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: Ben Recalls The Terror He Caused In The Cabin!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

On Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has brought Ciara (Victoria Konefal) to a very familiar place to him, the old abandoned cabin in the woods where he had: tied up Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail, where he had traumatized Abigail, and where she had given birth to Thomas, and where he murdered the midwife, Wendy (Denice Duff).  Throughout the episode, Ben flashes back to all those moments in time, and the heinous acts he perpetrated.

For this episode, DAYS re-created these key scenes in Ben and Abigail’s back-story, by having Marci Miller redo the scenes, originally played at the time by Kate Mansi.  Both Wilson and Miller were riveting to watch.

In present time, as Ben tends to Ciara’s wounds, he looks around the cabin and flashes to kidnapping Abigail.  When Ciara finally starts regaining consciousness and starts to moan, it brings back memories of Wendy aiding Abigail in the birth of her son, Thomas.  He recalls murdering Wendy and burying her.  Ben begins to relive more and more moments, and then the horrific time he wanted to set Chad and Abby on fire.  Ben continues to get more beside himself, and begins to pant recalling it all.

Later, Ben is standing in a corner, staring at the flame of the lighter that had been used to start the fire that had nearly killed Chabby. Just then, Ciara wakes up and takes a look at Ben. and she screams,”Oh my God.”

What did you think of the performance of Rob Scott Wilson? What did you think about Marci Miller redoing the scenes originally that aired that were played by Kate Mani? Comment below.
