On Sunday, exited Days of our Lives star Greg Vaughan (Ex-Eric) was the special guest on After Buzz TV’s weekly episode Dishin Days. While there are still a few months to go on-screen for the character of Eric Brady (as played by Vaughan), the popular actor is already pursuing the next move in his enduring career.
One of the questions that keeps popping up on the minds of soap fans everywhere and on social media, is if Vaughan would be up for making a return to the role of Lucky Spencer on General Hospital, a role that he played from 2003-2009, now that he is available.
During Dishin Days, a caller asked Greg if he would want tocome back to GH. Vaughan replied: “Of course, if the opportunity was there, and if it’s right. I think daytime television is a wonderful platform, and I have had some amazing opportunities.”
Greg went to to say: “I was speaking with Michelle Stafford (Nina, GH) and Maurice Benard (Sonny, GH) just the other day and Maurice was so enamored with my beard (Laughs).” He then added: “I’m not saying I wouldn’t be open arms (to return), it’s just that I do have another opportunity, and if it does come to fruition then I won’t be going anywhere else in the daytime world. I’ve got a lot of irons in the fire, but they know where to find me, if needed.”
As to what DAYS fans can expect for Eric in the coming months as Greg wraps-up his run on-screen, Vaughan teased: “When it comes down to it … it’s going to be jaw-dropping.” He also added the door has been left open for Eric to return to Salem: “Yes, I would say it’s definitely open for Eric to come back on the canvas. “
