Theo says his time portraying this character and being part of the soapie will remain a highlight in his acting career. The platform afforded to him has been a great challenge to him as an actor as well.

He took the time to thank everyone on the production team and most importantly his fans.

"To all the fans, the people who have loved, supported, laughed and cried with Xander - Your love and support has been immensely important to me, much appreciated," he concluded.


His fans shouldn’t worry though because they will still see him on their small screens. His last appearance on the show will be on 14 January 2020.
