Greg Vaughan Leaving 'Days of our Lives'

Throughout his career, Greg Vaughan has played memorable characters in film (Poison Ivy, The New Seduction, Children of the Corn V), primetime television (Charmed, Beverly Hills 90210) and daytime drama (General Hospital, The Young and the Restless). The busy actor has wracked up an impressive list of credits, including his latest starring role for Hallmark in last night's world premiere of The Christmas Note. In 2012, Vaughan joined the cast of NBC daytime drama Days of our Lives as photojournalist-turned-priest Eric Brady. He now reveals to Serial Scoop that Days has elected to write out his popular character.

The character of Eric Brady has led a very complicated life. He left Salem in 2000 (played then by Jensen Ackles) as a photographer and returned 12 years later as a priest (played by Vaughan). In 2013, Eric dealt with the aftermath of being drugged and sexually assaulted by Kristen DiMera (played by Eileen Davidson), with Vaughan turning in one mesmerizing performance after another as the tortured character questioned his path in life. Since that time, Eric has been busy managing his longtime friendship/relationship with Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker). He also welcomed his ex, Serena Mason (Melissa Archer), to town only to see her murdered months later. He has now returned to his photography roots, and to the bottle.

Vaughan revealed in August that he had renewed his contract with Days. It turns out it was just a short-term extension to wrap up the character's story. It wasn't his decision to leave his popular character behind.

Judi Evans, Wally Kurth Off Contract at Days of our Lives

Apparently, Bo and Hope aren't the only Salem supercouple, who have reached the end of the line. According to behind-the-scenes sources, Judi Evans and Wally Kurth, who created the roles of Adrienne and Justin back in 1987, have been taken off contract at Days of our Lives.

The pair received the news on Monday, November 30, and were understandably surprised. After all, both actors had only been put back on contract with the soap earlier this year.

On March 30, 2015, Kurth tweeted: "Hey all, guess I should confirm. I did sign a contract with #Days. Which will require me to leave #GH. It's bittersweet. I can't do both."

Kurth, in fact, did leave his recurring role as Ned Ashton on General Hospital to return to Days full-time, shortly thereafter. Now, that contract has been terminated.

The Days writers had separated Adrienne and Justin a few months ago, after Justin had an affair with a co-worker named Elsa. Adrienne then found solace in Lucas' arms. Lately, however, Justin had grown closer to Eve, while comforting her over the loss of her daughter Paige.

There's no word yet as to whether or not Evans and Kurth will remain on the show as recurring players. No matter, don't expect the pair to be involved in major storyline moving forward. The two actors' screen time has dwindled considerably, since the departure of Freddie Smith, who played their son, Sonny.

Evans and Kurth will be both missed.

SOD: JPL Debuts as Philip

This week John Paul Lavoisier makes his first appearance as Kate and Victor's son.

One thing he was told before he started was Philip was working in company's out of town branches. He's come back to take over everything in Salem.

His reps were called to ask for a screen test. He was the only actor being seen that day and tested with Jen Lilley. Says it was a wonderful and fun scene- a power struggle between Theresa and Philip with a sexual overtone involved.

He was hesitant when offered the role. He wasn't sure about all of the dialogue he'd have to memorize because he hadn't done it in so long

He purposely didn't ask for a lot of information about the character because he didn't want to fill his head with a lot of stuff. His decision was to take each script and treat each script as the truth, but also be willing to divorce from the script if they gave him notes to change things after dress rehearsals.

He was so focused on creating his character that it didn't really hit him that he was a recast until people started mentioning other actors who played Philip. He remembers thinking he was like "the third husband" (laughs). At first he considered getting footage of the other actors but then nixed the idea.

He starts as Philip on December 10

SOD: Chad and Abigail escape

After Ben takes the baby, it becomes a life and death situation for Chad and Abigail. Smoke fills up in Abigail's lungs. While Chad had been in the cabin for a little while, Abby's gone through a traumatic experience and premature labor. Abby hadn't eaten nor had any water to drink. Chad has the strength to pull her out of the cabin. He does what he needs to do to make sure Abby is safe.

