33 August 21st, 2015 Greg Vaughan Gets Contract Extension At Days of our Lives!

Courtesy/NBC

Good news today from fan favorite Greg Vaughan of Days of our Lives!  For those worried that perhaps Eric Brady might be part of the Salem serial murder killing spree, rest assured.  That’s apparently not happening.

Vaughan tweeted that he has re-signed with the NBC soap opera for more time in Salem, plus Greg related he also will be featured in a new movie from the Hallmark Channel.

In his tweet, Greg excitedly shared to his fans: “Great day today! Official contract extension @DaysofourLives & new movie @hallmarkchannel Truly Blessed!”

Does this mean that Ericole will finally have their chance at love and it will stick this time?  Viewers next week will see the end of the line for Vaughan’s other DAYS love interest, Melissa Archer (Serena) when she meets her maker, and from what has been previewed it looks like it might be Eric who stumbles upon her lifeless body.

So, happy to hear Greg will be sticking around Salem?  Hoping that Eric and Nicole (Arianne Zucker) will build a future together? Comment below!

    I happy Greg will be sticking around, but upset to hear/read it! DAYS’ performers should be under a gag order. They shouldn’t discuss contract renewals, which would add suspense to the serial murder storyline. Put a lid on it, DAYS!!!!!

    I was hoping Erik would return to the priesthood and turn out to be the killer…each victim would have been murdered by strangulation and found wth a rosary around their neck and one of the Ten Commandments pinned to their clothing…and yet the Salem police cant figure out whodunnit…oops, sorry, ive watched to much GH and their dumb cops…lol

    We don’t know for how long the contract extension was for. Eric may have split personality we don’t know about yet. GG commented that he knows who the killer is and its someone you would never suspect. The killer is suppose to be aroundbinto 2016.

    I’m sure he didn’t post without at least tacit approval from his bosses at Days. There may be some reason they want people to know his character in particular is sticking around. Or, it is a soap: it may be a ruse. New contract…. but they will bump off Eric in 13 weeks. You never know!

    Or the character is bumped off and the extension is needed for some appearance beyond the grave– or they did kill him off but changed their mind and want to bring him back from the dead like they did during the infamous killing spree a few years back when pretty much everyone in town was murdered only to be found alive months later on Stefano’s island.

    I’m so happy to find out that Greg has been extended. He’s a good actor, and the material the previous writing team gave him was so subpar. I hope this means great things for Eric.

    Love Greg Vaughan. Happy he is sticking around. Eric needs a boost though.

    DOOL was great today… love, suspense, mystery… keep up the great work.

    Off topic: I’m really going to miss Daniel Cosgrove. Bad move losing Aiden Jennings.

    I always said Hope shouldve been paired with Rafe and now they seem to be going there…wouldve prefered Aiden with Jen!!!

    They need to pair Jen with someone interesting (i.e. not Daniel). Holding out hope for a Jack return for the 50th.

    though, Kayla always seemed to have her eyes on Aidan pre-Hope & Aidan. I loved watching that radiant look in Mary Beth’s eyes! She wanted him so bad! :P

    ALLright : I am giving Greg Vaughan a reprieve

    a let … that his character … per Deidre Hall…. when she and we found out that he was cast to play her son….. ” he’s too beautiful”

    oh! notwithstanding… the writing…. no ones good enough for him… has Kristen put her stamp on his libido? is he caught in the middle of his virtue and wanton ideal

    is the retread of Nicole still rendering or piquing ?

    darned tootin ! Greg Vaughan is today’ current William Holden !

    he just needs a story

    Brady just needs a story… stop being so entitled… how dare he grandstand and lord over Jeanne Theresa !

    if Daniel is so deserving an act… PUT HIM BACKBURNER.. now that real troops are back ON

    Totally agree. Jeanne Theresa can do so much better than bully Brady. Daniel needs to be back burnered. They need to perk up the writing for Eric. He is ‘too beautiful’.

    I like Greg. But the character of Eric needs a complete overhaul. He’s a horrible character in his current incarnation — always whining, always yelling, enough!

    He’s BORING!!!!!!!

    I am glad I am not the ONLY one who thinks that his character of Eric is about as exciting as unbuttered toast.
    I do not have anything against the actor, I am happy to hear that he will remain on the show, but they need to spice up his lines, or something – his character is very whiney and childish and overall, bland to watch. Aside from that I guess I love him LoL.

  11. Mo says:

    I just find him so blah.

    I was hoping he wouldnt resign and sign with GH as Lucky. The character needs to be on the show and he was damn good. JJ gets the upper hand because of his chemistry with TG. But Greg was really good on GH.

    GREG VAUGHAN IS MY FAVORITE…I think he is a great actor, a professional who puts himself into the script and reacts naturally..Days is lucky to have him..GH lost a fine Lucky when he left. I LOVED FATHER ERIC.. but Greg needs Nicole…#ERICOLE.. looking forward to a new..improved storyline for @greg_vaughan..
