Viewers are asking is Eric Brady leaving Days of Our Lives? Here’s the latest on Greg Vaughan’s status at the NBC sudser and whether he’s on his way out. Fans know that DOOL likes to shuffle its cast of characters. That means Eric or anyone else on the scene in Salem could be sent off, killed off, and then abruptly resurrected or brought back to town at any time. So what will happen with Eric Brady? Let’s see.
What Happens to Eric Brady on Days of Our Lives?
It seems that Eric never gets to be happy on DOOL. First, his soul mate Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) was blackmailed into leaving town by Brady Black (Eric Martsolf). Then she was back but Xander Cook (Paul Telfer) forced her to marry him. Then, by all accounts, Nicole was blown up in the warehouse. That spiraled him into grief.
Then, Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) came to Days of Our Lives. And Eric Brady fell for another of his brother’s lovers. That tormented him for months and when they finally got together bam! There’s Nicole back from the not-so-dead. Although it crushed Sarah, that should have been a happy ending for Eric, right?
Nicole Shuns Eric on DOOL
It seems the Days of Our Lives writers couldn’t let Eric Brady have more than five minutes of happiness. Xander faked Holly Jonas’ death to punish Nicole and that sent her raging. Nicole told Eric to keep her daughter safe right before she “died” at the warehouse. Instead, he let Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin) take custody based on a document Nicole signed.
Then Chloe was under threat from the cartel. Now, Nicole blames Eric for not hanging on tight to Holly as they still think the cartel killed little Holly. In fact, this is all down to Xander’s twisted obsession with Nicole. But Nicole rages at Eric and then turns back to Brady for comfort. So, Nicole breaks Eric’s heart again on DOOL.
Will Eric Brady Leave Days of Our Lives Soon?
As of now on DOOL, Sarah commits to marry Rex Brady (Kyle Lowder) since Eric ripped out her heart. But, with the soap shooting so far ahead, we have lots of information at hand. Rex runs off in August. Sarah is not slated to go with him. Linsey’s contract continues as far as we know.
So what about Eric Brady on Days of Our Lives? There are no signs at all that Greg Vaughan’s contract is up. Last year, he won an Emmy for his portrayal of a devastated Eric and he continues to do great work. Lots of info leaked about other actor exits from the soap, but he is not on the list of those known to be exiting.
For now, it seems that talk of Eric Brady exiting DOOL is nothing but speculation. With Rex exiting in late summer, that might leave Eric juggling both Sarah and Nicole. Because there is also no exit info for either of the women in Eric’s life. So fans of the NBC soap can relax and enjoy Greg Vaughan as Eric Brady as he’s once again crushed by bad romance.
