I am over the character of Xander, honestly. And I just want him to stay gone for good! As for Haley Chen… I’m excited to see what’s to come with her, especially if it means more JJ time!

Xander is the new Stefano. He’s so bad and does it with so much suave that you gotta hate him but at the same time, you don’t want him to go away forever. He always gets my attention when he’s on.

He gets my attention too. Is it bad to say he should do all his scenes shirtless? 🙂

Paul Telfer gets a let… when he first started @DAYS.. his scenes with John Anniston’ Victor Kiriakis were stunning… watching Xander come close to being accepted.. WANTING very much to be part of a family. ie: when he first started , @DAYS changed writing regime.. AND he was turned that quickly , hastily to a go to character to “write off” and was let go

watching Xander and Victor spar.. was stunning to witness… you could see an easy affable chemistry that was exciting to watch… YES YES YES I cheered Victor and nephew could work, grow, and become familial.. because Paul Telfer Xander has many outlets, layer of intrigue that IS EXPLORABLE…

^^ which is my hope and wish… down the road.. if he isn’t written in to a corner.. and as you’ve said.. which I agree… to find an actor, in this day and age.. newbie welcome respite… Paul Telfer is that suave, slick, maniacal, dubious means of nature.

with Ron Carlivati.. Sure, his shirt is missing.. yet I see that RC is surely steering Xander a continued mix.. even if I was totally surprised to see him as the bad guy that all of Salem it seems will hate him even more.. with his treatment of Nicole… YET it seems Nicole , is still alive and heading back to Salem… WHEW !!!! Oy.. ^^ per @4EVER. I had wanted a complete reprieve of bad guy Villain , when he returned Jeannie Theresa back to Salem.. which never happened.. that was disappointing.. especially since Victor was in on what was going on with Theresa. she assured Xander she would speak up on his behalf when they both made it back to Salem.

he’s an amazing actor who does have chutzpah … LOL… yeah I salute

with all the high caliber writing RC AND his co-horts are drumming up.. let’s hope this time around… he is given wings .. because he flies in my orbit

DANG

why not have him a part of the Kiriakis Empire.. he’s a viable contentious riveting hold… KEEPER

Patrick
Patrick

shoot, I know @DAYS films 6 months ahead… yet i’m fairly certain on my assessment… not that many may “care” about Xander… I do

I’m just glad he’s back on track… AND his take… keeps REELING

it just happened out of no where… how quickly Victor turned on him… so that was a clue right their.. that he was expendable

I have been soooo enjoying days…..yet, I don’t like this thing between Will and Paul. It’s so lame!! Will has such will power….pardon the pun. I know I could never sacrifice my love for the sake of what, exactly? Are there really such people in the world?
I could never be with someone else while passionately in love with another. I am soooo weak!! LOL.
As far as Xander, I can only take his aggressive machoism in bits and pieces.
If he survived the fire; did Nicole?…..too hopeful, I guess.

Yes, Celia, Nicole will return. It was inadvertently spoiled in the Xander returns story in The DOOL App when it was mentioned that Paul Telfer has scenes with Ari Zucker. It was a fun find!!!

American Idol contestant??

Why do I get the feeling that ReRon is going to come up with a new auto-tuned bubblegum singing waste of time like he did on the other two shows he ruined?

I’m glad Xander is returning.

BTW, loving the DOOL app!

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
