Vaughan like many others was skeptical about the character of Eric being re-introduced as a priest.
However, Vaughan looked at the plot twist as a challenge.
Eric falls in love with Nicole Walker; however the relationship ends in heartbreak which leads to Eric's departure.
In 2012, Vaughan stepped into the role and the character is re-introduced as a priest.
Vaughan reprised the role in January 2017, following a discussion between him and executives at Days of Our Lives.
Created by head writers, Margaret De Priest, Sheri Anderson and Thom Racina, Eric is the only son of supercouple, Roman Brady and Marlena Evans.
Others actors include Jesse Davis (December 6, 1985 to March 17, 1986), Edward Palma (August 7 to September 9, 1986), Bradley Hallock (December 18, 1986 to July 1, 1992).
In 1997, Scotty Hauser portrayed Eric in a voiceover.
Reports also surfaced that the producers considered actor Shane Mc Dermott, who was previously known for his portrayal of Scott Chandler on ABC's All My Children to take over the role, but executive producer Ken Corday immediately shot down the rumors, revealing that there were no plans to recast the role.
It was then announced that Vaughan would star alongside Alison Sweeney, who portrayed Eric's twin sister, Sami Brady in the Hallmark movie, Second Chances, which fueled rumors that the series was interested in Vaughan for the role of Eric.
Despite him being away, Sami is "confidant and connection" to their family and the rest of Salem.
