After two years of portraying Salem priest Eric Brady, Days of Our Lives’ Greg Vaughan is moving on. The always candid and straightforward actor has mixed reviews about his character’s story direction. Below, Vaughan speaks out about frustrating and forced plot turns – past, present and future. Namely, the abrupt end of Eric and Nicole and rapid segue to the upcoming Eric and Serena relationship.

First of all, what are your thoughts about Eric’s days as a priest being over?

It’s a love/hate thing. I’m sad. I loved the journey. It was a great ride… better than what I anticipated it to be. It opened a lot of doors and channels to new things. It’s been an experience. I’m looking forward to what’s to come next.

Eric and Nicole are over and there’s a new woman (Melissa Archer’s Serena) coming into his life. How do you feel about this new story turn?

I will let the fans [decide]… I think that there are a lot of elements that… You know when you lift the rug, sweep a bunch of sh*@*t under it, cover it up, and leave it alone? Unfortunately, in this situation, that’s kind of what happened with Eric and Nicole. Then, there’s a new element… I think they’re forcing something before allowing it to evolve.

Like allowing Eric to truly get over Nicole before he moves onto a new relationship with another woman?

Yeah. I think Eric needed to go on a journey alone. [This new relationship] is kind of forced… How they were playing Eric and Nicole, when Eric came back to the canvas was nice. The formula really helped move it along. They stretched it out for a long period of time, where you either rooted for them or were bored to death. But you were waiting for something. Sometimes [the process] can be too long. People really want [resolution] fast. This [story] is the polar opposite.

What’s it been like working with a different leading lady?

It’s new. It’s a new journey. I think I’m easy to work with. I’m always curious about what [a new actor is] bringing to the table emotionally, physically… I’ve been fortunate to have worked with Ari (Zucker, Nicole). We have a great cast.

What can you share about Eric and Serena’s storyline?

This is part of Eric’s past, while he was away from Salem. While he was gone, he was in a relationship with this girl. This is a past girlfriend, a relationship he was involved with off camera. It’s part of Eric’s journey before he was a priest.

Are you enjoying the story so far?

It’s very early in the game. It’s still a journey.
