As Soaps.com reported at the beginning of April, Paul Telfer left his role on "Days of our Lives" in October 2016 when his character, Xander, was told to leave for Europe by his uncle Deimos. Salemites presumed Xander was killed by Deimos, so this will be a surprise for many when he turns up alive. Telfer reported on February 20 that he's returning to the show this year. Soaps.com has exclusively learned that he will be seen starting April 26.
