Those who will miss Greg Vaughan when he wraps up his run as Eric Brady on-screen on Days of our Lives sometime this April, will now know where to find the popular fan favorite next. Vaughan has been cast in Oprah Winfrey and Selma director, Ava DuVerney’s new TV series for OWN entitled Queen Sugar!
Last week, Vaughan shared some key iconic streets of New Orleans and posted a few pictures announcing his exciting news, including a tweet that related: “Let the Magic begin
@AVAETC @OWNTV @QueenSugarOWN #queensugar #avadevernay #owntv #gregvaughan #newseries”
In Queen Sugar, the series follows the life of two sisters, Nova Bordelon, the formidable journalist and activist from New Orleans, and Charley Bordelon a modern woman, who, with her teenage daughter Micah, leaves her upscale apartment in Los Angeles and moves to the heart of Louisiana to claim an inheritance from her recently departed father – an 800-acre sugarcane farm. The series is based on the book Queen Sugar by Natalie Baszile.
Vaughan will portray Calvin, a cop and longtime lover of Nova (Rutina Wesley), who shares a deep connection with her despite being married.
Dondre Whitfield, Dawn-Lyen Gardner and Omar Dorsey are just some of the other actors attached to the project.
