Back on on July 23, we reported that Greg Vaughan was the latest Days of our Lives cast member to announce that he wouldn’t be returning when the show went back to production after its shutdown. The Daytime Emmy winner confirmed his exit in a podcast — and also teased a possible return down the line. A veteran of The Young and the Restless (as Diego) and General Hospital (as Lucky), Vaughan has been on the NBC soap opera since 2012. He’ll last air as Eric — at least for now — on September 23, according to Soap Opera Digest. Should the show opt to recast his role in his absence — you’ll recall that he wasn’t Days of our Lives’ first Eric — we might recommend any of these handsome daytime veterans.
