Carly is a member of the legendary Spencer clan; daughter of Bobbie and niece of Luke. Since arriving in 1996 Carly has clawed her way from a rented room to the top of Port Charles society. Newly divorced from mob kingpin Sonny Corinthos, Carly is determined to rebuild her life on her own terms. Carly and Sonny share custody of their youngest child; Donna Corinthos. Carly's adult children Michael Corinthos and Josslyn Jacks are as tempestuous as their mother. Carly is increasingly drawn to Drew Cain; what started as friendship has become much more.
