James Gregory "Greg" Vaughan, Jr. (born June 15, 1973) is an American actor.
Vaughan is the son of James Gregory Vaughan, Sr., and Barbara Ann Alt. Greg has Greek & Native American ancestry.
Vaughan was born in Dallas, Texas, and grew up in Mesquite, Texas. His grandparents were also a big part of his life, and lived in the small town of Fredericksburg, Texas, just outside of Austin. He spent summers in the country, and worked at his grandparents' restaurant, bussing tables.
Vaughan married Dutch model and actress Touriya Haoud on June 4, 2006. The couple have three sons: Jathan James (born May 4, 2007), Cavan Thomas (born January 19, 2010), and Landan Reid (born March 6, 2012).
The actor and former male fashion model has starred in soap operas such as The Young and the Restless and General Hospital. To date, his best-known role is that of Lucky Spencer in the latter, which he played from 2003 to 2009.
At age 16, while getting a haircut, he learned of a "Back to School" modeling competition, and sent in some snapshots. He was selected as a finalist but did not win. However, the winner encouraged Vaughan to pursue modeling, and Vaughan signed up with a modeling agency.
Shortly after graduating from Mesquite High School, he was invited to Milan, Italy, where he modeled for designer Giorgio Armani for two and a half months. More campaigns soon followed, with designers such as Gianni Versace, Tommy Hilfiger, Banana Republic, and Ralph Lauren.
While modeling in Miami, Vaughan started to become dissatisfied with the modeling life, and decided to relocate and pursue his dream of becoming an actor, in which he then moved to Los Angeles. His first role was on Baywatch, as well as on the pilot for a 1996 Aaron Spelling series, Malibu Shores, that lead to his future appearances on Beverly Hills, 90210 and was a cast regular for the second season of Charmed.
His next major role was from 2002 to 2003 as Diego Guittierez in the daytime drama The Young and the Restless. When the character was written off the show, Vaughan then got a call from the producers for General Hospital, who were seeking a new actor for the popular character of Lucky Spencer, son of the famous soap opera couple Luke and Laura. Vaughan was the first actor to portray Lucky as a full-fledged adult, with the part having previously been played by Jonathan Jackson and Jacob Young.
On September 28, 2009, Vaughan announced that he would exit the role of Lucky Spencer on General Hospital; he last aired on October 20, with original portrayer Jonathan Jackson re-assuming the role on October 27.
In the July 16, 2012 edition of Soap Opera Digest, it was announced that Vaughan would join the NBC soap opera Days of our Lives as Eric Brady, who was ordained as a priest before returning to Salem. He first aired on November 13.
In July 2013, Vaughan appeared in Second Chances, a Hallmark Original Movie, alongside Days co-star Alison Sweeney. The movie was filmed before Sweeney and Vaughn became siblings on Days of Our Lives.
