NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers find that Xander Cook and Sarah Horton have sure seen their fair share of interesting and chaotic ups and downs, with Xander always trying to get and keep Sarah in bed with him. While there’s no doubt that a lot of daytime and even primetime television stars find it awkward to mingle with their co-stars after a long and heavy session of making out in front of the cameras, that isn’t the case between the character’s portrayers Paul Telfer and Linsey Godfrey. As a matter of fact, Paul is good friends with Linsey and her real-life partner, actor Breckin Meyer and even recalls how he got to know the couple a little bit better. Here’s what he has to say.
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, the handsome actor offers this: “Well, it was funny because I’d been off the show for maybe six months. It was during a period where I was off the show for a while. I’m good buddies with Breckin [Meyer], her boyfriend, and we just bumped into each other. He was like, ‘Hey. My girl- friend’s on your show. You have to say hello to her.’ I was like, ‘Well, I’m not on DAYS at the moment, but if I ever go back, then of course I’ll say hi.’ And so they asked me back and the first script I get is me hitting on Sarah and then I Googled her and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s the char- acter that Linsey plays.’ So I just texted Breckin and go, ‘Uh-oh. This could be complicated!’ And then sure enough, every script got more like, “Come into the hot tub with me, Sarah.” And then all of a sudden they’re hav- ing a drunken, passionate one-night stand. I was like, ‘Oh, I should stop sending this stuff to Breckin. He’s not going to think it’s funny anymore.’”
NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Paul Telfer’s Relationship With Linsey Horton Isn’t What You’d Expect
Seeing how both Linsey and Breckin are so easy-going, their off-screen friendships actually made things easier for his character and Sarah Horton’s relationship in front of the cameras.
Paul continued, “But it just made life a lot easier, obviously, to have that ice broken before we even met sharing one of our favorite people, you know what I mean, and to have that in common and have that to talk about. And then more than anything, Linsey’s like Arianne. She’s super-prepared. She doesn’t take herself seriously, but she takes the job seriously. She’s always fun, but she wants to work, she wants to do good work. She wants to know her lines and just be able to rock and roll. I just feel really fortunate with all of the partners that I’ve had [and] to be finally given a legitimate romantic pairing that isn’t just going to be unrequited and have me put them in a cage or kidnap their child. I didn’t kidnap a child this time around, but obviously there was some chicanery involved with children. I just feel really lucky to have been paired with someone who at the end of a long day of crying over our kidnapped cancer baby we can have a laugh and just hang out and blow off steam. We’re very lucky.”
