James Gregory Vaughan, Jr is an American actor.


 personal life
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 Touriya Haoud on June 4, 2006. On May 4, 2007, Touriya gave birth to a son named Jathan James Vaughan. On January 19, 2010, Touriya gave birth to their second son, Cavan Thomas Vaughan. On Aug 24, 2011 they announced they are expecting their child in March 2012.

The actor and former male fashion model has starred in soap operas such as The Young and the Restless and General Hospital. His best known role to date is that of the adult Lucky Spencer in the latter, whom he played from 2003 to October, 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, the part being previously played by Jonathan Jackson and Jacob Young.

On June 7, 2006, Vaughan won the role of the new spokesperson for I Can't Believe It's Not Butter in a ceremony in New York. The contest was created to replace Fabio.

In 2007, Vaughan appeared on Tyra Banks' talk show to help Tyra through "soap opera school."

Vaughn announced on September 28, 2009 that he wouldn't be playing the role of Lucky Spencer on General Hospital any longer. On October 27, 2009, Jonathan Jackson reprised his role he left in 1999.
