Days of Our Lives star Greg Vaughan recently explained why his character Eric Brady has been acting a little different on the small screen lately.

Days of Our Lives Star Greg Vaughan Explains Why Eric Brady Seems So Different Lately

Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Greg admitted that he wanted Eric to be more of a leading man and of course, have his own storyline. He explained, “He’d been holier-than-thou for so long. That’s really how I felt, and the state of mind I was at with Ron, having the conversation, ‘I’m bored. I’m tired of being the good guy. I don’t want to be that guy anymore.’”

Thankfully, Days of Our Lives Head Writer Ron Carlivati heard exactly what he had to say and did something about it. Greg said, “To go from the priesthood to being the American Gigolo was not what I expected,” he admits with a laugh. “Eric’s never been in and out of the bedroom so much with so many different women. He had always been a very monogamous individual. I was like, ‘Ron, wow. This is way far left. Okay. That’s our guy.’ Now it’s just trying to [play him] with the right motivation and intention, not making excuses, and being accountable for his actions.”

Greg also said that it’s an absolute dream for him to be doing what he’s doing. In other words, he absolutely loves his job. He put it this way, “It’s the best of both worlds. I provide the best for my boys with education, opportunities, sports.… It’s a very communal environment. It’s organizations, functions and gatherings from Halloween parties to park parties. It’s going to football games. There are, like, 15,000 people at a football game on a Friday night. It’s a beautiful place. My children can walk or ride their razors and bicycles with friends. I’m setting them up more so for success in my eyes than failure, giving them the best of everything I can.”
