While it looks like Greg Vaughan managed to get an awesome new acting gig, his Days of Our Lives schedule wreaked a little havoc.
The handsome daytime veteran took to social media to explain what exactly happened. It seems that he landed an exciting role on the hit CBS series, MacGyver. But unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be.
“It is with great pleasure that I was offered a role & opportunity to be apart of this great cast & show @macgyvercbs for which I greatly enjoyed, but due to my working schedule @nbcdays it then required recasting.”
That’s a real shame because Vaughan would have been incredible on that show’s reboot. The original starred former General Hospital star Richard Dean Anderson (ex-Jeff Webber) in the title role. It would have been fun for fans to see him on it, and Vaughan is no stranger to primetime roles.
During his time away from the show (when Eric was in jail for killing Daniel), Vaughan appeared on Queen Sugar on Oprah’s OWN Network. He also had a contract role on the WB series, the original Charmed, and guested on six episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210.
But the actor knows that he’s lucky to be working and made sure fans knew that he is indeed grateful about that.
“Thankful to be a working actor on every platform! Thank you ALL 🙏🏻 #MacGyver #DaysofourLives”
Soap Hub is also grateful — for any chance to see Vaughan on our TV screens — day or night.