Chad and Abby don't know it but Rafe has put out an APB and a search is underway to find them. The search team includes JJ and Lani..
The smoke from the burning cabin makes it easy to find them quickly.

They are taken straight to the hospital because Abby needs a medical checkup after just giving birth.

Ben is found and taken to the Salem PD. By the time Chad and Abby are at the hospital, Ben has totally lost it.

Abigail arranges a meeting with Ben. It's her last chance to find her baby son.

Abigail realizes how crazy Ben is but also understands she has some power over him. She sees him for the sake of her child, knowing Chad will protect her.

Abigail can only get incomplete information from Ben. He tells her that the baby is in a motel.

Abigail, Chad and JJ and "everybody" (assuming Lani and Rafe?) goes on the search to find the baby

SOD: Good Vibrations-Stephen Nichols & Mary Beth Evans (Steve & Kayla); interview

Digest: MBE were you aware of Stephen's popularity with fans when you joined in 86

MBE: No. She didn't really know the show or Stephen, and she thinks it was probably better that way because it would have made her nervous.

Digest: What do you enjoy most about the story for Steve and Kayla today and why?

SN: The characters were originally from very different worlds. With so much history and their time apart it's interesting to see where they are so many years later

MBE: She enjoys getting to play their age now and not trying to re-create what they were in the past.

SN: Adds they are both getting to know more about Steve and Kayla and their relationship. The writers and producers are interested in delving deeper into things with S&K and the whole cast.

Digest: How do you keep the love story fresh today

SN: They love and respect each other & they don't have to pretend. Working with MBE is easy

MBE: Storylines have push and pull, or S&K work together to drive a story. They (SN&MBE) don't get tired of each other. Recalls first day back for SN & that he gave her a bouquet of yellow roses & made a speech on set about how happy and lucky he was to work with her again. They just work well together

Digest: Stephen how would you describe Steve's love for Kayla

SN: Steve sees Kayla as his savior, his angel. He realizes at some point women get tired of that role. Kayla is his center and he would've had a totally different life without her (it could've included premature death and jail time- his words lol). And he would've missed out on the joy of fatherhood.

Digest: How has aging Joey to a teen affected Steve and Kayla's story

SN: Nothing is more challenging for parents than adolescent years.- trying to hold on while they are wanting to let go. It's a hard balance. It's a wise move to age Joey because stakes are higher with a teenager. It's good story.

MBE: "With Joey it's like he went to bed a 6 year old and then woke up as a 16 year old. Now I think he's 19..." Adds that after 15 minutes JL as Joey it all made sense. He's growing so much as an actor. Storywise it's great because it brings more conflict. There's more push and pull. Like Ken Corday says, the multigenerational story lines are a Days thing. Now they have a great set of teens for the next generation.

Digest: Do you prefer romantic or high action drama scenes and why

SN: Likes to mix it up and there's a lot of opportunity for both in daytime

MBE: Loves the family stuff whether with Joey and Steve or the broader scenes with Bradys. She relates to the family aspect and thinks Days does it really well.

Digest: Stephen what is a typical day like when working with MBE

SN: He drops his stuff off in his room, gets a quick "paint job" and jumps over to Mary Beth's chair while she's getting hair and makeup

MBE: They run their lines at the makeup chair or right after, and then go to one of their dressing rooms to run it (the lines) over and over. They don't stop. Sometimes they take a 10 minute break and get back at it.

SN: Unless they are first up, they do their dry block then run lines until they're called to tape

MBE: They are both big fans of S&K and their love story so they try and stay true to it. They collaborate and give each other notes and suggestions. They have each other's back.

Digest: Do they get to talk about things other than work

SN: Talk about everything going on with them. MBE always has a story and he is happy to hear it all, as is everyone else

MBE: Then when it comes to shooting scenes they make a point to stop and look at each other to connect and stop all of the noise & focus. Then they do the scene. Both are good at listening to each other. It just works for them and she feels so lucky.

Digest: Do you make each other laugh on set? (my note LOL - either the interviewer's not done his research or enjoys being captain obvious)

SN: They have a similar funny bone. They buy into each other's zaniness easily.

