Telfer told People Magazine, “He was my mentor on the show in as much as Victor was Zander’s mentor within the narrative. Mostly because being around him, learning the lessons of brevity and wit and strength, all the things I hope to continue on from his style and bring into mine, ultimately it’s just gratitude in being exposed to such a consummate actor.”
On Twitter, however, he quoted a tweet shared by a fan which included a video of a scene with Telfer’s Xander and Aniston’s Victor. He said, “One of my very fave scenes. So lucky to have had the chance to learn from the master. Rest In Peace John.”
