Xander was last seen when the warehouse exploded that changed the course of many lives back in October.

According to the official press release, look for Paul to share screen time with Eric Martsolf, Linsey Godfrey, John Aniston, Freddie Smith and more in provocative and exciting scenes in 2019

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..… Read more »

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!

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
