GH's Greg Vaughan Out

GENERAL HOSPITAL actor Greg Vaughan announced on his Twitter account that the soap is going in a different direction with the character of Lucky which doesn't include him.

As of today, with sad regrets, I will no longer be apart of what has been a big part of me and my families life. GH and TPTB have choosen to take a new direction. I THANK ALL of YOU, for the many memories we've shared and new ones to come!!! ALL MY LOVE, & BIG HUGS to YOU the FANS!!! I LOVE YOU ALL MORE!!!! GV

Some of Vaughan's co-stars tweeted their reactions to the news.

@lisalocicerogh (Lisa Locicero) Greg, you'll do great wherever you go.. But I will miss your smiling face terribly.

@NancyLeeGrahn (Nancy Lee Grahn) Heartbroken about Greg. However, this is a guy who worked constantly before GH and will continue you to do the same after GH. He is an amazing gentleman, a dedicated father, a committed and talented actor who is loved and adored by his cast. He will be fine!

@sarahjoybrown (Sarah Brown) @greg_vaughan I'm so sad & sorry to hear this. I know you're going to do great wherever you go. My love to you and your family always.

@BrandonBarash (Brandon Barash) I'm deeply saddened by this news, @greg_vaughan. Not gonna be the same without you next door. Your star will shine wherever it lands.

@Tyler2929 (Tyler Christopher) Everyone give GV your blessings please. He gave Lucky justice while he was there.

@DerkCheetwood (Derk Cheetwood) Our thoughts are with Greg V and family he will be missed by all.

DC's Jamey Giddens is reporting that Jonathan Jackson is returning to role that won him three Emmys in the 1990s along with three other nominations.


  1. Ten bucks says ATWT will somehow snatch him up.

  2. Peter,

    I doubt it. ATWT just signed several actors for return gigs. Why would they hire a West Coast based actor?

  3. I'm placing my bets on Days possibly for Eric Brady, Shawn D, or Nikki Alamain.

  4. I hate this! Jackson must be desperate to return to this crap-fest. Greg's Lucky was always written poorly...why is it going to be any better for Jonathan's? He'll find out how awful it is at GH just like Sarah Brown did.
