I’m revisiting the character, and putting the training wheels back on, seeing where he’s matured while dealing with the aftermath of Eric and Nicole’s [Arianne Zucker] marriage not working. I think there’s a lot of growth that’s taking shape, so he’s coming to make amends.
The star is thrilled to reteam with Zucker, musing:
Once we come together, you know it’s going to be good. There’s going to be this magic, this little connection. It’s really like getting on a bike; it’s so easy. We get together and we don’t have to rehearse, so it’s just nice to be in her company. We have really great stuff together and it’s always lovely to do. I always look forward to it. It’s never a dull moment with her.
What else can fans expect of Eric, last seen in Salem in July 2021? Vaughan commented:
I just want to take it down a new road. I’m very curious. I’m really taking a different approach, and just trying to see if I can navigate where his path leads him. I just want it to be interesting. DAYS has been such an integral part of who I am and I’m proud of what I’ve been able to do in my time here. It’s just been great and I’m really trying to show that there’s been a growth experience for Eric between where he was and where he is now.
