Xander looks to have perished on Days of Our Lives, but his portrayer, Paul Telfer, has plenty to celebrate!
Telfer was born on October 30, 1979, in Paisley, Scotland, UK, which means that he’s turning 39 today!
He graduated with First Class honors in Film Studies from the University of Kent at Canterbury in 1999. In addition to acting, Telfer has been a salesman, teacher, and also a painter.
His first job was a guest spot on the TV show Is Harry on the Boat? in 2002. This was followed up by an appearance on Mile High and Hotel Babylon.
He appeared in the TV movie Spartacus with Goran Visnjic (Timeless, ER), the mini-series Hercules in the title role, and the film Miss Conception with Heather Graham.
Telfer had recurring roles as Corporal Damon Werth on NCIS and Alexander on The Vampire Diaries, and did guest spots on shows like CSI, Body of Proof, and Once Upon A Time. He also recently shot a role in Green Fever, which he also wrote.
But of course it’s his role as Xander on DAYS that has won the hearts of soap viewers.
