Paul Telfer Joins 'Days of our Lives' as Xander

Paul Telfer will play Xander on Days of our Lives.
Paul Telfer has joined the cast of NBC soap opera Days of our Lives as Xander.

On March 12, Telfer tweeted a photo with "Mr. X" on his dressing room door. On March 17, he tweeted a photo of himself with the caption, "Prepare yourself America. You're just a week away from meeting this guy."

Telfer debuts on Days of our Lives next week.

Fans are wondering if "Xander" is actually Alexander Neil Kiriakis, the son Justin (Wally Kurth) had with Anjelica Deveraux (then Jane Elliot, who plays the mother of Kurth's Ned Quartermaine on General Hospital) in 1989. Sonny recently visited his half-brother "Alex" in Arizona, which helped fuel speculation that they are one in the same.

In late January, Telfer played the short term role of Damon, a hit man hired by Victor. Telfer's other credits include The Vampire Diaries, CSI, NCIS and Hotel Babylon.
