'Days of our Lives': Xander Cook is Alexander Kiriakis (Or Not)

Paul Telfer stars as Alexander on Days of our Lives.
On the April 8, 2015 episode of Days of Our Lives Xander Cook was revealed to be the long absent Alexander Kirikis. Alex is the biological son of Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth) and Anjelica Curtis, the role last played by Judith Chapman (Gloria on The Young and the Restless).

"Good to see you, Alexander," said Victor Kiriakis to Xander at the end of the episode. "Welcome home."

Alexander is a legacy character I have long wanted to return to the Days canvas. He is a blank slate that the 50-year-old soap can do anything with at this point. Since his biological mother is Anjelica, there is the added wrinkle that she was Jack Deveraux's (Matthew Ashford) step-mother at one time. Will Abby (Kate Mansi) or JJ (Casey Moss) be curious about what their father was like growing up? And what does Xander/Alex think of his own step mother, Adrienne (Judi Evans?)

UPDATE:
On the Wednesday, April 9 episode of Days, it was revealed Xander's name is actually Alexandros and he is Victor's nephew but not the Alexander Kiriakis viewers remember being born in 1989.

  3. Yeah, this is messy, lol. If he's not Justin's son, Sonny's half brother what's the point. Bring him in to be a plot point for Nicole and Daniel?!?! What a waste of a great opportunity.

  4. As the story unfolds, we now know that Victor once had another brother named Titus, who is deceased. Alexandros (Xander) is Titus' son. Victor indicated that Xander's mother is also dead.
