A familiar face is coming back to Los Angeles when Adain Bradley returns to THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL as Xander Avant! The actor is slated to reprise his role beginning in the episode airing on Thursday, Dec. 28.
Bradley first appeared on B&B as Maya’s cousin, Xander, back in June 2018. Hired as an intern at Forrester Creations, Xander sparked a romance with fellow intern Emma, but his obsessed ex, Zoe Buckingham, showed up and did whatever she could to steal him away. Later, Xander found himself wrapped up in the baby switch storyline when he discovered that Liam and Hope’s daughter was still alive and being raised by Steffy, but Thomas threatened him to keep quiet. Xander hasn’t been seen since August 2019.
Since his exit, Bradley has appeared in episodes of THE 100 and ALL AMERICAN as well as starred in the 2021 horror reboot Wrong Turn. The actor also played Mel Akuda in a couple of episodes of FOX’s FANTASY ISLAND series which starred his former B&B co-star, Kiara Barnes (Zoe)!
What brings Xander back into the Forrester orbit? Might he be wanting to spoil Thomas’ newfound happiness with Hope by not only dredging up the past about Baby Beth but also Emma’s death? You’ll just have to stay tuned to find out!
