Greg Vaughan is Leaving 'Days of Our Lives' After Eight Years

Greg Vaughan is saying goodbye to Days of Our Lives.

The 47-year-old actor, who plays Eric Brady, announced on Wednesday (July 22) that he is leaving the NBC soap opera.

“I’ve finished my reign at Days,” Greg said during his interview on the podcast That’s Awesome! With Steve and Bradford.

Back in November 2019, it was reported that the entire Days cast was released from their contracts as a cost-cutting measure, just a few months before NBC renewed the show.

“I’m taking a break, if you will. Days was going through a renewal negotiation and not knowing where they were going to go,” Greg added, while also mentioning that he felt his time on the daytime drama “was coming to an end, anyway.”

Greg joined Days eight years ago back in 2012. In 2018, he won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at the Daytime Emmy Awards.

He currently plays Calvin on OWN’s Queen Sugar.

Just a few days before, this Days actress shocked fans when she announced she was leaving the soap after neatly four decades.
