Xander Avant played by Adain Bradley
Xander is Maya’s cousin, who joined Forrester as an intern in June, 2018. He grew up in Britain. At first, Xander didn’t let anyone at Forrester know that he had a British accent. He wanted to fit in, so he told them he was from the midwest. Xander was literally bowled over by Emma when she first saw him. She was doing a dance routine, and he got in the way. She was very embarrassed and apologized after he woke up. Emma and Xander were both new interns at Forrester. They became good friends and started dating.
Xander’s ex-girlfriend, Zoe, followed him to Los Angeles. She worked as a painter, including painting a mural in Wyatt’s beach house. She had her cat, Harry, with her, that she and Xander treated like their child. She was a bit like a creepy stalker at first, but eventually, Xander realized that she just loved and missed him. He comforted her when Harry died.
They both agreed to drop their British accents and speak with American accents, to fit in more. Even though Xander chose Emma over Zoe, Emma wasn’t ready for a physical relationship, so she broke up with him. Zoe was happy to start up where they left off. Zoe became a model at Forrester, so she was working alongside Xander. Zoe’s father came to town, which caused her a great deal of stress. Xander worried about the secret she’d been keeping.
Xander seemed like a really nice guy; he might be a little bit of a wuss because he lets the women in his life push him around. Xander modeled a little for Forrester, alongside Zoe. He wants to be a graphic designer. He found out that Zoe was keeping the huge secret that her father had switched Hope’s baby Beth with a dead baby. He wanted to go to the police, but Zoe was afraid of going to jail and wanted to protect her father. Also, Thomas threatened them to keep the secret. Xander left town, going back to London for awhile. When the secret came out, he returned to face the music. He was not arrested, but he did lose his job at Forrester. He hasn’t been seen since.
