    hes a bit old to play eric,me thinks someone in early 30′s should

  2. From bettyg

    Could use another male Brady, especially if Bo is leaving the show. But, I agree with Sam, Eric should be exactly the same age as Sami, right? They are twins, right?

    Why bother, they don’t keep people anyway. As soon as you get used to someone, they are gone. They baited the fans with bringing back the old characters we loved and look what’s happened. What was it all for when so many are now being canned. It’s a shame what they have done to some of the new characters. Look at Daniel who came to the show as an upstanding surgeon. Gave him that disease that made him unable to operate. What was that all for? Now they just have him going from woman to woman and doing the same with Rafe now. Some characters have just quickly disappeared. Some of the old characters are doing things they would never do….Kayla working full time at the Pub?? Guess there will be no hospital now that Lexi is gone. Tom Horton is rolling over in his grave!! I’ve tried to hang on since I’ve been watching since the 60′s but I’m not sure I can anymore. Not worth the frustration only for a TV show.

    Maybe he will be the new Bo since Peter Reckell is leaving.

  5. From April

    I think he’ll be Rex or Shawn D.

  6. From Joyce

    I would like to see Daniel get back to doing what he loves that is being a surgeon & a real good doctor,he needs to let Nicole go back to Brady she will always love him & they belong together & Kristen dose not need to come to Salem,I thank Kalya & Abe will get together

    Not thrilled with casting Greg Vaughan as Eric. AT ALL! I loved Jensen as Eric, and I thought Ritz Gregory did a great job on and off in the ’90′s and early 2000′s as Eric Brady as well. I’d love to see him back in the role. But Greg Vaughan, meh – too old and looks nothing like Sami. Frankly, there are better characters out there to concentrate on than Eric.

  9. From sam

    greg is to old to play eric and rex and way to young to play bo
    hello bo was in hes 50′s

  10. From sam

    hasnt the last shawn just been let go from bold and the beautiful? its anoying when they recast someone who looks nothing like the character and is way older or younger…eric should be fairish and early to mid 30′s just like sammi

  11. From Casey

    How can Sami be in early 30′s when Will is almost 20. Did she have him when she was 10?
    Couldn’t agree more about Daniel. He was a good likeable Dr. when he first appeared but is now just a bed hopper. Too many bed hoppers in Salem, can’t wait for Nicole and EJ to get back together again.

  12. From sam

    um they aged will by 7 years or so in typical soap fashion..sammi had will in 99 i think so he should really only be 13…what im saying is that eric should look roughly the same age as sammi
    greg vaughan is a few years older

  13. From Norma

    Dami was 17 on the show when Will was born,they now have Will at 20 which would make her 37 for DOL purposes. Which would also fit the time frame for the others babies

  14. From sam

    um hello will was like 14 3 years ago and in 2002 he went from like 3 to 9 when they replaced the actor again..then again 3 years ago he aged 3 years.. the actress that plays sammi is 35 in real life…anyhow isnt will betrayed to be only 18?

  15. From sam

    just figured out why it did not make sense to me…here in australia we used to be 4 years behind so sammi actually had will in 95 not 99 so they have only aged him 2 years or so..but when they did replace the actors the character always looked older

  16. From sam

    alison sweeney is 35 but she looks early 30′s so eric should look early 30′s…greg vaughan looks nothing like her being a twin and that and also looking a fair bit older

  17. From MaryJo

    Greg Vaughan is not that much older than Ali, he is 39, so he could play Eric. But I just read something about him not coming on as Eric, but as another undisclosed character, so don’t know who that would be.
    I never saw him on GH, though, to me, he will always be Dan, Piper’s hunky boyfriend on “Charmed”.

  18. From sam

    well i hope he does not play eric cause in my opinion he looks about 6 years older than alison sweeney and nothing like her to be her twin

  19. From daysgal

    I agree MaryJo, he is not much older at all. He is playing a younger character, just like Will and most other actors do. He is a cutie! I remember him from both versions of 90210. I think it will be great IF the writers know how to incorporate his character!

  20. From sam

    he looks nothing like sammi….how ridicolous….next they will be replacing nicole with eartha kitt

  21. From Travis

    Greg Vaughan is not too old to portray a man in his middle thirties and I think is a wonderful choice for Eric Brady.

    ~Travis~

  22. From sam

    the old brady ,the blonde one would make a good eric, blonde and early thirties

  23. From Angie RB

    Finally, we get to meet Sami’s twin! Poor Eric has been alone in Colorado since birth without parents, family or even a picture of him. I guess we can all hope Samantha will have a true ally now.

  24. From Angela RB

    Finally, we get to see Sami’s twin! Poor Eric has been alone in Colorado since birth. Lets hope Samantha will have a true ally.
