Rid your brains of any thoughts of Supernatural hunk Jensen Ackles possibly smarting over his Days of Our Lives role being recast. Greg Vaughan reveals in the Sept. 10 issue of Soap Opera Digest that fellow Dallas, Texas native Ackles called Vaughan up to wish him well as Salem's new Eric Brady. Said Vaughan on his exchange with Ackles:
"The character is near and dear to his heart and he said, 'Greg, it just gives me a little more gratification knowing that somebody I respect in the business is playing the part."
How cool is that? Two Texas-bred hunks getting along famously! For more of what Vaughan has to say about taking over the role of Samantha Jean's (Alison Sweeney) twin brother, pick up this week's Soap Opera Digest!
