The Avant Family has grown by one now that Adain Bradley has joined the cast of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL as Alexander Avant! The actor might be familiar to viewers of RIVERDALE, as he played Trev Brown in two episodes of The CW series’ first season. He also appeared in the online series MR. STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT along with GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Haley Pullos (Molly).
Xander is the nephew of Julius, played by Obba Babatundé, which makes him cousin to Karla Mosley’s Maya and Reign Edwards’ Nicole. Bradley was born in Kansas, but raised in the United Kingdom, so he’ll be able to use his accent since Alexander was also raised in England by Julius’ brother and his wife. The only question is, will Julius be at all happy to see his nephew? The guy doesn’t seem to get along with much of his immediate family, but maybe the extended clan is okay?
