Fans got to ask Days of Our Lives star Paul Telfer (Xander) questions on Twitter, and you’ll love reading what he had to say to them.
Using the hashtag #AskXander, questions mainly focused on his character, but he was also asked some pop culture questions. Telfer seemed to have a lot of fun doing it and even posted a picture of himself with his computer saying the following, “Verification that this is actually me and not some impostor or evil twin. Let the fun begin.”
Thoughts on Xander
The handsome actor was asked who on Days of Our Lives he would like to work with but hasn’t, and he admitted to being a big fan of Kassie DePaiva (Eve). “So that would be fun.”
He said we could look forward to more mayhem and occasional snark from Xander. The actor was very careful not to give out spoilers, especially when he was asked about future fatalities.
He was willing though to share some tidbits about some of his recent work, like when he was asked about that choking scene with actress Jen Lilley (Theresa) (whether it was fun or was he scared he might hurt her): “[It] was actually a lot of fun to shoot. [She] is a tough cookie and kept pushing to make it look real.”
He shared his favorite DAYS moments from past and present.
“I loved all the stuff with Victor on my last run. The silent scream and park bench soliloquy.”
As for this recent stint on the show, “[It] was great to see everybody again – but working with [James Read; Clyde] and George [DelHoyo; Orpheus] was fantastic. They’re as good as it gets.”
Telfer also shared his thoughts on his devious character: “I think Xander thinks he is a good guy deep down, but that’s not the same thing ; ) I love how unpredictable he is emotionally. Gives me lots of room to play around in scenes and have fun balancing evil and charm.”
Thoughts on Paul
The actor shared that he is from Paisley, Scotland but currently bounces between New York and Los Angeles. He obviously keeps in great shape so one fan asked what he indulges in that isn’t as good. “Too much beer and Scotch,” Telfer shared.
His favorite TV shows right now are Quarry, High Maintenance, Bojack Horseman, Atlanta, Better Things…. and Dancing With The Stars and while he has too many favorite movies, when pinned to one he chose Robocop.
As far as which superhero he would like to play, the actor chose Batman and Wolverine – but said that they’ve been done to death.
“There’s a comic called Slaine that I’d love to do.” That would be fun to see!
