Xander fans, it looks like this bad boy’s run will turn out to be a short one after all! Actor/model Paul Telfer is no longer with the NBC soap opera Days of our Lives. Telfer, who has the distinction of coming on to DAYS in two different roles within a four month span, let his followers on Twitter know of his exit.
Paul has recently been playing Xander Cook AKA Alexandros Kiriakis, and has been in Salem on-screen since March of this year, and he previously played Damon the henchmen for Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston) which he played on-screen in January. The actor tweeted on his status on DAYS: “I left weeks before Xander even aired, but because of the prod sched he’ll be on thru August.”
In story, Xander knows Serena (Melissa Archer) and Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) from their time in Africa, and he’s clearly holding the elephant statue diamonds over Serena’s head, or in collusion with her. Meanwhile Xander fallen for Nicole (Arianne Zucker), who is using Xander as a way to figure out the secret connection between Xander and Serena and what they have been up to.
