Probably but realistically in 16 years people change. And I liked Carly but given she left the show married to a crime boss, I imagine she's not the same person we remember.

- Chappell wants a "fresh take" on the character of Carly. She wants Carly to be "fun, vibrant and funny", and she says that she wants to "try to throw a few bits of Olivia into Carly". She says that her husband is referring to the character as "Carly II", and she says she's "not married to anything that happened 16 years ago." She likes that Carly "has a lot of strength, and she's smart", but she wants the writers to bring Carly back "with a lot more edge and a sense of humor".
"I will be turning Carly into Olivia. I don't care about Carly or any of her history or what kind of person she is. The only reason I'm doing this is because the show I really love have been discontinued."
It's so easy to read between the lines.
I know nothing of Olivia from GL but it bothers me CC stating she will be bringing Olivia in. I would think she would be excited to playing a different type of character unless she's trying to bring over the GL audience to Days.
