Shayne Dahl Lamas (born November 6, 1985) is an American actress. She is known for her role as the Young Carly Corinthos on General Hospital (2005) and as the winner of the twelfth season of The Bachelor.
Lamas is the daughter of Lorenzo Lamas and Michele Cathy Smith. Her grandparents were the Argentine actor Fernando Lamas and famous screen actress Arlene Dahl. She was previously engaged to British bachelor Matt Grant after being chosen during ABC's The Bachelor season 12. Grant proposed to Lamas in the show's season finale.
In July 2008, amid rumors of a split, Lamas and Matt Grant announced they were no longer engaged. "We tried hard to make it work but we realized that we were both heading in different directions," the duo said in a statement. "We truly care about each other and will remain close friends." Lamas gave birth to daughter Press Dahl Lamas-Richie on November 11, 2011, her first child with husband Nik Richie.
On November 14, 2009, she was stopped at a Sobriety checkpoint in Venice, California. After failing a Breathalyzer test, she was arrested for DUI. After her arrest, she released a statement admitting that she had consumed one drink the night of her arrest, and apologizing for her "lack of judgment."
On December 7, 2009, two days ahead of a scheduled court appearance, she pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of "wet reckless." She was fined $300, sentenced to three years' probation and ordered to undergo alcohol education and complete the L.A. County Morgue program.
