Biography

Carlys 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.
