Sharyn Hodgson (born 25 August, 1968 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia) is an Australian actress, best known for playing the role of Carly Lucini (née Morris) in the popular soap opera, "Home and Away" (1988—1991; 1997; 1998; 2000; 2001; 2002 & 2008).


Hodgson began a drama course with Phillip Street Drama School when she was 15. She spent four years studying there on Saturday mornings, which led to work with the Film and Television School appearing in films for students.After completing her HSC, she worked in a retail store for a couple of months before auditioning for Seven Network's fledgling soap opera, "Home and Away" in 1987. She was successfully cast and became one of the original characters to appear in the programme, which initially aired in January 1988. She played Carly Morris, the foster daughter of Pippa and Tom Fletcher, who had suffered severe child abuse from her biological father. During her time on the show, Hodgson's troubled character weathered rape, alcoholism, an array of relationship and family problems, but finally found love with soldier Ben Lucini (Julian McMahon) in 1991, and left Summer Bay the same year to begin a family elsewhere.

Following this, Hodgson was one of several "Home and Away" cast-members to star in a stage musical about the soap, which toured the UK in 1991. Julian McMahon, Justine Clarke, Mouche Phillips and Adam Willits also starred. [" [ Home and Away musical] ", "mook". URL last accessed on 2007-01-29.]

Since her initial on-screen departure, Hodgson has made numerous brief returns to "Home and Away" to visit her foster family or attend important events in the bay. Hodgson was last seen on-screen as Carly in 2008. She returned briefly along with Adam Willits (Steven Matheson) and Debra Lawrance (Pippa Ross) for the departure of one of the soap's original cast members, Kate Ritchie, who played Sally Fletcher.

In between her stints in "Home and Away", Hodgson has appeared in episodes of "Blue Heelers", "Police Rescue" (1995), "Wildside" (1998) and "Big Sky" playing Jodie Turner (1997-1999).
