Those who will miss Greg Vaughan when he wraps up his run as Eric Brady on-screen on Days of our Lives sometime this April, will now know where to find the popular fan favorite next.  Vaughan has been cast in Oprah Winfrey and Selma director, Ava DuVerney’s new TV series for OWN entitled Queen Sugar!

Last week, Vaughan shared some key iconic streets of New Orleans and posted a few pictures announcing his exciting news, including a tweet that related:  “Let the Magic begin @AVAETC @OWNTV @QueenSugarOWN #queensugar #avadevernay #owntv #gregvaughan #newseries”

In Queen Sugar, the series follows the life of two sisters, Nova Bordelon, the formidable journalist and activist from New Orleans, and Charley Bordelon a modern woman, who, with her teenage daughter Micah, leaves her upscale apartment in Los Angeles and moves to the heart of Louisiana to claim an inheritance from her recently departed father – an 800-acre sugarcane farm.   The series is based on the book Queen Sugar by Natalie Baszile.

Vaughan will portray Calvin, a cop and longtime lover of Nova (Rutina Wesley), who shares a deep connection with her despite being married.

Dondre Whitfield, Dawn-Lyen Gardner and Omar Dorsey are just some of the other actors attached to the project.

So, what do you think of Greg landing his first role post-DAYS with Oprah and Ava on their new series?  Share your thoughts below!

congrats to greg!!!
he will be sorely missed on days
last weeks interaction with a drunk eric and drugged up jen was the highlight of last week!, of course the powers that be left the audience hanging for more of rafe/ hope, crying nicole and something about belle and phillip
greg vaughan and melissa reeves chemistry was so passionate and sordid that it left me wanting way more….too bad it looks like not much more will come of this potential explosive affair!
gregs such a keeper and obviously wouldnt last long unemployed, days loss is oprahs gain! unfortunatly days may have lost a viewer but i look forward to his new endevour

Well, another case of a talented actor taking that next step. I would bitch about DAYS releasing him or GH not signing him BUT this is Good for Greg and its a nice step up. Good luck sir! One other compliment for Greg. You know there will never be another Lucky Spenser like there will never be another Billy Abbott BUT Greg did quite well as Lucky and Jason Thompson seems to be capable of filling Billy Miller’s shoes.

Congratulations to Greg. He’s a terrific actor and I always enjoy his work. I’m surprised his scenes will continue on Days until April. Not that I’m complaining. I don’t want him to go. I’m just shocked they are dragging out his departure. The very best of luck to Greg in his future.

I’ve never thought of him as a good actor until the drunk scenes with Jennifer Horton the other day. I was dumbfounded and wondered why he played luck Spencer with such stiff dopey Ness when he can obviously play darkwr

I can NOT fathom why soap after soap has failed to recognize this man’s talent. I always believed him and Nicole were endgame. They had off the charts chemistry. But he played surly and depressed as Eric very well too LOL.

This is always good news to see an actor on soaps find work outside the genre. Goes to show they can do other things besides soaps as others have said in the past which really irritates me.

Lots of good luck, Greg! Sounds like a great role! Loved you on Days! Sorry you are leaving. We will miss you, but I wish you the best! Hope Eric can come back and visit!

Now they’ve gone and done it–having Joey smother Ava! Though Hope’s shooting of Stefano was bad enough. Guess Greg Vaughan is glad he’s leaving this sinking ship.
Seems Days has gone the way of GH. Just sad–some much potential after the so called “revival” of Day! Arrrgh!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
