‘General Hospital’ Breaking News: Laura Wright’s Mom Passed Away

General Hospital fans look for details of Laura Wright’s mom passing

Laura posted on her Instagram today but did not give details about how her mother died. She explained that her mom can rest now and has passed away. Laura is obviously heartbroken over this loss. The GH star is getting a lot of support from fans because they all love her so much.

Laura Wright made it clear she was close to her mom in the photo above. She was always posting about spending time with her on Mother’s Day. If something was wrong with her, then the General Hospital star didn’t share the news with fans until her passing.

Will the death affect General Hospital?

It could end up affecting the storylines on General Hospital. Laura Wright’s GH character on the show, Carly Corinthos, is on pretty much every single episode. She may need to take a bit of time off to focus on her family. Laura will have a funeral to plan and attend.

They might end up just filming a few episodes without Carly Corinthos in them. The other option is to have someone come in and play the character for just a few times until Laura is up to returning to work. She is dating Wes Ramsey (Peter August/Henrik Faison) so it is possible it could affect him as well. His character would be a bit easier to do a few episodes without, though.
