In the glamorous world of soap operas, ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ introduces us to the intriguing character of Xander. As viewers are captivated by his presence on-screen, this article aims to delve into the depths of who Xander truly is.
Join us on a journey through the twists and turns of his storyline, exploring the complexities that define this enigmatic character on ‘The Bold and the Beautiful.’
Who is Xander in Bold and the Beautiful?
SoapCentral says that Adain Bradley plays him and is the son of Maisie and Claude Avant. Maya and Nicole Avant are his first cousins. Adain Bradley has played the part more than once, most recently from 2018 to 2019 and again in 2023. Claude and Massie Avant’s only child is Alexander “Xander” Avant.
He is the nephew of Julius and Vivienne and the first cousin of Maya (read more about that character here), Nicole, and Sasha. Xander was born and raised in London, but he gladly took Maya’s offer to move to Los Angeles and become an intern at Forrester Creations.
Xander thought the chance would strengthen his growing interest in graphic design. He also liked having an ocean between him and Zoe Buckingham, his girlfriend, who had become a bit “obsessive.”
After Xander moved to the United States, he put on a good accent and said he was from the Midwest and had just moved here. Emma Barber, an enthusiastic dancer and fellow intern, knocked him out as soon as he walked into Forrester Creations.
The two laughed about how hurtful their first meeting was, and over the next few weeks, they became closer and closer. When Emma took pictures of original designs that hadn’t been made yet, Xander stood up for her even though many people at the company wanted to fire her.
Xander Returned to the Series After a Long Gap
Xander is related to Maya Avant because he is Julius’s nephew. His goal in coming to Los Angeles was to start over in America, and he was hired as an intern at Forrester Creations. He immediately fell in love with Emma, another intern, and started dating her. But then his ex-girlfriend, Zoe Buckingham, showed up, and it was clear she was the person he had been trying to avoid.
When she realized she was still dangerously in love with Xander, she wanted to steal him away from Emma. Zoe got Xander to become a model for Forrester so they could spend more time together (often while they were both naked!).
Emma tried to stand up to Xander at first, but it was hard because she didn’t want to have sex until she was ready, while Zoe was okay with giving him whatever he sought. After some time, Zoe calmed down a bit and started acting more normally. At the same time, Emma stopped bothering Xander, letting him date his ex again.
They even told each other they would change how they talk, and they both did, taking on American accents. Before he got involved in the baby switch plot, Xander didn’t have much to do. That is until he heard Zoe and Flo Fulton talking about how Hope Logan’s baby was still alive.
Xander thought it was meant to keep this from Hope, so he rushed to stop her from ending her marriage to Liam Spencer and tell the couple the shocking truth. But Thomas Forrester stopped him because he wanted to keep Hope in the dark for his reasons.
But after Emma died in a car accident, Xander found proof that Thomas was to blame for her “accident” and set out to show that Thomas is a killer. However, when Thomas made threats against his life, and Zoe wouldn’t listen to reason, Xander gave up, quit his job at Forrester, and went back to Europe!
Xander returned to Los Angeles in August 2019 after discovering the truth to ensure that Zoe’s dad, Reese Buckingham, paid for setting up the baby swap. He also told Brooke Logan and Ridge Forrester about the proof he had found that Thomas was the one who killed Emma. Ridge, of course, didn’t believe it because he was his son.
