Carly Schroeder (ex-Serena, PORT CHARLES) announced on Instagram that she has traded in her life in Hollywood to serve her country in the armed forces. “For 22 years, I’ve played dress up for a living,” Schroder posted. “As an actress I’ve been kidnapped, gone blind, nearly eaten by lions and murdered on more than one occasion. I tormented Lizzie McGuire’s little brother on the Disney Channel, was a dolphin trainer, the first female soccer player on an all-boys team, and Harrison Ford once rescued me during an intense home invasion. That’s exciting and all, but in January I decided to raise my right hand and swear into the United States Army. With a college degree from @callutheran in Criminal Justice, an ASVAB score of 92, and qualifying PFTs…. I was accepted into Army #OCS (Officer Candidate School).”

The actress was last seen in Port Charles on GH in July of 2017 when Serena returned home to visit with parents Scotty (Kin Shriner) and Lucy (Lynn Herring) after the passing of her grandpa, Lee, played by the late Peter Hansen.
