matter what the future holds for Wright and Ramsey, it is clear that they are happy, thriving, and content with life.
