Days of Our Lives spoilers say that Xander Kiriakis didn’t always feel this sexy. At least, not according to his portrayer, Paul Telfer. Here’s what he has to say!
Days of Our Lives News: Xander Kiriakis Wasn’t Always This Sexy
In a new interview with Soap Opera Digest, the handsome actor admits that he’s always been this comfortable with being considered a sex symbol, although the same can’t be said about his character. He said, “Sure, as opposed to a symbol of something less fun. When I first started on DAYS, Xander wasn’t that kind of a character. I didn’t really have to deal with the romance and sexiness side of being on a soap opera. Over the last two years, certainly that’s changed. I think it’s better for my character to be considered a little bit sexy. I’m quite happy to be among the ranks.”
He also said that being considered one of the sexiest men in the soap opera world makes him feel both amused and astonished. That’s only because of his past. He said, “I was a pretty awkward teenager. I was a little bit chunky, had really mad hair and Bugs Bunny buck teeth. When I first came to L.A., my very first agent was like, ‘So when are we getting your teeth fixed?’”

Now, when asked what he gets the most compliments on, Paul said, “I’m always taking my shirt off on DAYS, so general torso display is always being thrown out there. In general, when I meet people and they compliment me on something specific, it’s either my smile or my green eyes.”
Paul also explained that men are not immune to compliments. He put it this way, “When they’re coming from the right person, they can make your day. Another thing for me is I really like being kissed on my ear. So a gentle breathy kiss on my ear.”
