The Avant family grew by one when Adain Bradley 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). Bradley was born in Kansas, but raised in the United Kingdom, so he’ll be able to use his accent since his character was also raised in England.
Xander is Julius' nephew, making him Maya's cousin. He arrived in Los Angeles looking to make a fresh start in America and was hired as an intern at Forrester Creations. He soon became smitten and started a romance with fellow intern Emma, but then his ex, Zoe, showed up and it was clear she was what he'd been trying to get away from. She was still dangerously obsessed with Xander, and immediately set about trying to steal him away from Emma. Having been hired to model for Forrester, Zoe arranged for Xander to also become one of the models so they could spend more time together (often half-naked!).
Although Emma initially tried to put up a fight for Xander, it was difficult because she didn't want to have sex until she was ready while Zoe was happy to give the guy anything he wanted. Over time, Zoe turned her obsession down a few notches and started acting relatively normal, and Emma backed off, leaving Xander free to date his ex again.