MBE: In the old days they'd have fits of laughter and the producer (Al Rabin) would ask if they should move on to the next group. But they'd stop looking at each other and try to get it together/stop laughing. Now it happens more when they are running lines. It's funny when she learns the lines but doesn't say them exactly as written and Stephen will get a funny expression on his face and tell her it's not English- they'll start laughing.

SN: They've been caught in a laughing fit just as they're about to call action on set a time or two.

Digest: MBE How did you feel when SN left Days in 1990

MBE: Says it was a drag. Since PP also left, the show put Shane and Kayla together. She/MBE was and still is a huge fan of Patch and Kayla. She cared about their love story and didn't want to see Kayla rushed into a new relationship. A new regime came in and said "see ya" and she was left saying "Thats not what I meant". Some time later she joined GH and a couple of years after that SN joined her on the show.

SN: It was sweet to work with MBE on GH while it lasted. Enjoyed seeing her transform and play a different type of character. He saw her on ATWT too and is amazed at what she brings to each role. MBE is so talented and deserves all of the accolades that can be bestowed on an actor.

MBE: Thanks him and adds "See how sweet he is?" Thinks GH missed the boat. They had them there because of their Days history, but the characters were different…Also the story made them brother and sister (me chiming in for clarity - Stefan thought Katherine was his sister for a while-thanks to Alexis- so he dumped Katherine but didn't tell her why. They weren't actually related- and they reunited once Stefan realized that)

Digest: MBE- when SN joined Y&R in 2010 what effect did you think that would have for S&K's story?

MBE: She understood they couldn't bring Steve back to Days and that's one of the reasons Kayla divorced Steve. She remembers joking that they should say Steve lost his mind and moved to Genoa City and hung out with a woman named Ashley

Digest: What is it about S&K's love story that resonates so strongly with the viewers

SN: They were meant for each other if anyone ever was, just as he and MBE were meant to have this great friendship and working relationship for 30 years. He feels grateful and blessed every day that MBE is his partner on this journey.
(me: AWWWWW~!!!! :wub2: )

MBE: Feels the same way. There is an incredible sweetness about Patch - he's not afraid to cry. He might put on a false bravado trying to cover his real feelings . He has a unique persona. Stephen is like that in real life. Says she walked on set to him crying one day and wondered what was the matter…SN had just heard his daughter do an interview about her music (on the radio) and he was very moved by it.

Digest: What's your dream story for S&K

MBE: A romantic on location vacation somewhere far away (laughs)

SN: Says it's too deep a question for him…says ask the writers. He can only say a story that isn't too predictable, just like life.

Really enjoying the Patch/Kayla scenes, best part of the show.
Hate the Brady/Teresa stuff, just think what she has done ruined her character for me a long time ago.
Hate that Lucas/Adrienne haven't been on, I liked them together and Lucas should have been able to grieve his son.
Enjoy seeing Julie/Doug more, liked that they turned the Martin house into a bed/breakfast.
Hope will have her meltdown, she can have her time now to do what she must.
They have a lot of storylines running at once now, kinda reminds me of how GH ran for awhile. Kinda works...

SOD: Steve and Kayla get Engaged!

Well, first ...let's start with Ava....

She saying that she has leukemia and she wants Kayla to be her Doctor.

Now, how about a little Kayla and Steve....

Kayla updates Steve on this but he's not believing Ava at all. Kayla is feeling stuck between a rock and hard place. She's SO not a fan of Ava but she's a Doctor and has taken an oath to heal and help. The timing is pretty poor too with Bo just passing away and the stress of being his Doctor and being the rock with her family with this.

Steve finally gets the clue that it was Ava working with Joey to reunite them. Steve tells his son that he should not be working with Ava because she is dangerous.

Now the good stuff....

Steve and Kayla are getting closer and she realizes that Steve is the one she can lean on in good and bad times. This is Steve's dream. They spend Christmas with Joey and Steve surprised Kayla with an engagement ring! She says YES! They are saying that it's some pretty sweet scenes!
