Viewers have seen a lot of changes to the cast of "Days of our Lives" during the 50th Anniversary. Greg Vaughan announced exclusively to Serial Soap in an interview that he's leaving his "Days" role as Eric Brady. The actor returned to "Days" as Eric Brady November 13, 2012. During that time, Soaps.com had interviewed Greg Vaughn about his DOOL role. He told us, "Well, it has been a wonderful ride so far, a very interesting journey. But they are a very demanding group of actors I am working with. I didn’t realize how much I was going to get hazed and how everyone was going to treat me – they abuse me! They totally take advantage of me being a newbie. No – they have been great, honestly."

The actor has already been in a new role in the Hallmark movie, The Christmas Note, which incidentally, aired last night.

When Soaps.com learns Vaughan's last airdate, we'll update you.

You can find out who else is returning to Days of our Lives for the 50th anniversary.
